Mom Tips: Obedience Week Two

“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!

  • Include your entire family in making homeless baggies with socks, gloves, toothbrush, toothpaste, and other toiletries. Plan to have these on hand in your car as you drive around town. Minister God’s love by adding a pocket Bible.
  • If you happen to have extra funds this month, offer it as a gift to the Lord by purchasing fast food gift cards. Have them on hand to give away when you see someone in need.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Husband!

  • If your husband prays before meals or at bedtime, or even brings your family to church, thank him for being the spiritual leader in your home.
  • What is an area of disagreement you have been having with your husband? How can you die to yourself in this area and live in obedience to Christ this week?

The Wise Woman Loves Her Children!

  • Plan a fun outing with your kids this week. Go to a local pumpkin patch or an orchard.
  • Teach your children the Ten Commandments, quiz them after dinner, and make sure to have a sweet reward when they can recite all 10.

The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home!

  • Clean or organize that one area or space you always avoid—a junk closet or drawer.
  • As the leaves are falling, put on a jacket and grab a rake. It’s good exercise to get outside and rake the leaves before they get overwhelming. Gather your kiddos to help and to jump in piles, then rake them up again. Remember to take pictures!

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!
