Tuesdays for Timothy Moms meme guidelines

Ok, I've never done this, but here we go...

Starting tomorrow I'll be hosting Tuesdays for Timothy Moms with a Mr. Linky thingy :)

Every Tuesday I'll post on a particular subject concerning being a mom who teaches her kids God's word. Each week there will be a different theme. For instance: A word from the Word for your kids. Share a recent teachable moment. Resources you love to use. What works for you and your kids. Prayers for your kids, etc. At the bottom of my post will be a Mr. Linky thingy (a widget) to link up to your blog to this meme.

My heart here is to provide a place where we can encourage each other by opening up our own lives (as much as you can in a blog post) to each other. When we read each others posts I'm sure we'll be encouraged to keep pressing on in this labor of love to see Christ formed in our little ones.

Here's the guidelines:

  • The post must be uplifting. That doesn't mean don't be honest. Sharing honestly our good, bad and ugly days, struggles or circumstances IS UPLIFTING! It just musn't be condemning towards others.

  • The post should be concerning being a Timothy Mom (click here to learn more about that). In short that means the posts point should be to share something about the life of a mom who makes it her aim to teach her children God's word and live a life of genuine faith in Christ before them.

  • This isn't exclusively a homeschool blog meme. Though, I do talk about homeschooling on this blog and many of the contributors here homeschool, I would love to have a mom who does not homeschool post here! So if you're a homeschooling mom, great, if not, that's great too! All are welcome. But if you are a homeschooling mom, please refrain from discussing curriculum in your post. The emphasis here is just teaching and modeling God's word to our kids.
  • Please right click on the Tuesdays for Timothy Moms picture on this post and put it on your TFTM's post.
  • And of course no foul language or filth will be tolerated here. Ephesians 4:29 is the rule, "Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may bring grace to the hearers."
