Learning on the Journey

31 Days of Fearless Mothering

2 Comments

When I wrote my to-do list Wednesday morning, I didn’t put “call 911.” 

I didn’t write “watch as daughter is taken to the hospital by ambulance” or “research medical emergency doctors can’t explain.”

But that’s exactly what I did.

How ironic that this happened just as I was about start 31 Days of Fearless Mothering.

How do we mother in a world where bad things happen? 

How do we live in peace for our children?

How do we face unknowns?

This passionate mother-love, this God-given maternal instinct that would make us die for our children if necessary, can sweep us right past normal caution into a life controlled by fear, and that fear can suck the life out of us and our families.

Mamas, I have been there.  So many times.  Fear was the air I breathed as a young bride and new mom.

And God helped me to overcome, to learn to live in freedom.

I tell the whole story in my ebook, Fearless Mothering, that I’ll release in November.  (I’m giving away lots of copies, so check back for updates!)

And this month I’m joining The Nester and hundreds of other women who are writing on a single topic for 31 days—in my case, learning to let go of fear and be moms of courage and faith.

The world can be a scary place—but I have a great and trustworthy God.  I want to talk about that this month. 

Won’t you join me?
