Be honest, mom…
How many times since you brought those blue or pink bundles home from the hospital have you just wanted to quit trying?
How many times have you caught yourself thinking about what a failure you are?
How your one big mess-up will probably land that little person straight in the counseling chair?
It was during a phone call with a friend that I finally decided I might not be the only mom with these kinds of issues.
* In ONE conversation I knew I’d met another human being who understood.
* That ONE phone call inspired me to step out from behind the curtains of my life, where I was trying to hide how hard it really was, and into the light.
* ONE simple phone call empowered me to connect with other mothers of boys and tell my truth…because I suddenly knew that if I felt alone and desperate in my mothering, there had to be other moms who felt the same way.
Join me (Brooke McGlothlin) and Home with the Boys (Erin Mohring) as we interview BoyRaiser Tribe Manager, Gina Smith about the power of community to drastically change our lives and keep the enemy from beating us down.
As Stacey Thacker said about The MOB Society: we’re made up of moms who are cheering each other on!
“Community for me was like drawing the curtain back and stepping into the light.” -Brooke
“You don’t need me—you need Him!” -Gina
“The Tribe combines the two things we get asked about most: prayer and connecting with other moms.” -Erin
