Mom Tips: Summer of Joy Week Three

“The wise woman builds her house.” Proverbs 14:1a

The Wise Woman Builds Her Spirit

Write Isaiah 64:8 in your journal or on your bathroom mirror with a dry erase marker, and work on memorizing this verse. As you read the verse, remember that God is the Potter and you are the clay. God is willing and able to gently mold you into his likeness!

The Wise Woman Loves Her Husband

Call your mother-in-law this week just to say hello. Tell her something you appreciate about her. Let her know how much you love and value the son she raised.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Children

Enroll your children in your local library’s summer reading program. Make family reading goals and read aloud every day. Also, let your children help you clean! Assign them household tasks so they can share the load. Decide what works best with your routine: small, daily chores; once a week, or a combination of the two. Give all of your children their own responsibilities. Even a child as young as three can help by sorting dirty laundry, putting away clean clothes, gathering trash from each can around the house on trash day, or helping to unload the dishwasher.

The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home

Create a snack station in your pantry and refrigerator. Designate a spot that is child-accessible and stock it with cut-up fruits, vegetables, and whatever else your children like for snacks.
