Quoting Quiverfull: Laboring Not in Vain?

Quoting Quiverfull: Laboring Not in Vain? May 16, 2013

by Michelle Kauenhofen of Above Rubies Womens Daily Devotionals

DEAR FELLOW MOTHER,

When you feel worn out, exhausted, taken advantage of, under appreciated and not acknowledged, remember this.

The greatest gift of all time came at a very high cost on a wooden cross. We mothers labour not in vain, we are in the trenches together, waging war against all that seeks to defeat us, and trudging forward to great victory.

Of course there will be some hardships but we are not failing. We offer the greatest gift that we can. It is our labour of love to raise godly seed, and set an example in our marriages of Christ and His bride. We are daughters of the King in every circumstance, being polished by His hand and together, arm in arm, looking up, we win.
