The internet is swarming to the brim of all imaginable pages and resource links to help the nanays of our generation (it includes this writing working mom). And so, the only way you can prevent yourself from spending too many hours on the internet looking at perfect articles tailor-fit to your special mommy-needs, let me do the legwork for you and list down what for me, are the top 5 Christian Mom Blogs for the year. Please note that this ranking is based on my personal insights, according to my mommy-needs and not based on traffic, view or share rankings.
The topics are perfect for those who have small kids/babies as author is a Christian mom to a baby daughter who writes for her blog and is writing for her first book. Topics are varied which covers breastfeeding and month on month baby milestones. I also like that the author is keeping a Thousand Thanks, she is currently on her 60th thanks as of this writing. I would have loved to complete her 2015 Mom’s photo challenge. (pictured below).
The page is aptly named, women living well and encourages all women in the world to find joy in God, in marriage, in parenting and in the home. The page currently has a series of blogs written to understand the Songs of Solomon focusing on keeping the intimacy in your marriage. She also has articles on choosing to have joy in the midst of mundane mommy tasks, what to do when your husband is not a Proverbs31 husband and glorifying God with your shopping list (yes, it is possible!). The author has countless years of leading Bible Studies and is the creator of SOAK Bible Study Method (Scripture, Observation, Application, Kneeling in Prayer).
Perfect resource page for homeschooling moms in the Philippines, as author writes and shares about an endless list of homeschooling events that are open to everyone. It even has a review of DepEd’s Alternative Learning System and Family Discipleship, the page also covers mommy-friendly events such as Zumba Marathons and seasonal meet ups such as the Magical Easter. The main topic of Beyondsilverandgold.com is to provide inspiration for homeschool families, product reviews for homeschool materials, books, places and events. It gives more than a glimpse into a Filipino family’s homeschool journey. It is written by a Christian work-at-home, homeschooling mom who multi-tasks as a homeschool mom for twelve years, a blogger, a product reviewer, an event director and a life insurance agent. This blog’s mission is to encourage homeschooling and work-at-home moms as they pursue their family and personal goals. Michelle envisions this blog to be the go-to resource for homeschool families in the years to come.
Among the most viewed articles on the page are her birth delivery story, her wedding story, and mommy-friendly product reviews. This page gives us a glimpse of how the author juggles mommyhood, marriage, ministry and everything in between the interesting things she has to do week on week. It further encourages mommies like me to have that balance while ensuring not to miss the important milestones for family. Mrs. Bo surely has her readers learning with her and discovering God more in their mommyhood journey.
The family category on her pages are full of lesson-filled points and valid questions mommies like me should be asking. The page has a big range of relevant mommy topics covered such as: Sex as a Discipline, marriage check, the oh-so-familiar mommy-guilt and even interesting analogies like Parenting the Smart Gilas Way and Lessons from the Goose Family. It also clues us in on what God is doing in our ministry as she tells us about what happened in the Arise Conference or the National Singles Getaway in Dubai.
All of these pages have one thing in common. They all write from their hearts. Mommies really need all the help they can get. Growing in mommyhood, afterall, means growing in our relationship with God, as we see His handprint on everything we have to be concern with daily.
