Do you ever feel like other people family , friends, church members.. everyone has "a place" things they do, where they fit in the church and community but you are seen as just a MOM and that is ALL you are, that is your sole purpose in life? You have no other outside interests, nothing else to give or contribute.. you are there to take care of your kids, nothing else.
I love my children and I love my job as homemaker but I a more than just MOM. I have things to offer, hopes,dreams, talents and a purpose in life. and dare I say even a call from the Lord.I don't believe I was put on this earth to ONLY to bare children and care for them.. that is my job yes But there is more to me than just MOM. do you ever feel this way and wonder where you fit in the outside world/church? everyone has a purpose including your husband and you are looked at as just a homemaker.

You need to do whatever works best for you and your family and find peace and contentment in that. For some this means running large companies, having kids and being part of church and social groups. For other women it can mean being a SAHM and running the house and family business. Don't look to others for validation that your life has purpose because it will always feel empty that way.
We all get in ruts and its hard know what we want, sometimes we just have to feel unhappy or uneasy for awhile until we decide what it is we need.
