Psalm 145:4,5 says “One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts. They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty, and I will meditate on your wonderful works.
My mother is my role model for motherhood. She and I are similar in our love and passion for God’s word but we are very different in personality. I’ve always been a sanguine and she has always been a little more reserved.
The best thing my mom ever did for me was equip me for life by teaching me to fall in love with God and his word. Through her example and love of scriptures – I too fell in love with her Savior. She taught me how to read the word and apply it and how to always go to the scriptures first for answers in times of trouble. She taught me how to share my faith and not be ashamed. She taught me how to go against the flow in a public school and be secure in my faith.
Mom always had her colored pencils on the kitchen table where she worked hard preparing to lead her precept Bible studies. If we had a problem – mom had the solution with a verse attached and if mom said she was praying – we knew – something was going to happen – because mom’s prayers were powerful!
