People don’t often think of moms as bold and brave, but it takes incredible courage to step up and take responsibility, not only for your own journey, but also to teach and train and guide your children to find their own paths.
Vulnerability also requires its own sort of fearlessness. The kind it takes to share your life, your hopes, your dreams- and yes, your failures, doubts, and insecurities – with the person you’ve chosen to walk beside and do life with.
And it takes grit to choose a life that is full and joyful, and stop merely making it through your mom life.
So when I first heard the quote:
“I don’t know exactly what the future holds, but I’m stepping forward with grit, anchored in grace.”Julie Graham
I was moved by how much it described motherhood. But more than that, I was drawn in by the idea of being anchored.
We have our everyday anchors that allow us to have a rhythmic flow to our lives. Things like meals that bring us together at set times, and routines for laundry, dishes, and other chores.
We also have our seasonal anchors to help us check in and take the pulse of our lives so we don’t wander too far off the path we’ve chosen. Things like goal planning, spring cleaning to purge the clutter from another year, and even holidays.
But I’d never considered that we could be anchored in grace.
I knew about grace. It was something I’d searched long and hard for, yet it still sometimes felt elusive. Too good to be true.
But the idea that I could be anchored in it, standing steady ALWAYS on the promise that I was made new and set on the path to a life that was not only purposeful but abundant, appealed to me in a way that wouldn’t let go.
For so many years I felt like I was drowning in my life. Being knocked down again and again by every relentless wave. It was both wearying and hopeless. But still, I fought against the current. Trying and failing to figure out all.the.things. Sure that there was supposed to be more to motherhood than just surviving it.
It wasn’t until I heard that beautiful quote that I realized that’s what grace is: the anchor. The thing that keeps us from aimlessly drifting. Always seeking and never finding a place to rest.
It’s how we find the grit to step forward boldly even in the face of the unknown.
And that’s what The Anchored Motherhood Podcast is all about.
Being An Action-Taking Mama
It’s so easy to become a victim of our circumstances. Tapping out before the round even comes to an end, because we’re worn down and weary.
But the difference between a victim and a victor often simply comes down to who had the courage to get back up one more time and try again.
The Anchored Motherhood Podcast gives you practical steps to own your life, so you aren’t waiting around for life to happen to you.
Living Simply So You Can Simply Live
Simple living is a phrase that is often tied up in the ideas of minimalism or country life, but I believe living simply can be summed up in this quote:
“Minimalism is the intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of anything that distracts us from it.”Joshua Becker
Simple living isn’t about a specific number of things, or a decorating motif, or even a certain type of lifestyle. It’s about letting go of anything and everything that distracts you from living on purpose and creating a life you love.
Living With The End In Mind
Since the beginning of time, people have been searching for the meaning of life. That one secret to making your time on earth both meaningful and abundant.
But we don’t have to look very far to find the answer.
“Teach us to number our days carefully so that we may develop wisdom in our hearts.”Psalm 90:12
You have to number your days. Living with the end in mind helps you make a plan to spend your days doing the things that add up to a legacy worth leaving.
Thats the secret sauce, my friend.
Being Anchored In Truth And Grace
The Anchored Motherhood Podcast was created to help moms stand steady through the storms of mom life. And the only way to do that is to know the truth of who you are and whose you are.
When we have Truth planted firmly in our hearts, we can face most anything that comes our way.
And with that Truth comes the life-giving freedom of knowing that grace is there to cover us when we fall.
The Short and Sweet
Motherhood is a time when we’re often so caught up in everyone else’s needs. We serve and serve and serve. And we forget that there’s a quiet fierceness that drives moms to great courage.
These aren’t women who sit quietly on the side lines, letting life happen to them. Moms are the ones who are shaping the next generation, raising up world changers.
But at the same time, mom life is HARD, and it’s easy to fall prey to the lie that you’re stuck in your life.
The Anchored Motherhood Podcast was created to inspire and encourage you to take action on the things that matter, and to create a life built on the firm foundations of Truth and grace that allow you to step forward with grit even though you don’t know what the future might hold.
