Grit and Grace for the New or First Time Mom

So you recently did—or are anxiously awaiting—to welcome a sweet (and stinky) little babe into the world! First of all, congratulations! There’s not much that’s more beautiful in this world than that. But, we all know babies are equally as mysterious and exhausting as they are beautiful. At Grit and Grace Life, one of our goals is to be a place where women who have walked a difficult road can look back and encourage those currently going through something similar. Today, that’s you: the new mother.

As a new mom or mom-to-be, you’ve got lots of questions. What new responsibilities will I have? What if my child [fill in the blank]? How do I keep my own identity as a mother?

Well, it turns out that all it truly takes to be a wonderful mother is a little grit, and a little (okay, a lot!) of grace. Check out these articles for encouragement, laughs, and some “me too!” moments to reassure yourself that you are in fact cut out for this:
