What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Today’s Christan Mom longs for more. She deeply desires a thriving relationship with Christ, an intimate and joy-filled marriage, children who follow Jesus and a happy and peaceful home. The problem is she is also raising her children in one of history’s most confusing and counter- biblical times, so she feels all of these desires she longs for are difficult to attain. Battling the influences of culture on her children can leave her feeling overwhelmed and desperate for help to raise them differently from the world. She wants a Christian home so badly, but it’s possible that either she herself wasn’t raised in one, or she just has little idea what to do. Brothers and sisters in Christ, this is the state of parenting in the world in which we live today. Christian moms tell me they desperately want to raise up children for Jesus but don’t know where to begin. These moms need the truths of the never-changing Word of God. They need Jesus and His help now more than ever before!

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

When there is a mom in the home who has faith in the power of God in her children’s lives, there’s no limit to what she can do with her kids. We need Christian moms who take their calling to live godly lives with their families and raise up the next generation for the Lord seriously.
If we don’t invest in discipling Christian women today, what will our world be like 50, 75, or 100 years from now? Will there be Christian families represented on this earth who impact the world for Christ? Now is the time to invest in the next generation.

Help Club for Moms disciples women using a three-part approach by sharing Bible-based, practical devotionals through our online ministry, establishing Help Clubs in churches and small groups, and publishing books and curriculum for moms, small group leaders, and churches to purchase through online retailers.

Online ministry:
Our website and the online community via social media allow us to gain access and provide fellowship to moms who otherwise may not go to church or a small group. Our online group prays together, reads our devotionals, and shares practical ideas designed to help moms create a Christ-centered home. Our website travels into hard-to-reach countries with the hope of Jesus Christ and helps moms learn how to have a personal relationship with Him.

Church and small group ministry:
We create in-person communities where moms meet at churches or in small groups to encourage one another and study the Bible together through our practical devotionals and “Mom Tips.” We partner with leading Christian denominations and work together to promote mom's programs within their churches.

The Help Club for Moms church and small group program is designed to help the busy mom learn how to walk in fellowship with other moms and grow into the Christian woman, wife, and mother she was created to be. We offer low-cost, easy, and fun programs for churches, where the only expense is purchasing the books on Amazon, and a free leaders group on Facebook with lesson plans and additional ideas to help the group to thrive.

Publishing:
Providing practical Bible study devotional workbooks and “Mom Tips” is one way we help moms know Jesus more intimately. These tools encourage women to read the Bible and pray, cultivate great marriages, disciple their children through fun activities, develop the weekly
habit of praying with a friend, and create Christ-centered atmospheres in their homes. Our books help disciple women and also provide revenue to help fund our ministry expenses and the free programs we provide to women around the world.
