I’m honored to be guest-posting at my friend Lauren’s blog again today! I hope you are inspired and encouraged, mamas.
Cultivating Creativity Through the Various Seasons of Motherhood
I was so excited to learn that Lauren had chosen “Seasons of Motherhood” to be her topic for May. At first, I was tempted to write something along the lines of “enjoy whatever season you’re in – they all go by so fast!” We have likely all heard our fair share of wisdom along those lines, however, so I began to brainstorm more about this topic and finally came up with what I wanted to share with you all today. I hope you are encouraged!
You Can Still Have Interests and Talents!
Mama, do you remember the woman that you were before you became a mom? Maybe you were the woman who loved to write and had dreams of being an author. Perhaps you loved art and regularly set aside time to make a masterpiece on a canvas. Maybe you were a voracious reader. Maybe you felt so alive when you were out volunteering at your local soup kitchen or women’s shelter. Or perhaps it was an Etsy shop you ran. Maybe it was something else altogether!
But whatever your interest was, it was there. You had interests. You had hobbies. You had your own unique set of giftings that you knew were given to you by God to use for His glory.
Then you became a mom. And you bought into a lie that you are now too busy for any hobbies or talents or interests outside of your children.
