How to Survive and Thrive as a Mom

Back to Growth Plan List

In motherhood, the days are long and the job is sometimes overwhelming. We can get lost in the diaper changes and play dates, the school projects, and fights over boundaries.

In the beautiful chaos of motherhood, it is easy to forget God’s purpose in our lives and in our parenting. There are moments when all you can do is survive, and then there are moments when your heart swells with joy and your eyes fill with tears of pride. This is the life of a mom.

We’ve gathered some of our best material about the sacred calling of motherhood and put it together in this Growth Plan series to help you learn how to survive and thrive as a mom.

Find the Joy of Your Calling

Amidst the daily tasks of raising children, it is sometimes hard to feel like you can survive—much less thrive—as a mom. Here's how to find joy and fulfillment in the sometimes challenging calling of motherhood.

First Things First—Or Whenever You Can!

One of the challenges of being a mom is to find moments throughout the day to hear from God. When you look to God to fill you up, you will have the time, energy, and joy to be the best mom you can be.

The Virtue of Domesticity     

The world wants you to be competitive and busy. However, God wants you to focus on making a home filled with love for Him, for your husband, and for your children.

It’s in the Little Things   

You might not see the difference you make in your kids' lives on a daily basis, but you can be sure that God does.

You’ve Got This!  

Sure there are days when you struggle and make mistakes, but there are also days when you do it right. Trust your instincts, and know that God will give you everything you need to mother your children.

A Work in Progress        

High standards for yourself don’t matter in motherhood. What matters is that you are doing what God has told you to do.

Being Blessed        

As a mom, you have been given a high and holy calling. Ask God to revive your heart and to allow you to be a blessing to your children.
