This post has been one of those God-inspired posts. In a moment of feeling weary, worn out, overall exhausted I felt God sort of tap me on the shoulder and nudge me to share this because the truth is we all get weary, so what do we do in that moment? Do we press through? Do we rely on others to help us through? Do we pray as if our lives and families lives depend on it? Because I know there have been times where I’ve bottled it up and tried to do it on my own, and that typically doesn’t work out for me.
So for this post, a few different moms will be sharing their stories about when they feel weary and what they find strength in. I pray that these stories encourage you, and let you know you are NOT alone when you go through these moments. By the way all of these ladies are amazing and have unique stories and unique situations, feel free to comment below or connect with them on instagram if you have any questions or want to connect more. Here we GO! Be encouraged! Wherever you are at right now, you got this mama!

“As a mom, I feel weary when I don’t know how to console my foster son. When he was dropped at our doorstep (literally), we didn’t receive any info about him. We weren’t told his schedule, temperament, needs ect. It was all trial and error. I feel like I was doing it all wrong. I’d end up in tears at the end of the night, so frustrated and defeated. But, I found strength in the truth that all this little boy really needed was my love. And THAT, I have plenty of. I constantly remind myself, “No Tayren, you don’t have what it takes, but Jesus does!!” He is the strength in my weakness.”

“I feel weary when I think my weaknesses are affecting my kids lives, but I find strength in knowing God’s strength is made perfect in my weakness.”
Jess Somera – @jessied_somera
“I feel weary when I don’t feel like I’m enough. When the world tells me I’m not smart enough, or pretty enough. Or I work too much or I’m not home enough. That I don’t DO enough. But I find strength knowing that I am wonderfully and fearfully made. That God is within me and I will not fail. Knowing that I am enough right now, today, just the way I am. I find my strength in my HOPE in God.”
Tina Klatt – @tinapasqualeklatt (my mom!)
“I would feel weary when my kids were younger, sometimes I wished I had more time in the day to do more things. I found strength in God’s word, and knowing that children are a gift from Him. It helped me to stop and cherish the time that I had with them. And to truly be thankful that I was able to be home with them and raise them.”
Hilary Ansell – @hilaryansell
“I feel weary when my son is sick and there’s nothing I can do to help him. My son Brink has ALCAPA which is a congenital heart disease and has spent a lot of his days in the hospital. I hate to see him sick and not be able to help him but I find strength in know who his healer is, His name is Jesus. I believe without a doubt God has him here for a plan and purpose. God loves and cares for brink more than I ever could. This brings me peace and gives me strength to get through each hospital visit!”
