She sits at a lobby table waiting for the completion of swim lessons. Surrounded by sulking kids, she is submerged in construction paper, conversation hearts and glue.

But now, oldest is fighting her on spelling word home work while the youngest is spellbound by minecraft.
She chews the inside of her cheek, trying hard not to let loose the words of frustration she is feeling. And I want more than anything to lay my hand on top of hers and say, “Stop”!
I know, I’ve been there. I’ve got emotional scars to prove it. I’ve been caught in the trap. And while I don’t always know how I got stuck in there, I do know together we can get out.
We can end the competition.
We can support each other in the trenches.

Welcome to the home of a reforming supermom. I too once believed the lie. I no longer find myself driven to be all things to all people. Now I know I just need to be who God created me to be.

And these are my stories.
I’m so glad you stopped by.
