When a woman, especially a Nigerian woman, marches to the altar to tie the knots with her sweetheart, there is usually one desire in her heart amidst many others, it is that her union might bring forth children. It’s also not new to find in many single ladies the longing to carry their babies someday.
The Holy scripture says, As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man so are children.
Children are the heritage of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is his reward…
It is therefore to our responsibility to take good care of them.
Now someone may wonder, why did I limit this to mothers, aren’t the fathers also involved?
Of course they are. I implore fathers to visits these sites too.
Men have their part to play but we cannot ignore the fact that women are nurturers by creation. We are the ones who carry these kids in our wombs, we breastfeed them, they run to us first when they cry. We have greater responsibility as far as this is concerned.
So in my research, I have been able to come up with these 12 blogs that I want to recommend. They are blogs run by women who are mothers themselves and practical issues are drawn from different areas that you will find interesting.
Let’s get right to it. Below are the 12 blogs every Christian Mother should visit.
1. The Better Mom.
A very creative site that addresses issues ranging from meal planning to health to christian faith.
2. Together with Family.
Angela is an experienced mother and she shares useful tips on how to balance work with nurturing of your kids.
3. 9ja Mom.
This is a site dedicated to discussing issues for the Nigerian woman. Questions are raised here, tips are given and critical issues are addressed. This is one safe spot for the Nigerian mother.
4. Courageous Mom.
One great thing I love about this blog is the way she addresses issues that many mothers shy away from. She also gives practical ideas on how to raise our kids the God’s way.
5. Yum Yucky Blog.
One of the greatest fear of many mothers is that of losing shape and having a flabby body. This blog helps to deal with that. You’ll be able to remain in shape and maintain a healthy lifestyle. You can find videos here too that could be of help. The interesting part is Josie Maurer is a lover of Jesus.
6. Mama of three Boys
She is interested in the busy mother who also desires to see growth in her spiritual walk with God.
7. Mama Natural
This is a health related blog that caters for your child’s health and that of your family. From fertility issues to pregnancy to tending to your babies.
8. Focus on the Family
This is actually, in my opinion, the leading site for parenting. I doubt if there is any issue not addressed on this site.
9. Modern Alternative Mama
Kate is a mother of 5 and she focuses majorly on babies, how to wean them, things to avoid and many other matters relating to babies.
10. Inspire The Mom
This is all she does. Inspire. Through her stories and posts about lifestyle issues that relates to mothers, she gears mothers to live a fulfilling life.
11. Mummy’s Yum
This is a blog run by a Nigerian mother and dedicated to sharing a variety of food recipes for the Nigerian mother. It’s a wonderful blog to visit if you are seeking for recipes to wean your babies.
12. Today’s Christian Woman
I love this blog for the depth and the broad topics addressed. I included this in my list because I believe that as we are striving to see that our kids grow in Christ, we would also want to see growth in our own spiritual walk with God. This blog is centered basically on faith and our growth in Christ.
