Tips for celebrating moms of all kinds on their special dayWritten by Matthea Schumpelt
Are you still trying to figure out something to do this Mother’s Day that you haven’t done before? After a while, new ideas can be harder to come by.
Why not spend this Mother’s Day showing Mom your love and showing love for other people’s mothers – namely, friends or church members who are single moms or older moms whose children have grown up and moved away?
Throughout the Bible, God tells us to love and serve people who are often overlooked. And it’s no mystery why: single parenting, for example, comes with an abundance of challenges. This Mother’s Day, why not share the joy of motherhood with moms who are lonely or going it alone?
Celebrating other moms on Mother’s Day doesn’t mean Mom should get overlooked. Dad and the kids can still lavish her with tokens of their appreciation – but aren’t celebrations even more fun when there are more people to be blessed?
