When I was in college I was going to be a world changer. I could feel it deep in my bones, I was called to do something great. I had some ideas of what this accomplishment would be, but no clear direction. My guy and I married and started our careers, both of us very busy and fulfilled with the work we were doing.
Then life changed and I got pregnant. Three times in three and a half years.
I went home full-time and filled my days with silly songs and incredible chaos. I loved being a mom and everything that went along with it. But the feeling remained; I wasn’t a world changer, I was a diaper changer, how was I going to fulfill my calling?
Years later, I can see that I was right about that feeling I had long ago, but today it looks so different than anything I would have ever imagined. I have invested my adult life into my husband and my three children, giving them my very best. I think my efforts will make the world-changing exponential through my children or their future generations. Maybe they won’t cure cancer, maybe they will. But the world will be a better place because they were in it, and I had a little something to do with that.
For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
Love it. You are a wonderful writer and inspiration.
You are way too kind!
You are and always have been a world changer! I Love You.

Amazing words of strength – change is so much more about what happens within us!
Your presence in this world alone, is already changing it.
By Being Yourself, You put something wonderful in the world that was not there before – Edwin Elliot
I bet that Your husband and 3 children can not imagine thier lives in this world without You.
We each have a contribution to make, a purpose, and whether we see it or not, we are changing our world, and people’s lives every day. With a smile, a piece of advice, the gift of our time, whatever it may be, we are world changers, we are having an impact.
Beautifully said, Simply Me! Thanks for your contribution!
Amen… my oldest daughter is a stay-at-home mom investing her life in my grandsons. I admire her beyond words in a world that is constantly focusing on having it all. I was not afford that often (except for 5 1/2 years when the 3rd was born) and understand it is clearly not for everyone. But kudos to every mom who choose to be a “world changer” by investing in the lives God has set in her hands. Blessings!
It’s wonderful that your daughter has your support, I have found that family often rejects any idea that is different from the way they did it, making everything more difficult. Thanks for reading!
