One Confident Momma

www.oneconfidentmomma.org
My daughter-in-love, Rhiannon has joined the writing world. I say that with all pride and awe because our newest grandson is now five months old and Rhiannon not only takes excellent care of him, but she also takes care of our son Logan and their home, and she's a fourth grade teacher. Blogging is just another notch in her lip gloss case (yes, I said lip gloss; my daughter-in-love is sparkly) but I'm also humbly proud because I got to help introduce her into the writing world.

One Confident Momma is the name of her website. She talks about becoming a new momma, how she felt, how she acted, and even the difficulties and fears she faced after having Handsome, as she calls him in her posts. He may be her Handsome, but he's Nonney's "Little Sweetness."

In One Confident Momma, new mommy's, seasoned mommy's, and even we grandma's (Nonney in my case) can get uplifting, inspirational messages, laugh at the antics of the baby (and the daddy), and if you're seasoned as I am, you can remember going through these things as well. You can even leave comments to encourage and support the confident mommas who follow the website!

Using personal stories, biblical truths, and a little bit of humor Rhiannon's One Confident Momma all in herself. But trust me when I say this, and she will tell you as well, she received her confidence from her heavenly Father, Who gives her the confidence she needs to be the momma that she is.

There are many MIL's and DIL's* who don't have good relationships. I find that so sad because this relationship shouldn't be one of competition. It should be one of love, nurturing, and a friendship that is strong enough to last a lifetime. If you don't believe me read the story of Ruth and Naomi in the Book of Ruth in the Bible. Take notes. Learn from it. Trust me on this; if you want a relationship like that with your daughter-in-love, learn from the best mother-in-law, Naomi. Pray for your own daughter-in-love. Talk to her. "Older women teach the younger women!" 

These older women must train the younger women to love their husbands and their children, to live wisely and be pure, to work in their homes, to do good, and to be submissive to their husbands. Then they will not bring shame on the word of God. ~Titus 2:4-5, NLT

Yes, Rhiannon married my baby boy. What mom doesn't want her son to have the best? What mom doesn't want to let go of her son, especially the baby? But I let go of him, knowing that I was gaining a daughter. Rhiannon and I talk about everything, we laugh, we cry, and I know I probably say and do things that make her mad. But I also know that she knows I only say things to her because I've been there, not because I'm trying to tell her what to do. And because she's One Confident Momma, she lets me talk. Then she makes her own decisions. And that's okay!

I hope you'll check out and support One Confident Momma. You can find her at the following link: www.oneconfidentmomma.org.




*MIL = Mother-in-law, DIL = Daughter-in-law, or daughter-in-love
