Mom Tips: Spiritual Parenting Week Two

“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 yourself this question during your quiet time this week: “Am I actively depending on the Holy Spirit to guide me on my spiritual journey?” Journal your answer. Surrender and invite the Holy Spirit to take the lead.
  • Read Proverbs 15:30. Write the verse in your journal. Take the words to heart and smile more during your everyday tasks.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Husband

  • Pick a workout or exercise routine you can do together with your husband.
  • Ask your husband to pray with you immediately after the children go to bed. It can be brief, especially if this is something new to you and your husband. If a child gets out of bed during your prayer time, instead of reprimanding, use the opportunity to model the importance of prayer together.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Children

  • Buy some journals or notebooks for your kids to write down some Bible verses about growing in Christ. Have them draw pictures or paint in their journals about what they believe it means to have a relationship with God.
  • Pick a verse for each of your children this week. Write these in a card for each of them and leave it on their bathroom mirror along with loving words of encouragement.

The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home

  • What kind of home do you want to have? Do not think about the way you want your home to look but rather, how you want it to feel and how you want the Holy Spirit to be evident within the walls of your home. Do you want to fill your home with love, warmth, peace, worship, gentleness, thankfulness, self-sacrifice, unconditional love, generosity, and discipleship? Be intentional about building those qualities into your home life.
  • Put away all of your winter clothing and accessories. Clean all the items and organize them by size, then donate or sell any unwanted items.
