Family Mom Tips Week One
“The wise woman builds her house.” Proverbs 14:1a
The Mom Tips are meant to enhance your life and role as a Christian wife, mom, discipler of your children, homemaker, and friend.
Simply pray about which ideas to try and keep this list on your fridge all week. Check them off as you accomplish them. You can also do more than what is suggested. We all are in different stages of our lives. You do you!
Do what you can and celebrate the fact that you added something new to enhance your life!
The Wise Woman Builds Her Spirit:
- Write Romans 12:10 on your chalkboard or bathroom mirror. Memorize it by the end of the week.
- Pray for your family every day this week. Pray the Lord will open your eyes that you may see the members of your family that way the Lord sees each of them.
The Wise Woman Loves Her Husband:
- Clean out your husband’s car for him this week. Throw away any trash. Wipe down all surfaces and clean all the windows. Take the car to the car wash or have the children help wash the car. If your husband keeps a clean car, that is wonderful. Take the opportunity to clean out your car. He will appreciate the effort.
- Pray for your husband to be a man of faith this week. Write your prayer in your prayer binder. Use 1 Samuel 12:24 as a guide.
The Wise Woman Loves Her Children:
- Sit down as a family and create a Summer Bucket List. Have every child participate and write the list on a poster board. Hang the poster board in the kitchen and check off the items when completed.
- Plan to eat dinner as a family at least three nights a week this week. Sit down together and pray over your meal. Take the time to talk to one another about your day. Ask your children leading questions to encourage conversation.
The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home:
- Put together a “Go Box” for your car to help alleviate stress when traveling on the road this summer. Grab a plastic shoe box and fill it with a couple of bottles of water, suckers, applesauce pouches, band aids, stickers, small notebooks, markers and whatever small treat your children like. Stick it in your car and pull it out when you have that moment of need (or panic) on the road.
- Write the following quote on a notecard “As a mother, my job is to take care of the possible and trust God with the impossible.” Ruth Bell Graham. Place the notecard somewhere important. Let the words remind you that with God, hard tasks are possible. Bring your worries and lay them at his feet. Trusting God is one of the best gifts you can give your family.
