I have mentioned my friend, Margaret, many times on this BLOG, but I don't think I've ever solely done a post on her.
God blessed me 9 or 10 years ago when I met this wonderful lady at MOPS. We instantly connected over potty-training! We started inviting each over and calling one another. This friendship has been cemented in God's love, as we have done Bible study after Bible study with one another. We have such completely different backgrounds, so it adds such a dimension of depth and perspective to our lives.
Margaret is married to a hard-working farmer and has two children. She works hard to sell their natural-hormone free beef. They also have acres of wheat and are raising natural-range free chickens. She was a Spanish teacher for years, but has made the hard choice to stay home to be there for her kids and serve her husband. I'm so proud of her for that!
Margaret is so good for me because she is always ready for an adventure! She is great about getting me out of the house and is so patient with the little ones. She likes to play and is very enthusiastic.
She called me up and invited us to come over to their campsite down by the Columbia River. It was a great day and the kids had so much fun!
Margaret introduced me to my dear Titus 2 friend, Catherine. I am so thankful that they have included me in their friendship. I am changed because of these two women who constantly challenge me to do the right thing in my marriage and in my parenting.
I am blessed to have friends who won't let me get away with anything! I need accountability!
Margaret, I love you and thank you for being a great friend to me. It has been a privilege to pray with you and watch you grow in the Lord over the years. I wouldn't be who I am without your friendship. Thank you!!!!!
"Show me your way , oh Lord, teach me Your paths; guide me in Your truth and teach me for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long." -Psalm 25:4-5 My Mission for this BLOG is to bring glory to God as I share what He is teaching me as I raise my children for Him. I want to encourage mothers all around the world to hang in there! Motherhood is tough, challenging and gritty. But through Christ's strength and the support of other moms who are in the trenches, I will keep pressing towards the goal to raise Godly children. Please feel free to leave comments. It blesses me so much! You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a Stay-At-Home mother of six children. We LOVE having a large family. My first love, is Christ and the Words of the Bible. My passion is to teach my children about the Lord. I love to watch my children discover their own faith in God. My husband has been a firefighter for over 20 years and is now an officer. I am very proud of him. I long to be a Titus 2 woman who encourages other women to love their husbands and children and to thrive in their homes, not just survive.
The noblest calling in the world is that of a mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. She who can paint a masterpiece or who can write a book that will influence millions deserves the plaudits and admiration of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting an influence throughout the ages long after paintings shall have faded, and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give. -David O. McKay Motherhood is the one thing in all the world which most truly exemplifies the God-given virtues of creating and sacrficing. Though it carries the woman close to the brink of death, motherhood also leads her into the very realm of the fountians of life and makes her co-partner with the Creator in bestowing upon eternal spirits mortal life. -David O McKay We can't form our children on our own concepts; we must take them and love them as God gives them to us. -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is his reward. -Psalm 127:3 The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom -Henry Ward Beecher The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children. -Elaine Heffner People who say they sleep like babies usually don't have them. -Leo J. Burke
To be a mother is a woman's greatest vocation in life. She is a partner with God. No being has a position of such power and influence. She holds in her hands the destiny of nations, for to her comes the responsibility and opportunity of molding the nation's citizens. -Spencer W. Kimball
