Mom Tips: Love of God 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!

  • Get a pad of spiral-bound index cards to keep at your kitchen sink and download a voice recording app on your phone. These tools will be used frequently to help you memorize Scripture.
  • Buy a new journal or notebook from the store. Dedicate it as a place to jot down what you are thankful for as you go throughout your days. Even if you only add one or two items a day, you will fill the pages over time! Every so often, come back to it and be reminded of how God is working in your life! Allow your family to get in on it too!

The Wise Woman Loves Her Husband!

  • Ask your husband how you can pray for him this week. Is he experiencing challenges at work? Can you commit to praying for these challenges to help ease his burden? Remember to listen with an open heart when he shares his concerns with you.
  • As a couple, go online to find a love language test to learn how each of you receives love differently. Ask your husband how you can exhibit love toward him and put these ideas into action. Most importantly, be willing to learn when you don’t understand his perspective.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Children!

  • When you say goodnight to your children this week tell them something that they did well. Help them see the gifts God has given them that they use naturally during their day. This encourages your children to know that God is moving in their lives today, not just once they “grow up.” Read 1 Timothy 4:12 to show them that they can be an example even to you!
  • Consider adding a devotion time with your kids (any age!) this week. Gather a Bible or children’s devotional book and some paper (to illustrate what is being read). Have fun together by reading God’s Word, acting it out, praying together and for each other, learning a short Bible verse by making up silly actions to go along with it, singing, and talking about the questions your kids have or what God is doing in their lives. Do as much or as little as you want; every bit counts! Have fun! This is a new habit worth forming with your children!

The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home!

  • Make your bed first thing this week, as soon as you wake up. An easy way to get started is to make one side at a time. Simple, intentional tasks always start the day on a positive note.
  • Do the “15-minute pick up” with your children right before your husband comes home. Set a timer for 15 minutes; pick up everything that is out of place and put it away. Focus on the shared living areas of your home and have everyone help. Bless your husband with a picked up house.

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!

  1. Could you recommend a family devotional or study to do with teens? We’ve gotten out of the habit as our two have gotten older. (14 year old boy and 16 year old girl)
