Part Two: Be Who You Are
As the title of this series suggests, super moms are just ordinary people doing very ordinary things day in, day out. Because it feels so “daily,” it is easy to imagine that we are the only ones feeling this way—that surely everyone else’s experience in their homes is whimsical, while only ours feels dull. It is easy to lose sight of the magic that happens right under our own roof every single day. It is happening. We just have to shift our perspectives to observe it.
Strive to simply be who you are. God created each of us with unique talents. Faithfully using these strengths will make a super impact on your children, as well as anyone else around you. Plus, God gave your children to you for a purpose. He knew you had what it’d take to shape them into the people He plans them to be.
So ask yourself what it is that you do well. Be intentional about doing your “one thing,” as Dr. Randy Carlson says. For example, I’m not crafty, but I love to bake. Our memories involve the kitchen, not the craft room. I could feel badly about what I don’t do, or I could celebrate what I do well. We also love to read books together and spend time outdoors--taking walks, riding bikes, gardening and camping in the summer. These are the ingredients in the tapestry of our family legacy.
Be who you are. Be confident about who you are. Be faithful to do the unique things for which God has equipped you. They feel very ordinary, but they make a super impact.
