My call to work with women as they "Pursue Motherhood" dates back to before I was even a positive pregnancy test for my then teenage mother. God had appointed me to be a beacon of hope, light, strength and revelation for the women and families I would be assigned before I was even born according to His Word. I say all this to say, Mamas, not to sound "preachy" or "super religious" but to let you know that even if you don't believe in the same God as me, I am disclosing that I am accountable to someone Higher than me for your care. I realize that taking care of myself is critical to this appointment. I have to be physically, emotionally, and spiritual sound. I personally must model what I hope to see in you and see you demonstrate. Your babies lives depend on it. It's that serious to me. With that said, I promise to be my best self to help you do the same for your children and their children... Wow, right? Their children.
"Wait, ain't no body thinking about 'grandmother-hood'. I'm just trying to get through motherhood, (expletive)!"
I am sure you are saying to yourself. BUT in actuality Mamas, it's the truth. What we enstill in our own babies, they are more likely to duplicate in their own children. You've heard of generational curses, right?... well, God has given us access to Generational Blessings too. God has your children's children in mind when he thinks of you. And so do I.
I vow to keep not just you, but your grandbabies in mind when I care for you to help you perpetuate the generational blessings in your lives. When I help YOU process your hurt, pain, trauma, fear, joy, guilt, shame, peace, happiness... I realize the task at hand. I am helping your children's children process theirs too. Let's get to work, Mamas.
We've Got this!
