Mother’s Day Encouragement

Mother's day pancakesMother’s Day comes every year, and with it comes all sorts of emotions. Our links today are meant to encourage women, wherever they are.

In “Dear Mother…” one woman writes a letter to Moms everywhere with a loud: There is on perfect mother.

And “What if You Really Are Just a Mom?” See motherhood for the gift and calling it is.

Finally, one woman shares from her personal growth in Christ in “How God Makes Beauty from Barrenness” about being used by God as a spiritual mother.

Sportsmanship and the Christian life

What others might see as a weakness, we are challenged to see as an opportunity to something greater. Read the Op-Ed piece by Chuck Colson entitlted “Perfect Sportsmanship” and talk about how you would have reacted. Are you inspired to smile and forgive on the field? It is, after all, just a game– a game that lets your true heart and values show.

This post is intended for adults, young adults, teens and children and it discusses issues of sportsmanship, integrity, and being an example of Christ through forgiveness.
