The Faith of a Mother

The faith of a mother is liken to no other. She must look to the Lord each and every day, from sun up to sun down and all day long. From the time we rise until we collapse in exhaustion a mother’s faith is what will see her through her days.

Sometimes in the midst of these days, the faith of a mother gets drained and we struggle to keep our peace. It is in these times that the faith of a mother is essential. Yet, how do we grow our faith strong in the midst of all of life’s chaos that seems to be relentless?

The Faith of a Mother

In order for a mother’s faith to grow it requires us to be intentional with our time and actions. How we choose to use our time and the way we respond is important not only to growing our own faith, but also for teaching our children about how faith should look in their own lives. Our faith is to be living example to our children of all that God is, what He does and how we, His children, are to live.

1. Our faith must be a priority. 

It can not be something we do if we have time.

Our faith must be strengthened throughout every day.

2. Faith is built up by daily being in God’s word and spending time in prayer. 

Remember God knows our days as a mother, it isn’t about having hours to study, it’s about making the daily choice to spend time with Him.

3. Quality vs. Quantity

Most mother’s don’t have hours to spend studying, so we must ensure our time with the Lord is of great quality. Scripture, prayer and praise are key to the faith of a mother.

4. Praise builds our faith.

Take time to listen to some Christian music during times of difficulty and praise the Lord.

In the midst of difficult days, if we take time to praise the Lord, He will renew our strength and thus our faith continues to be built.

5. Prayer is key to hearing from the Lord. 

In the quiet is when He speaks. If we don’t take time to be still then we can’t hear Him speaking to us.


As we strive each day to become closer to the Lord, grow more like Him and be a living example of God to our children, we will find the peace and direction that we often long for in our busy days. The key to growing our faith is that we must keep our eyes on Christ throughout our days and follow His ways.

  1. I’m always amazed when I bump into moms who blog, you’re my heroes. Then to see such a noble list as you’ve created, catapults you to ‘saint status’. Don’t forget to add, making time for yourself and being quick to forgive yourself too. Mothering is a steady, hard job. There’s not enough hours in the day to do it all, and plenty of reason to receive a boatload of grace. God loves you so, Misty. Thanks for your commitment to your family and your faith.

    • No saint here Pat, just a flawed mother seeking to become more like her Savior every day and point her children to Him along the way. Blessings Pat!

  2. Good words, Misty. Motherhood has taught me to live alive faith – that works, that walks, that breathes and lives – in the midst of moments that take my breath away. I always wondered how people can keep God in their minds all day long – and motherhood has trained my mind to do that.

  3. Prayer is the link to intimacy with the Father. I need to have that time with Jesus before I meet with my kids or I can’t be the momma I need to be for His glory. Great reminders, Misty!

  4. Hi Misty, Thanks so much for sharing this over at CMB. Growing our own faith is an essential part of helping our children grow in faith. It all takes place in the daily.

    • You’re very welcome! It is so important to continue to grow in the Lord to inspire the desire to grow in our children! Thank you for hosting! Blessings Deb!

  6. Thank you so much for sharing this. It was so beautifully written and so true. I can tell such a huge difference in my day if I do not start it with God. I feel as through faith is something that I am continually needing to work on.

    • Yes, starting the day with the Lord is so important to us as mothers and to our children. <3 Praying for you this morning Amy.
