4 Ways to Protect your Children from Becoming Victims of Racism

In light of the racial tension in the United States and the giant of fear weighing on the hearts of African-American mothers, it is important to reblog this post. Mothers, we have a role to play in the fight against racism. Since racism is learned, we need to teach our children to treat everyone with love and respect regardless of their race. Quit sowing seeds of hate and racial bias in your home. Let’s do a heart-check and ask God to rid us of pride and the sin of racism.

Two days ago, My dear sister, kim Petitt shared her personal experience as a mother raising a Black son in the 21st Century. Please read her short postHERE. We can’t trust our governments to protect our children. They are failing every child regardless of race. While some local churches are speaking up through the One Race Movement, others have chosen to be silent. Silence speaks louder than words in this case. To be quiet when people are killed for their skin color is to be a part of the problem, a facilitator. This has been going on since the days of Martin Luther King Jr. and I believe the silence of the church inspired this quote:

In the End, we will remember not the words ofourenemies, butthe silence of our friends.

Those who are silent ignorantly believe that they will not be affected. That’s a…

School closures due to COVID-19 has many families questioning the best way to educate their children. Even if schools open as usual this fall, some parents are trying to decide if they should send their children back to public or private school or take a completely different route and home-school. As they make such an…

Thoughts on Parenting 101

Many people think and say motherhood or parenthood does not come with a manual. We need to change that thought and statement. While reading Psalms 38 this morning, I was reminded that God in His wisdom has provided a manual for parenting. Psalm 38:1 states: LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline…

Child-ish Vs. Child-like 2

I have a bottle of activated charcoal in the cabinet because the little one still likes to explore with his mouth. I thought he would have outgrown this by now. I was wrong. When the little one is suddenly quiet, we know he is up to something he should not be doing. I bet other…

Jehovah is Our Source

As families face job and income loss this season, parents are concerned about the future of their children. Many worry about the daunting task of finding another job, losing their homes, feeding and clothing their children. This situation presents an opportunity for us to look to God as our source. For those living in capitalist…

Talking to Kids about the Pandemic: A Christian Mom’s Response

With many schools closed leaving parents to homeschool their kids, it's becoming a highly anxious situation for many parents (and their children too). On the surface, it may seem as if the pandemic isn’t affecting them, but deep in their hearts what they could be experiencing is fear or at the very least, uncertainty. How…

Friendly Reminder: Speak Life!

This post is another friendly reminder for us to speak life this season. Many are predicting financial crises and more casualties in the next weeks and months ahead. While this is logical, God’s children cannot live by sight and accept prophecies of woes and doom. As we speak life this season, we position ourselves to become channels of blessing to others.

Speak what you want to see in the days ahead.
Speak what you want to see in your home.
Speak what you want to see in your nation.
Speak life because your words are not worthless.

Our words put angels and demons to work. I only want to put angels to work and bring the works of demons to naught. We can do this together!

God bless you and thank you for reading. We win!

Christian Mommas

Matthew 12:36-37 (NIV)

But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken.For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.

Speak what you want to see in your child’s life.

Speak what you want to see in your spouse’s life.

Speaking life doesn’t mean you are living in denial, it means you are living by faith. It means you acknowledge that you are god, created in the image and likeness of the God who spoke the universe into existence. When you don’t speak life, you position yourself under the control of the universe instead of being in control of your world. Speaking life is kingdom lifestyle.

Thoughts on Parenting 101

I hope you all are staying connected emotionally and spiritually. These two Bible verses came to mind while writing my thoughts on parenting: 1 Peter 5:5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to…

Thoughts on Parenting 101

Generally speaking, success is not determined by what we know but the application of the life-changing information we receive. Access to information is not enough, it is what we do with the information that makes a difference. How long we have been doing life does not determine our success in life. One can be young…

Day 7: Angels in the Nursery

I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also. 2 Timothy 1:5 (NIV) In the field of Infant Mental Health, angels in the nursery are described as past childhood experiences, parenting choices and practices that strengthen…

Day 6: Are there Ghosts in the Nursery?

Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. Exodus 34:7 (KJV) The nursery can be described as the place of security for the child.…

Day 5: Made for Relationship

And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make Him an help meet for him. Genesis 2:18 (KJV) Contrary to popular belief, newborns do not simply smile because they are passing gas.  Some developmental theorists propose that the newborn’s smile is a mechanism for survival.  That is, the…

Day 3: Blessings of the Breasts

Day 3 of the 7-Day Devotional for new parents/mothers. Be Blessed! By the God of your father who will help you, by the Almighty who will bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that crouches beneath, blessings of the breasts and of the womb. Genesis 49:25 (ESV) The newborn must eat…

Day 2: You are Competent!

In case you missed Day 1 of the 7-Day Devotional for New Parents, you can check it out here. Stay blessed! I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13 (KJV) Feeling incompetent? You are not alone. It is not unusual for first-time parents to feel incompetent in their new role. The…

Black History Month: Celebrating Our Royal Identity

As we celebrate Black History Month in the United States, I would like to encourage African American parents to stand strong in faith and not bow to the spirit of fear. The evil spirit of racism is still at work, but we already have the victory over that which threatens our lives and our children.…

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. ~Proverbs 22:6 I was given more insight on this Bible verse few days ago in written words, so I thought to share it with you. "In the original Hebrew, training up a child is…

Teach Your Children About Black History Month

By grade school most children in the United States have heard of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. They are taught that he fought for peace and equality. This month during Black History Month, I encourage you to go beyond teaching your kids about Dr. King. For example, teach your child about Rosa Parks, a civil…

Thoughts on Parenting 101

To honor is to respect and hold in high esteem. In early childhood, children naturally honor their parents. They look to their parents for everything. As they grow up, they begin to see mommy and daddy's flaws. This may cause them to disrespect their parents thereby creating a strain in parent-child relationship. In parenting and…

Six Things Children Need to Know About Sex

My attention was brought to recent statistics on the impact of promiscuity on teenagers in the United kingdom. It would not be a surprise if this statistic exists in other nations. I was heartbroken for children affected. They really do not know what they are doing. I believe promiscuity, fornication, and every sexual sin are…

Thoughts on Parenting 101

When young children speak ill of people or dislike someone, could it be that their parents are partly responsible? When young children do not like Church people, could it be that their parents speak ill of Church folks at home? The answer to these questions is most likely 'yes'. We shape our children's worldview with…

Self-Care is Compulsory

Mothers naturally recognize the voice of their children and vice versa. We can differentiate our child's cry from other children's cry. It is just natural. Sadly, a crying mother may have difficulty hearing her child's cry. A child whose cry goes unheard for too long and too often will stop crying. Instead of crying out,…

Thoughts on Parenting 101

Arrogant people do not see the need to apologize. In fact, arrogance is usually subtle and it disguises itself in form of tradition. I was raised in a society where parents are always right and opinionated children are considered disrespectful. While a lot of children including myself learned to be obedient and follow the rules,…

The Stay at Home Mom Life:He is My Peace

Recently, I came across two heartbreaking stories in the news. The first was about a father who was facing a life sentence in prison, for causing permanent damage to his newborn. The father woke up in the middle of the night to sooth his crying baby, and got more frustrated as the baby continued crying. The older son was also in the room with them, and the father got even more agitated....

5 Ways to Love Yourself this Valentine and Everyday

As I write this, we are a few days away from Valentine's Day, the universal day of love. So naturally, I want to talk about love today. One of my favorite passages in the Bible is 1 Corinthians 13, or the "love passage" as I like to call it. I have read these verses too…
