Welcome to Mama's Maze!

Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by to check out my new blog—Mama's Maze. I am truly excited about starting this blog. God placed this on my heart a while ago so it is awesome to see it come to fruition.  I have never done anything like this before, so I am thrilled about venturing into uncharted territory. Writing is a passion of mine, and I love talking about the goodness of God.  So what better way to put the two together than in a blog.

How did I come up with the name Mama's Maze?  Well, one day as I was pondering on what the name of this blog would be, I thought about my experiences as a mother.  I mean, after being in the game for five years now, what could I compare motherhood to?  After much thought, the word "maze" came to mind. If you have ever been in a maze or played some type of game that had one, you know it can be challenging, frustrating, and rewarding if you ever make it through.  There are so many twists and turns that it can be quite overwhelming and even tempting to just wave a white flag and surrender.

Now, I want you to imagine going through a maze in which you have a guide--someone who will help you and give you direction.  All you have to do is listen to that person, and follow their instructions.  Well, guess what?  As a Christian, you have that guide readily available to you in the person of Jesus Christ.  He is ready to show you the direction you need to go. One of my favorite scriptures is Proverbs 3:5,6. It says :

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not rely on your own understanding;
 think about Him in all your ways,
and He will guide you on the right paths. (HCSB)

So why is it so hard for us to hear him or follow his commands?  Why is it that as Christians our lives seem tougher? Shouldn't it be easier?  We will explore those questions and many others throughout this blog. 

It is my hope that I can encourage you in your walk with Christ. We will talk about many things as it relates to motherhood, "wifey"hood, and womanhood. I will share some of my experiences (past and present), some lessons learned, and those that I haven't quite got yet. This is not meant to be a blog about being the "perfect mom" or "super mom" because those people don't exist. It's about us finding our identity in Christ and seeing our role as mother through the eyes of our creator. Mama's Maze is here to remind you that you can depend on Jesus through all of the craziness.

Each of us will have different paths in our maze. I have a son who has mild autism. Someone else may have a child who suffers from an incurable disease. Another may be a single mom struggling to do it all by herself.  Whatever our stories are, and no matter how different, our God is faithful to help us through all of our situations.  I expect that both you and I will be challenged, blessed, and encouraged along the way.

The Three Little Pigs

On a recent visit to our local library, I checked out a few DVDs for the boys to watch while I completed a few tasks around the house.  They fell in love with a certain DVD that contained a few popular children's stories. One story they were particularly fond of was The Three Little Pigs. After playing the DVD numerous times, the boys began to memorize the story and from then on all they could talk about (and sing about) were the three pigs and the big bad wolf.    As they attempted to tell me about this classic fable, I began to think of the story from a spiritual aspect and how it can be applied in our daily battle with Satan, who is "the Big Bad Wolf" in our lives. Much like the wolf in this story, Satan goes out "seeking whom he may devour" (1 Peter 5:8). And you know what; sometimes we can exhibit some of the same the qualities as those pigs. Maybe we are like the first pig who built his house with straw- a very weak material and foundatio

The "A" Word (Part 1)

With April being Autism Awareness Month, I thought it would be the appropriate time to share our story thus far as it relates to having a child on the autism spectrum. I had planned to tell this story earlier, but it just never seemed like the right time. I wanted to be as transparent as possible in sharing our story, so this may take more than one blog post. Also, in a later post, my husband will be sharing his personal reflections on how this journey with autism has affected him as a father and husband. Please know that our story will not be the same as other families because all children with autism are not the same. It is my hope that we can encourage others who may be on this same journey, as well as enlighten others about autism spectrum disorder. So here's our story: To look at our firstborn, Jason, Jr., you would think he is an exact replica of his father, Big Jason. When he was born, there was no doubt of which parent he looked like. Jason, Jr., was our answered
