May is the month we recognize Mother’s Day. Many of us have been fortunate enough to have been raised by a Christian mother- the encourager of your dreams, the example of a Godly woman, your biggest fan. And if you are blessed enough to be a mother, remember to nurture the souls of the children you have been given to raise. Sometimes in the midst of our busy lives, moms need “a little God-time” to get through the day. Be encouraged as you reflect on the blessing of motherhood and know that every sacrifice you make does not go unnoticed. May joy and peace be yours as you love your children as your Heavenly Father loves you.
