Facing the Fear of Motherhood – and how to find JOY on those hard days

It usually sets in about the time that I hear my husband starting to snore. The house is dark and quiet. My two year old twin boys are sleeping happily in the next room. I have two more boys jumping on my bladder and kicking my rib cage. And that’s when it hits.

The fear. The insecurities. The worry and anxiety: I’m about to be a mother of 4 little boys and I feel totally unprepared.

Facing the Fear of Motherhood

This is not the post I had planned for today. I was going to talk about a passion of mine: natural and home remedies. But my heart has been battling this fear all week and I knew I couldn’t be alone.

Do you ever fear motherhood? Or that next season of motherhood? Or what that next pregnancy might mean? Or how in the world you will balance it all?

My mother passed away unexpectedly when my boys were 11 months old. They won’t ever remember her and my new baby boys will never meet her. This past year and a half has been a bit of an identity crises for me: trying to figure out what it means to be a good mom while grieving the loss of my own mother.

My in-laws are amazing and I’m so thankful that God has placed them in my life, but it’s not the same thing as having my own mother there (even though our relationship was far from the perfect mother-daughter relationship).

And so, all of this feeds into my fear:

How am I going to juggle this all?

What will my life look like with 4 little kids 2 years old and younger?

How can I keep my crazy active toddlers busy while I nurse their little brothers?

When will I find time to invest in my husband?

When will I find the time to invest in my relationship with the Lord?

How will I be able to shower, let alone find time to read God’s Word?

How am I going to be able to make 3 meals day????

What does a godly mother look like anyway? Whose model of discipline should be follow?

And the list of fears goes on…

These are the quiet thoughts I have as I lie in bed unable to sleep – thankful for the forceful baby kicks that mean my little ones are healthy and strong – but also fearful for what lies ahead.

I know intellectually how blessed I am. My family is healthy and growing. We have food on the table and a roof over our head. I know that’s more than many have.

But that doesn’t stop those fears from creeping in…

It doesn’t stop the insecurities from swirling around that I’m not cut out for this thing called motherhood…

It doesn’t stop the hormonal-pregnancy tears from flowing when my husband doesn’t understand the emotional roller coaster I ride each day. The pendulum of feeling grateful, ecstatic, and confident that I can handle anything with the gripping fear that God may have made a mistake in making me a mother…

Dear mamas, do you ever feel this way? I know I can’t be alone in this. I know, because even though God’s Word never says “Dear mama who struggles with fear…” He DOES give us hope and encouragment for when those days are tough…for when the tears won’t stop flowing and you feel so alone in this thing called motherhood.

It’s in these times that I KNOW the one thing I need to do is turn to God’s Word and yet it’s about the last thing I want to do. When I’m facing those fears of motherhood, that’s when I need to turn to these truths:

1) Given to us as a Blessing

Definition of blessing: “a beneficial thing for which one is grateful; something that brings well-being.”

I never really understood what a blessing children are to our lives until I read somewhere that while many times God says in His Word that having children is a blessing, he never ONCE says the same thing about money! Wow. That’s humbling to me. In those dark moments of fear, I gotta be honest, money sometimes sounds like more of a blessing (especially when struggling with financial fears).

On those hard days of motherhood, it would do us well to repeat to ourselves over and over: These children given to us by God, are meant to be a blessing in our lives, and for that we are to be ever grateful. 

“Behold, children are a heritage [or blessing] from the Lord,
the fruit of the womb a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
are the children of one’s youth.
Blessed is the man
who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.” – Psalm 127:3-5

2) Being joyful is different than being happy

We see from Scripture that we are called to be joyful in ALL things.

“Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Did you catch that at the end? We are to be always joyful, never stop praying, and thankful in ALL circumstances…because THAT’S God’s will for us. <— It’s God’s will, even on those really tough days to be joyful and thankful. Always.

I want my life to be joyful. I want to be characterized as a JOYFUL person. This doesn’t mean I’m always happy as some days of motherhood are just plain HARD. But God does give us what we need to be joyful if we just ASK him!

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” – James 1:2-4

I certainly wouldn’t call having children persecution and don’t want to liken it to have trials, and yet, even in those extreme circumstances, God calls us to have JOY. So how can I be disobedient when all He is asking is that I have Joy with my young kids? A very humbling thing to remember.

