“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” Phil 4:8.

The Mom Tips are meant to enhance your life and role as a Christian wife, mom, discipler of your children, homemaker, and friend.

Do what you can and celebrate the fact that you added something new to enhance your life!

The Wise Woman Builds Her Spirit:

Begin your journey learning to think true thoughts with the following exercises:

  • Record a few Bible verses on your phone that speak truth to the lies you have been thinking. For example: If you feel like you can never be free from the sins of your past and you will never change your bad habits, record 1 Corinthians 5:17 to remind you that you are a NEW creation and with God, all things are possible, and you can have lasting change in your life.
  • Listen to your recording four times this week.
  • Days completed: 1. _____ 2. _____  3. _____ 4. _____

Next, do this exercise three days this week when you wake up to help you to start your day on the right foot:

  • Think of three things that you are thankful for.
  • Determine each day that you are going to be joyful and content.
  • Remind yourself that you are strong! Ask God to help you to “be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.” Ephesians 6:10

Days completed: 1. _____ 2. _____  3. _____

The Wise Woman Loves Her Husband:

  • Prayerfully pray and ask God to show you how to love your husband in a way he feels loved. Find out what his love language is. If you haven’t already done so, read the book, “The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate” by Gary D. Chapman.
  • Write his love language here:_____________________________________________
  • Do something this week to show your husband you love him in the way he feels loved.
  • Write it here:________________________________________________________.

The Wise Woman Loves Her Children:  

  • Read the “The 5 Love Languages of Children” by Gary D. Chapman.
  • Prayerfully consider which love language accurately describes each of your children.
  • Write each of your children’s love languages here:_____________________________________________________________________
  • Show each of them love this week in a way they feel loved. Write what you did and their responses in your journal.

The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home: 

  • Do the “5 o’clock pick-up” 4 days this week. Put on fun music, set a timer for 15 minutes, and you and your children go through all the main living areas and pick up everything everywhere. Give each of your children a basket to put their things in and then have them put it all away. Stop after 15 minutes.
  • Days completed: 1. _____ 2. _____  3. _____ 4. _____
  • I love this idea from “The Fly Lady.” Before you go to bed for four nights this week, make sure your sink is clean. Get all of the dishes washed or in the dishwasher. Turn the dishwasher on. When you wake up in the morning, rejoice knowing that your dishes are put away, and you are ready for your day!
  • Days completed: 1. _____ 2. _____  3. _____ 4. _____

Deb Weakly

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!

  1. I really enjoyed reading these mom tips and have found them extremely helpful! I have not read either of the Five Love Launguages books so I will be looking into getting them both in the future! I am so blessed to be able to of joined this group and am excited to really dive into these helpful tips! Thank you Deb!

  2. These are such great and powerful tools to take control of our thoughts!!
    I love these tips!

    One thing is that when I printed them, they came out teeny tiny. I think I’d rather have 2 pages and be able to read them at a glance than small font 🙂 Or I may be getting old! Ha!

  3. Great mom tips this week! I especially love the one about thinking of three things we are thankful for in the morning and the verse in Ephesians you chose. For me, it is very powerful to say certain verses out loud. I am all about speaking verses over my day. I think it is an integral tool also in our battle for our thoughts (the theme this week) and to fight against Satan. 🙂
