Weekend Giveaway and Celebration
It’s Friday and for many people means winding down the work-week and looking forward to weekend events and time with the family. FAMILY…I love that word. There is no more sacred institution than the one God created first…the family unit. It was His plan that a husband and wife cultivate a home and marriage and bring children into the world.
What I understand about myself is that I don’t know everything I need to know to be the wife and momma that God created me to be. God chose the children the I would mother and equipped me with what they needed but it’s up to me to cultivate and bring to harvest those attributes so that my children receive from an earthly momma what God intended for them to have. How do I do that? By studying God’s word and learning from other Godly women who have gone before me on this journey of motherhood.
Much of what I know about mothering I learned from my grandmother (Ninnie) and from my own mother. I learned how to cook, clean, nurture, plant gardens, can and freeze the harvest, and to give love completely freely and unconditionally. Am I successful in all of those areas? Not always…I did not inherit the Martha Stewart gene for cleaning!!! LOL
Spiritually, I needed to learn more about God’s role for mothers and how to practically apply God’s truths in our home and write God’s words upon the hearts of my children. Nine years ago, Memorial Day weekend in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Sally Clarkson entered my world and changed my view of Biblical motherhood. She became my Titus 2 mentor in this area of life. I had no idea at the time, how much her life and wisdom would impact my life and the lives of my children.
At that conference, Sally spoke about “touching your child’s heart for eternity.” I was captivated, convicted, and convinced that I needed to learn so much more from this Godly women. I have become a student of Clay and Sally Clarkson. I own every book they have written, attend conferences at every opportunity and have been privileged to spend a weekend at the home in Colorado learning to be a more effective writer and speaker.
God has worked in amazing ways and now all these years later, Sally has gone from being a woman on a stage that I admired to being a dear, personal friend and friend. Months ago, Clay and Sally began working on creating a new blog that would serve as a place for moms who are searching for encouragement, advice, and practical ways to reach their children’s hearts for eternity. They enlisted the help of two of my amazing friends, Kristen Kill and Misty Krasawski and now the dream is a reality!!!