3) Give yourself permission to not always LOVE it

I love my twin boys and wouldn’t ever trade the last two years for anything…but there are those days when my boys are breaking down and throwing a tantrum inside Target that I just feel defeated. I don’t know what the best way to deal with the current problem is. Do I need to discipline more, less, differently, etc. There are days when I have two sweet little babies who are sick, I’m sick, and we all just need to sleep but I have to change diapers and make us something to eat, etc…I think I could go on listing hard days.

My point is, I’ve come to the place where I’ve realized that I have to give myself permission to not love every second of raising little ones. I read so many articles about how we need to just soak in and cherish every single moment of our little kids before they are gone and we miss it.

I want to make sure that most of the time I’m listening to that advice! I don’t want to rush through the little years always looking for the next stage so that I miss out on envying the stage we are currently in.

But some days I just yearn for when I can walk out to the car and all the kids buckle themselves in. I literally cry when I see families with older kids at the park and the parents don’t have to keep a hawk eye on their kids every.single.second. I dream of the day when I can let the kids quietly read their own books or work on their school work while sneak in a few minutes of Bible reading.

Oh, I know those seasons of motherhood will present their own unique challenges and problems and I may look back on my time with babies and toddlers and think how simple it all was.

But at least I could pee alone. Or take a shower.

On those bone-weary exhausting days, I think it’s okay to admit that being a mother is hard work sometimes. There are real struggles and valleys we can walk through…even when we do cherish and love our kids.

But the important lesson is to not wallow in that. Do not let yourself feel sorry for yourself. Don’t let the hardship of the day make you forget that your kids ARE a blessing to you – even when you just want to curl up in a ball and cry.

Repeat these truths to yourself throughout the day: God gave us these kids as a BLESSING and He will give us the means to be JOYFUL…even on those really tough days.

Do you ever face these hard days?

While my first steps in battling the fears of motherhood have to be turning to God’s Word and prayer, I also find it really helpful to hear from and learn from other moms who have been there. It can be really lonely being a mom sometimes. I feel really isolated – and so I’m so thankful that God has given us the means, through the internet, to give and receive Gospel-centered encouragement to one another. THAT’S the internet and social media at it’s best!

In my own personal reading, I tend to gravitate more towards books where I can learn step-by-step instructions, such as a finance book or cleaning and organizing. But I’ve learned, that books on motherhood give me so much inspiration. So even though I may not be learning a “step-by-step” guide, the encouragement and inspiration I get from these books is so invaluable. 

Books I Can’t Wait to Dive Into

A few of these books I’ve already started reading or skimming through, and I can’t wait to dive into the rest. Just looking at these books gives me encouragement and I’m diving in TODAY, promising myself that I will make good use of my time.

The Woven Heart by Erin Odom

TheWovenHeart-225x300Erin Odom wrote the essays in The Woven Heart during her first six years of motherhood – those years when the days were long and the nights were even longer. The years of late-night nursings, round-the-clock diaper changes, scrubbing potty training messes out of the carpet, and wiping boogers and spit up from both her clothes and theirs.

It was also the years of early-morning cuddles, made-up songs, read-aloud board books, baking cookies and muffins, play dates, and Curious George marathons on Netflix. Be encouraged and blessed by these words from someone still in the trenches when she wrote them. Laugh, cry, and, most of all, see God’s weaving of your heart through your motherhood journey as well.

 

From Grouchy to Great: Finding Joy in the Journey of Motherhood by Ruth Schwenk

FromGrouchyToGreat2-225x300It’s no secret that being a mom is not easy. But sometimes we can really allow our emotions to get the best of us. Why are we so cranky? How can we control our emotions so we can see the joy? With practical ideas and heart responses, From Grouchy to Great helps you find joy in the journey of motherhood!

This is a ninety-four-page guide to help us battle for Jesus to reign in our hearts and through our emotions. Grab a journal and study it solo, or go through it with some girlfriends!

 

On the Road to Joyful Motherhood by Jessica Fisher

OnTheRoadToJoyfulMotherhood-225x300Find yourself struggling or grumbling as you go through your day as a MOM? Wonder if Joyful and Motherhood are going in different directions? Take a breather with these thirty-one daily devotions designed to help you look on the bright side, examine your purpose, and redirect your heart, mind, and body to the glorious calling of motherhood.

YEEEES PLEASE – I really can’t wait to dive into this book. A 31 day devotional on finding the joy in motherhoood – that’s exactly what I need right now!!

