Mom Tips: Spiritual Parenting Week One

“Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” Colossians 2:7 (NLT)

The Wise Woman Builds Her Spirit

  • Ask a mom and her kids on a play date.
  • Write Romans 12:2 on your chalkboard, mirror or a notecard to keep at your kitchen sink. Commit to memorizing the verse by the end of the week. For further study and growth, read Romans 1:18-3:20 and journal about how you/we can cultivate a renewed mind.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Husband

  • Write 1 Corinthians 16:13 on a notecard, and slip it into your husband’s work bag. Pray for your husband to have courage in all that he does, in and out of the home.
  • Take time this week to pray with your husband. Ask God how He wants to shape you as parents and how to set the tone of your home.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Children

  • Every day this week, ask your kids something new. Instead of “How was your day?” or “How was school?,” ask something like “How can I pray for you tonight?” “What was the best part of your day?” What did you do to have fun today?” or “What did you do to grow closer to God?”
  • Offer a blessing over your children this week. Look them in the eyes, touch them with your hands, tell them you love them, and pour into them all your heart desires to say. Do not worry about what to say; the Holy Spirit will guide you.

The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home

  • Double your recipe for dinner one night. Box up leftovers for tomorrow, or take a meal to a single or elderly neighbor.
  • It’s time for spring cleaning! Get printable spring cleaning check lists from Pinterest to kickstart your housework.
