We started the blog to create a community of men that desired to pursue an Ephesians 5 marriage. Supporting and loving our wives in one of God’s greatest calling is a wonderful gift that we’ve received. We asked our community to share their feelings about their wives’ motherhood.
Happy Mother’s Day….
“In today’s world, a passive man is celebrated. Just watch any sitcom or television show on TV and you will see it. However, God has charged men to be leaders, which in its definition rejects passive behavior. This generational sin, starting with Adam, continues through to today, and I find myself struggling with passivity every day.
I must take a moment to that God for the amazing woman that he has provided me. She provides the support and the encouragement that I need when she begins to sense that I might be letting down my guard and not handling the things that need to be taken care of. My wife is a great mother to my kids, and I believe that God had a purpose bringing us together, even though we were born in different parts of the world. Just as God made Eve to help Adam, I firmly believe that God brought my wife to me as a helper and one to lift me to be the man that God has planned.”
“It would be a mistake to simply view my wife as a mother. Children benefit from the love and effort of a mother, but she is more than a mother. Her passion for our children comes from a place deep inside her soul. Her love for our children spills out of her and is absolutely, irresistibly contagious. She inspires me to be a better father…to step up my game. God asks men to be the leaders of their families. I’ve been blessed to have been encouraged in this role by the love that she shows our children. I am a better man as a result of the mother she continues to be.”
“Nothing makes me happier than seeing the genuine love and bond she shares with our son.”
“She is such a caring, compassionate, patient mother and wife. God truly picked the perfect complement to me when choosing who would parent our children.
I love watching her care for our children, she is always thinking about their needs, all the little things that no one else thinks of. It’s almost as though she knows exactly what they need before they do. A mother’s bond with her children is a miracle of which I can only thank God for.
I have been truly blessed to be given such an amazing woman to share life’s journey with and to partner raising a family. I could not imagine doing it any other way.”
“The biblical model of parenting is one where children are in submission to their parents. The parents are in submission to Christ primarily and to each other secondarily. The biblical model is under attack and is constantly undermined in the culture and in the media. In such an environment, how refreshing to have mothers who know what they believe and why they believe it and teach it to the children God has given them. This Mother’s Day, I am thankful for the role that mothers play and praying that God would raise mothers who will take their God given role seriously.”
Be Strong. Act Like Men.
