Mom Tips: Holy Spirit Week One

“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!

  • Would you like an easy way to organize your prayers? We love the idea of having a prayer binder. It’s an easy way to keep all your prayers at your fingertips and will help you make a lifelong habit of prayer. For suggestions visit https://helpclubformoms.com/how-to-make-a-prayer- binder/.
  • Play praise and worship music in your car this week while running errands. Dig deeper by listening to the Bible on CD.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Husband!

  • Acknowledge your husband and family as soon as they walk into the house by saying “hello” to them. This simple act let them know they matter to you. Make your home the place they desire to be because they are well-loved by their family. Teach your children to say hello to one another, too!
  • If your husband is having a difficult week and is not himself, instead of being offended and hurt, take the opportunity to pray a blessing over him. Pray that God would flood your husband’s heart with His love, peace, and grace. You are your husband’s biggest prayer warrior. James 4:11 reminds us to not speak against one another.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Children!

  • Instead of catching your children being bad, catch them being good this week. Every time you see a child acting or behaving in a good and positive way, stop and praise them. Remember to say thank you.
  • Take the time this week to learn about an unreached people group. www.Joshuaproject.net is a good resource. Find pictures and information about their culture and way of life. Pray for them and perhaps make a fun poster. Talk to your children about the importance of prayer, missions, and outreach (Mark 16:15, Matthew 28:19).

The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home!

  • Fall is the perfect time to make homemade snacks! Fruit strips, oatmeal raisin cookies, granola peanut butter balls, banana tortilla “sushi” roll ups, and frozen pudding pops are easy, healthy, and yummy snacks to have on hand.
  • Before purchasing something for your home, visualize where it will go and if you have money for it in your budget. If it is a large purchase, try waiting at least 24 hours before making your final decision. Allow yourself to go without until the time is right.

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!
