Being a Christian Mother

This is Rhonda's Bible study notebook on Being a Christian Mother.

About me...
I am 37 years old and am married with 3 children ages 4, 3 and 1. I am going to begin Homeschooling this year. I have been a Christian since 2000 and attend a wonderful church. I was born in Plattsburgh, NY but raised in Rock Hill, SC. I left SC for a few years after joining the Army and then living in Hampton, GA for a few years. Now my husband and I rent a home in Rock Hill.

Scripture: Proverbs 22:6


My thoughts...
I am having a hard time with "training" my children. I don't want to be so authoritative that my children are afraid of me but I feel that I'm too lenient because I find that I repeat myself constantly. I want to be a Godly mother for my children. I feel like I'm not doing enough even though at night when I go to bed I am completely exhausted.

Questions it brought to my mind...
How can I truly "train" my children? How can I feel like I'm doing the right things for my children?

My closing prayer...
Dear God, please give me the wisdom to be the mother that you chose me to be. I can't do it alone! Help me to enjoy my children more instead of feeling sometimes that they are burdens. I am ashamed to say that but I am lacking in patience with them also. Please give me the strength that I need each new day. In Jesus' Holy Name I pray....AMEN!

Teaching Children to Obey.....
by: Anonymous

I am a 71 yr. old Mother/Grandmother/Great-Grand mother. I used the "naughty chair" whenever my children or grandchildren would act up. Use only that one chair when you place the child there. Tell them why they are being placed there. Give them 5 minutes to begin with, making it more if they continue to disobey. Once they have sit there 5 minutes tell them why they were placed there, tell them to tell you they are sorry, once they have done that, give them a big hug and tell them you love them. God bless. Love & Prayers, B
