Motherhood: Taking Time to Recharge
MARIA (mom of 6): I love being a mom. For me it is enjoyable and rewarding, but at times, it can be physically exhausting and emotionally draining.

For many years, I so desired to know the Lord better and learn more of His Word that I could hardly contain myself. I wanted so badly to study His Word, spend more time in His Word, and be with Him that I couldn’t stand it!
