My Ministry





"The season of young children is a time to refrain. Refrain from most outside activities, even some church activities. Now is a time to be faithful in discipline...it's the spring time of mothering. Redeem the time, don't waste it." Sono Harris







”But even as Jesus took three years off from the work of the universe in order to pass his ministry on to his disciples, to live with them, eat with them, love them, instruct them, so as mothers, if we want the same kind of life-changing impact on our children, it will require the sacrifice of our time, our commitments, and it will be inconvenient and life-consuming. But leaving godly disciples is the greatest work we will ever achieve.



"We can feel that we are truly ministering when the Lord uses us to communicate a word of wisdom to someone,or He provides an opportunity to share the gospel with our neighbor. That seems like real ministry. And that is real ministry to be sure! But no more so than when we are wiping runny noses or cleaning the bathroom.That is because we have a very narrow view of true spirituality...The Lord wants to help us see the significance of ministry at home." Carolyn Mahaney
"Be a light in the midst of a society that does not embrace children. Do not be intimidated. Show your love for your children as you speak sweetly to them and are patient with them. If God has blessed you with a number of children, be proud to display your "blessings" from the Lord. You reveal to the world what God is like for He loves children. Jesus did not reject children. He welcomed the children to come to Him..." Nancy Campbell

  1. Jessica,

    Thank you for your encouraging words this morning. I needed a little lift. My two year old is recovering from the flu and it feels like she's been nursing non-stop for the past week. Although my oldest is sixteen and I have a total of 6 children, I needed to be reminded that this time is so important. And that there is nothing better that I could be doing with my time than mothering my children.

    Have a beautiful day!
