Mothering Sunday provokes varied emotions. Of all things I have experienced, becoming a mother has had the most profound impact on my relationship with God. It has changed how I understand his overwhelming, sacrificial love. It has challenged the way I engage with him (toddlers and 'quiet God time' do not easily mix!)
I am the mother of 3 children and it is a joy and privilege to have that role. My first child, Levi, is almost 4. He has taught me about the depths of God's love for me, how God would do anything to reach me and how that will never change. My second child, Imogen, was born when Levi was 2. She has taught me about worship, how to lay everything down before God and ask him to come. She has taught me that knowing Jesus and telling others about him is more important than anything. She has taught me that when all is stripped away, Jesus remains and he is enough.
