Need Your Help
I need more CWMs who are willing to be interviewed. We all can
learn from one another. If you are interested, please send an email
and put interview in the subject heading.
Rita is a 47 year old CWM who lives in the United States. She has
a 7 year old daughter and is an executive assistant.
Rita enjoys being a CWM in that she supports a dynamic, cutting-edge
leader in the EMS Industry. She also says her COO truly appreciates
her and respects her. He is the most brilliant, yet humble leader
I have ever had the privilege of working for.
Rita struggles in the following areas of being a Christian Working
Mom: I miss my daughter every day. At certain times of the year,
I miss her more, but each and every day I have to turn her over
to God and trust that He will keep her safe.
Rita’s favorite Bible Verse is: 15 He is the image of the
invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For
by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth,
visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or
rulers or authorities--all things were created through him
and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and
in him all things hold together. 18 And he is
the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the
firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. 19 For in
him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through
him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making
peace by the blood of his cross. Colossians 1:15-20
What is God teaching you right now?
That it is OK to receive joy and fulfillment from my work and that
I don't have to feel guilty. I'm actually an equal partner with
my husband in providing for our family.
Words of Encouragement for other Christian Working Moms:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Be open to His direction,
pray, wait on Him and be obedient to His calling on your life.
Anything else you would like to share:
My true heart's desire is to impact the lives I touch every day
for the glory of God, for the advancement of the Gospel, and for
the fulfillment of His eternal Kingdom purpose.
Thanks Rita for reminding us how our everyday life can touch others
for the glory of God. We may never know what effect our words have
on others till eternity.
As Moms sometimes it doesn’t seem all the daily chores we
do really matter, but they do. Changing diapers, breaking up fights
between siblings, dealing with teen angst, and everything else we
do we can do in a way that glorifies God. Nothing is too menial
in God’s kingdom.
