To the Mom Who Feels Invisible

To the Mom Who Feels Invisible #momlife #encouragment #biblicalwomanhood

I think we've all been there. Feeling like we're alone, insignificant, invisible. Some of us have traded our education, our careers, our hobbies, our lives to constantly pour into our families and our homes. This act of service seems (at times) to go unnoticed and unappreciated. We may even be on the receiving end of judgement and scrutiny of others because by staying home, we're "wasting our potential." According to the world, this work, this continual act of service and love, isn't supposed to be as fulfilling as a long, successful, money-making career. *eye roll*

Are you feeling this way, my friend? Oh, how I wish I could reach through the computer screen and give you a big hug and tell you, "I've been there." Heck, sometimes I'm still there! This is for you.

I came across this video one day on Facebook. I honestly had never heard of this woman before. (Her name is Nicole Johnson and she has a book called The Invisible Woman: A Special Story for Mothers.) If this doesn't encourage your heart, I don't know what will. I found myself praising God and feeling so refreshed and renewed by the end of this video. Please, watch. You will not be disappointed.

Oh, dear friend, I hope this video brought you just as much encouragement as it did to me. My mission is clear and my mind renewed. Carry on, sweet momma. You are NOT invisible.
