Mary or Martha?

We have a lot on our plates as SAHM's. And our faith, while at the very core of our desire to serve our families, also requires a delicate balance of the necessary personas of BOTH of those famous biblical sisters, Mary and Martha.

When God gave me my desire to soap, it was initially to calm my inner storm and find His still small voice. The peace I found allowed me to see that balance was not only ideal, but required.

Your personal balance may be tilted proportionately differently than mine. But taking time to be alone will make it easier to strike your own balance.
