Intentional Mothering

The Little Years: Wonderful Encouragement For Mothers (From Jani Ortlund)

If you’re in the midst of mothering little ones like me, I must encourage you to watch this message from Jani Ortlund. She is a wonderful biblical teacher whose book, Fearlessly Feminine, is one of my favourite books for becoming a Christ-centred woman. She is the daughter-in-law of Anne Ortlund, a well-known contemporary of Elisabeth Elliot – so you know this is going to be good!

I watched it while I was doing the ironing. The kids were playing round on the floor. There were interruptions. A couple of squabbles. And I only got through two shirts – but not because of the kids! Ha! As you know, ironing is not my forte, but I’m getting there!

Anyway, Jani’s message just reached into my heart and I can’t not share it. If this week – among all the things pressing on your time – you make one goal, let that goal be making time to watch this video. You will be encouraged, challenged, touched, and delighted. I know I was.

There were so many snippets of truth in her words. I want to watch it again so that I can write them down! All mothers need encouragement – no matter the stage – so even if you don’t have little ones at your feet but big ones leaning on your shoulder, this will meet your soul’s need as well.

 

If you watch it, please come back here and let me know. I want to know how you were helped and encouraged by Jani!
