It all started when…
My first child was born....I struggled with the demanding needs of my infant baby, my husband, my career and life in general (yes! I was a mess! - thank God His Grace and Strength!) There were days and nights I was discouraged and quite overwhelmed with juggling the duties of being a wife, new mommy and executive. I did not “quite” have this miraculous “Super Mom” being that was suppose to overtake me the moment I laid eyes on my newly, born baby. As a matter of fact, it was the opposite. I remember looking at her and thinking, “Something’s wrong, I don’t feel the warm, gushy, you are the center of my world” feelings I had heard many mothers describe.” I remember being in awe about the miracle of life and how my OB-GYN has just taken a live human being from inside me AND how much she resembled my grandfather. yup….that was about it.. To make matters worse, she did not like breastfeeding! No ma’am! She was not having it! It was like I was torturing her. I would pump and pour the milk in a bottle. Again (in my brain I was thinking) …I could not even bond with her through breastfeeding. For a longggggg time, I thought something was wrong with me. I thought I was a failing at his motherhood thing. I simply was not feeling the overwhelming emotions I had heard many mothers describe about motherhood. I began to ask close friends about “the hype” of motherhood. Serious….what is this all about anyway? And I guess you can say, the rest is history….The M Life and later “ME” was born. ME simply stands for “managing everything.”
What is managing everything exactly? It is women, using their God-given power, strength and abilities to be the best woman, wife and mother we can be. ME is who we are in the home, church, work place and community. Whether we are happy, broken, discouraged, bitter, cheerful, optimistic, experience depression and anxiety or overwhelmed, God's Word reminds us that we can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens us. Through His Strength, we can MANAGE EVERYTHING effectively. ME Magazine is the magazine for mothers who are simply trying to do the best they can everyday. It is for mothers who have not quite mastered the role and responsibilities of mothers. ME is for mothers who could use inspiration, encouragement and how-to tips for a few basic necessities. ME is for mothers and women from all walks of life. We all share the forever, unfolding beauty and ugliness of motherhood.
