Mothers' Impact

Nº 301

May 7, 2024

The woman who makes a sweet, beautiful home, filling it with love and prayer and purity, is doing something better than anything else her hands could find to do beneath the skies. A true mother is one of the holiest secrets of home happiness. - J R Miller

My mother passed away 20-years ago this week. In the United States, and many other countries, this week we also celebrate Mother’s’ Day.

My mother had her flaws, but she got many of the big things right. Every day before school we had family devotions. She led a weekly children’s Bible Club, taught Sunday school, supervised Vacation Bible School, and volunteered at our summer camp.

As dementia took its toll on her mind and body, her spirit seemed to resonate with the simple truth she had shared with so many children. Beside her bed was a small music player that recycled familiar lyrics such as, Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so. And Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world.

My mother, like many others, played a significant role in the spiritual development of the next generation. Paul reminded Timothy of the spiritual impact his mother and grandmother had made. “I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice, and I am persuaded, now lives in you also.” (2 Timothy 1:5)

Thank you for influencing the next generation for Christ!

Happy Mother’s Day.
