Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Encouraging Others by Speaking God's Promises

“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ” (Phil 1:2).  This verse is a good reminder to preach the gospel to one another.  We all need reminders of Christ’s grace and peace, and we need to let God speak those encouraging promises through us.

It’s so easy to live under the dominion of self judgment or fear of Christ’s judgment, instead of standing tall and holding our heads high in victory because we have been covered in Christ’s blood and we live each day with the Holy Spirit breathing, speaking and working through us.  That is God’s grace.

Likewise, we need to hear and remember God’s peace covering us.  Our lives are not governed by the world’s chaos, so we don’t need to live in the shackles of fear, anxiety or darkness.  The Lord Jesus Chris is the author and director of our lives, the protector of our minds, bodies and souls.  He has offered us peace with Him through Christ’s blood and he continues to give us peace as we walk with him forevermore.  Because of his firm foundation and covering, we can live in peace and joy, free from worry, knowing how much he cares for us.

Pay attention to the people around you, and listen to God’s promptings to speak, and boldly share his grace and peace with others.
