Why I Wrote These Encouraging Quotes for Moms
These encouraging quotes for moms will help remind you that struggle is normal in mom life. Every mom faces challenges, whether it be with parenting, work, friends, or one of the other thousand things moms have going on. I put these encouraging quotes for moms together to remind you (yes, you!) that you are so strong. A strong mom is not one that doesn’t struggle but one that continues to work hard to be the mom that her kids deserve through it all. A strong mom encourages her children and builds them up even when she feels torn down.
But perhaps even more importantly, a strong mom recognizes the need to take care of herself in order to take care of her children. Even the strongest moms need encouraged and reminded of the value they bring to their family and to this world. Life gets exhausting and we all need reminders once in a while. So, I hope these 100 encouraging quotes for moms will serve as a reminder for you that you are enough and you are stronger than you think!

My Top 10 Favorite Encouraging Quotes for Moms
In case you’re still trying to decide if this is the right choice for you, here are my top 10 favorite quotes from the list!
“While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.”
This is something motherhood taught me very quickly. Every day I am trying to teach my kids how to live but sometimes I just have to stop and let them teach me how to really start living.
“Bad moments don’t make bad moms.” -Lysa Terkeurst
This is an easy one to forget. But we all have bad moments and learning from them is part of the process. You won’t be a perfect mom, but mistakes give you an opportunity to show your children how to respond when they mess up.
“Behind every great child is a mom pretty sure she is screwing it all up.” -Unknown
You aren’t the only mom who feels like they are screwing things up. We all feel that way from time to time (and probably multiple times a day).The truth is, our kids don’t think that and the fact that you are worrying about it likely means you aren’t screwing it all up.
“A mother’s love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.”
– Marion Garretty
The things that mothers are able to accomplish on negative sleep, little food, and amongst pure chaos is nothing short of a miracle.
“By loving them for more than their abilities we show our children that they are much more than the sum of their accomplishments.” -Eileen Kennedy-Moore
It’s more than okay to be proud of your kids. Just be intentional to tell them that you are proud of who they are becoming, not just what they are doing.
“As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can’t tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself.” – Joyce Maynard
Sometimes we forget just how much our children watch our every move. They are learning a great deal by watching how we live our life. If we don’t take risks, don’t work hard, and don’t dream big, then they won’t either.
Always remember that behind every successful woman is a basket of dirty laundry. —Unknown
Every mom can relate to the constant power struggle with laundry. A mom wearing a dress isn’t a put together mom, they are just a mom with no more clean clothes. Don’t let the heaping hamper get you down.
“Motherhood: If you think my hands are full, you should see my heart.” -Unknown
If you’re like me, you are exhausted and annoyed by the, “you’ve got your hands full comment,” you constantly get while out in public. I saw another mom blogger who said this was her response to people and I absolutely loved it!
“Parenting is 50% feeling like your head might explode and 50% feeling like your heart might.”
I felt this quote on a deep level today! One moment they are doing something that makes you crazy and the next they are doing something that makes you laugh so hard you cry.
Finding balance as a mother means accepting your imperfections. –Mary Organizes
There is no way to balance motherhood until you realize that motherhood involves mistakes and redos. It is a learning process.
