Let’s face it, there are times in life when it would be easier to accept the painful, ugly moments of life rather than Hope for something different. Sometimes we don’t know that we have the strength to Hope when it hurts. We don’t know if we can see how things could be through the tears of how […]
Someday, I won’t be washing handprints off the hall walls. Someday, I won’t discover lizards in the laundry. Someday, I won’t see the crayon markings on the window.

MOM’s Mailbox was created for YOU! I remember being a young momma. I remember the number of times I needed an older woman to answer my questions regarding both the intimate and practical issues pertaining to being a woman, a wife, and a mother.
Ask your question here so you & others can benefit together!
I love the encouragement and redirection I get from you!
I always go to your page when I’m anxious…there’s always something uplifting to calm me.
There is no possible way for you to know how you have blessed my life with your words, your kindnesses, and your example to me. You are never far from my mind and I will be ever thankful to God, and to you, for the time I spent watching and learning from you. Thank you, Jeanette.
It sounds crazy, but our chat at the elevator had such a huge impact on me.

Thank you for providing all the encouragement to everyone you touch.
Everytime I read something from the MOM blog, I walk away feeling refreshed and Mrs. Wood always gives me an encouraging word to know that my ministry at home is full of importance.
If I could sit at Jeanette’s feet and just soak up her godly wisdom all day long, I would. Jeanette is one of those rare gems whose cup overflows into the very lives around her.
