Once upon a time, two young moms met in a women’s Bible study at their church. A lifelong friendship of ministry, motherhood and much laughing ensued. Mom friends are a beautiful gift but aren’t always easy. Kate and Rebecca discuss the intentional effort needed to nurture the mom friendships in your life. It is worth every second and comes from an overflow of God’s love in your heart. Give it freely because it was freely given to you. Go ahead, link arms, and sing a little Michael W. Smith “And friends are friends forever if the Lord’s the Lord of them…”
