Practical Advice for New Mommies


About a month after Drew was born, my sister-in-law hosted a baby shower for us. And one of the “games” she organized involved sharing advice with me on what it would mean to be a mommy. I loved what this one friend shared on practical ways to get through the difficult times. 🙂

Don’t evaluate yourself when tired.
Remember to laugh at “disasters”.
Enjoy each moment.
Wisdom comes from God–pray!

Welcome dirt, footprints and bugs! (they come with boys!)
Incredible moments come every day!
Late nights will pass.
Love God –keep Him first!
Integrate God’s Word into children.
All frustrations are worth it!
Motherhood is such a blessing!

(To see some more advice that was given to me, check out this post.)

    I wish so much we could come to your housewarming party! We are in the process of fixing up our new house to get it ready to move into and our Saturdays are packed! Thanks so much for inviting us! We would have loved to come!

    Oh, and I wanted to tell you that your “Supper on a Bun” recipe is a family favorite! Every single one of the kids like it, which is quite remarkable! Thanks again for introducing us to the recipe! 🙂
