How do you teach your children to be Thankful?

Thanksgiving is coming. As Christians every day should be Thanksgiving. We should daily praise and thank God for who He is and the many blessings he has given us. Most of all that we are thankful for the gift of salvation and that He drew us to Himself. Our world does not focus on thankfulness. So, please share some ways you help teach your children to be thankful.

What is your biggest struggle?

As a Christian Working Mom what do you think your biggest struggle is right now? It doesn't necessarily have to be as a CWM. Sometimes I think when we are seeing others struggle just as much as we are we can be encouraged. Also, if you could share what has helped you most during this current struggle. I am in a study right now entitled, "When Life is Hard" by James MacDonald. He said if you are not experiencing trials as a believer then maybe you are not His child. Trials are just part of a believer's life. To find out more read Hebrews 12:1-18. For me right now I know I'm God's child. How about you?

School is starting

Depending on where you live school is starting in the next few weeks. My children start next week. I'm curious do you buy school supplies before school starts, after school starts, or throughout the year? Any special back to school traditions you have as a family?

How can your church support you as a CWM?

Often we talk about how we don't feel the church supports us as a CWM. What could your church specifically do to support you as a CWM?

CWM Bible Studies

I have talked to several CWMs lately who have started Bible studies at their church or in their community for CWMs. If you have started a group could you share your experience and what resources you use?

Also, I have been giving some thought to possibly working on Bible studies for CWMs to use in a group. Is that something you would be interested in?

Thanks in advance for your help and I'm looking forward to learning what you all are doing.

Does your church serve baby food or solid food?

A very sad statistic recently came out that between 58-84% of graduating youth from church youth groups are not returning to church. A trend I'm noticing in children and youth programs at churches is the goal is to entertain and have fun. There doesn't seem to be a lot of solid Bible teaching going on. Now I know that is not true in all churches. So, my question to you is does your church still serve baby food or has it graduated to solid food? Do you feel you are getting in-depth study of the word in your own Sunday School class or small group?

I'm Bored

Summer is here, (maybe not officially) because children are getting out of school. I have posted this before, but how do you handle the inevitable "I'm Bored" during the summer. Also, what free or low cost things have you found to do?

Is May busier than December

For all you CWMs who have school age children is May a busier month than December for you? Just this week I have 2 nights with both children having events at the same time in, of course, different places. This month has been crazy!

What do you like best about being a Mom?

In honor of Mother's Day coming up, what do you like best about being a Mom? I will start the discussion. I love watching my children excel in the talents God has given them. It is so neat to see them coming into their own personalities.

Is your work place Christian friendly?

I'm interested in what your work place is like. Are you the only Christian at your workplace or are there other believers? How comfortable are you shining Christ light in your workplace? Looking forward to what you have to share.

How do you celebrate Easter at your house? Do you have any creative ways of sharing your faith during this time of celebration of our Lord's death and resurrection?

Prayer Requests

I thought we could come together more as a CWM community when we pray for one another. The web is a very public place. So, if you would like to post a prayer request be careful how many details you share. God knows who you are and your need. Then, let's agree to pray for one another. If you agree to pray for someone who leaves a request, please let them know by posting here on the blog. Thanks in advance for praying and Praise God for answered prayer.

Valentine's Day

Do you like Valentine's Day? I'm not trying to trip you up. Some people feel Valentine's Day was invented by Hallmark (maybe it was - I don't know). Others love doing the romantic thing. I know for us often we couldn't find a babysitter or a non busy restaurant to go out to on Valentine's Day. So, be honest do you like Valentine's Day or do you feel pressured by it? Not to mention often you have to give valentines for your children's class as well.

Is there anything wrong with Facebook and Social Media?

I would really like your input about Facebook. Are you on Facebook, myspace, twitter, etc? How much time do you spend on those activities? Here is my dilemna. First, of all most of these sites people are extremely focused on self and share that with everyone else. Secondly, as a therapist I am seeing an explosion of Facebook affairs. People getting connected with their highschool sweethearts again and leaving their families. Now on the flip side. I enjoy staying connected with my nieces who live in another state. Also, friends that live in other states. I just think there is a danger with Facebook. Also, do you use Facebook, etc. to share Christ with others? I think as with anything we need to watch how we spend our time and does it glorify God. I'm interested to hear what you think.
