Finding Joy in Who You Are in Christ Printable Pack

Find Your Joy in Christ Scripture Printable Pack

If you live gladly to make others glad in God, your life will be hard, your risks will be high, and your joy will be full. ~ John Piper Here on Talking Mom2Mom we often discuss how to find joy as moms. In the midst of all the housekeeping, homeschooling, working from home, and the myriad of other things we do as women, wives, and mothers. Joy and contentment are desired but often feel unattainable.

God Still Parts the Red Sea

And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. ~Exodus 14:13 It is easy to fall into the trap of fearing the outcome of a trial.  The Israelites were in bondage to the Egyptians like we are in bondage to fear.  We fear our financial futures, a health diagnosis or a marriage in disrepair.  We face obstacles that seem too high to jump yet we try.  We try in vain. God whispers into our hearts to stand still.  Yet that seems unnatural. Aren’t we supposed … Read more

To the Woman Waiting on God

To the Woman Waiting on God

To the woman who is waiting on God, There you are, in the waiting room of life; a place you’d never thought you’d be.  As a child with grand hopes and dreams, you never imagined yourself here, waiting on God and longing for Him to move. You never imagined you’d be lonely for a husband.  You never dreamed you’d ache for a child and beg for God to fill your empty arms.  You never thought your marriage would be in trouble, and you’d be waiting for God to mend the shambles of your relationship.  You never fathomed that disease would come and wreck havoc on your life. But here you are, at a crossroads, yet God seems silent. While you wait … Read more

Proverbs for Mothers

Proverbs for Mothers

“There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” Proverbs 12:18 We had our monthly women’s Bible study last night.  We were talking about taming the tongue.  One lady mentioned how women take so much care about what goes into their mouths but so little care concerning what comes out.  We are so worried about our figures and our health, but we rarely take account if our speech is loving or edifying. A Confession This verse in particular is the one that God brought home to my heart with conviction.  You see I am too often not kind to my children with my words.  I say “no” a lot, … Read more

Words Reveal Character: What the Bible Says about Being a Gossip

“Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit. You brood of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak what is good? For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart. The good man brings out of his good treasure what is good; and the evil man brings out of his evil treasure what is evil. But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”  Matthew 12:33-37 Looking Inward I have … Read more
