Mother’s Day is one of my favorite holidays
Not just because I’m a mother and I often get gifts and taken out to dinner or lunch. I often have all my children together too, which is one of my favorite things. I love to celebrate all women who devote their lives or a part of their lives to care for children.
When we see caring for children as the privilege of raising the next generation of Godly men and women it truly becomes a calling and not just something we have to do.
In addition to mothers, I’d like to encourage you to see women who aren’t mothers in the main sense of the word. But they serve as Sunday school teachers, nursery workers, Vacation Bible School leaders and dozens of other ways. They often take advantage of teachable moments when a parent isn’t around to instill some small truth into a child’s life. Therefore they are planting seeds for someone to water and for the Lord to use them to grow them into the man or woman he wants them to be.
In our church, several families welcome other families little one to sit with them during the service. Giving the parents a short break and getting to enjoy some time with a younger child. We had this happen last week and it was a joy.
I tend to forget the simple pleasure younger children take in all aspects of life.
Even a simple thank you can encourage them to keep on adding to the training your children are receiving.
Below you will find a variety of gifts a mother or sister-in-the-Lord might enjoy. There are some you might even enjoy yourselves. Feel free to put them on your Mother’s Day list.

In Spite of Myself: How Intentional Praise Can Transform Your Heart and Home by Katie Hornor
They say there are three things of utmost importance to human beings: health, love, and money. And that the lack of one of those things is enough to throw your life into a storm. They also say that most marriages face only one major crisis, but if it comes early in your marriage, you may have another.
While these sayings may or may not be true, Katie Hornor has had at least one crisis in each of those three areas. And as she’s learned to praise the Lord for his goodness both in and out of the storms, she begins to see a pattern. Praise brought healing where there would have been anger and bitterness. Healing allowed her to share her story with others, giving them hope for God’s healing in their lives as well. Praise, Healing, and Hope.
Regardless of your story, There is only one who can heal your heart, teach it to praise and transform your heart and home. You will find him, and the power of his Truth presented in every page of this riveting 4-week Bible study. Get your copy here and go through the book with the free daily videos provided on the author’s website.
