Right at Home Moms – Summer 2018

10.16.18 | Preschool | by Terri Greer

    Our summer semester, June 20 – August 15, brought 18 moms studying Motivate Your Child. “Internal motivation comes from the heart, but just because something comes from the heart doesn’t make it good. That’s why God designed two things to keep the heart going in the right direction: the conscience and the Holy Spirit,” says authors Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN BSN.

    Each Wednesday morning, the group learned specific tools and ideas to help their children build internal motivation to do what is right. Children, ages 3 years-5th grade, who attended Kingdom Care while their moms participated in the group study, had a unique curriculum of their own, Hero Training Camp. This support material used the life of David to teach kids that God has provided them with the standard equipment to be heroes in training now. Fun crafts, energizing games, science experiments and role plays helped to teach the children to be internally motivated. The summer semester also allowed time for play dates, a Mom’s Night Out, and an end of the semester pool party.

    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!
