This is a long requested post that I finally feel qualified to write! It's true - I'm expecting my first child in September.
My husband and I feel incredibly blessed. For a long time, we didn't know if it would be possible for us. Now, though, I can see how perfect the timing is.
Confession time. For the first few years of my career, I worried a lot about how I could serve the women I felt called to serve without the experience of motherhood. I remember that being a heavy criticism about Marie Kondo when her book first came out.
I believe that it was easier for me to do this work on my own without young children to look after. I don't think the work I've done is going to make my life more difficult once I'm a mother if my pregnancy has been any indication of what's ahead.
I'm not used to my body not being my own, to needing naps, to needing to eat every couple hours. For better or for worse, I'm used to pushing through to get things done, and I'm realizing that's not a good option anymore.
