Finding meaning in
Seek the Lord and his strength;
seek his presence continually!
1 Chronicles 16:11
My name is Allyson Reid, and I’m thrilled you found my writings. As a wife of over ten years and a homeschooling mom to two energetic boys, I understand the beautiful chaos that comes with motherhood and life in general. Like you, I often find myself caught up in the mundane, feeling overwhelmed and guilty for my lack of consistency in the spiritual disciplines.
Praise be to God for helping me realize that sanctification includes every aspect of my life. God wants to grow me and be glorified in everything I think, say, and do. This realization ignited a passion within me to seek His purpose and meaning in the seemingly ordinary moments we often overlook.

At The Mundane Moments, I strive to write practical and theologically sound blog posts that will equip you on your motherhood journey. Writing is also how I process what God is teaching me, so you’ll find the personal stories and Biblical truths for moms that I’m striving to weave into my own life.

I recently read The Journals of Jim Elliot, edited by Elisabeth Elliot, and was reminded again that one of our “heroes” of the faith struggled with sin, doubt, and the frailty of life. Born in 1927, Jim Elliot is most famous for his death at the hands of the very people he and several other […]
Consistent Bible reading is an important aspect of growing in your faith. Throughout Scripture, we see the importance of time in the Word, but as a busy mom with an ever-changing schedule and desire for spontaneity, I’ve struggled with consistent time in the Word. But, learning how to read the Bible daily, is an important […]
I love downloading daily routine lists because I’m prone to feeling like I will finally have my life organized if I follow someone else’s perfect morning schedule or daily rhythms. I follow them for a while, but they never end up being sustainable. The truth is, there is no perfect daily routine for every person. […]
“You’ve got this, mama!” “You’re a great mom!” These cheerleader phrases make me feel good about myself, until the days when nothing is under control and I treat my children unkindly. I don’t say this to gain sympathy. The fact is that some days that I act like a bad mom. And […]
I’m easily distracted. After cleaning the house for an hour, I look around and wonder what I’ve ever done. I start with the goal of cleaning the kitchen, then have to change a dirty diaper. I see the clothes on the bedroom floor, so I start a load of laundry. The boys are fighting […]
