Bible Readings and Reflections for Mothers

Mom and son playing

By Kristin Armstrong

Becoming a mother was one of those precise moments in life that leave us permanently altered, our hearts and fates sealed. My children have often been the catalyst for my own spiritual and personal growth. I have discovered more about myself and my God in the pursuit of discovering my children. There are moments when I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that God has used me to help hone my children's characters, and there are moments of even greater clarity when I know that God is using them to hone mine. Here are ten Scripture verses and reflections on the grace-filled adventure of motherhood.

Kristin Armstrong is the author of four other books including Work in Progress: An Unfinished Woman's Guide to Grace,Happily Ever After: Walking with Peace and Courage Through a Year of Divorce, Strength for the Climb, and a children's book called Lance Armstrong: The Race of His Life. A runner who has completed six marathons, she's a contributing editor for Runner's World magazine, where she also writes a blog called Mile Markers. She and her three children live in Austin, Texas, and Santa Barbara, California.
