I was a working mom with my first and am now a very part time mom with my second baby and the advice both practical and spiritual rang true for me! I actually find I have become less intentional than I used to be with my time now that I’m home more.This is a wake up call and reminder to assess how I’m spending my time! I am, however, looking for work to do from home. You mentioned being a virtual assistant – is there a company you recommend for this? reply → Barbara May 8, 2018 at 12:32 Heather & Friends! Thank you for sharing your hearts and experience with working full time while parenting littles! My husband and I adopted our two foster sons (almost 3 and almost 2) last year. Before adopting, I felt called to my current job, and still do. However, with my now adult daughters, I was a stay at home, home schooling Mom & the struggles were not the same. I have found myself struggling with many of the same issues you all discussed. What a relief to know, “such as is common” and I’m not alone. But even better was the encouragement to lean into the Lord, trust HIS leading and be okay with setting boundaries that protect family time! Praying God’s blessing on each of you and your families. reply → Melanie May 8, 2018 at 13:11 THANK YOU for doing this podcast. Full time working mom/home balance really isn’t talked about much and i so needed this encouragement! It’s a constant struggle for me to pray against the guilt satan tries to dangle in front of me and give my situation to God alone. It can be overwhelming at times trying to juggle it all, and not even working in my dream job full of my passions, but working to help pay the bills. If this is you, there is GRACE in that too! Setting boundaries for your family is a great reminder. Again, thank you for this encouragement and for always pointing back to Christ. reply → Holly May 18, 2018 at 08:58 ThankYOU ThankYOU ThankYOU. I’m not a ‘corporate’ mom, but I am a working mom. I needed to hear so many things that you ladies talked about on this episode. My mind and my heart are always torn or at war trying to find some sort of sanity daily in my relationship with God, my husband, kids and work. reply → Meg May 21, 2018 at 09:34 SO SO good!! Nourished the heart of this first time, working mom. We need to be talking about this more in the church! Loved the practical and spiritual guidance too. reply → Alex May 21, 2018 at 10:52 This was wonderful and really reached my heart. I recently returned to work after our second son’s birth. This has really been hard and truthfully still discerning what God is planning for our family. As beautiful as many podcasts are, they feed the guilt I feel as many are stay at home mom’s. This really helped me feel some validation! Feeling very blessed with all that God had provided! reply → Jessica May 23, 2018 at 11:39 Thank you so much for this – I just got a chance to listen to this but it was so encouraging to this mom’s heart. I just went back to work about a month ago from 9 weeks off with my third boy (so maybe that is why it feels so hard because we broke the 2 kid barrier, haha!) I am still constantly struggling with am I supposed to still be working or at home – it is a daily battle/wonder of where I should be/want to be. Thank you also for saying how lonely it can be. My husband also works a lot, and because I have 4.5 year old, 2.5 year old, 3 month old I am home alone a lot in the evenings and weekends and don’t have the energy to get out alone with the three of them much. So I constantly feel like I am missing out on life and friends – it is very lonely. I don’t want to mom alone, but I feel like I have been searching for “my tribe” or mom group for so long, and keep coming up empty. I have tried to start working mom support groups (mostly through our church) which was first met with resistance, but then I think just hard to make it work because working moms are so physically busy with time constraints. I need to just keep praying and trusting God and make my mom and sisters (who live states away) talk to me on the phone all the time! This podcast makes me feel like I have a little community, but I would love people connections in the same stage of life. Also, Heather that was an incredibly sad story (and probably hit me harder because my kids are the same ages) but yet such a great reminder to trust God in everything. Anyway, thanks for this and I will try to keep creating what I need and hopefully something will stick 🙂 Leave a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
