Not a Religion, A Relationship

I’ve been thinking about this month’s blog for the last week. I always pray about what topic I’m going to write about and this is what the Lord has laid on my heart. Here it goes…

There are four mommy bloggers and if you have been following us you have learned a little about us. We are all happily married, we all have children, and we all have faith. We have all shared stories about our families, saving tips, and how we manage our children.  You may think we paint a rosy picture of the perfect housewife and mother, and it may be hard for some of you to take us seriously because of where you are at in your life.

You may be a single mother, or you are in a bad marriage, or perhaps you have teenagers that you find very hard to love. I would like to offer you encouragement. I don’t have all the answers to what you may be going through; however, I would like to tell you that you are not alone. I would say to you, think positive and surround yourself with positive people.  Don’t be afraid to reach out to others that may be able to help you. There are people in the community that would love to help. If you were to ask anyone of us mommy bloggers we would tell you that we draw a lot of our personal strength from our faith. Owosso has a lot of wonderful churches.

I’ve heard people say many times that they don’t want to go to church because of all the hypocrites there. I’m not saying because I believe in God that makes me perfect, far from it. What I am saying is that church gives you a sense of belonging. Churches have outreach programs that may fulfill a need in your family.

Give it a try!!! There may be a lonely grandmotherly lady that would love to adopt a family, or a gentleman who was a “wild child” in his youth that would love to take your teenage son under his wing and show him the error of his ways.

When it seems that you have nowhere else to turn, try church. Find a place where you feel comfortable and at home. The saying in my family is: It’s not a religion, it’s a relationship.
