5 Uplifting Bible Verses For Busy Mamas

Hi I’m Gem

I am a busy Christain wife & mama. I have been married for the last 15 years to my best friend. We have four wonderfully individual children together, 16, 14, and 4 (x2). 

We have lived in two different countries, traveled halfway around the world with our children, and back again. Experiencing some unique cultures, languages, and people. I found God along the way too. 

It’s now my mission to share that journey with you and help you in your journey with God, your family, and your kitchen too. 

By giving you the tools and resources to help you grow closer to the Lord, understand your family more, and develop your skills in the kitchen. 

Each of us has a god-given gift or talent that he created us with for His purpose.

And if this is your first time visiting Mama & The Word, put a heart in the comment box below so I can officially welcome you to the community.

It gives you the opportunity to process and understand your inner thoughts and emotions by writing them down on paper. This can have positive effects on your health and mood too.

Final Thoughts On May Journal Writing Prompts For Mama’s

I love springtime. It is a time for new beginnings, new life, and new growth. Spring always fills me with hope for the things to come.

For me, I enjoy seeing the lambs jumping in the fields and the golden heads of the daffodils as they spring from the ground and the birdsong seems to be louder than normal in the mornings somehow.

It is also a time for fun and family. The holidays give us time to rest, relax and spend time with our loved ones. We can begin to get busy enjoying the outdoors with walks on the beach or going into the woods.
