Today we set aside the many issues going on in our world in order to pay tribute to Moms.

This coming Sunday is Mother’s Day, which has been around for over 100 years. Though there were some varied celebrations of Mother’s Day prior to this, the first official recognition of the holiday was in West Virginia in the early 1900’s. Grafton, WV is viewed as being the birth place of Mother’s Day.

It was May 14, 1914 that President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating the second Sunday of May as Mother’s Day. We recognize Mother’s Day as a day set aside to honor our mothers.

One of the examples of a godly mother in Scripture is found in II Timothy 1:5: “When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also.” It was the influence of a godly mother and grandmother that directly impacted young Timothy to be a follower of Jesus Christ.

Jim Schneider finds this true in his own life as well and shared his personal testimony.

The majority of this program was filled with many listeners who called in to honor their mothers.
