Why Worldly Wisdom Doesn’t Work for Godly Marriages
Club 31 Women | Christian Mom Blog
by Christin Slade
5d ago
Godly marriages are set apart for the glory of God. They have specific standards laid out in Scripture to produce fruit. We aren’t meant to do things the way culture does. God has specifically given us ways to live, not only as a married couple but also as followers of Christ. It’s not about a set of rules but a holy standard of living that we learn to desire as we grow in our relationship with God. These standards are often quite different from those of the world’s. Some are so different that they feel upside-down to our current culture. Do not be deceived. Just because you are Christian, do ..read more

From Being a Self-Saboteur to a Sentinel
Club 31 Women | Christian Mom Blog
by Kelly Tarr
1w ago
We can be our own worst enemies. We are often the saboteur of our own lives and it ends up affecting the ones we love, too. So often, we are self-saboteurs. We want peace in our homes but snap at everyone around us. We desire close friendship but are easily offended. We want our husbands to love us, but we walk around with a contemptuous spirit. Our mouths speak out of the abundance of the heart (Luke 6:45), as does our body language. Yet we often lack awareness of what our hearts are overflowing with until it comes tumbling out. These situations serve as opportunities to receive the Lord’s c ..read more

How You Can Build A Strong Friendship in Your Marriage
Club 31 Women | Christian Mom Blog
by Lisa
2w ago
Have you considered the possibility of having a strong friendship in your marriage? It starts with the little things you choose each day. I wish I could take the credit and say it was intentional. That we knew full well what we’d be building when we started our lovely morning tradition. But in all honesty, it was probably as much due to a love for coffee as it was a love for each other—at least in the beginning. Even before our wedding day, on most mornings Matt and I would meet over at Java Bay Café across the street from his apartment to enjoy a strong cup of Pacific Northwest coffee. There ..read more

How To Flourish When Friendships Fail
Club 31 Women | Christian Mom Blog
by Guest Contributor
3w ago
Friendships come and go and it can be hard to cope with those losses. How can we be satisfied through our deepest aches? We all need the kind of friends who welcome us whole. The kind of friends who make space for all of who we are—every intricate insecurity and celebrated characteristic. It’s as if we are going about our way, all through life, waiting for friends to find us—really find us. To see us and to say all the things we ever needed to hear. Like, we are wanted for who we are and wanted for how we are. I found friends like this in the first half of my life, and then I lost them just s ..read more

10 Things You Need To Know Before You Get Married
Club 31 Women | Christian Mom Blog
by Susan Alexander Yates
1M ago
Getting married is a huge decision. There are some things you should know before you get married and commit your life to another. This summer I have several young friends getting married.  Mostly millennials, these young women have been asking me for advice. I must seem terribly old to them, but it almost feels like yesterday when I, too, was walking down the aisle. I had no idea what was ahead and how much I would learn. As we approach our 55th anniversary this coming summer, I guess I have learned a few things—things I wish somebody had told me before I got married.  10 Things to ..read more

Observing Lent: A Season of Waiting and Worship
Club 31 Women | Christian Mom Blog
by Barbara Rainey
1M ago
Lent can be a special time if you are intentional about observing it as a season of waiting and worship. Is waiting something you enjoy and eagerly look forward to?  Not me! When I think of waiting, I think of sitting in a doctor’s office waiting room. Or sitting in my car on the freeway, with traffic stopped dead and no exit nearby.  Or standing in line at the Department of Motor Vehicles for what seems like hours. Waiting is not my favorite, but it does remind me I’m not in control. God’s ways are higher than mine, He knows circumstances I can’t see, and even waitin ..read more

Design Your Kitchen for Family Connection
Club 31 Women | Christian Mom Blog

Having a family connection regularly is so pinnacle to the growth and nurturing of our children and teens. Learn how to make space in your kitchen work in your favor! As a mom, I fondly recollect silly childhood stories and long to forge new ones with my growing boys. I once heard a parenting expert say that the most effective method to encourage a teenager to talk is to engage them when they don’t have to make eye contact—aka, in the car. This expert reasoned that when the young person is doing something else, the pressure subsides and sharing seems more approachable. As I have attempted thi ..read more
