Connections take effort. Friendships take work. Developing these relationships can be awkward. But, as with many things, the risk is worth it all. But HOW do we start? WHERE do we begin?…Friendships don’t happen overnight. And, unfortunately, sometimes it takes numerous attempts before you find a true friend among the fringe friends. BUT! Just because it may take a while, doesn’t mean the process or attempts are in vain. If nothing else, as we actively seek out friendships, we become bolder and more confident in who we are, and what we have to offer. We learn the things we value in a friendship and we learn how to be more of the type of friend we wish to have.

It’s easy to think in these less-than-glamorous moments of motherhood that we have little of value to share with others. That’s what the Enemy wants us to think. When we buy into the lie that our family is too chaotic, our schedule is too hectic, our house is too messy, and our kids are too crazy, we miss out on authentic relationships. However, Jesus designed us to live a life of authenticity!
