"We, as moms, strive to be everything to everyone. We try to make home as comforting as possible, we try to ensure our children are ready for whatever life may present, and we try to create a life where memories are made.

"As I slowly began to acknowledge His will be done, I also began realizing it is through His desires that He will help me. If I am willing to accept His will, and if I am willing to allow Him to equip me. If I am willing to be open to His guidance." We all struggle at times with a "why" when it comes to God's will. In today's piece, I encourage us all to reframe those moments, based on my current struggle, to seek a "how" to best live His will for our lives. How can we each allow Him to lead us Home?
