Mom Tips: Christmas Week Four

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit…” John 15:5

The Wise Woman Builds Her Spirit!

  • Take some time to think of something you want to give Jesus this year. Maybe you have been holding back from giving Him every part of your heart, maybe you want to spend more time with Him in prayer or in His Word, perhaps you want to fall more deeply in love with Him than ever before. Don’t commit this gift to Jesus with your words only, make a plan to implement it throughout the coming year.
  • Read the story of Christ’s birth in Luke 1-2. Think of how Mary must have felt as Jesus’ mother. Praise God for the absolute blessing He has given you in allowing you to be a mother to His precious little ones!

The Wise Woman Loves Her Husband!

  • How can you bless your husband during this busy week? Take some time to serve him in a way that is meaningful to him!
  • Pray that your husband will know the depth of the Savior’s love for him! Pray that he will seek Jesus in a new, deeper way this Christmas.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Children!

  • Choose to show your children the love of their Savior in an even greater way this week! The week of Christmas can be stressful, with many events, preparation, baking, cleaning, or traveling. When you feel frustrated, don’t speak, pray! God will give you a peaceful spirit and words of gentleness for your family!
  • Act out the story of Jesus’ birth this week with your children! You don’t need fancy costumes or a script. Read the story from either a children’s Bible or the first part of Luke, and let your kids take control of the props and acting! This type of playtime will make the true meaning of Christmas even more real to your children! You can even do this with older kids! It will likely turn out much more humorous, but what a meaningful family tradition to start!

The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home!

  • Try to have short, 15-minute family clean up times daily throughout this week. Your house will stay relatively clean, and you will be able to enjoy some rest during this Christmas week!
  • Take some time to really sit and soak up all the ways, large and small, God has provided for you and blessed you this past year, the greatest of which is the gift of Jesus!

Co-founder at Help Club for Moms
My name is Deb Weakly and I helped create the Help Club for Moms with one goal in mind: to create a community in which moms help moms to know the love of Christ. My own childhood was difficult and filled with sadness. I didn’t grow up in a Christian home, so when I became a Christian (and soon after, a mom), I had no idea what I was doing; I didn’t know what it meant to raise Christ-centered kids, but I so desperately wanted to learn.

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!
