Mother’s Day is coming fast! And let me say, my mom, is the best. I’m sure yours is too.
Mother’s Day is a great day to get to honor these women who have loved and cared for us, teaching us to obey Jesus and love others. But there’s another group of women we can also honor on this day: the spiritual mothers in our lives.
Women who have mentored us.
Women who have poured their lives into us.
Women who have encouraged us towards Jesus even though we aren’t biologically theirs.
Who are these women in your life?
Here are a few fresh ideas on how you can honor them as well on this upcoming Mother’s Day.
Drop off a single flower at their home with a note attached saying “Thanks for impacting my life!”
Sit down and handwrite a letter listing out the top 10 ways she has impacted you over the years.
Call her and tell her how much you appreciate her. Make it personal and specific by recounting at least one thing she has said or done that changed how you live your life to better represent Jesus as a result of her influence.
Have a social media account? Tag her in a post honoring her for her input in your life.
Personalize a gift with a Scripture she has taught you or challenged you with that was impactful. Put the verse on a coffee cup, journal, photo frame, etc. as a reminder of her influence.
Scripture commands us in Romans to give honor to whom honor is due (Romans 13:7). Find a way to say thank you and make it count for these amazing women who have invested in your life. Make your list today of who you will honor this Mother’s Day… alongside your mom … who I’m sure is close to as excellent as mine is.
