    Sadly the one thing I learned from my mother is to put my children first before others. My mom has forgotten that and that is why I am estranged from her.
    The thing that I find the most challenging about motherhood is balance.

      I’m so sorry to hear that, Elicia. Sadly, this rings true for many families. Hope that challenges us to be a different kind of mom. Thanks so much for coming on and visiting our online home. 🙂

    The most rewarding mom moment, is when your children go out of there way to make you feel amazing!

      Aaawww, that’s so sweet and special, BKarpov. You did a wonderful job of raising children who appreciate your hard work!

    Most challenging part of being a mom is finding the time to spend with the kids. Working full time and trying to keep up with kids is not easy.

    • admin 05/14/2018, 12:50 pm Link Reply

      Time management sure is difficult. Finding a system that works is so important or else you’ll be so tired and won’t have the energy to give back to the kiddos and hubby. Naps are your friend, Irinka! 🙂 You’ll never get everything done, but find time to spend on you. It’s so important. 🙂

    I’m a mother of 2 kids and I learn from my mom how to be patient, carrying and loving. My parents showed a great example by teaching us all 14 how to love God. Im so thankful to Our God for our amazing parents!

    • admin 05/14/2018, 12:48 pm Link Reply

      What a blessing to have AMAZING parents! Such an undeserving gift from above.
      Thank you, Olenka, for being a part of our online home. 🙂

    There are many, but one of my favorite recipes from your blog is the Broccoli Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast Recipe! One of the challenges of motherhood is getting your kids to eat right — I’m pretty lucky that I don’t have fussy eaters! (And I subscribe to your blog)

    • admin 05/14/2018, 12:47 pm Link Reply

      Thank you, Jennifer, for trying our stuffed chicken. That’s such a unique but delicious recipe.
      I’m with you on that one. My kiddos are not really into veggies and it’s so hard to sneak them in, lol.
      Really appreciate you being a part of our online family. <3

    My mother is definitely a woman of prayer, leaves everything in God’s hands – we see the answered prayers and definitely an example for us!

    • admin 05/14/2018, 12:46 pm Link Reply

      That’s so powerful that you are able to experience that first hand, Lana. Gives you such faith and inspiration to follow!

  • Rivka 05/13/2018, 12:12 am Link Reply

    I have learned from my mom to care about other people. My mom is always thinking, worrying, and doing for others on her own initiative.

    • admin 05/14/2018, 12:45 pm Link Reply

      Your mom sounds like an amazing woman, Rivka. What a blessing to have such an example to aspire to! So wonderful.

      That really is so special, Kelly. You get to see life through their innocent eyes! 🙂

  • Nataliya 05/12/2018, 11:08 am Link Reply

    I thankful to the Lord that He gave me mom that taught us that payer life is always needed, she was a great example. I remember how she would go into the little storage we had to pray and everytime she came out you could see she cried before the Lord praying for us. I didn’t realize that was important until I became a mother myself and praying for your kids and husband everyday is very important! Pray hard for them while they are little soo you don’t have to shed tears when they grow up and you see they went the wrong way. Bless them to become the warriors of God and be that example for them.

    • admin 05/14/2018, 12:44 pm Link Reply

      Your comment is so beautiful, Nataliya! It’s so special. They is so much power in a praying wife and mother.
      It truly is amazing what we realize about our parents and their sacrifices when we become parents ourselves. Our eyes are opened to so much more.
      Thank you so much for visiting our online home.

    Growing up I never got along with my mom. I always thought she was out to get me and I felt like she always had an issue with everything I did. I would complain to my dad about her all the time and he always told me, “just wait until you have kids and then your whole image of her is going to change!” Never did I believe those words but here I am two kids later and boom! My mom is my rock! We talk about twice a day and live only a few minutes apart. I would be lost without her, without her advice, without her help. How she had the patience for me or my six siblings I don’t know but thank You Jesus for giving us such a blessing!

    • admin 05/14/2018, 12:41 pm Link Reply

      I cannot say I had the best relationship growing up either. My parents are my go-to people for everything. Though I love my mom and she’s probably the closest human to me (after my husband), my dad is right there with her. I have such a special relationship with him. Parents are so wise and such a blessing if we take the time to be a part of their lives. <3

  • Lena 05/11/2018, 10:51 am Link Reply

    What amazes me about my mom, is how she managed 6 children,and a mini farm while we had no running water, no washing machine, and no disposable diapers… And I don’t remember our house being a mess or dinner being late.

    I find the most challenging part of being a mother myself is time management, and proper training of my children so they grow up to be responsible and fear the Lord. What I love most is just being a mother is so rewarding, to give and receive unconditional love is priceless.

    • admin 05/14/2018, 12:40 pm Link Reply

      I’m with you on that one. When my mom shares her stories of how they lived I just want to sob crying for days thinking about their hardships. Yet she never complains and is so grateful in all she does. Such women to aspire to!
      I just loved your last sentence, “to give and receive unconditional love is priceless.” And all the people said, “AMEN”!

