Mom Tips: Christmas Week Three

“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!

  • This Christmas season, feel free to slow down and say “no.” Don’t let the busyness of the season cause you stress. Say “no” so you can say “yes” to rest.
  • Take time for yourself. You can’t fill from an empty cup! Be sure to dig into God’s Word this week! He wants to fill you with His Holy Spirit and shower you with His love.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Husband!

  • Ask your husband what his favorite Christmas treat or tradition is and make that a priority to do with him or for him.
  • Plan something special that your husband will enjoy this week! Whether it is a night out or in together, doing a fun activity, or even just giving him some time alone to decompress from the busyness of the Christmas season, you know your husband best!

The Wise Woman Loves Her Children!

  • Take time this week to read your children the Christmas story directly from God’s Word, Luke 2:1-20.
  • Have a snowflake making contest. Even little ones can make simple snowflakes! See who can cut out the most detailed snowflake, the silliest, the most creative, the largest, the smallest, etc. Use the snowflakes to decorate windows in your home!

The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home!

  • Set a timer for 20 minutes, play some fun Christmas music, and clean up your house for Christmas. It is easier to enjoy your family and focus on Jesus when we are not distracted by clutter and mess.
  • Sometimes it’s difficult to be content with our home when it’s not perfectly decorated or “House Beautiful.” But to our children, the most important decoration in our home is our love. Don’t strive for a perfect home if it causes you stress and makes you grouchy. Let your home be a living laboratory of life, not perfection. Focus on creating memories of fun and laughter this coming year instead of stress!

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!
