God Made Me A Mother

The Search for Contentment…
Over the past month, I've been reflecting on how God has molded me to find contentment. I was asked to speak at our church's women's luncheon about how I've found contentment when I was single/unmarried, newly married, and the current season of life I'm entering in, motherhood.
