A Mother's role is multifaceted; this might oscillate from being a wife, parent,  daughter,  sister to being an employee or employer. In this challenging and busy period, where family dynamics are constantly changing, how do you see yourself and your role? To start with, the role of a mother is a desirable one that is God-given, therefore, it is one that you cannot fulfil with ordinary strength. You need to see your life through Christ's eyes and in order to fulfil your responsibility as a mother, you need to know who you are in Christ. Mothers are custodian's of God's heritage, and this suggests that you are highly regarded by God. You have what it takes to look after God's heritage, and even if you think you dont have what it takes, you know that you must find a way of taking great care of God's heritage.

The children that God have committed in oyour care have their own minds, so dont think motherhood is a walk in the park. But, together with other mothers,  you can boldly approach the throne of grace where mercy and grace can be obtained for the effective fulfillment of this role. Be patient with yourself, be courageous, love yourself, love your child and don't give up on your child. 

Single Mothers

The first thing that I would say to you is to stop blaming yourself. You deserve to be happy and to enjoy your life. Release yourself into God's arms and let Him embrace you. God wants to simplify this period of your life if only you will allow Him. As a single mother in Christ, you are  a partner with God. You are not alone; God is with you as the Senior partner and the burden bearer. I pray that you will find love, grace, comfort, peace, joy, and hope in Him.

You can connect with other mothers who can support you and be listening ears.

Expectant Mothers

What a joy and privilege to carry your baby/babies in the womb! It is a moment to be enjoyed. Yes! A moment to be enjoyed, even in the midst of the morning sicknesses and cramps. The Lord who started the good work in you is able to complete it.

Mothers in Isreal - Pastor's wives

Supporting your husband in ministry is honourable as you advance God's Kingdom together with your husband. It is a demanding and rewarding role.

Proverbs 31:31

Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Dear Lord, I thank you for being gracious to me.

Father, give me the wisdom, strength and grace to care

for my children in a way that will be pleasing to you.

Let your love, peace and joy fill my home. In Jesus Christ's name I have prayed. Amen
