Introduction

You are a good mother. Even though you may not always feel like a good mother or act like a good mother -- especially at the end of a long day -- God has chosen to give you a child. God sees that "good mother" in you even when you can't. But He didn't just drop that baby on your doorstep promising to check back when he or she is all grown up. No, God is always right beside you -- whether you're rocking your child during a sleepless night, standing over his bed when he's sick, or watching her score the winning goal on the soccer field.

As you read through this book of daily devotions, affirm the good mother you are by putting a star on the chapters in which you already excel. Then build on your successes by setting goals for the Today activities. (Right now your biggest goal may be fitting a shower into your day.) One day at a time, incorporate activities like dreaming with your child, reading with your child, or singing with your child. Little changes make big differences.

Remember how blessed you are. God chose you to raise your beautiful child. He has placed within you what you need to be a capable mother. He knows you'll make some mistakes, but He also knows you can be a good mother.

As a mother comforts her child, So will I comfort you.

ISAIAH 66:13
