This site was created as a resource for women to ask another M.O.M. (Mother of Many) questions they have regarding the daily duties as wife and mother. Some of my most favorite, life changing conversatons have been when my momma took a moment to share and invest herself into my life. Thus the reason for the name of the blog, "A Moment with M.O.M." I share out of my own experience and my desire to see women living victoriously in their homes. Most of all, I share out of my love and thanksgiving to the Lord. If you have a question, commment, or prayer request, please use the "mailbox" on the right hand sidebar to email me. As of Nov. 2010 my mother and girls have come along side me to minister here at the blog. I am excited to see what God has in store for each of us. I delight in training my girls to be "older" women no matter what season of life they are in. There is always someone "younger" that we can influence for the Glory of God. My girls do delight in serving others the sharing here is just an extention of that love. I hope you will find encouragement from their sharing no matter how old you might be. We look forward to sharing our hearts freely with you so that you might be encouraged in your personal walk with the Lord.
As a young woman, I attended a summer seminary that trained missionaries to go out into the world and share the gospel. After the summer-long course, I had the desire to be a missionary to the Asian world and hoped one day to minister to those in this far-away land. But God had a different plan for my life. At the beginning of that same year, in the fall, I met my future husband and we came together as partners for life through marriage the following summer. Our desire was to serve the LORD and my husband loved ministering to the youth, so began our service together. For many years, we opened our home to children from 3rd grade to high schoolers to minister to them through fellowship; we worked in our church as Directors and leaders for the AWANA Youth Clubs and we taught Sunday school. Our life was full as we ministered to these children and to our own family as our daughter and son were born.
We served the LORD, ministering to children for about 16 years and the LORD placed us in a quiet season for a couple of years and then re-directed me into the ministry of women. I served in our church as deaconess and Bible Study leader and mentor. During this time, I returned to the work force and my desire to serve women continued with the Daily Devotional.
Now just a few years later, He has brought me into a new season of serving His people again. I look forward to what the LORD has to teach me and I will faithfully share those things with you. God is not through of any of us and there is no limit to who His Word can touch. I encourage you to share His Word with everyone you meet. You will be blessed as your own ministry begins to unfold. And feel free to write responses to the devotionals; it’s when we gather together that we edify one another. Let it be so as we gather each day.
May the Lord always be glorified through our communication!
