This Mother’s Day Glenda Malmin shared a powerful word about the journey of motherhood through the story of Mary the mother of Jesus. It was challenging reminder that our lives are not our own and children are a gift to be given back to the Father. Watch here if you did not have the chance to hear it live.

The journey of a life well-lived is an eventful one. It’s heart-breaking at times & incredibly fulfilling at others. It’s the ‘thrill of victory’ or ‘the agony of defeat.’ It is both costly & rewarding. It is a lifelong journey,for sure, but it is one that will bring much fulfillment as we remain on the pathway in step with & in tune to the voice of our Heavenly Father.
Let us go forward in faith & obedience on this journey of life and live it well for the sake of the next generation.
