Mom's Need Mentors

"the older women, likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things - that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed." Titus 2:3-5

I pray for a mentor.  That God will send a woman to guide me on my journey as a wife and homeschooling mom, homemaker, and most importantly a child of God.

A woman who has been where I am.  A woman I can learn from.

An encourager.

A teacher.

A woman who speaks wisdom.

I pray.

I also pray that through this journey God will train me to be a mentor.  That He will show me who He wants me to be through Him.

That I may be reverent in behavior, not practicing slander or gossip.  That I may be faithful, loving and full of patience.  That I may be an example in all these things so that younger women may see how God wants us to be. 

That I may admonish the young women.  To give encouragement through advice.

That I may love my husband and teach them to love their husband.  Not romantic love, but a commitment to him and his welfare.

That I may love my children and teach them to love their children.  That I teach my children good character, kindness, faithfulness, obedience, and most importantly a love for their Heavenly Father. 

That I may be a good homemaker and teach them to be good homemakers.  Teach them the importance that the Bible places on women being homemakers.

That I may be obedient to my own husband and teach them to be obedient to their own husbands.  Today women are side by side in many different areas of life with men who are not their husbands.  There are many temptations out there to listen to another man.  We must remember to only be obedient to our own husbands.  We need to protect that relationship.

That my actions may glorify the Lord, build His kingdom, and strengthen the family.

I want to be ready when He is ready to use me.
