On Wednesday we heard from Bolaji, a mom that has been in the mom game for a little over a year. Today I’m excited to share from someone that has been in the mom game for almost 40 years. She has three biological children, but she’s a mother to many. Some one that I love and respect a lot…my mother, Mrs. Felicia Olaitan Omoni.

Here’s her message to Women and Mothers:
On this Mother’s Day, the most important piece of advice that I would give any mother, woman or girl is to always seek God. No matter how big or small the situation, seek Gods direction. I’m a testament of His faithful and I know that He will never fail you. This is not to say that life is perfect, there will be challenging times, but stand strong and never give up on Him.
For the moms, I know you have a lot on your plate, but you have to be engaged in your children’s lives - From doing homework to taking them to the park to play to disciplining them when the need arises. In this culture where instant gratification is prevalent, teach your children to appreciate what they have and to be polite. Also encourage them to work hard for their goals. Not everything will be handed to them on a silver plate, so encourage them to keep pushing until they’ve accomplished what’s been set before them.
Being a mother is a special calling by God and it shouldn’t be taken lightly. God has entrusted you with His property to raise and nurture. It’s a privilege that I am forevergrateful for. I pray that God will give you the wisdom, understanding and grace to raise the children that God has given you. They will fulfill their destines, in Jesus Name.
Happy Mother’s Day!
My Daughter, Me and My Mom :)
