As a new mom, relationships with more experienced moms is crucial. Whether they have 20 years of mothering or just one, they have experience that a new mama just doesn’t have.
Most new moms look to their mothers for guidance, advice and help with everyday things. When you live hours from your mom, mother-in-law or grandmothers, it is important to be connected to women in your church, neighborhood or at work who can serve as a mentor to you and be there for you.
My husband is in ministry and throughout our marriage, we’ve lived away from our families. Thankfully, we have been blessed with close friends who are like family in our churches.
