Fall is one of my favorite times of year. I love the cooler weather
and the beautiful fall colors. I hope you can take time out and
appreciate God’s creation wherever you live.

One of my favorite things to do with my children (even now that
they are older) is the Samaritan’s Purse shoeboxes. This is
a wonderful thing to do even with young children. Fill a shoebox

Cynthia shares with us her joys in being a CWM: I have always enjoyed
each development stage my children have gone through and I have
been blessed with a flexible work schedule that has allowed me to
be there with them. On the other hand, I do like to keep myself
busy and useful. Now that my children are older, I enjoy having
the opportunity to work and help provide for our needs. Working
for our church also enables me to help the younger moms that are
coming up with my experiences and hopefully my positive example.
Cynthia struggles with: When you are raising a family and working,
there are always conflicts. Conflicts can be in schedules, sickness,
deadlines and missed meetings.

Words of Encouragement for other Christian Working Moms: There

Thanks for sharing Cynthia. Often when I look back over my life
I clearly see God’s hand in those out of control times.
Take time today to thank God for your children (gifts from Him).
Ask that God will use them for His glory, no matter how young. Children
often can reach people that we as adults cannot.
Till next time,
