A quick shout out to all the mothers out there. Becoming a parent has been one if the hardest, yet fulfilling thing I’ve done with my life. I have associated closest to God as Creator for a while now, but becoming a dad has really made the Fatherhood of God a much bigger theme in my life.

However, my parental duties are nothing compared to those of my wife. Motherhood, especially stay-at-home motherhood, is such a blessing in our home.

I think many people take their moms for granted. I know I did for a long time. But seeing the work and sacrifice that goes into being a mother makes it obvious why God chose to be compared to a mother hen protecting her chicks. Nothing I’ve ever done has demanded more than motherhood, and I sometimes forget that.

So, to my wife and my mother, Happy Mother’s Day. To all our readers who are moms, remember that your calling is so important. You are true artists, creating life and sculpting it over decades into a masterpiece. The masters would be proud.

I love you, Mum. I love you, Bri.
