Need prayers -- back to work after maternity leave


#1

Hello all!
I haven’t been to these boards since May 4th!!! I was off on maternity leave and busy with all the things a new baby brings. We had our second beautiful daughter, Emily Jean, on May 13th. I took a wonderful 6 weeks off and am now back to work today.

And I really need your prayers today. I am so sad to be back at work, so please ask God to give me strength to get through each day and to help me understand and listen to what His will is for me as a wife and mother.

Thanks and God Bless!

Congratulations! :clapping: What a blessing God has given you with Emily Jean. (I love that name.)

Your sorrow is breaking my heart. Be sure to unite your suffering with Christ on the cross. You will be in our prayers.

You will be in my prayers

It is hard. I know the first time I left ds at daycare, I went to the car and cried.

Congratulations on your sweet little blessing!!

What your feeling is normal because it is natural for us to be with our children. Have you thought about adjusting your life so that you can stay at home?? Or are you in a special situation and you are the only breadwinner? May God Bless you and your new little baby girl!!!

peace

P.S. If you can, you should check out the book…7 Myths of Working Mothers by Suzanne Venker…it is very eye opening and it would be worth your time
