Who has been impactful in your journey as a mother? What lessons do you carry with you and share often through motherhood?
I used to hear people say that nothing mattered if your kids were happy and healthy. Then one day I heard a sermon at church and our pastor said that what is truly important is raising kids to be holy. Having holy kids would create happiness and an internal peace that only God provides. That phrase has shaped what I feel is important in our teachings. If my kids know God, when bad things happen they are equipped to handle anything.
What continues to inspire you in your motherhood journey?
My mom. My mom is 80 years old and continues to be a servant to her family everyday. She shows her love to her five children and her seven grandchildren through her constant presence in our lives and willingness to do anything in her power to make our lives and situations better.
How has being a mom shaped your life?
Being a mom has made my life incredible. Having the blessing of children around our home has filled my heart with so much love. Every day, every thought is on them and what their needs are.
