It’s that time of the year when I get to celebrate my Mom’s birthday! I hope you enjoy learning a little bit more about my lovely Mom in the Q/A below. You’ll hopefully get a glimpse of what a strong woman of God she is. Blessings!
I’ve interviewed Olympians, and local politicians, and even a few celebrities over the years. But this was the first time, that I can remember, that I’ve interviewed my Mom! It was long overdue! My Mom has had a major influence on my life and my faith journey. It’s only fitting that my Mom is the first person that I got to speak with for a new series that I’d like to do from time to time. So here goes:
5 Questions for …. my Mom
What is one of your favorite Bible verses?
“‘For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11). God says that He has good plans for us. We don’t have to doubt or fear Him. He doesn’t want to harm us. If something goes wrong, it’s not His doing. We can have faith in God and know that He loves us. He loves us so much that He sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins and give us the gift of eternal life. He’s our loving Father.
Who is one of your favorite people from the Bible (other than Jesus)?
I admire Moses. God spoke to Moses face to face. He was a good leader, a prophet, and obedient. He took time to be with the people and made time to be with God.
What is one of your favorite Christian books?
The Bible. It has everything that we need for our daily living. That’s where you can go at all times. It’s like medicine. You can find support and everything there. There is a Word for every situation. You don’t need to go to another book. You can read other books, but there’s nothing like the Bible.
What is some advice that you would give to other believers?
Obey, persevere, and give thanks to God at all times. Thank Him in the good and bad times. Don’t get sidetracked by following others. Follow Jesus. Persevere and you will be rewarded.
How would you describe God?
He’s All Powerful! He is our Provider. There is power in His Word. He spoke everything into existence and He created us! There is no one like our God! Nothing is impossible for Him!
