Mother’s Day is a wonderful time to remember those who have loved us and raised us to love others. I’m blessed to have a legacy of strong women who have loved God and loved others…and taught us to do the same. I pray I am passing that down to my own children as well.

Paul said of the women who raised Timothy,

I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also. 2 Timothy 1:5

I also know that not everyone has the blessing of a faith generations. The good news is Paul’s recognition of the sincere faith living in Timothy. Since our faith is not solely determined by those who’ve gone before us, your sincere faith can change the future of the generations after you. 

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers who are continuing to influence those they love!
