Real Motherhood: A Mother's Day Sermon
Dave Gustavsen
1 Samuel 1

Alright-we're going to be in 1 Samuel today-toward the beginning of your Bible. 1 Samuel chapter one.

But before we go there, I want to say thank you to all the kids who filled out the ''Mom'' cards in their Chapel Kids class-hopefully you saw the wall of Motherhood as you came in.

And I wanted to just show you a few highlights from those cards-so here is the Top Ten…

What I love about my mom is…She cheers me up when I'm sad and you help me with my problems. I love you and I mean it.

She lets me help her clean the laundry room. That's a smart mom, right? It's MY turn to clean out the lint trap! Bobby did it last time!

This was definitely one of my favorites: She makes me feel awesome when I feel put down. That's pretty powerful, isn't it?
