I hope you had the best Christmas ever and made many wonderful memories with your family! It’s so perfect that The Wise Woman Knows culminates with the celebration of a new year and new beginnings! I pray that you will continue this journey towards joy in motherhood over the months and years to come.
My hope is that this coming year will be your happiest year yet, regardless of any difficulties life throws your way. This has been a hard year for me and for my family, but, hallelujah, we made it through! The trails I have faced while studying biblical joy have shown me just how blessed I am to have a loyal, loving Father to rely on. While seasons of trial and triumph are temporary, the lessons we learn and the character we build through perseverance can last for eternity, making us “mature and complete, not lacking anything” (James 1:4).
May we take all the lessons we have learned throughout the last 12 weeks and continue to grow closer to our God and our families through joy and thankfulness. Our journey does not end here; this is only the start! Have a wonderful year!
Blessings and love,
Heather and the Help Club For Moms Team

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!
