Mom Tips: Obedience 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!

  • Prayerfully consider fasting from a meal, caffeine, chocolate, or something you feel God asking you to give up this week. It could be for one meal, one day, or the whole week. Is there a question or concern that you need to give over to God? Use the practice of fasting to help you grow closer to the Lord and understand His plan for you. Use this time wisely by planning extra time with the Lord in Bible reading and prayer.
  • Lay several open Bibles around your house to pick up for a quick read throughout the day as you’re cleaning, cooking, and going about your day.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Husband!

  • When your husband asks you to do something this week, do it with a smile. A simple smile can show that you love to help and serve him.
  • Be intentional about setting aside intimate time with your husband; schedule it in your week.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Children!

  • Make an “Awesome Jar” – A medium-sized jar in which to put notes you write, recording when you see a child being awesome, without being asked (opening a door for someone, cleaning, sharing or giving something away, etc). When the jar is full, take your children somewhere fun or let them pick a special place to go.
  • We all want our children to have a servant’s heart but there is no better way for them to learn than to see us serve. This week try to serve their hearts. Get up before your children and surprise them in their bed with a tasty drink. Take a few minutes to just spend time with them.

The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home!

  • Encourage someone today—right now. Call that friend who has been in the back of your mind. Send that email or letter that you have written about 10 times and never sent. Text someone you have not seen in church for a few weeks. Drop in and visit an elderly neighbor. There is someone in your life who needs to hear from you.
  • Clean your dishwasher the natural way with this 2-step process; place a dishwasher-safe cup full of vinegar on the top rack, and run on the hottest setting. Next, sprinkle a handful of baking soda on the bottom of the dishwasher and run the washer again on hot cycle.

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!
