Allison Collins // Motherhood

Meet Allison. She is a special education teacher and the mother of sweet Lydia who is 6 months old.

What does the role of "mother" mean to you?
To provide a loving, nurturing, safe place for Lydia to grow and become a woman who knows (and I pray-loves) the Lord. 

What is the best advice you have ever received when it comes to motherhood?

Long days, short years. ( this advice was give to me after going to work EXHAUSTED from sleepless nights)

How do you like to spend days with your little one?

I love going on walks. Enjoying the sunshine and showing Lydia nature :)

What do you find most important in your role as a mother?

I want to be an example to Lydia of what a wife and mother who serves the Lord first looks like through my actions, words, and life. I absolutely will fail daily, but I want Lydia to watch me fight the good fight and love her well through it.
