A Mother's Day Present for You

A Friend sent this to me. Happy Mother's Day.

Newborn’s Conversation with God

A baby asked God, “They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?” God said, “Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you.”

The child further inquired, “But tell me, here in heaven I don’t have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.” God said, “Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel’s love and be very happy.”

Again the child asked, “And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don’t know the language?” God said, “Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.”

“And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?” God said, “Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.”

“Who will protect me?” God said, “Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life.”

“But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.” God said, “Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you.”

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, “God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel’s name.”

God said, “You will simply call her, Mom.”

Modest clothing for Preteen/Teen Girls

We have talked before on this blog about the difficulty of finding modest clothes for girls. I wanted to let you know about a website I found. The website is They do not sell clothes in particular, but they have fashion shows showing how to choose modest clothing. Also, they have modest clothing guidelines you can print out. A great way to have specifics to help your daughter in choosing clothing. Check out the website and they may have a club in your area.

Open Comment Section

I moved the current Open Comment Section up to the top, so more people could post.
Here are the most recent comments.

I am a newer mom and teacher who made the decision to go back to work this year.
I did a search and found this site in hopes to be connected with other christian moms, whom at one point or another have faced a difficult decision as career women---what is best for their children and family---remaining at work or transitioning to staying at home. We recently moved and have not found a church family here (which has made this time of my mommy-hood and making the decision to go back to work all that more difficult to get through). I am hoping to get both some prayer from other Christian women as well as advise from anyone else who can offer it and or a verse of encouragement.
Thank you.

Hi Hayley,

Welcome to the CWM community. If you would like a prayer partner send an email to me at and I will try to match you with someone. Moving to a new town, new job, and a new Mom - you have a lot on your plate. I remember we moved when my daughter was 10 months old and took a long time to find a church. I was extremely lonely. As for going back to work I think each woman struggles with that differently. I am convinced that God does not have a one size plan that fits all. Each family has to pray and decide what is best for their family. On the main page of the CWM site there is an article about what the Bible says about CWM. The verse that stands out for me for you right now is Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to give you hope and a future." Recently, I read a commentary that said it should read for God has thoughts of you. No matter what you are going through right now it does not catch God by surprise. Trust him and ask for his clear guidance. I pray God will be more than sufficient for you right now.

Hello -

I'm a CWM - married with a 6 year old son. I sometimes feel a guilty and overwhelmed about not having my house as clean as I wish it was.. Sometimes I think about finding a housekeeper that would come to my house every 2 or 3 weeks to help me clean my home but I immediately feel guilty about having to pay someone to do something I should be doing. What do you suggest I do?

Hi Anonymous,

I certainly understand not having enough time to clean. If you can afford to have someone clean your house then do it. You will have more time with you son and be less stressed. When I look at the Proverbs 31 woman it says she managed her servants. So, she probably had someone cooking or even cleaning some. I think as CWMs we do guilt so well. The ultimate goal is getting your house clean, whether you do it or someone else. So, my suggestion is have someone clean and then be able to relax and goof off with you son. Hope that helped some.
