We’ve all been there and we know that the feeling of overwhelm, though common, is not God’s best for any of us. There may be items in your schedule God is nudging you to walk away from. Maybe He’s wanting you to take a deliberate pause and press into Him.  Maybe you just need to say no to some things. Please understand, there’s no shame in being overwhelmed. It happens to all of us. Remember too, these days won’t last forever. Don’t be afraid to ask for help where you can and don’t forget, He has you right in the palms of His hands.

Today we’re chatting about the overwhelm of motherhood. Between the three of us, we have 16 children and have experienced more than our share of overwhelm in our mothering journeys.
