Suggestions of the Week
Why won’t my kids listen? How can I be a better spouse? Where can I find a good friend? What can I do about my children’s allergies? How can I find time to pray? Why is my home such a mess? Why can’t I be a better mother. . . like her?
God cares about all of your motherhood matters, both big and small. Jesus tells us that the “very hairs of your head are all numbered” and that God knows when a sparrow falls. “Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows” (Luke 12:7). When you are drowning in diapers or losing arguments to your tweens/teens, God is there with you and he cares about all of these matters.
