A Mother’s Teaching

My son, keep your father’s command and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. 

Bind them always on your heart; fasten them around your neck. Proverbs 6:20-21

 

Scripture extols the teaching of parents to their children. It’s an encouraging reminder of the importance of the words we speak to our children. Mothers often find themselves as the voice of instruction in the car, at the homework table, while giving a bath, or tucking in at night. While these times can be rich, they can also be exhausting. Yet, the Lord graciously gives His children communities of people who help along the way and lighten the burden for a moment.

A Mother’s Song

Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. Psalm 33:3

 

Beyond teaching our children, it is refreshing and rewarding to have the opportunity to worship with them and to see them praise the Lord. Those moments make all the daily ins and outs worthwhile. We have the great privilege to bring joy before the Father as an act of worship, and how much sweeter it is when we can do it with our children!

 

A Mother’s Community

Born of a desire to come alongside the family in teaching and times of worship, Ceta Canyon launched the Mother/Daughter Retreat in 2009. We pray this continues to grow to a place where mothers and daughters can listen to God’s word together, experience His creation, and find community with other believers.

Over the March 23-24 weekend, Ceta was honored to host the largest Mother/Daughter Retreat in our history. We are grateful for all who attended. The sister team of Allison House and Eloise Bell delivered the message of “Heart to Heart” and led us in musical worship. Their ministry blessed us greatly. It was a joy to see mothers and daughters bringing glory to God through singing, playing, laughing, and spending quality time together.

We would love for you to join us in this ministry next year! Mark your calendars for March 22-23, 2019, as we look forward to a time of refreshing again with our mothers and daughters.
