Christian Working Mom Interview 2008
CWM Coaching Tips
My children started back to school.
I have many mixed emotions this year. Both of my children
have started new schools and this is the first year
my children have not been in the same school. I have
to admit I was a little weepy. God had to remind me
throughout the day that He is in control and watching
over my precious ones. How do you handle the back
to school time with your children? Come share your
thoughts on the CWM Blog at http://christianworkingmoms.blogspot.com.
Special Offer for CWM Subscribers
You all have heard me talk many times
about my difficulties in finding modest clothes for
my daughter. At one point we started buying camisoles
to go underneath shirts that were immodest. Then,
we had a problem with the camis, if we pulled them
down to cover her bottom then they didn't cover up
top well. If we pulled them up top then they didn't
cover her bottom. I have finally found the Wonder
Cami. The wonder cami covers great up top and goes
far enough down over your pants to cover when you
bend over so you don't show anything. You can find
these great camis and other modest clothes at www.sakurarose.com.
Until September 15th, CWM subscribers will get free
shipping just enter the code CWM at checkout. We have
bought several of these camis and they do not shrink
after washing. Now, there are shirts I let my daughter
buy that I would not previously; I just tell her you
need to wear a cami underneath to make it acceptable.
Check it out.

Liz was gracious to be interviewed this
month. Liz is a 44 year old divorced CWM who lives
in the United States. She has an 11 year old daughter.
Liz is a registered nurse and Early Intervention Service
Liz shares the following joys of being
a CWM: Being able to impact the lives of families
with children who have developmental delays; helping
foster parents who are taking care of children who
have been born addicted to drugs or neglected or abused;
being a positive Christian influence in a frequently
negative work environment; being able to tell a secretary
at the end of her rope that the God of the Universe
loves her and has a purpose for her life; and providing
financially for my family.
Liz struggles with: Constantly juggling
child care arrangements; time crunch pressures; balancing
work, home, part-time business, church and other time
commitments; wanting to be home during the summer
with my child (go to the beach!) but I am not able
to do that; feeling “out of the loop”
from friends who either home school or are stay-at-home
Liz’s favorite Bible Verse is:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not
on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge
him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs
God is teaching Liz: A lesson that bears
repeating…The Lord God is my heavenly Husband
and to look to Him to provide everything I need.
Liz shares the following words of encouragement
for other Christian Working Moms: Whether you choose
to work or have to work, work at it for the Lord and
not for men. And…give yourself permission to
take the time you need to take care of yourself emotionally,
physically and spiritually. Put the oxygen mask on
first so you are able to take care of others.
Thanks Liz for reminding us to take
care of ourselves. I do think we are often last on
our to do list.
Till next time,
Kimberly M. Chastain
