If you’re a stay-at-home homeschooling homemaking mum like me, then you probably understand how blessed you feel to be at home raising your little ones, yet, there are tough moments, right? One minute your toddler is giving the sweetest cuddles, the next minute another child is seeking your attention whilst you’re busy cooking dinner, and then the dog is barking constantly at a bird. The busy, the chaos, the mess, the noise, the hugs, the kisses, the love radiating through the home, it can feel overwhelming, phenomenal, stressful, blissful, and exactly where you’re meant to be.

The Bible helps me as a mother. Praying helps me every single day through the good and rough times. Speak to God. Read God’s word. Listen for God. Absorb Bible verses to help you live a blessed life with your children.
