Have you ever felt like you aren’t enough as a mom? Have you ever struggled comparing yourself to others? On today’s podcast Keli Reese joins me to talk about overcoming mom guilt, the power of surrender in motherhood, and the concept of the “ministry of motherhood.” It’s a conversation filled with wisdom, laughter, and valuable takeaways for every mom!
Mom guilt is that overwhelming feeling of not doing enough as a mom, not doing things right, or making decisions that may “mess up” your kids in the long run. I start out this conversation with a confession of mom guilt I experienced the night before—and my kids are all grown! Goodness!
Some of the highlights of this conversation include:
- How to move from asking for God’s help only about the big things in life and move to asking Him for help for even the small, everyday things.
- How to rehearse the truth about a moment right when we’re feeling guilty–Keli gives us practical how-tos!
- How to resist the comparison trap because it sucks us into mom guilt so easily.
