We begin week six of our journey reading Sue Detweiler’s book, 9 Traits of a Life Giving Mom: Replacing My Worst with God’s Best.  

Week Six

Read  Chapter Six – Replacing My Negativity with God’s Kindness

Trait:  Kindness

“Kindness is love in motion.”

I love that simple definition for Kindness.  How I wish I could remember that all the time.  I think I will write it on sticky notes and post it in key places so I can see it, read it and embed it in my heart.

I find that I get busy and can easily get short with my kids and my husband.  I tend to get stressed and anxious, which heightens my inability to actively share kind words and actions.  UGH!  I hate to remember all the times I have fallen short.

Feel free to begin the questions in the Study Guide, which can be found in the back of your book, Lesson 6.  Have a journal you can write down your answers and reflections to the questions – be honest and spend some time here ladies.  Have you taken the time during the study to thoroughly visit each trait and actively allow God to work?

I will be back tomorrow with a quick post on my thoughts about Chapter Six and will introduce some questions through out the week on the private Facebook page.  

If you haven’t printed out the prayers that are covered in the chapters click HERE on Sue’s website.  Here is this week’s trait of Kindness – it’s a good one!

We begin week five of our journey reading Sue Detweiler’s book, 9 Traits of a Life Giving Mom: Replacing My Worst with God’s Best.   

Week Five

Read  Chapter Five – Replacing My Frustration with God’s Patience

Trait 1:  Patience

This one is always a tough one for moms, I am not sure there is ONE mom out there that feels they are patient and have this one down!!  If you do, please tell!!

As I contemplate my areas of growth in how I can become a more Life-Giving Mom, this is certainly at the top.  I often lose my temper, feel frustrated and hopeless.  It is tough.  I know this topic will provide a lot of discussion and sharing this week as we learn and grow from each other.

I will be back tomorrow with a quick post on my thoughts about Chapter Five and will introduce some questions through out the week on the private Facebook page.
