Local "Mom Group" - Audra's Pick
I'm not sure what it's called where you live. Here we call it iMom, some places call it MOPS. The "Moms Group" in your local church could go by a number of different names. Whatever the name, in my opinion, this is the place to be if you are a mother! 1. You can find friends in the same stages of life that you're in. Who couldn't use another friend or two to do life with! 2. You get a little "me time" away from the little ones which only makes you a better mommy! 3. These ladies are there to encourage and support you in your parenting as well as your faith!
My encouragement to you is to find the "Mom Group" in a local Bible believing church and join in!
Missional Motherhood - Laura's pick
I love this blog because it's a combination of mother's of all ages and all with different stories and experiences. Their tagline is "raise them up to send them out," and as hard as that is to even think about, that's exactly what we are called to do. Whatever season of life you are in, Missional Motherhood will speak to you and point you to scripture to help you press on!
Parenting by Paul David Tripp - Rebecca's Pick
Hands down this is the best parenting resource that I have ever come across! My only wish is that it had been written 14 years ago when I became a parent! In this life-giving book, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God's plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God - grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents. Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children's hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy.
Sally Clarkson - Tammy's pick
Sally Clarkson is one of those women you wished lived in your hometown so you could sit on her porch, drink hot tea, and discuss any topic concerning motherhood. But since I don't live in her beautiful state, I've settled for the next best thing, her blog and her books. Her writing is warm and inviting, drawing the reader in to feel as if she's, well, sitting on her front porch with a hot cup of tea and discussing any topic concerning motherhood.
Biblical Woman - Spring's pick
BiblicalWoman.com whose slogan says, “His Wisdom for Her world” is a place that I know I can go to get wisdom from Godly women who have God and Scripture at the forefront of their lives. It is a place that I know I can trust their heart and their words to be words that align with God’s words. Though the site is not only about mothering, you can do a quick search and find articles regarding all sorts of topics for mothers with children in all ages and stages written by top theologians to just every day mothers on the front lines of parenting. It’s real, it’s relatable, it’s encouraging and it’s biblical.
