With today being Mother’s Day, I began to think about the inspiring mothers in the Bible. There are so many to choose from, and they are each made great for their own reasons. Mothers in the Bible can inspire us on how to be better women, better wives, better mothers, and just better people in general. Here are 5 mothers in the Bible who can inspire us today and every day.

  1. Moses’s mother. Can you imagine having the strength and trust to put your baby in a basket and send him down a river to save his life? When Moses was born, the Pharaoh had ordered all of the baby boys to be killed. So, to rescue him from certain death, his mother placed him in a basket and sent him down the Nile river. She had faith that the Lord would protect Moses and had great plans for him. What this mother taught me is that we can’t let fear keep us from acting, because we could be keeping ourselves from big blessings if we don’t step out in faith.
  2. Mary, Jesus’s mother. She might be the most famous mother in the Bible. She was about 14 years-old when she became a mom. When I was 14, I was nowhere near ready to take on the role of “mother”! We can imagine she was feeling some fear and anxiety over the pressure of becoming the mother of Jesus. Then, years later, she had to watch him be sacrificed on a cross for our sins. She stood near his cross and was strong enough to be there for him during his darkest hour. What sacrificial love.
  3. Leah, the mother who was her husband’s second choice. As I was reading through Genesis recently, I came across this story that I have heard many times growing up but it just now resonated with me. Jacob had two wives, who happened to be sisters. They were Leah and Rachel. He was tricked into marrying Leah when he really wanted to marry Rachel. Rachel could not have children, but Leah could. Leah had son after son, and her husband still preferred her sister over her. She continued to praise the Lord even in her anguish. She praised Him for her children. Can you imagine the agony of watching your husband love your sister more than you, even though you have given him many beautiful children and your heart? She praised the Lord even in her pain.
  4. Sarah, who had to wait and wait. Sarah waited almost her entire lifetime to have a baby. God had promised she and her husband, Abraham, a child, but she was very old and didn’t think it would happen. She was 90 years old! But, the Lord told Abraham “Is anything too hard for the LORD? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.” Genesis 18:14. What a great reminder that there is nothing too difficult for our God. If you are in a season of waiting for something, just remember Sarah. She waited, and waited, and trusted that the Lord would fulfill his promise to her.

I hope these mothers inspired you in some way, big or small. Happy Mother’s Day to all of the wonderful mothers out there! Give your momma a hug and tell her how much you love and appreciate her today.

3 Unique Ways to Spend Mother’s Day

I feel like Mother’s Day is one of those holidays that always sneaks up on me so fast!  Coming up with the perfect gift and day to plan out isn’t easy, but I always get it done in time to surprise my mom with a great day.  I wanted to think out of the box this year, so I came up with a few unique ways to spend Mother’s Day!

  • Buy supplies at the store and plant some flowers together!Chelsea Crockett - DIY Flower Pots  You can even buy pots to decorate with paints, stencils, and other things to customize them.  You and your mom can go to the store together and pick out which seeds you want to plant, too.  Make sure you remember to give it lots of water and sunlight!
  • Take a “staycation.”  This is when you go to a nearby big city (or the city you live in if you’re not close to a bigger one) and create a whole day filled with plans that you and your mom can do together!  This could be anything from going to eat somewhere you’ve always wanted to and exploring different spots around town.  Living near St. Louis, it’s always fun to plan a relaxing day around the city!
  • Now this idea is a little outside the box but perfect for a bigger group of people.  Something called Escape the Room is so, so fun for a group of about 10 or so people.  Grab your mom, aunt, grandma, etc. and work together to make it out in time!  They’re getting more and more popular so look for one in your city! 

What are you doing this year for Mother’s Day?  Let me know below!

Mother’s Day is the perfect day to show your mom how much she truly means to you.  Although we should thank her for all she does for us every day, Mother’s Day is a great excuse to go above and beyond and get her something special!  LUSH Cosmetics has the ideal Mother’s Day gift collection that you can choose from!

  • A Yellow or Pink “MOM” Bath Bomb ($7.95). Chelsea Crockett - LUSH Bath Bomb This is my favorite product from the Mother’s Day collection.  It’s the most appropriate for the occasion! 🙂 And your mom will love a fizzling bath bomb!
  • “Your Mother Should Know” Bubble Bar ($12.95).  Instead of a bath bomb, this bubble bar creates a bath full of grapefruit and rosewood scented bubbles!  And unlike a bath bomb, you can get a few uses out of it if you use it wisely. 
  • “Ups-A-Daisy” Bath Bomb ($7.95).  This bath bomb is in the shape of a flower and creates bright, technicolor swirls throughout your bath.  It has scents of orange and rosewood to give you a relaxing, spring aroma.
  • “Yummy Mummy” Shower Cream ($9.95-$29.95).  Depending on the size of the bottle, this shower cream can range anywhere between about $10 to $30.  It leaves your skin feeling smooth and smelling sweet!
  • “Happy Mother’s Day” Gift Basket ($87.95).  If you want to go above and beyond, you can purchase a full gift basket filled with a variety of different Mother’s Day products.  It may be pricey, but you definitely get your money’s worth!