 

 

The Steady Mom’s Freedom Guide by Jamie Martin

TheSteadyMomsFreedomGuide-225x300This book tackles two sides of freedom within parenting: practical freedom and soul freedom. Practical freedom represents day-to-day decisions that include aspects of mothering life like decisions about screen time (yours and your kids), meal planning, and discipline.

Soul freedom chapters of the book focus more on the heart of the matter – being kind to ourselves in the midst of stress, lightening up, and viewing our kids through the eyes of grace.

 

 

Facing the Fear of Motherhood2

Get the most out of the homemaking bundle - 5 FREE guides

Why the Homemaking Bundle is Worth it To Me This Year

Like I said above, these big eBook bundles can be a bit overwhelming to me – and so I don’t always buy them (in fact, the homemaking bundle is the ONE that I actually do buy sometimes). So I wanted to share a bit about why I think this year’s bundle is worth it (for some people).

A Parent’s Guide to Natural Remedies (Normally $99)

This video based eCourse is normally $99 but it’s included in the bundle this year. So basically you are getting this well researched, in depth, and practical course on making and using home and natural remedies for less than $30 (everything else is just icing on the cake).

I’ve only been through the first few modules of the course, but it’s amazing so far. As someone who has researched home remedies for several years now, I expected this course to be very basic but I am blown away by how much I’ve been learning. I can’t wait to log in and finish the course (it’s well worth the $99 in my opinion).

Two AMAZING eCourses for $30!!

A Parent’s Guide to Natural Remedies will give you the confidence you desire as a parent to learn how to use natural remedies to treat your child’s common ailments at home. You will learn how to use methods like homeopathy, cell salts, essential oils, probiotics, and more to treat things like fever, sore throat, ear infections, tummy bug, coughs, digestive issues, sleep issues, and first aid.

I’ve Made a Plan This Time

The reason I’m a little weary of these big eBook bundles is that I know I’ve not put them to the best use in the past before. So this year, I knew I needed to make a game plan to change that! So I created five guides for myself that go through five of the major categories of the bundle. And it has already helped me jump right into the amazing resources without feeling like I was wasting major time in this busy season of motherhood and homemaking I find myself in. And I know I’m not alone in that feeling so I made these guides available to you as well for FREE, check them out HERE. Here’s an example of my first guide:

Organize Your Life & Home Guide

Can I let you in on a little secret?

Pssst: You can enter to win a Bosch Mixer (worth $389.99) at the end of this article. Hurry – giveaway open only until April 27th.

These big bundles of eBooks kind of overwhelm me…and in fact, I don’t purchase most of them. 

Have you seen the latest one going around? The 2015 Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is on sale until April 27th and it seems like it might be the best bundle I’ve ever seen.

So why am I still a little hesitant?

As a busy wife, mother, homemaker, and blogger….I want to use my time wisely! I only want to say YES to things that will help me in my walk with the Lord and in my home. I don’t want to pack on unnecessary things to my life (especially with my twin boys due in less than 3 months).

I need to use my the time wisely that God has given me, because it’s so very limited. So what does this have to do with eBook bundles? With 97 eBooks, 7 eCourses, printable packs, physical bonus products, and more…this bundle is an amazing deal. But is it too overwhelming? Is it right for ME? In this stage, in this season that I’m in?

These ebook bundles overwhelm me!

Let me be honest for a moment

I was an author in the homemaking bundle last year, and while there were some really good resources in that bundle, I honestly didn’t make very good use of it. In May of last year I skimmed through some of the books but then May bled into June and before I knew it, it was Christmas!

Because I knew that this might possibly be the best bundle yet (just going off the physical bonuses alone!!), IF I decided to take part, I wanted to make the best use of it possible (and the BEST use of MY time).

I want to share with you (and give you FIVE free guides – see below) how I’m making the best use of my time, energy, and resources with the bundle this year – and how you can too. But first:

This Bundle Might Not Be Right For You!

I need to add this note in – that while I 100% think that the value of this bundle is amazing and I want to encourage everyone to buy it before it’s gone forever on April 27th – I just can’t.

Because this bundle isn’t for everyone. If you are anything like me, then you could use some help with your homemaking skills. Maybe it’s practical cooking tips, recipe ideas, organization skills, help with finances or debt, learning how to work from home, natural cleaning, motherhood, personal devotions, or some other aspect of homemaking. If you are looking for practical tips or encouragement in many different forms, then this bundle might be exactly what you are looking for.

