Welcome to SeanaScott.org, where you will meet Real Moms living out Real faith—with all the messes and joys. Take a moment for yourself, mama. Drink up. Be encouraged. I look forward to getting to know you.
Motherhood has been a struggle for me. As a new mom I stressed over homemade organic baby food and trying to have my son read before kindergarten. Ok. Maybe I am a closet perfectionist. I just want to be faithful in this awesome gift called motherhood, don’t you?
But for the first years of my motherhood adventure, I planned and chore charted my way through trying to overcome my fears. Fears of ruining my kids. Fears of wasting my life in a pile of dishes when millions of people in the world need Jesus. I continually covered up the symptoms of a sour heart with pithy Christian sayings and pep-talk. And I was a dedicated Jesus follower.
Then Jesus got a hold of me.
In a deep tunnel of depression after moving to a new city, pregnant, with no friends and an unknown future—and two boys constantly fighting in our tiny apartment—Jesus grabbed my attention.
Simple words flushed out the toxins in my soul as God whispered, “I love you. I love you. I love you.”
He didn’t lead me to articles to change me like 5 Steps To Never Ruining Your Kids or How to Be the Best Mom By Summer.
He gave me Himself—and reminded me of His unconditional love.
And I am still on the journey of learning how Jesus’ truth and love really are enough—enough to feed my mama soul and the souls at my kitchen table.
The world is messy, mamas. And so are our hands with milk spills, dirt-pasted faces, and toy explosions. So, lets walk the messy journey together and help carry the buckets of sorrows or splash in the moments of joy—together.
Real. Faith. Moms.
