A family is a growing tree of life, love, and faith. As mother I am the Anchor and a Nurturer, teaching the life lessons that last forever. It is up to me to build the foundation for her to crawl, stand, walk, and eventually build her identity upon.
In order to do this I have to grow as a christian, as a woman, and as a mother. We all have to. Life is not static. It moves, changes, flows, and breathes. Everyday I change, so does she, and so do you. Life can be difficult if we view it as a stable, concrete, thing, it isn’t.
We grow because that is the one truth that we all know to well. Change comes in the form of the Good and the Bad. Lost jobs, broken hearts, births, deaths, joy, hope, sorrow, and love. It all comes racing non-stop without fail.
The question is, do you know where you are going? Because where you go your child and family are sure to follow necessarily. If you do not know where you going it is important to find out.
When you do not know where you are going someone else is making that decision for you and your family, whether the forces behind the wave pushing your family along are the media, random people, good, bad or ugly is something to figure out and change.
A family is an evolving living thing. A place were children are raised, taught about the world, and introduced to God. Mothers are the Anchor and fathers are the Guides. What your family seeks determines where it goes. Growing Mama Sprouting Child is about that Journey.
What is your family seeking? Who is guiding your family? Who is your family’s anchor? Where is your family going?
In order to be a Nurturer and Anchor and or Guide, we mother’s have to grow in order for our children to sprout from the soil we have sown with conscious intent.
