"I don't have time for cheesy." That's what I told my counselor the first time she told me to unspin the spiral of words in my head into mantras.
Now they bring calm to the chaos and to my little loves as well. I have three boys, and they also have minds that think and hearts that feel, so what a gift to help them find God's truth to ground in. I believe there is no greater gift we can give our children than what God says. My prayer is that they can release their own mantras to the world freely as they see us mamas releasing ours.
You can try these out for size, and create mantras for your home with me in my online course -- coming in March.
Because mamas need simple and steady. Mantras are a word or phrase that you repeat, bringing calm and kindness to the time you are in. When our root is in the righteousness of Christ, we know abundant life even in the middle of the flurry, the hard, the swept up, the pain, the sleep-deprived, and the weary.
Find the words you most resonate with and then stick them where you see them (bathroom mirror, next to your toothbrush, by your coffee pot, or save them to your phone) to make the most of these kingdom days on earth. I'm so proud of you for showing up in the swirl of motherhood.
What a miracle, huh?
