Finding Balance: Navigating Motherhood, Faith, and Mental Wellness

By Mayra Richards, Founder of Remain Connected Counseling

Welcome to Remain Connected Counseling, a sanctuary of healing and hope. As a Christian mother, you juggle countless responsibilities, from nurturing your family to nourishing your faith. Amidst the beautiful chaos of motherhood, it’s crucial to prioritize your mental wellness.

I want to acknowledge that prioritizing your mental health can often feel discouraging because it is one more thing to do. Let’s be honest, it is one more thing to add to your plate. But I want to tell you how faith-based therapy can empower you to find balance, strength, and peace in every season of life.

The Journey of Motherhood

Watching my girls dance in the middle of the day to Run Baby Run, watching them play well together, giggling with each other, and have fun together brings so much joy to my heart. Those moments are Holy and permanently in my heart forever. However, ten minutes later the youngest is hitting the oldest, so I put little one in “time in” so she starts crying while her sister is wailing in the background because she was the one who got hit. My mind is also thinking about dinner on the stove that is surely to be burnt within the next minute, but I can’t yell for my husband because I know he is in a really important work meeting. Phew, even typing this makes me feel exhausted. Motherhood brings its joys, triumphs, and challenges. From sleepless nights to heartwarming moments, being a mother is a sacred calling, one that I would not change for anything, AND…... And it's essential to acknowledge that this journey can also bring its share of stress, anxiety, and self-doubt.

Mama, you're not alone in this journey! Those negatives thoughts that come about wanting to leave your children for a day to go to the hotel, or wanting to go hide in your closet and wait until they notice so you can have five minutes of quiet time... I used to have those thoughts as well, and slowly with time the level of intensity has decreased day by day. But that happened with the help of my therapist. I want you to know that our group of Christian therapists at Remain Connected Counseling are here to walk alongside you in your journey.
