Mom Tips: Thanksgiving Week One

“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!

  • Continue writing in your gratitude journal and start each day with a grateful heart. Write five blessings each day this week.
  • Memorize Psalm 107:1. What a great verse to remind us to have a thankful heart!

The Wise Woman Loves Her Husband!

  • Plan a night to sit with your husband after your children have gone to bed. Be sure to tell him what you appreciate and admire about him.
  • If your husband likes sports, watch a game with him. Show interest and excitement for his team.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Children!

  • Create a Thanksgiving journal that can be added to each year. Pass it around the table each year at Thanksgiving and have your guests record what they are thankful for. This makes beautiful “thankful” memories for years to come!
  • Make “turkey tickets” for Thanksgiving dinner. Prepare long strips of paper and give one to each of your children the day before Thanksgiving. Ask them to write down all of their blessings, fun memories from the past year, and things they can say “thank you” to God for. They must bring the turkey ticket to the table filled out in order to receive their Thanksgiving meal. Sharing what is written on the turkey tickets makes for a fun family tradition!

The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home!

  • Clean out your refrigerator to prepare for Thanksgiving leftovers.
  • Burn holiday candles, the yummy ones; cinnamon apple, oatmeal cookie, etc. The scent helps create an atmosphere of a homey refuge.

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!
