This Is Us: A Mother’s Word for her Unborn Children

I am a huge fan of This Is Us, the hit NBC series starring Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia. This is Rebecca (Mandy Moore)  speaking to her soon-to-be-born triplets.

“I will protect you fiercely.”

“I love you so much it hurts and I haven’t even met you yet, it’s crazy.”

“You are gonna have to take the good with the bad when it comes to me.”

Relate much?

Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe

Back when I was still single, I prayed that God will give me His best. And now that I am married for four years, I need to be reminded to continue to pray for my husband.

In 2016, I attended a Women’s Conference at Grace Covenant Church, Chantilly, Virginia with Sharon Jaynes as its conference speaker. She is a best-selling author and co-founder of Girlfriends in God. She is such a dynamic and inspiring speaker!  

I bought her book Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe upon learning that as a wife, I am given the privilege of being my husband’s mighty prayer warrior. It’s basically a 30-day prayer guide that gives powerful Bible verses along with corresponding prayers to target the most important areas of your man’s life. I try my best to pray for my husband on a daily basis, especially since we are both experiencing the challenges of parenthood. The cool thing about reading this devotional is that the verses and the prayers can also apply to yourself.  In the appendix section of her book, you can also find additional prayer topics such as:

Praying for His Salvation

Praying for His Fatherhood

Praying for His Healing

I am currently on Day 27, and I plan on re-reading it when I’m done with Day 30.

 

I wish you could hear the sound!

From Maidenhood to Motherhood

Click to buy on Amazon

If you’re just like me who took a while before embracing my new mom bod, you are not alone. Many women feel like they have lost a big part of themselves when they become mothers. I especially felt insecure when my body changed after giving birth to my two kids. Stretchmarks, loose skin, you name it.

But ladies, we do not need to feel depressed or insecure because your body is amazing! YOU are AMAZING to be able to give life to a human being.

Alexa Wilding is my inspiration for embracing the mom bod:

“That’s when I realized what really happened to me. It’s this maidenhood to motherhood transformation… and we, as a culture,  we want to stay in maidenhood as long as possible. So many women are trying to erase that rite of passage from their bodies, from their faces, their experiences.”

“I’m starting to feel a new sexiness. It’s like a little seed that is just starting to sprout. I don’t know what it’s going to be and what it’s going to look like but it’s coming.”

“I want to dispel the myth that we have to go to crazy lengths to erase maternity from our bodies. Because it’s not going to work. We’re still going to be mothers. We still left point A and got to point B and we should be proud of all the steps we took to get there.”

 

So moms, be proud and stand tall! Love the NEW and BETTER you! And let’s continue to support one another as we raise the future generation.
