Motherhood: The Place of Responsibility—Raising Future Parents
The roles of a mother are nurturing, comforting, and teaching children within the family context.
She is responsible for homemaking, supports decision making and is the certified gatekeeper for meals, clothing and the atmosphere of the home. We turn houses into home. We turn groceries into meals. We turn smiles into love from the heart. By God’s design mothers are multi-faceted and wear many hats. Whether one is a working or stay at home, motherhood is a big responsibility. Our words and actions, our choices and desires strongly influence how the children grow and the fulfillment of God’s plan for their lives. Our prayers are very powerful. Some mothers are married, some are single moms, some are widows, some have had miscarriages or have lost a child. Motherhood is a noble calling entrusted to us by God. Motherhood shapes our lives in deeply transforming ways.
