One of my favorite parts of this 31 Days series is the ability to continue introducing you to some of my friends from around the internet. When we’re talking about encouraging conversations, these are the people I think about – the ones who have taught me something, encouraged me in some way, made me a better person, and who – on a daily basis – make the internet better because they’re part of it.
Brooke McGlothlin makes my world better because she’s in it. Co-founder of MOB Society, her bio on her blog is the best way for you to see what a kind hearted, Jesus loving mama this woman is:
I’m just a girl who loves Jesus, a boymom who needs Him more and more every day, a wife whose husband loves her way more than she deserves, and a sinner whose past no longer defines my present. If you don’t remember anything else about me, like where I went to college, or how many books I’ve written, just remember those things? Because they represent the real me…the one who’s probably a lot more like you than you might think. We’re in this together, friends, and I’m here to help you find hope in the messes of daily life.
I mean. Really. Don’t you want to just run to a coffee shop with her and chat all day? Because I do – and any time I’ve had the chance to spend time with this amazing woman in real life, she has been a huge blessing. She is gracious, humble, kind, hilarious, and has encouraged my heart as a mama before I even knew her in real life.
Because in addition to her amazing work with the MOB Society, she’s also the co-author of Hope for the Weary Mom…you might remember me mentioning my love for both of those things when I chatted about Erin and Stacey 🙂 Brooke is a prayer warrior like none I’ve ever met before and her love for her boys inspires me to go that extra mile for my kiddo when I just don’t feel like I have any more in me.
This sweet friend, who – again – I met first online – loves well. She is generous with her time and her knowledge and she is quick to help when asked. Brooke has poured prayer and courage and wisdom into her communities online, and because of it there will be thousands of lives changed as boy mamas and mamas like me are pointed closer to Jesus in those most difficult days of mothering.
Her work, her passions, her every day – it’s done with her whole heart. She has taught me to listen well, to cheer for others, to pray when I say I’m going to pray, and to do it all without reservation. Watching Brooke build community has taught me how to be a better community builder.
