Ultimate MOM Day was a blast! Hope every single one of you moms had a great time on your day and felt honored and loved at NLC.

Week Two of MODERN FAMILY focused on moms as well.

As a reminder, the big idea for this series is: Great families don't happen by luck; they are built on purpose.

We looked at Proverbs 31:28-31, which is part of a mom's words of wisdom to her son King Lemuel.

The description of the "Proverbs 31 woman" is pretty daunting. It's a high bar. But what's interesting about the passage is that the people being called to action are children and husbands, not moms and women!

Children (of any age) get to bless and encourage their moms, meaning the best way to honor their moms is to place God at the very center of their lives.

Husbands get to praise and encourage their wives, meaning their goal should be to build up and encourage, not criticize and discourage.

Practical next steps:
-Take an inventory this week of how much of your speech is praise and how much is criticism.
-Find a single mom you know and do a practical act of service for her.
-Volunteer in Kid City or Studio 45! Some of the most excited volunteers at NLC are those in the high energy, rapidly growing children's ministry.
