You Don’t Have to Do It All!

122399669I used to feel guilty about not contributing more to my church when I was a new mother.

It seemed the only thing I had time to do is take care of my little one–no time for anything else.

Whether you stay at home or work outside the home, time is at a premium when you have children. But there are some creative ways to do little things.

–You can fellowship over coffee at home instead of joining the Wednesday night women’s group meeting.

–If your church allows, you can volunteer periodically in the nursery and take your child with you.

Children necessarily limit our time for other activities. But with a little creativity, we can do small things.

Sherry Surratt, CEO of MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), wrote an interesting article on this topic titled “Mommy Versus Ministry”. You can check it out here: http://www.todayschristianwoman.com/articles/2014/february/mommy-versus-ministry.html She gives more ideas that may be helpful with juggling children and ministry.
