It’s only Tuesday, the second day of our Hope for the New Year book club and I’m having trouble coming up with the words to describe my amazement of what God is already doing through this study. Moms are sharing the very core of their raw emotions and broken selves with one another. These are women of God, sisters in Christ. They come from all corners of the world, in all different kinds of seasons of life and walking through circumstances of kinds. There is no judgement…only grace and acceptance and love from each precious one there and for one another. It’s truly remarkable.
I had no idea how big this was going to be. How deeply this study of Hope for the Weary Mom: Where God Meets You In Your Mess by authors, Brooke McGlothlin and Stacey Thacker, would penetrate my heart. The book itself, the words spilled onto each page, inspired by God and written by two moms desperate for Jesus to meet them right where they are….THAT alone blew me away and spoke deeply to my heart.
But now, spending time reading and conversing with a community of moms walking through motherhood, through life, feeling in their hearts the same way I feel most days…THIS, I really have no words adequate enough to describe how blessed and thankful I am for each woman there willing to lay it all out on the table, to be real and speak the truth of their inner most parts. It’s truly blessing me beyond words.
If you are a mom that could use some understanding and grace, some fellowship and some encouraging HOPE, will you please join me, Brooke and Stacey along with hundreds of other moms just like you and me over at Hope for the Weary Mom? You won’t regret it. We started our study Monday (January 7th), so it would be really easy to jump right in and be blessed.
Here is the announcement of the Book Club where you can learn all the details and sign up. And here is the first post from Monday with Stacey’s video message to you along with some amazing conversation going in the comments area.
We’d love for you to join us and find Hope for the New Year!
