Why Just Survive When You Can Thrive by Keri Snyder (of Living In This Season) came at just the right time for me in my vocation as a mother.
As a mom to three kids 4 years old and under, life is usually chaotic. Once L started crawling this winter, I especially started cruising into survival mode more often than not. I'm a perfectionist and love a schedule, and it just wasn't happening. I felt like I was barely breaking even everyday (if that). I was really struggling with how to let go and enjoy the messy parts of motherhood.
I started reading Why Just Survive When You Can Thrive this spring, and with every page I was nodding my head in agreement. Keri addresses every worry and struggle that I've had as a mom. And through Bible verses and little challenges at the end of every chapter, she turns those fears and failures around into ways to thrive.
In this book, there are so many good one liners that really struck me - and stuck with me. I put them up around the house as reminders along with the 8 beautiful Scripture cards (see the last picture!) that come with the book. I know they will remind me to stay focused on choosing joy during the not-so-glamorous parts of my life as a mom.
Keri's reflections are truly an inspiration - and a beautiful invitation - to grow in my vocation as a Christian mother. I am definitely taking the time to contemplate the lessons in this book and really put everything into practice. Because motherhood is a beautiful gift - and I want to thrive in it for my kids and for myself!
