The Best Mother’s Day Gift

Mother's Day

If you’re a mom, you might wonder why every day can’t be Mother’s Day. Being a parent is tough work, no matter what that looks like for you. Unfortunately, there is only one day allotted on the calendar to celebrate moms, but we have to be a mom those other 364 days, too.

Have you ever considered motherhood as a missions field? It’s messy, filled with long days and daunting tasks. There are some really high points, like the first time you hold your newborn in your arms, and there are some really low points, like when your teenager argues with you for the 900th time.

As moms, we need to remind ourselves that we are on a missions field everywhere we go, modeling Christ for those little people who call us Mom.

This year, I will celebrate my very first Mother’s Day, so I am no expert. My son is almost one, and I know I have so much to learn as he grows up. It’s helpful knowing that I have a sacred job, a job that I do not take for granted.

Of my many jobs as a mom, the most important is to model Christ for my son and always point him to Christ.

“I do believe that every day God hears the cries and prayers of [people] in our community seeking to overcome the obstacles caused by poverty.”

These words spoken by Rebekah Sumrall reflect the heart of Begin Anew, a Christian Women’s Job Corps site impacting Middle Tennessee. Sumrall serves as executive director for Begin Anew. Through this program, men and women are taught job and life skills that empower them to rise up out of poverty and find hope for their futures.
