Go beyond what you think you’re capable of and aim for that. One of the biggest challenges people face, especially mothers who are in the throws of motherhood, is allowing themselves to pursue their passions.
I’m not saying to try to find more time to do more when that time honestly doesn’t exist. What I’m challenging you with is to do something you don’t think you can do. Something you may even think yourself unqualified to do. Brush up your knowledge and do it anyways! You might surprise yourself.

Lead a small group.
Write an eBook
Start a blog!

I would love to consistently put challenges out for us mom writers throughout the year. Nothing completely out there, but far reaching enough to stretch us to become better than what we believe of ourselves–because God is capable.
Next week I’ll post the first challenge. Before then, I want you to give yourself permission to pursue your passion. Give yourself permission to create.
