Let’s get real. Most of you reading this are women. Among that set, most of you are moms (and if you’re not, you can still read on). What’s life really like?
Real women face messes. Real women love the ones who make the messes. Real women
yell raise their voices. Real women try to instill good character in their children. Real women have many roles. Real women often have too much to do. Real women face exhaustion.
This month’s Gabby Mom review for Eternal Encouragement magazine is Lorrie’s latest video product From Exhausted, Irritable, and Overwhelmed to An Energized and Fulfilled Woman of God.
Gee, this woman doesn’t look real to me. But you know what, I bet she is! After listening to Lorrie, you will remember that you, too, already have the tools you need to feel just like the woman in the picture!
Lorrie Flem, mom of many, takes time to sit down and share with us an acronym to help us go from feeling buried under burdens to on top and ready to continue on. She uses the words REAL REST to walk through tips and reminders that encourage her viewers.
Here are a few of my favorites:
1. “He [God] is a real being.” Duh. I know that. But how often do I treat Him like a real being? I can’t see Him, so I often act like He’s something in my head. Oh, I take God seriously, but I often forget to relate to Him like a person. Something that requires pause, reflection, and effort, too.
2. Take time to enjoy the process, not just the results. Look around for blessings. Remind yourself that each little step accomplished is a good thing, too!
3. Ah, priorities! God has really been working on me in this area this year! Lorrie reminds us that when we forget our priorities we often end up overwhelmed.
Now, that’s all I have time to share with you because the video is over an hour long, and I need to go get dinner ready for my family. But let me say that real women will love the encouragement they get in this really profitable video.
