Welcome to the Simply Convivial Audio blog, where we practice managing our lives with fruitful, faithful resilience, overcoming distraction and discouragement, so we can glorify God in our work and our attitudes.
Motherhood shifts our perspective on life. Today’s episode is a baby shower devotional I gave at my sister-in-law’s baby shower three years ago. In it I share good news, bad news, and good news about how we change when we become mothers.
Let’s dig in.
Motherhood is one avenue for sanctification – one of many, but a very effective and intensive one. All the phases that will come and go are double-edged means. They are calls on you to serve God by loving and discipling your children through them and they will be tools God uses to love and disciple you.
I’d love to have you join in the mission of Simply Convivial: to organize our attitudes and do the right next thing to glorify God and enjoy Him forever – starting now. Visit Simply Convivial Membership to learn more about how to do that.

Danielle gave this tip:
I review my brain dump from the last week or so when i’m sitting in carpool lane or at kids gymnastic lessons.
and my own addition:
Don’t overthink the brain dump – it’s not a finished product, it’s a constant brainstorm
