Sunday to Monday | Why Did God Make Mothers?

Mother's Day yesterday was a celebration of moms, grandmas, aunts, daughters, cousins, friends, teachers, mentors, coaches ~ all the ways God's love is shared with us via the women around us.  Our special guest, Angie Jumper, Director of the Boys & Girls Club in Booneville, MS, shared about a mother's love and the gift of "mothering" whether as a biological mom or one following God's call.   1 Corinthians 13:4-7 was lifted up.

School-aged children were asked about mothers, their responses are below.  How would YOU answer each of these questions?

Why did God make mothers?
1. She's the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.

What's the difference between moms and dads?
1. Moms work at work and work athome, & dads just go to work at work.
2. Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them.
3. Dads are taller & stronger, but moms have all the real power 'cause that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friend's.

What does your Mom do in her spare time?

1. Mothers don't do spare time.
