Awesome Post On Modern Motherhood!

Mrs. Parunak has written a great post called Why Modern Motherhood Is So Much Harder Than It Ought To Be: Part I. If you're a new Stay at Home Mom and/or could just use some more encouragement in regards to all this mommy/homemaker business, you're not alone! Take a look at the post and let me know your thoughts.


  1. Oh my word, I'm literally crying after reading that post.Thankfully my husband is like hers, but it's so sad.It's so true.Everytime I find a mother who says she's battling depression I feel 'glad' because then I know I'm not alone.Thank you for this link.It's precious.It's wonderful-IT'S TRUE!!!!

  2. I really enjoyed the post. It was refreshing to see an analysis of why it's hard to be a modern mother that didn't place blame primarily on feminism. It's clear that our society has moved away from being family oriented, but with what feels like a gap in wisdom/practice/knowledge of what it takes for our generation, I wonder how we re-instill valuing the family, homemaking, and raising families in communities on a large scale if we who will one day (God-willing) be the elders ourselves don't know. I guess part two is about what can be done and I look forward to that.

  3. Thanks for sharing that post. She hit on a lot of points I have been dealing with/ praying about. I'm looking forward to reading Part 2 next week.
