Quoting Quiverfull: Weariness is a Natural Part of Motherhood?

Quoting Quiverfull: Weariness is a Natural Part of Motherhood? August 11, 2014

wearyby Jennifer McBride cross posted from Ladies Against Feminism advertising a new site for tired Christian moms Be Not Weary Be Not Weary: Hope for Tired Moms

Are you a mother who struggles with chronic illness or even just plain old exhaustion? Be Not Weary is a brand new website just for you!

Having struggled with severe adrenal fatigue myself for the past eight years my heart so goes out to other mothers who have health issues, who have grown weary or are going through a difficult season. Motherhood is a calling and a work like no other; and mothering through sickness and fatigue presents a special challenge. I have been there. I still am there. And it is such a comfort to know that our faithful God is there with us.

My hope is to share with you the beautiful Truths He has reminded me of on hard days, to point you to Him, to encourage you when the way seems dark, weary and lonely – and to remind myself of these things as well. I also hope to offer some simple ideas for homeschooling and running a full household on limited (or no) energy, as well as information on nutritional products that are helping me regain my health. I hope to learn from you as well.

Interesting. Question of the day. If you’re weary, even in motherhood, should you not rest and regain your strength instead of muddling on through and possibly making yourself sick?
