You CAN expect something beautiful in motherhood.

But may I shoot straight with you for just a minute?

You can’t expect that beauty to come from:

  • mother culture
  • the memories you make
  • the atmosphere you create in your home
  • the photos you take
  • or even your child’s adorableness.

Of course, these things are beautiful and I hope you enjoy plenty of them, but we can’t count on them. They differ from woman to woman, from child to child, season to season. They change in value. They slip through our fingers.

As good as they may be – they’re not the best thing about motherhood.

The best thing about motherhood is that Jesus is inviting you to walk by his side and is holding your little one close to his heart.

You can expect something beautiful from motherhood because Jesus is with you. He is working through motherhood to show you more about himself and to help you become more like him. This is the heart-and-soul of my first book, Expect Something Beautiful: Finding God’s Good Gifts in Motherhood. It’s full of stories, practical advice, prayers, and life-changing scripture just for you.

I hope it strengthens you and every mom you know.
