The Power of Mother: How moms can mentor!
Likewise, older women are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or enslaved people to much wine. They are to teach what is good. Titus 2:3
As a mom, you know just how important it is to have someone to look up to, someone who needs your to help them navigate these waters we call motherhood. It’s important to have mentors, especially as a mom, because many different things go through a mother’s head daily. One of a mother’s priorities is to be a role model for her children. As mothers, we need to become the virtues of a noblewoman.
We know just what it’s like. We’ve been there, done that. We know the challenges and the triumphs of being a mom. Every mentor can relate to our mentees on a whole new level to help mentees succeed. We want to help them grow into the amazing mom we know they can be. However, we should always make ourselves available. We should always be there for our mentees, children, and community, whether it’s an emergency or just a quick chat. And happy to help.
Titus 2:4-5 “In this way, they can train the young women to love their husbands and children, be self-controlled, pure, managers of their households, kind, and submissive to their husbands so that the word of God will not be discredited.”
Proverbs 31:10-31 highlights the many admirable qualities of a good wife and mother. Among these are hard work, generosity, wisdom, and kindness. As mothers, we have an opportunity to model these virtues for our children. We can also show them how to be strong women of character by our example. As we go about our day-to-day lives, we should remember that there is always someone watching us who is looking for a mentor and role model, as they might be young mothers or mothers to be. So let’s strive to be the best women we can be and set an example for others to follow.
Moms can be great mentors for their children and other children, too. They can help teach life skills, academic skills, and social skills. Moms can also help children learn about themselves and the world around them. As a mother, know that there is always someone watching you who is looking for a mentor and role model as they might be. You have the ability to change a life for the better and show them what it means to be strong and fearless. Your actions speak louder than any words could, and you have the ability to make them feel loved and special. Proverbs 31:30 says, “Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”
Oh Lord, help me be passionate about motherhood and share godly wisdom with my children, mentees, and community that look up to me for guidance in Jesus’ name. Amen.
