Keeping My Identity in Motherhood - Sunshine & Limes

The online world is such a crazy one. I have made some of the best friends here, and Stevie is no exception. It has been so great to connect with her, and when she asked if I would share my heart on finding my identity in motherhood, there was no hesitation. I am so honored to post as a guest on her lovely blog and to be included with a such an amazing lineup of mamas. Head over to Sunshine & Limes now to read my post, and check out the others from this series.

"I have struggled a great deal off and on with finding my place. Even before Henry was born, I worked part-time at a “meh” job, and I wasn’t sure what I really wanted to do when I grew up. Then along came this sweet, precious baby. Henry was all that mattered. The first few months of motherhood I am pretty sure I just sat on my couch in sweatpants..." [Read more]

Thanks so much for reading...and I promise I will blow the dust off this space and get a new post up soon!

  3. Katie, I enjoyed reading your article. I've both worked outside the home (both full and part-time) and stayed at home since my oldest was born. Both come with their own set of challenges. I wouldn't trade being home with my littles for anything in the world...but my goodness does it feel isolated at times. I've been the helicopter parent and now take a more free-range parenting mentality. It's all a learning experience and will never, ever be done perfectly. That's when we have to trust and hope that God will bless our efforts with our littles. I've seen you in action with Henry and you are doing a great job! You are doing the most important job you can do in this season of life, even if it means sacrificing yourself. Hang in there on the tough days. Time flies. And if you ever need a mama who can say "Been there, done that," reach out! I promise, we other moms can relate. ❤

    1. I don't know how I am just now seeing this, but thank you so much! Thank you for your sweet words. It is challenging, but so rewarding. I think you summed it up perfectly with "we have to trust and hope that God will bless our efforts with our littles." Thank you for reading and encouraging.
