LETTERS FROM JONI LAMB – MAY 2021
The Impact of a Godly Mother
Every great home starts with a strong foundation. My mother taught me that. Not just by her words, but by her actions. She always lived so unselfishly. No matter if it was cooking, cleaning, or washing clothes, she did it all every day with love, dedication, and selflessness. I could feel it in her hugs and in the way that she loved all of us. But most importantly, it was in the way she loved the Lord. Even to this day, she continues to teach me what it looks like to be a strong woman of faith.
That legacy is what I have tried to carry into my relationship with my children. Each day, I have strived to live what I believe in front of them. To show them that God’s way is the best way, and if you surrender to His Will, God will take you to places you never even dreamed possible.
It’s not always been an easy journey, but what an adventure it has been! To see the young man and women they’ve become and the spouses they chose, it is such a great joy to know the fullness of the scripture, Proverbs 22:6, that says, “Train up a child in the way they should go; and when they’re older, they will not depart from it.”
As I look at my grandchildren and see how my daughters and daughter-in-love are continuing that legacy, the impact on these little ones is undeniable. So, to all you Godly mothers out there who are doing your best to sow faith, love, and character into your sons and daughters, and to the ones that are just starting that journey today, you are making a difference. It’s no small thing to shape a life, that’s why God made you stronger than you realize. So, from my family to yours, Happy Mother’s Day!
