Right at Home Moms (Focus, Spring 2018)

05.28.18 | Preschool

    What’s it like to be married to me? That’s a dangerous question, but it was only one of many questions 15 women gathered to discuss in an incredible study during our spring semester of Right at Home Moms. As we searched scripture and read the book What’s It Like to Be Married to Me? by Linda Dillow, we had an honest conversation and chose to set the goal for a better marriage. 

    “I am so grateful for God’s presence this semester,” said Erin True, facilitator for this study. “When moms and wives begin to look in the mirror and ask spiritual questions, it begins a wonderful season of personal growth. The women this semester had opened up and been vulnerable in a beautiful way. The group was then able to meet this vulnerability and pain with prayers, encouragement, and love.” 

    Throughout the semester we gathered for play dates, a mom’s night out, freezer meal swaps, and a class on money-saving ideas and meal planning. 

    On March 25, our annual Bargain Sale and Market raised over $2,100. The monies help offset the cost of Kingdom Care and Bible study materials for this ministry. Throughout the Chapel and Fellowship Hall, 17 vendors participated in selling gently–used baby items, home décor, beauty products, vinyl applique, stationery, and much more. The next morning, our Sunday Bake Sale brought hungry tummies to purchase cookies, muffins, and other delicious desserts. Many thanks to Jill Tatum, who coordinates this large undertaking! 

    Right at Home Moms is a family ministry of UBC designed to support mothers of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers who are modifying their work schedule or leaving the workplace to stay home and raise their children. Our goal is to help new moms find practical Bible study, genuine encouragement, time to refresh their spirit, and a network of Godly friends in a similar phase of life. We believe that motherhood is the hardest but most fulfilling work you’ll ever find!
