What is your most important role : Mom or Wife?

There is a homeschooling mother who lives just round the corner from me .... literally.  And today she wrote something that I really just wanted to share with you today.  A post that touched my heart and took me back to the place of making sure that I have my priorities in the right place.  Because though I am gifted in multi-tasking, it can also lead me to become very distracted and forget to keep the main thing the main thing.

"The most important thing is not that I am the Best Parent Ever.
Or that I am the Best Mother.
Or that I am even the Homeschooling Success Story.
The most important calling for me, first and foremost should be my calling as a wife."
Sadly there is so much truth in that.  I have yet to learn the lesson or should I say, be reminded of this core value... but why don't you head over there now and let her minister to your heart.  Her openness and honesty gave me the opportunity to truly evaluate where I am.  You can read more here

  1. I'll head on over and read the rest of her post, but I just wanted to say that I've been learning about that quite a bit in the last few years. It can be so easy to let the kids come first, but we will better serve them by putting our husbands first.


Go ahead, leave a comment! I would love to hear from you!
