Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,

But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.

                                                --Proverbs 31:30


A few years ago, I had the opportunity to interview a fine lady in our church who is an author. Jane Jarrell is the author of many books, but one that is particularly good on motherhood is titled, Mom Matters. When I was interviewing her, I came across this:


25 Things Mom’s Need Most:

A sanity check                                      More energy                               

To know that I am normal                       A break

To know that I am a good mother             A nap

Acceptance                                          Adult conversation

Encouragement                                     A best friend

Support                                               Someone to understand how I feel

Time                                                   A housekeeper

Time with my husband                            A secretary

Time off                                               A nanny

Time alone                                           A dishwasher that loads itself and vacuum

Time with God                                       that cleans by remote control

Patience                                              A vacation

Friends                                                To know that being a mother is important


A mother’s legacy! There is great significance and importance of being a mom in this generation. When God created the first man, Adam, and placed him in the garden, He then created out of Adam’s side a woman. She burst forth and under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, God gave Adam the responsibility of naming this beautiful creature. Adam named the woman Eve, or Eva, which means mother.


Interesting, isn’t it? He didn’t name her wife, but instead he named her mother of all of the living. “Mother” has been called the sweetest name this side of heaven. As we discover the importance of mothers this week moving closer to this day of celebration, let us first begin by realizing the great worth of this responsibility. Start by praying for Christian mothers everywhere, that they would leave a legacy of faith and follow the wisdom and guidance of God’s Holy Word.
