- As we move into the holiday season, try not to over commit yourself. Remember, your husband needs you too. If you spread yourself too thin, you might overlook the one person who you need the most.
The Wise Woman Loves Her Children:
- Create a Thankfulness Tree with your children. Trace each child’s hand and write down what you as a family are thankful for in your life. This can be an everyday activity or a weekly activity until Thanksgiving. Place your tree on your refrigerator or your front door so you can easily see your creation.
–The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home:
- Create and organize a “GO” box for all your important papers. This should include passports, birth certificates, social security cards and legal forms such as wills. If all this paperwork is together, it will be easy to grab and go in any situation.

I remember going into my daughter's room night after night and kneeling beside her bed and crying my heart out to God because I didn’t know how to be a Christian mom; I felt like I had no idea what I was doing. You know what? God is so faithful! He answered me and simply said, “Spend time with me, Deb.” And so I did. I began arising 15-30 minutes earlier each day so I could read my Bible and pray, and plan out my day with my family.
If there was one thing I would love to share with you is that God is personal and loves you as you are. You don’t have to be perfect to be loved by our amazing God! Come as you are! His loving presence can be practically known and experienced. He is not a God who is far away, He is near and easily found. He longs for you to come to Him!
Randy and I have been married for 28 years and we have two grown children, Christie, and Jack, and one answer to prayer son-in-law named Alex. And now I get to be a Gigi to my sweet little grandbaby, Aspen! Yay!
