Happy Mother’s Day

My mom and I in the British Museum, 2008.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you mom’s out there.

I have a lot to thank my mom for, and not just for teaching me to laugh and how to make pie crust (hers will always be better than mine…).

My mom has been instrumental in my life as a Christian since I was little. See my mom wasn’t a Christian when I was born, but she started taking me to church when I was a toddler. When we moved (I was 4) she started taking me to a new church in that area. My second grade Sunday school teacher introduced my mom to Christian radio and it was listening to Christian radio that eventually resulted in my mom getting saved. The Lord did such a mighty work in her life that I knew I wanted to be a Christian too.

Years later when we found ourselves in an unhealthy church environment my mother taught me fearlessness, by standing up for what was right even when it meant going against church leadership. She’s always been willing to stand for truth and I’m so thankful to have had her to look up to, learn from and to encourage me to do the same.

And I’m really happy I can call her every time I forget how to cook something.

 

About Julia

Here's what you might like to know about me. My name is Julia and I'm a Christian. I love the Bible and, much less importantly, a good steak. My goal with this site is to share the truth of scripture with believer and non-believer alike, and to specifically encourage believers to study and know the Bible, and warn them of false teachings in and around the church. Romans 1:16-17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, the just shall live by faith."
