100 Inspiring Moms

It was 1970—the beginnings of the women’s movement. As the city librarian, Mom was invited to speak at my school. Pounding her fist on the podium, she declared our rights as young girls. Cheers rose. I slid lower in my seat. Kids asked, “Is that your mom?” Yes, indeed. Exceedingly opinionated and motivated to make a difference in her world, she drove five hours a day for three years to attend college, juggling family time and her job. She died much too soon, but she left me her love and knowing that with courage and motivation, I could succeed.

My mom is a precious blessing in my life!  She is mom to 16 children.  She loves us unconditionally.  She is a survivor. She lost her dad, mom, and husband and was left to raise 10 children by herself.  With God's help, she did so for four years until she met and married my Dad.  They have been married for 40 years.  She is my hero, a true blessing from God!  Happy Mother's Day Mom!  I love you!

100 Inspiring Moms

I lost my mom to cancer when I was ten years old. Her faith in God is the first thing I remember when thinking of my childhood. This past Christmas I hauled a box of her things out in an effort to reconnect. I found an obituary stating that, in the last week of her life, she wrote Scripture and quotes including, “Yesterday He helped me, today He did the same. How long will this continue? Forever! Praise His name!” Thirty-six years later my mom still inspires me to have faith in the one God who promises eternal life.

Life Quote by Annie Dillard

Holiday Quote by Joel Osteen

When Christmas doesn't fit your expectations of what the perfect holiday should be, think about how Joseph and Mary probably didn't think that manger was the perfect place for their child to be born. But look at what a perfect Christmas that turned out to be.

Success Quote by John C. Maxwell

Decision-making takes care of goal-setting, but discipline also takes care of goal-getting. Decisions and discipline can’t be separated; one is worthless without the other.

Change Quote by Bil Cornelius

Real change is an inside job.  It starts with our attitude, our efforts, and our energy.  It takes intention and action on a daily basis.   

Positive Quote by Oliver Stone

I might as well be myself.  Everyone else is taken.
