The Desperate Mom

I heard Wendy Hagen speak at MOPS today.. and really loved her talk! It was inspirational, uplifting...but most importantly REAL!

She spoke on "Taking Care of Mom" which is always a great topic! ;) Wendy is a mother of four (one in heaven) so she really gets the craziness and business of it all...and knows the importance of taking care of US.

What I got out of her talk mainly... is that us mommies, we are "life surgeons"... because God has placed these little lives in our hands. And that a life surgeon:

1) Needs to take care of her body (sleep, exercise)
*Scheduling "sleep-in days"- at least once a month. One day for mommy, one day for daddy!

2) Needs to take care of her mind (take breaks, serve outside of our home)
*Get nights off- going out with friends, going out and doing something fun!
*Get outside of yourself and serve others- and serving with your children too!

3) Needs to take care of her man (communicate in the bedroom, guard your heart)
*Ask your husband how often, and try for 30 days!
*Guard your heart, because women are capable of affairs too!

4) Needs guidance from the Master surgeon (get in the Word, talk to Him, and listen to Him)
"Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge."
Psalm 62:8

Her talk was fun, hilarious and filled with great tips! I bet her book is a winner too!
