Motherhood: An Eternal Partnership with God

Thank you for posting this! I needed it today... I never thought of being a mom as doing God's work.

I try to think of the mundane daily chores; constant laundry, dishes, housework, cooking, as providing my family with the blessing of comfort, food and home.... and that often helps me.

My kids are 11, 13, 15 now... the challenges of potty training and tantrums in the grocery store are long past, replaced by different but no less challanging... challanges!

There are days I'm just lost as to what the right things to do are... My own parents did not have to cope with instant messaging, cell phones, FaceBook, or media which pushes the limits of modesty terrifically far.

The next time I have to put my foot down, in the face of teenage angst, I will take strength in what your video said; "you are doing terrifically well" and "you are doing God's work."

Thanks E.D.!
