Time has gone by quickly, but it has been eight years since I started The Spiritual Woman website. While my blog has largely supplanted the website, my mission has remained the same – I have always wanted to help women find God in the everyday busyness of their lives.
I walk in those shoes. I know how crazy life can be – how hard it is to pray and focus on God when children (especially young children) need your attention, and your to-do list is overflowing with tasks. I know how easy it is to serve everyone else and forget to nurture yourself.
But, we women need to feed the well first. If we aren’t rooted in God, then we can’t go out and serve our families to the best of our abilities. God matters. Prayer matters (even if it happens while showering, or pushing a stroller, or making supper). God is there with us in the housework and the childcare and the hundreds of tasks that fill our days. We just need to pay attention.
