Mom Tips: Thanksgiving

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

  • Make time to spend at least 15 minutes a day praying and reading your Bible. Take a moment to list five things for which you are thankful. Thank God for all of the ways He shows love to you and your family.
  • Be sure to complete each of the three Help Club for Moms Bible studies this week!

The Wise Woman Loves Her Husband

  • This Thanksgiving, show love to your husband by loving his family. Pray for them. Be patient, kind, and forgiving, even if your relationship is difficult. Look for the best in them, then be sure to tell them what you love and appreciate about them, in writing or in person. Your Lord and Savior, Jesus, will be well pleased with your kindness. “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God” (Matthew 5:9).
  • Pick a night to sit down with your husband after your children have gone to bed. Share what you appreciate and admire about him.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Children

  • Make a list of things you are thankful for about each of your children. Set a simple breakfast table (even if you are just eating cereal), light a candle, and read your list out loud to each child on Thanksgiving morning.
  • Create a Thanksgiving journal that can be added to each year. Pass it around the table every Thanksgiving to have your guests record their gratitude. This makes beautiful memories for years!

The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home

  • Prepare for the busyness of Thanksgiving by cleaning your refrigerator and oven. If you use special plates and serving dishes, wipe them clean.
  • Save time and have easy mashed potatoes by cooking them a day or two in advance. Prepare the potatoes, then put them in a casserole dish. When the big day arrives, bake them in the oven to have piping hot potatoes with less time. You can do that with most casseroles, too!
