Motherhood has taught me a lot of things, but one thing I didn’t expect was for it to completely change me—for the better.
It wasn’t long into becoming a mother when I realized that God was going to use motherhood to shape me, mold me, weave me into the person He wanted her to be.It hasn’t always been easy. It hasn’t always been fun. It definitely hasn’t always been glamorous. More than anything, perhaps, it’s been humbling. But the tapestry He’s making in me–and in you–is beautiful.
I wrote the essays of The Woven Heart during her first six years of motherhood—those years when the days were long and the nights were even longer. The years of late-night nursings, round-the-clock diaper changes, scrubbing potty training messes out of the carpet, and wiping boogers and spit up from both her clothes and her children’s.
I pray you will be encouraged and blessed by these words from someone still in the trenches when I wrote them. I hope you will laugh, cry, and, most of all, see God’s weaving of your heart through your motherhood journey as well.
