Women meeting together with women creates a potent concoction. That’s why Paul passed the charge to disciple young moms and wives on to older women in Titus 2.
“Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderersor slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, andsubmissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled” (Titus 2:3-5).
For the modern momma, generational mentoring doesn’t just happen. Taping in to the power of other moms requires intention. The Church has the unique ability to fill in the gaps caused by geography and scheduling and to equip moms to swim upstream by lovingly raising their children for Christ.
You (yes, you!) can give teeth to Titus 2 by reaching out to the moms in your church.
That might look like a small group of women who meet once a month for coffee. It might look like a big group of women who attend meetings that are highly programmed. Maybe it means implementing the plans of a larger organization such as MOPS or Moms In Touch. Maybe it’s a Sunday school class focused on studying God’s Truth for moms. The shape and size of your group doesn’t matter, but it does matter that your church is intentional about being ambassadors for Christ to the moms in your community.
You can get more ideas about how to launch your own mom group in the book, “Beyond Bath Time” and read about what’s worked for other moms on our blog. Contact us for great deals on resources for groups.
You need other moms and other moms need you. You can fulfill God’s calling to train other women to love their husbands and children well using God’s Word as your curriculum.
We’d love to hear about it! Be sure to leave us a comment on the blog about your mom group and let us know how we can help you widen your view of your role as mom and help others do the same.
