Saturday Links- Mother’s Day Edition

There are so many great Mother’s Day articles. I’m having a hard time narrowing down which ones I should share. These are my favorites:

“The truth is, my default way of thinking and behaving has been to write myself out of my story because I’m first and foremost a mom. I haven’t wanted to acknowledge that I need prayer as a woman, NOT just prayer as a mom.
