If we’re honest, most days it’s hard for moms to take every thought captive to obey Christ. Between taking care of the kids and the home, things stay busy.

Ann Voskamp has a great post that I think will be a help to moms fighting to take every thought captive to obey Christ.

She writes:

How long do I really have to figure it out?

How long do I have to figure out how to live full of joy?

So my husband might find himself married to a woman he loves being with.

A woman who knows how to laugh at the days to come?

So our children have these memories of a mama who smiles easy, listens long, makes jokes and praise and all these good days out of crazy messes.

So the Christ in me, Joy Himself, “the gigantic secret of the Christians,” is apparent to the world around me, Joy to the world, rescuing the world.

How long do I really have? 

She spends a lot of time on gratitude and how to help your kids be grateful. It’s a post well worth your time with some great ideas for helping your kids grow in gratitude.
