Encouragement for Moms




Hello, my dear readers, it's a beautiful Monday morning here and I want to encourage you to start your week out being refreshed in His Word, strengthened in His power and encouraged by His spirit.

Know that all you do as a wife and mother is a ministry to the Lord. The cup that you fill, the meal that you make, the socks that you fold and the clothes that you mend. Every single and last bit of it is your kingdom work for Him and counts tremendously.

Here are some encouraging quotes on Motherhood for  you to remind  you of your might impact:

Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs in my field, since the payment is pure love.  ~Mildred B. Vermont

I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me.  They have clung to me all my life.  ~Abraham Lincoln

The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.  ~HonorĂ© de Balzac

An ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy.  ~Spanish Proverb

 A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.  ~Washington Irving

A little girl, asked where her home was, replied, "where mother is."  ~Keith L. Brooks

One good mother is worth a hundred schoolmasters.  ~George Herbert

I cannot forget my mother.  [S]he is my bridge.  When I needed to get across, she steadied herself long enough for me to run across safely.  ~Renita Weems


Mothers, ask the Lord for wisdom this week as you embark on it. Take each minute to truly relish every moment and try not to hurry through your day to cross off your self-made to do list. Don't be angry because your home is messy or cluttered but know that your family lives there and be thankful for that. Thank Him for everything because without Him you would not be alive.  Slow down and enjoy the many rich blessings the Lord has bestowed upon you and you will have a blessed day!

Thank you. I really needed to hear this today. When no one appreciates or recognizes our efforts it's nice to know that God does. Bless you.

Thank you! I really like all of these quotes, very encouraging. Being a mom of teenagers and young adults, I especially appreciate the reminder found in this one:

I cannot forget my mother. [S]he is my bridge. When I needed to get across, she steadied herself long enough for me to run across safely. ~Renita Weems

Never give up, stay strong!!
God bless you all this week. ♥

Great words of encouragement for this mama. All of those quotes were inspiring, but one really made me think: An ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy! Never heard that one before but it's worth thinking upon!

Thanks for the lovely opening to the week after a particularly difficult Monday morning with one of my little guys. It did remind me why I miss my own mother so desperately sometimes too.
