You’ve been given a lot of advice in your lifetime. I know it. I have given it and taken it.
But the most encouraging words you’ll ever hear likely won’t be some random words, they will be from God’s word. You know why? Because God knows all and He knows exactly what you need to hear (or read).
The next time you are feeling discouraged as a wife, mom, and homemaker turn to these scriptures. And the next time you know someone depressed, share these words with them!
Friend, I am sharing with you God’s promises that I have clung to through years of grief and sorrow. I hope & pray that they bring you the comfort that they have brought me!
