Hello! Welcome to faithfulnurturing.com, a blog about applying faith to everyday motherhood. My name is Mary. My husband and I have 8 delightful boys, which also means we have a pile of muddy shoes in the entryway, wrestling in the living room, and bug jars on the kitchen table. We don’t have a picture-perfect home or picture-perfect interactions every minute, but there is love here. Through my experiences I have come to know that God is aware of us, that there are lessons in every day, and that being a mom is one of the most important and rewarding jobs in the world. I also have the amazing privilege to work part-time as a pediatrician with an emphasis on parenting and children’s behavioral issues.
About 8 years ago, after volunteering in my son’s 1st grade classroom, I was given a little bronze, flip-top notebook. I started jotting down observations about relationships, parenting, and personal growth. As the days, weeks, months, and years passed, the notes took shape into a manuscript. I worked on it in small pieces at the edges of the day and finally have prepared it for publication. My book, “Faithful Nurturing: Mothering from the Heart to the Heart,” is now available in paperback and online formats.
May God bless you as you navigate each precious day! ~Mary
