Gospel Hope for Moms, Visiting the Lonely, and More

Replicating Our Faith

When I started listening to this message from Kelly Needham during my morning commute, I had no idea how much it would impact the rest of my week. Kelly shared this message at a women's luncheon, which was centered on what it means to replicate our faith. While Kelly offers helpful tools to build multigenerational, Titus 2 relationships, I was most impacted by her emphasis on how hopeless we are without Christ and how important it is to cling to Him alone. Listen to this message.

Follow God to the Lonely and Hurting

“When was the last time you strayed from your circle of family and friends, set aside the to-do list, and simply visited with someone needy?” Scott Hubbard asks. “Of course, we could think of a legion of reasons for why we neglect to visit the most broken among us.” But we cannot escape the Bible’s call to visit the needy, and neither should we try, for “when we visit, we imitate our Father and give the needy categories for grasping what God is like.” Read this post.

The Hope That Moms Don't Need

It will get easier. You’re doing the hardest job in the world, but it’s a noble calling. This is only a season. “If you’re a mom, you’ve heard these words, and encouragements like them, over and over,” Maggie Combs writes. “Unfortunately, it has become all too common in Christian communities to offer moms failing and finite hopes to fight their battles, instead of the steadfast hope of the gospel.” Read this post.

Devoted: Great Men and Their Godly Moms

One of my all-time favorite blog series that we’ve shared on previous “Articles, Resources, and More” posts has now been turned into a book! This week, Tim Challies announced that his newest book, Devoted: Great Men and Their Godly Moms, is based on his articles about Christian men who counted their mothers as their primary spiritual influence. He writes, “Raising children to honor and glorify the Lord is the goal of every Christian mother, but how can you do that? One of the best ways to learn is to read examples of women who have succeeded at the very task you are attempting.” Read an excerpt of the recently released book!
