Before we get into this episode, I just want to remind you that this is a hard topic because it will look totally different depending on what your particular situation is – what your husbands role is, what your own role is, what life is like inside your particular church, what city you live in, how many kids you have… all play in a role in the answer to this question.

MomUP Ep. 5 | Encouragement for the Weary New Mom

I’m in that stage of life where I look around and it seems like a baby is born to someone I know every other day.
