3 ways God’s love is manifested in motherhood

3 ways Gods Love is manifested in motherhood

The love of God is manifested to our lives in many ways. One of them is the love of a mother towards her children.  Thus, we can receive an unconditional love like that of a mother. In the same way, God manifests his great love for the children with the care of a whole family as well. Today I want to share with you a little about a very special book that was written for the children “God loves Mommy & Me” and how God’s love is manifested in motherhood.

I believe the word when it says in Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go [teaching him to seek God’s wisdom and will for his abilities and talents], Even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Having resources with a biblical based for children is very important, as they are the next generation that rises to manifest the power and glory of God here on earth.

This book interweaves from the first page to the end the love of God deposited in the heart of a mother to be manifested to her children. How? Demonstrating with love, care, teaching and the importance of forgiveness. This beautifully illustrated book draws the attention of children and adults in their illustrations and simplicity but with such powerful teachings.

3 ways God’s love is manifested in motherhood

  • In Love

A mother’s love surpasses everything! There is no day that a mother does not express that great love for her children. With words, with hugs and with its constant closeness.


  • In Care

God created the woman in such a way that she has everything she needs to take care of her children. Mothers have the patience and wisdom to give the best care to their children in food, daily care and growth and development.

  • In Security

I remember the times that my mother always tried to protect me from the dangers and took care of me all the time.  Mothers do know how to take care of their children from danger. Mothers have a sense of responsibility and alertness to protect their children from something external that can harm them.

This is the love of a mother, representative of the immense and unmeasured love that God has for us. My recommendation for a mother: letting herself be guided by God so that this love for her children is manifested.

The basics of Bible Journaling

The Basics of Bible Journaling

Welcome to His Purpose In Me blog! Officially I’m launching the blog today with some basics about bible journaling.  I don’t know you, but since I discovered bible journaling I feel more attracted to the word of God.  And that is good! That is the purpose after all.

Today, I want to share with you some basics and really easy ways to start your bible journaling experience.  I will show you just how I started.  Let’s see!

The Basics of Bible Journaling

1. The bible:

  • Look for a bible that works best for you.  When I started bible journaling I was just using the King James bible without margins.  I discovered that I had my bible with so many marking, drawing and notes that then, and only then, I decided to get a journaling bible with margins.  You can get your bible at, or any other christian store.

2. Let’s color:

  • Besides using a pen or pencil, you can use some color too! The basics about color is using some coloring pens or markers.  I just got recently new coloring pens (Prismacolor) and some markers too that I found at a super low price at Marshall’s! You can draw, highlight and do some lettering with them.

3. Stickers:

  • The stikcers are a great way to add some color, dimension and personality to you bible journaling.  You can express a feeling or thought just using stickers.  I love using stickers in my bible journaling.  Mostly, I use the collections of Illustrated Faith that you can find at Dayspring.

4. Use some tape:

  • Yes! you can use some tape too.  And I refer to the washi tape that comes in different sizes and patterns.  I love to use washi tape in my bible, because most of the time you can re-position them.  You can find some variety of washi tape at Etsy, Ebay and Dayspring.

There is much more about bible journaling and you can integrate other things and techniques! In the next post I will be sharing more about this.  For the moment, I know  you can start bible journaling with these basics.  Just find the perfect bible for you, add some color, use stickers and meditate in the word of God!
