Motherhood is a beautiful, wonderful pursuit. But it sure involves a lot of mundane tasks that have to be done again and again and again! And it can sure be frustrating when our “doing” is always being “undone.”
In this week’s Radio Show, April and Saren discuss ways to find meaning and magic in the mundane.
They share tips for changing the way we view the less-than-glamorous parts of motherhood by recognizing that even the most exciting jobs involve some mundane aspects, learning to make typical household chores into relationship-building activities, and recognizing the powerful “big picture” of what we’re doing.
We’d love to hear your thoughts below, and if you like this radio show, please share it with your friends and take a moment to rate us with an honest review on iTunes. Thanks so much!
