Did God give us a formula for motherhood?
Constant pressure to live up to unrealistic ideals can lead women to serious problems like depression, says Carla Barnhill in her interview with Jane Johnson Struck for CHRISTIAN PARENTING TODAY. Barnhill believes the role of motherhood has been undervalued and over romanticized by our culture and our church, leading mothers to feel overwhelmed by expectations, unsure of their parenting skills, and burdened by a sense of failure.
Why is it essential to differentiate between God s leading in parenting and our desire to please others by fulfilling idealistic expectations? How can we gain contentment in our role as mothers? Why should recognizing the truth that God has created us all uniquely and has a different function for every individual and family free us from social norms?
