An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels.” – Proverbs 31:10

Her spiritual beauty and loveliness makes her diligently sought after, but only a chosen few actually succeed in their mission to find her. Yet those who do succeed realize that they did not find her, but were rather given a gift from the Lord.

The Lord took pleasure in saving my father and mother, by His amazing grace, and transformed them into the righteous man and the virtuous woman.

My mother is that rare and precious gift.

She is a godly wife, a wonderful mother and a precious friend. I do not know what I would do without her. She is there to encourage, to edify, to talk with and to listen, to teach and train, to laugh with, to cry with, to dream with, and to share my heart with. She is a faithful wife and mother who is always finding ways to encourage and bless her family.

I could not ask for a better mother. I consider myself blessed to be given such a wonderful and precious gift from the Lord: a god-fearing mother.

She is a gift I do not deserve. But in God’s perfect will, He has made her my mother and I her daughter. Thank you, Lord!

    It is such a blessing to be able to be raised by God-fearing parents. My mother was the anchor in our home and if it were not for Christ that blossomed out of her every day life, I don’t think I would be able to stand here today with confidence in my own relationship of Christ that is growing daily. It is so great to be able to know that through all the issues in this world, we were given an early teaching and were raised on the Word.

    What a lovely tribute to your mom. I can tell that she is everything you say because I can see the fruit she has produced in you and your sister.
