WHAT IS LOVE TO YOU?
To me, love is choosing to put another person’s needs above my own. With kids, as with anyone else, it doesn’t mean giving them what they want no matter what, but it does mean sacrifice. Intentionality in the way I give them importance in my daily life.
THE MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT IN MOTHERHOOD?
I live my most memorable moment every so often, and it’s when both my boys, who are small enough to be snuggly but wiggly enough to be nearly impossible to pin down at the same time, just come up to me and give me the biggest bear hugs at the same time. Holding both of their little bodies with their little faces against my cheeks makes me tear up every single time. My husband and I struggled with infertility for a year and a half before getting pregnant with our first born, and then had two within 11 months of each other! So in those moments, with two pairs of little arms wrapped around my neck at the same time, my heart can’t contain its gratitude.
ENCOURAGING MESSAGE FOR YOUR CHILDREN?
You are so unconditionally loved by your dad and me and by our heavenly Father, that you can be free. Free from things like worry, striving, and insecurity; as well as free to truly love others, discover the plans God has for you, and simply be.
