Praying for our children is a privilege and a blessing. We can change their lives by boldly approaching the Throne of Grace with their hearts, but sometimes it’s hard to know what or how to pray. Join with me as we explore a daily guide to prayer for moms.

The Lalabu Soothe Shirt (available for both men and women) is the easiest way to wear a newborn. It creates a womb-like environment for the newborn and allows the wearer to accomplish other tasks while providing the baby a cozy place to nap.
You’re nervous, I know. Your baby is still unpredictable. Sometimes she sleeps for 2 hours, but sometimes it’s only 15 minutes and she wakes up screaming.
He went 3 hours without eating the other day, but other times, he’s hungry every 30 minutes. “I don’t want to feed him all during church,” you’ve said. You’re scared to feed with all those people around (“what if she pulls the blanket off?”), but you don’t want to be exiled to the nursery, either.
And on that note, there are so many people around. What if he gets sick? His immune system is still so new. Or what if her diaper leaks and I don’t realize it before it’s too late? Do I need to take a change of clothes for me, too?
What if he cries? What if she screams? Should I just leave him in the nursery? Will people judge me if I bring her into the sanctuary? How do I take care of a newborn in church?

When it comes to our babies, we want nothing but the best, right? We want the safest car seats, the smartest doctors, the highest-rated schools. Yet when it comes to baby products such as lotions, shampoos, and wipes, we tend to buy what’s most popular or the ones we’ve heard the most about. Yet these products are the ones that are coming in direct contact with your sweet little one’s skin, so shouldn’t you want the best of them, as well? You should, and I’m a firm believer that natural baby products are the best.
I’ve always been an avid reader, and once I became pregnant, I knew that I wanted to focus on reading books that would prepare me for childbirth and parenthood. However, I also wanted to spend most of my time on books that would do so from a Christian perspective. These books touched my heart deeply as they revealed God’s heart for pregnancy, childbirth, and parenthood, and I know that they’ll touch your heart, as well. Keep reading as I share with you my top3 life-changing books for the Christian mom-to-be.
Being a mom who prays is one of the most powerful tools that God has given us. We have the power to move mountains and to break strongholds. Praying over our babies when they are in the womb is powerful because it places God’s Spirit upon them before they are faced with the evil of the world.
One choice that you may not have considered as an expectant mom is that of choosing between a traditional doctor (OBGYN or family practitioner) or a midwife. Midwives are becoming a much more popular choice these days, and there are many great reasons why.
