As a stay at home mom, I usually watch the world around me in their flurry of ‘busyness’. Accomplishing goals, reaching for things beyond their grasp.
Sometimes watching others accomplish their personal goals, gives me, as a stay at home mom, a small dose of envy. It sometimes makes me feel like I have less worth. As though, I’m not involved in the crazy with the world, accomplishing my tasks, so therefore, I’m not useful or worth as much.

My worth as a child of God coupled with my fear of the Lord and my dedication to Christ gives me worth far above all the money the world could offer.
There are so many women who cannot see their own worth and I pray they will one day see themselves as God would see them. With value and Love far above what the world could offer them.
And as I sit here, I wonder if God has allowed the creeping feeling that left me questioning my own self-worth so that I can be more mindful and grieved for those who think of themselves even less on a daily basis. These are the very people Christ came to restore, please don’t ever overlook them.
