There is a series going on over at Desiring God that I would love to encourage all the moms of Basswood to check out. They are calling it the “Mommy Wars”. With so many experienced, expecting, and new mothers in our fellowship, it seems Providentially timed!

Believing that pregnancy and motherhood is more than just a physical struggle these articles are aimed at helping our sisters (and the brothers who have been fit together with them) do more than just survive. The battles of pregnancy and motherhood are primarily spiritual battles. And so the encouragements that we direct toward our sisters ought to reflect that.

More than help about changing bodies, trendy technology, and even timeless questions, our sisters need encouragement to press into Christ, to be fitted with the full armor of God, and to fight for their joy in God.

Check out the latest post on God’s Armor and the whole series.