BUT, if you are that mama who is hurting right now. That women that just needs to cling to Jesus in this season. That wife who feels alone and spiritually dry…then maybe this bundle isn’t for you. Maybe you need to just carve out 3 minutes in your day to read God’s Word. To soak in His love and pray for spiritual sustenance in this time. Maybe you need to reach out to an older woman in the faith and cry out for help. Maybe you need to just confess that you can’t do it all and be okay with that fact.

This bundle isn’t about being the “perfect” homemaker. It’s not about making cute DIY projects to show off to all your friends (and I’m sure that’s not your heart’s intent). And it’s not about piling more on your to-do list. If you are that mama that is struggling just to get out of bed in the morning and make breakfast, then this bundle might not be for you – but then again, if you are really needing help in running your home - maybe it is!

My Free Gift To You

So back to my main point. I set out last month to make the very best of the 2015 Ultimate Homemaking Bundle. If I was going to jump in and use the bundle this year, I wanted to get everything I could out of it – without spending my life reading through these eBooks.

Watch my video below on what I’ve created for you – For FREE – to make the most out of the bundle. And then continue reading for all the details.

If you have any questions about the bundle OR my guides, leave a comment and let me know! Now on to what’s included in each guide. (And remember – Every single one of the books below is included in this year’s bundle – all for one LOW price of $29.97.

Dear Homemaker, Are you struggling with managing your home?

Dear Homemaker,

Are you struggling with managing your home?

I hear you. Sometimes I look around my house and wonder how things got so out of hand.

Growing up, I never much imagined what my future home would look like. I didn’t spend house dreaming of my future wedding or family. I knew I wanted kids and a husband (one day) but never gave it any thought or preparation.

Then BAM, at 19 I found myself married to my dream guy with a one-bedroom apartment of my own…and absolutely no idea how to care for a house or a growing family.

…laundry, diapers, stretch marks, and never-ending meal prep… money worries, gritty floors, soap scum, and the stain that won’t come out of my son’s favorite shirt… holiday stress, and potty training… a husband who works long hours, a kid with the sniffles, stomach aches and a fever… and a secret dream to run my own little business from home.

That’s why when Erin and Stephanie created the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle, and invited me to be apart of it, I knew I couldn’t say no! Because as rewarding as it is, homemaking is hard work and it doesn’t always come easily.

Are there too many books in the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle?

Let me ask you a question.

Have you ever taken your family out for a buffet dinner… and then been disappointed when you couldn’t eat every single morsel on display?

Of course not!

Sure. There’s that first, breath-taking moment when you see and hear and smell the amazing meal spread before you… and you think, “Where will I even start?”

But that’s the thing… because you do start… with something.

Maybe it’s a tender flaky biscuit, or a piece of delicious roast beef, or maybe you’re like me and start with a piece of pie (mmm, blueberry or apple with whipped cream)?

So relax, enjoy, and start anywhere you like. Come back to the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle “buffet” as many times as you like. It’s all here for you.

Now It’s Your Turn

I think Kelly Patterson said it best…

“Caring for your home and meeting the needs of your family are ministries. If you choose to marry, God has given you a special assignment. Keeping a home not only requires time, energy, and creativity, but it also calls for skills and experience. I believe homemaking is an art, and to pursue the development of any piece of art demands time and talent.”

Do you wanna know a secret?

I sometimes get overwhelmed by the homemaking bundles!

Honestly – I didn’t even use the bundle last year. I wanted too – It just felt too overwhelming and now I’m kicking myself for not using this past year wiser. So when this year’s bundle rolled around, I knew I wanted to get the very most out of it – and so I have spent hours and hours going through the many books in this bundle, creating custom courses just for you – so you can get the very most out of this bundle as possible! 

Get the most out of the homemaking bundle

When you purchase the 2015 Ultimate Homemaking Bundle through my link by April 27th (and then email me your receipt to jami@youngwifesguide.com) you will get my five custom courses for free!

These courses are custom designed from all the different books of the bundle. I went through five of the biggest categories of the bundle – Revamping your finances, DIY products for your home, Organizing your life and home, Reinventing your cooking, and working from home – and created challenges to go through the different books in that category and get the very most out of this homemaking bundle as possible – with the least effort and time. Because let’s face it, we are all busy homemakers who could use a little help!

I will highlight more about my mini-courses in a post tomorrow (and tell you exactly what is in each of them) but for now, you can check out the homemaking bundle HERE and purchase it if you are ready to transform your homemaking today – and I’ll walk you through it step by step – for FREE!
