There is nothing more amazing than being a mom—and also, perhaps, nothing more difficult. From the chaos of toddlerhood to the drama of middle-schoolers to the keep-you-up-at-night terror of your teenager behind the wheel, raising kids brings a new set of challenges at every stage. The only way to navigate these various seasons of life—and find time to savor the incredible joys that accompany the difficulties—is to turn to the one Parent who truly can handle it all: our Heavenly Father. In this devotional, women from all stages of life offer words of wisdom, humorous anecdotes, and helpful advice—all grounded in Biblical truth—to encourage their fellow moms on the journey. Short devotionals for busy moms, these entries gently remind us that no matter what each day holds, we can rest in the truth that ultimately our children are in His hands, and that God delights in walking this journey with us.
No only truly understands the joys and struggles of a professional nanny like another professional nanny. From developing a working knowledge of best childcare practices to negotiating a work agreement for a challenging position, it can be tough to balance taking care of yourself while taking care of others.
As a career and award-winning nanny, I know first-hand how important it is to continue to improve your skills and develop your knowledge base over the course of your career. That is why I am so excited as I prepare to launch my new nanny training program.
