Salt Challenge: Mother

Hello it's my turn today the challenge today on the Salt blog so I've just pasted my copy here:

A friend from church and I will be starting a program in the Fall for the little girls (kindergarten & up) at our church. We have several elementary school age girls in our church, and it's our desire to spend time teaching them from Prov 31, different aspects of being godly girls and women someday. In preparation for this, I have begun reading books and search for resources for not only the group, but for the mothers of these girls.

I was reading an excellent book this week the author talks about motherly love and one of the best examples of it in Bible, Hannah. We all know the story well I'm sure. As a mother I cannot imagine giving up my son, my firstborn son, to live far away from me the care of priests at the temple. But the author pointed out that the very next verse after Hannah takes Samuel to the temple and gives him over to Eli is I Samuel 2:1: "And Hannah prayed and said, 'My heart rejoices in the Lord.'" After doing what was probably the most difficult thing she could have, she praised God! Hannah knew, as we should, that our children belong first to God - He loves them more than even we do and He has given them to us for a short time to raise for His glory!

I thought of the verses in Deuteronomy 6:6-7: "And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up." As the mother of 5 small children, my greatest desire isn't that they be "happy", as you hear so often, but that my children love the Lord with all their hearts and live to serve Him always!

My ATC may not scream "mother" to you, but I sort of went with the teaching theme from the verse.  The apple and ruler are from 3 Step School Days from Kitchen Sink Stamps.  Please take a moment to view all of the beautiful creations from the team today on the Salt Blog and if you get chance we'd love to have you create along with us! Be sure to leave a link.


  1. Darling little ATC! I love the teaching theme, it's perfect! And a perfect topic...

  2. Such a thoughtful challenge, Julie and love your ATC for this - that apple looks so shiny and real x

  3. I admire your dedication to the young girls in your church. I wish we had something like that at ours. While we have many other classes this one seems to be very specific.

  4. I think this is a great take on the dare - and a wonderful ministry that you are undertaking too
