Mommy Life, Mommy MakeOver Devotional

Day 3 “Permission to Dream” | Mommy MakeOver Devotional

Many of of us as moms are in constant go mode. We’re living out the narratives of others, going with the flow of what others have told us mom life should look like, without really taking the time to decided if that “flow” is what we really want for ourselves! 

That’s exactly what happened to me! Before I went through my own personal Mommy MakeOver, I didn’t even realize that I was following some pretty limiting narratives.  From “your sex life won’t be the same after kids”, to “you won’t have a life until your kids are grown…”, and even “You’re going to feel mom guilt for the rest of your life”. (Yes, sis… someone told me that)!

like why is that the norm??

Well I decided to let go of those limiting beliefs (read day two), and I gave myself permission to dream and decide for myself! Like, literally! I sat down and wrote out everything I wanted and desired for myself in every area of my life! From my mindset, to my marriage, in my home and business…I had to redefine mom life for myself! And can I tell you this, the intimacy in my marriage is popping (🗣 you hear me), I’ve implemented systems & strategies so that I no longer sit in overwhelm or mommy guilt, and I’m creating and living  my best life right now! YAAAASSS!!!

I had to redefine mom life on my terms! 


What about you momma? 

✨What kind of mom do you want to be?
✨What kind of marriage do you want to have?
✨What type of business do you want to build?
✨What about your children? How do you want to show up for them?
✨Ever think about your day? How do you want that to flow?
✨What about you, momma? What kind of woman do you want to be?
✨How do you want to show up for yourself?

I pose  a very similar line of questions to the moms I work with. We do an exercise where I present to them what I call “The Harmony Wheel”, and they use this as a visual guide to decide what they desire!  From their faith, to their fitness journey… all the way to their finances, my moms are required to dream! And I don’t mean wishy washy, shallow dreams. No momma,  we get really real, and super specific! The work is deep, revealing,  and I truly believe this activates Ephesians 3:20.  From my perspective, how can expect God to do “infinitely MORE than our greatest request”, if we haven’t even decided what we wanted for ourselves?

Like I know, God can do anything. But please don’t miss the point here! God honors and responds to specificity! 

So I encourage you…

Give yourself the grace, space and permission to dream and actually admit to yourself WHAT YOU desire! Matt 7:7-8 is your promise, as a whole mom…. so dream momma, don’t leave anything on the table! 

You deserve the life you desire!


I encourage you to spend some time with God, today! As you reflect on today’s verse and listen to today’s worship, what is God saying to you? What do you desire for your life?
