I'm A Gatekeeper
I follow Sally Clarkson on Instagram and Facebook. I have read most of her books. She has both inspired me over the years and has been a person who has been a kindred spirit when it comes to mothering.
Mothering is the hardest work a woman will ever do, and it is a noble task. It requires self sacrifice, late nights (all nights, sometimes), early mornings. It means training, and persevering. It means at times offering empathy rather than punishment. It requires intentionality.
It requires Grace - both from us toward our children and to us; accepting the Grace that God offers us in the moment we need it.
We shape the world as Mothers. I pray that mothers everywhere will rise up to the task God has given us.
