Many women would probably agree with me when I say that being a wife and mother is a noble, often "thankless" job. It can be extremely challenging at times and we often find ourselves feeling down or deflated, in need of inspiration and encouragement.

If you are a wife and/or mom who fits the description I mentioned above, do not fear. There are actually many things you can do be to more inspired and - dare I say - joyful as you live out your roles. Here are three of them:

1. Start the day right.

As a wife and mother myself, I often find that starting the day right can do wonders to my disposition for the rest of the day. "Starting right" can mean different things to different people but for a Catholic Christian like me, it usually involves spending some time in prayer and reading the Bible. For others, it might also mean writing down goals for the day, or getting some exercise, or maybe even just taking a few deep breaths.

Whatever you choose to do, make sure it is something that will help you face the day feeling lighter, with a smile on your face, ready to face whatever challenges you might encounter.

2. Remember your purpose.

Sometimes we wives and moms end up feeling "deflated," lost or uninspired because we forget why we are doing what we are doing. If this describes you perfectly, try to take a step (or two) back and remember your purpose. Why do you do the things you do? Who do you do them for? Reflect on your "inner why's" and rediscover your passion for your vocation as a wife and mother.

3. Be inspired by other women.

The phrase "No man is an island" would probably be 100 times more apt when applied to women. We are social creatures by nature, and we usually draw inspiration and encouragement from other women. It is important for us to gather together and share one another's burdens, or receive wise advice - or even just prayers - from other women.

One opportunity to gather with other women is coming up this April 30, 2016, via an event called the "Jewels Conference." Created not just for wives and moms but for women in every season of life, the conference - according to the organizers - will provide "a whole day of inspiration, learning, fellowship and fun that will surely take all your worries away."

Set to take place at the SMX Convention Center from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., the conference "seeks to empower women in their personal journey of balancing their roles, careers, relationships and dreams."

Speakers include Selene Yu of Chevrolet Philippines, Rissa Singson-Kawpeng of Kerygma Magazine, Ditas Espanol of The Light of Jesus Family and Rosanne Romero of Kerygma Books. Bestselling author and lay preacher Bo Sanchez will also be there to talk about a woman's mission and how her presence can bless the world. (You can find out more about the conference at http://www.lightfam.com/jewels).

Of course, the aforementioned are not the only things you can do to be a more inspired wife and mother, or woman in general. The key is to remember that taking care of yourself, and taking time out for yourself is as important as caring for the people in your life. After all, we cannot give what we don't have, right? Here's to being better and more inspired wives and moms!
