Have you found yourself trying to “keep up” with everyone and everything in your life as a mom? Whether consciously or subconsciously… you might have even convinced yourself that you’re not doing enough… or need to do/be more to prove your value as a mom, a wife and a woman?
Well I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately, as I’ve had to shatter some pretty limiting and toxic thinking over the past few years regarding my motherhood… and I hop today’s “Car Chat” encourages you to do the same!
Today… we’re chatting about our “capacity”! Click below for my thoughts and encouragement!

Today Hubby and I Celebrate our 7th Wedding Anniversary and what an amazing journey it has been so far! From purchasing our first home together, become first time parents, multiple career transitions, the passing of loved ones, overcoming and working through disagreements, watching God provide abundantly during a pandemic, overcoming illnesses, learning how to raise a toddler… and so so so much love, joy and laughter in the midst of it all… the growth has been unmatched and our marriage is stronger because of it all!
But I have to take a moment to share the real secrets behind our thriving marriage, something that so many people talk about and perhaps seldom actually rely on! Watch my Reflection video, and be sure to check out 7 biblical principles I live by as a wife in my marriage!
And as always…. be sure to share with someone who needs it!
7 Biblical Principles I live by in my Marriage:
1 Always check yourself first before expecting God to check your spouse (Matthew 7:1-3)
2 Listen more than you speak (James 1:19)
3 Only God can change your spouse (Proverbs 21:1)
4. Pray about everything… EVERYTHING (Philippians 4:6)
5 Withholding sex as strategy is not of God (1 Corinthians 7:4)
‼️It’s OKAY to celebrate YOUR husband and the ways he steps up to support YOU as a mom, even for things other people say isn’t a big deal because that’s what he “should be doing”!
Just imagine what a difference it could make if the next time your husband steps up to support YOU as a mom (especially after doing the work to be specific in askingfor the support that you need from him)
you replaced your…
❌“It’s about time you stepped up” attitude/comment
✅ “Babe… I see you stepping up for me and the family”
✅ “Thank you so much for making me/us/this a priority”
Or a simple
✅ “Thank you. I appreciate you”
What we focus on… whether with criticism or encouragement… is often what we SEE repeated!
Am I encouraging my man and letting him know I appreciate the ways he’s supporting me and the family? (Yes, even while you’re working on other areas?)
Or do you find yourself **ONLY** highlighting his mistakes, failures and how he’s disappointing you?
Listen no husband/wife or marriage is perfect… we all make mistakes, fall short, miss the mark… but I find it to be so very important to celebrate the moments when we get it right, as we work on those other areas!
You can do both! Stop letting culture dictate what’s worthy of celebrating in your marriage!
Momma, I know firsthand the power of recognition/celebration/making deposits.. and I promise you… making deposits and empowering your husbandwill only do wonders for the future of how he supports you as a mom!
Listen, most of us as moms already know just how important self care is, yet many don’t feel supported enough to actually get the time they know they deserve and need! I don’t play about getting my husband on board to support me, and I don’t want you to be left in the dark. So go ahead and grab my freeMommy Support Cheat Sheet, where I share a quick overview of my proven method to help you set the stage (and create your own “D-Day”) and finally get the mommy support your crave from your husband! Yes, this is LITERALLY what I do!
