With the ringing in this new year, why don’t we commit to taking some time for ourselves? Yes, that is right mamas—carve out some “me time”. Moms always put all other things in front of their own needs and desires. God designed us to be giving, loving, and nurturing. It’s just what we do. With all of the giving and loving and nurturing, it is very important that moms take the time to recharge and refuel their tank. Mothers cannot continue to be all that they have to be without practicing self care. To be your best self you have to give back to yourself. Below are some ways to care for yourself in 2018.
