The journey of motherhood may be challenging, but who said you had to do it alone?
Where should we start?
Being a mother isn’t a chore, and it definitely shouldn’t be a burden. It’s one of the most important responsibilities you will have on this earth. You have the privilege to help shape the lives of the young men and young women that God gifted to you.
There are many components involved with motherhood, and at times it can be overwhelming. I have experienced that first hand! But with the creation and implementation of my Pursue HER method, I have been able to gracefully and effectively navigate the journey of motherhood.
To help others, I have broken down the components of motherhood into “The Five Pillars of Motherhood”. Each season of motherhood may require focus on one pillar over another. Not sure where to start? No worries! That's what I'm here for. But in the meantime let's take a look at the Pillars.

The Five Pillars of Motherhood
Pillar One - Love
Being effective as a mother is a selfless act that must be rooted in love. Loving your children means you will show them patience, kindness, acceptance, nurture, and forgiveness. You must also love yourself as you grow and go through your seasons of motherhood. This pillar will help you understand your role as a mother while also providing you with strategies and steps that help you create the best relationship with your child. This pillar will cover topics such as, how to instill values in your children? What does it mean to be a mother? What to support your child who is dealing with mental illness?
Pillar Three - Boundaries
Setting clearly defined expectations between yourself and your children is imperative when setting the tone in your relationship. This includes implementing discipline strategies, being consistent with your children, building a relationship with your children but not losing your authority as the parent. This pillar will help you to create healthy and clear boundaries with your children. This pillar will cover topics such as. How to discipline my children? When do I start setting boundaries? How to set healthy expectations for my child? How to minimize and avoid power struggles with my child?
Pillar Five - Raising Kingdom Children
As children of God, it is imperative that we raise our children to be kingdom-focused. Our children must know what it means to be in the world but not of the world. Each child was created for a purpose identified and predestined by God. It is our job as mothers to be able to help our children identify their purpose and raise them up according to God’s desire. This pillar will help you to confidently raise your children according to scripture while being able to maneuver through the cares of this world. This pillar will cover topics such as teaching children how to pray. Importance of spending time with God. How to teach my children to revere God? How to support my children that deal with spiritual warfare.
Pillar Two - Balance
Motherhood will bring overwhelming moments. You can’t get away from them! Children have a way of trying to take up all of your time. Believe it or not, your only role in life is not just to be a mother. Balancing all of your roles and taking care of yourself is imperative when striving to be the best mother you can be. This pillar will help you to be able to effectively prosper in all of your roles as a woman. This pillar will cover topics such as the importance of self-care. How to pursue your dreams and goals without neglecting your responsibilities as a mother? How to balance work responsibilities?
Pillar Four - Organization
Every season of motherhood calls for different levels of organization. Setting routine, pre-planning, and creating systems for yourself, children, and household benefits everyone. Having tailor-made systems for your household will help you with day-to-day tasks and reduce moments of feeling overwhelmed and/or frustrated. This pillar will help you to become confident and successful in creating systems that can adjust with each season of motherhood. This pillar will cover topics such as: How to create a morning routine? What chores are appropriate for my child? Using checklists for tracking progress.
