Mom Tips: Summer of Joy Week Two

The Mom Tips are designed to help you to grow closer to Jesus, offer new ideas to help you to grow in your relationships with your husband and children, and establish a Christ-centered home. At the beginning of each week, simply pray about which tips to try and check them off as you accomplish them. Completing them all or doing only one tip is just fine! As we say in the Help Club, you do you!!

The Wise Woman Builds Her Spirit

Start each day this week with a grateful heart. Write down in your journal five things for which you feel grateful every day. Also, get a pad of spiral bound index cards and write Psalm 119:105 on it. Keep it at your kitchen sink this week so that you can see it often and commit it to memory.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Husband

Choose a book to read together as a couple. Set aside a specific time together to discuss what you are learning and experiencing from your reading. Some great suggestions are The Heavenly Man by Brother Yun, The 4:8 Principle: The Secret to a Joy-Filled Life by Tommy Newberry, and Crazy Love by Francis Chan and Danae Yankoski.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Children

Have a S’mores night with your children to teach them Scripture! Gather up the graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows and head outside. Use your backyard fire pit or grill to roast the marshmallows. While eating your yummy treat, teach your children Hebrews 12:28-29: “…God is a consuming fire.” God’s fire completely transforms us, just as fire transforms marshmallows and chocolate into delicious goodness!

The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home

Focus on setting a beautiful table, complete with candles and centerpieces. Decor and music can make a regular weeknight dinner fun!
