What words come to mind when you think of moms? There are so many to choose from. How about protector. I know that word can easily be associated with a father figure, but the mom is there at a moments notice to watch over and protect her little ones. How about comforter. When children get hurt, who do they call for? Mom. It’s how God hard-wired us. When we experience pain, hurt, or sorry, we want mom’s comfort. How about encourager. I don’t think anyone on the earth can encourage a person like their mom. The words of affirmation that come from a mom can be so life-giving. How about sacrifice. This is a big one. From the pregnancy stage forward, a mother will sacrifice her time, her energy, her desires, all for her children. And she does this with a willing heart and a smile on her face. How about strength. Any woman who gives birth to a child can automatically have the word strength ascribed to her! But not only through child-birth, but also through the sleepless nights, and the balancing of all life throws her way. A mother is strong.
This Mother’s Day, let’s honor our moms. Let’s raise the bar and show them how much we care and cherish them in our lives. And let’s be sensitive to women with no biological children of their own, who choose to use their time and gifts to serve as a mother to younger women. They, too, should be honored. So how do you plan on honoring the mother’s in your congregation? Flowers, notes, special recognition are all wonderful ideas. Another idea is to let them know how we feel by showing them on of these new mini movies from Journey Box Media, Centerline New Media, and Blue Ridge Community Church. These mini movies will have you laughing, feeling all warm inside, and reminded of how important our moms are in our lives. They are perfect choices to use in your service this Mother’s Day.

This mini movie will remind you just how important mothers are in our lives. It will take us on a journey of recognizing how important a mother’s life is to a young child. It is an excellent choice to show the value and power of a mother’s life.
I hope you enjoy these mini movies and can find a way to show them in your services on Mother’s Day. Remember, our mother’s are protectors, comforters, encouragers, and those who sacrifice their needs for the sake of their child. Let’s honor and recognize them this Mother’s Day.
