Do This for Your Mom

If there is one thing I know – My mom wants me to achieve, win, grow, mature, pretty much every positive thing you could possibly say.  She wants me to be safe, happy, and know that she loves me.  My wife wants this for our six children. But, there is an evil enemy to our own success and potential…  NEGATIVITY.  If there was one gift every mom would be happy to receive this Mother’s Day, it’s what I call ZERO NEGATIVITY from her children.


–This chalk board hangs in my dining room–


“but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.” 
2 Timothy 4:12

This reminder hangs on our dining room wall…A positive approach to life matters.  I know things may not be going your way and you may even feel the stress today of trying to please mom.  Take a positive approach to honoring mom and do these 4 things today.

4 Things Mom Wants You to Live With –

  • High Calling – When you were born, no matter what the circumstances, God knew you and shaped you.  Life won’t seem fair and there aren’t always easy answers, but God has a high calling for your life.
  • Deep Conviction – Those who stand for nothing with end up losing their honor.  Be passionate about your belief in God and how he has created you and what you know to be true.
  • High Commitment – Let your word be your word and stand on it.  There is nothing worse than someone who says they will do something and they never do it.  None of us are perfect, but that doesn’t give us the excuse to lie, deceive, and not follow through on our intentions.
  • High Accountability – Mom wants to know that you are going to be ok.  Surround yourself with people who will help you get to where mom knows you need to go.