  • Karolina 05/11/2018, 2:54 am Link Reply

    My beautiful mother taught me how to Love God. I think it’s so important.

    I love the braised potatoes in the oven, we eat it all the time thank you!!

      That is the most beautiful thing a parent can teach their child, loving God, especially with their life as an example. <3
      Thank you so much for trying the recipes from our online home, we're so happy are here.

    Both my parents are amazing! Our family immigrated to America when all of us children were very young. Not knowing the language, my mother managed to enroll us into school and helped us in our education while my father worked to support the family. My mother was also a passionate cook and very talented baker. Both my parents put in all their effort to provide us with the essentials and with as much more as they could afford. Despite the fact that we lived frugally, we had everything we ever needed. My parents often took us to parks and we enjoyed natural beauty on a daily basis. We learned to enjoy the intangible aspects of life, and now, those are the experienced that we treasure most. Overall, my parents made our childhood the best we could imagine.

    • admin 05/14/2018, 12:36 pm Link Reply

      I cried reading your comment, Elle. Your parents are AMAZING! Kind of gives me goosebumps. We had a very “frugal” upbringing too, we immigrated with nothing to our names and parents worked so hard to provide for us. So grateful to them for the sacrifices they made on our behalf.
      If you mama has any “special” recipes that are “hers”, I’d be so HONORED to share them on my blog and her story. 🙂 🙂 valentina at
      So humbled to have you a part of our online family.

    The best and most precious thing i learned from my momis to be patient and calm.
    Most rewarding thing now as i am a mother is when child or all of them come and express how much they appreciate my effort and care for them.
    Our plans for the summer is to go and visit my and my husband’s motherland. We take our children with us and show them where we grew up and how different life is there [eastern Europe].

    • admin 05/14/2018, 12:32 pm Link Reply

      Oh please tell me where you are going, Viktoriya. We are praying about possibly going to my husband’s home, Uzbekistan. Our kids have never been overseas and it would be such a wonderful experience for us all.
      It truly is so special when your kids can verbalize and tell you how much you’re appreciated. Makes the hard work we do so worthwhile.

    Thanks for a great giveaway! I was blessed with an amazing mother who taught me to love God & people. My favorite recipe from your blog is baked chicken fajitas & broccoli salad with bacon.

      She has thought you the most important two lessons that Jesus instructed us with. <3
      Thanks for trying our family's recipe. We so appreciate it. True do!

    – I am grateful for my mom who works at a hard job every day and still manages to find the time and energy to make food for the family and make sure the house is always clean. She always takes guests in to her house and will always feed anyone who walks through her door. My mom also does a lot at church. She’s the lead choir director of main and youth choirs, and always is in charge of feeding guests that come.

    – The most challenging part of being a mother for me is not getting enough sleep and always having to remind myself to stay patient. What’s rewarding is raising these children to know the Lord. I also love that children forgive quickly. They might be upset for a minute but then they still run to me for hugs and kisses.

    – I don’t have a favorite recipe, but every single one I tried turned out delicious! But I also really enjoy reading the blogs you post on life and different testimonies.

    – My plans for this summer is to do lots of housework with hubby. We have a brand new house which we moved into this past December, so there’s lots of work to do, especially outside (as it finally warmed up enough to be able to do it) Also I want to spend as much time as possible with my kids outside and then go on a little getaway vacation with the family 🙂

      I reread your comment like 5 times. I loved it! Thanks so much for taking the time to let me get to know you, I feel so special and like a friend.
      Your mom sounds amazing! I love her already. We have guests in our home ALL the time as well, it’s such a beautiful way to serve others.
      Thanks for letting me know you enjoy those personal posts, that means the world to me!
      Housework, I love it! I went to school for an interior designer so when house design or work comes up, my heart kind of skips a happy beat, hehe. 🙂 I’d love to see your progress if you’d care to share, my e-mail is under CONTACT.
      I feel like I know you now, Yuliya, and will look forward to more of your comments.

    I am so so thankful that God have me not only the most caring and selfless mom but also a best friend I can talk and laugh with. She has taught me what it looks like to put others first and do so with a joyful heart.

      Oh, how I love to hear when a mom and a daughter has a wonderful friendship. That just speaks VOLUME about the wonderful person you are.

    I am a mother of 3 children and a sibling of 14! I am honored to be my kids’ mom. I enjoy spending time with them, teaching them about God, and watching them grow and soak everything in. It is very rewarding to be called “mom”, and to get hugs and kisses before school and after i come home from work.

    • admin 05/14/2018, 12:21 pm Link Reply

      Your mom is an impressive lady, Agnessa! Wow!
      I agree with you, it’s such a blessing and honor to be called “mom”! So so humbling.
