Daisypath Lilypie Lilypie Trying to Conceive Event tickers

Sunday, November 19, 2006


In the last few months I have started to attend church again after not really going for five years. I've also been part of a bible study with a few of the moms in our playgroup. We've been reading The Mission of Motherhood a few chapters at a time and then meeting on Wednesdays to discuss it. This book has shown me so many different ways to be a better mother and realizing just how important my job as "Lucas' Mommy" is.

I know I have mentioned the church thing here and there in my posts but I never really discuss it in depth. For some reason when it comes to personal things like my boobs I can go on and on but when it comes to something like God I clam up. I find myself too scared that I will offend or bore someone which is something I don't really struggle with when I write about any other subject. At the same time for a while I was only thinking about the "God stuff" on Sundays and Wednesdays but lately it just isn't enough anymore. The more I pray and the more I study and learn the more I feel like I am being spoken to on a deeper level. Even with all of these new and deeper spiritual "feelings" I still find myself struggling with having a basic faith.

I'm trying to visit as many of the NaBloPoMo blogs as I can and I thought I'd say hi, I liked your blog.. :) I had a thought on this - are your boobs really that personal anymore? I'm not a Mom, I just have cats, but other friends who've had kids have commented that they don't feel like their breasts even belong to them anymore. So maybe the more personal thing is your relationship with God? It's just a thought.. :)

I totally agree Kari! I have truly enjoyed our gatherings on Wednesday's, not just for the new friendship's, but also to enrich mine and Sophie's life. That is definately what this book has done for me!
