 Lately, I am in an accountability group with my daughter and her friend.  We live many miles apart, but are able to keep in touch daily by email.  So thankful to have sisters in Christ to share life's ups and downs, confess my weaknesses to, and receive encouragement from.  Closer to home, I have my own mom to talk with every day; she is a fount of godly wisdom and life experiences.  Our Bible study group meets weekly, and it's wonderful to share our thoughts on each lesson and pray for each other.

How do you "do" accountability and encouragement?  Who is the Lord using in your life to point you to Himself?  Are you serving Him by helping others grow closer to Him?  I'd love to hear your experiences!

Jean, good to have you here -- I somehow missed you back in January!  Thanks for coming in.  May God bless you.

I am new to this group, and am also learning how to navigate around. Looking forward to participating. Blassings to all.

Anne Cisz, I'm thankful that you are here.  Just got your message, and I do understand the struggles of being the godly leader, yet wanting to have your husband lead.  There are a couple of really good books on the topic; one that I have found very helpful is Created to Be His Help Meet, by Debi Pearl.  You can read some excerpts from the book at http://nogreaterjoy.org/blogs/createdtobehishelpmeet/excerpts/

 

I will be praying for you!

Anne, I think I did it wrong!  I sent a private message to the group, when I should have written on here!  Sorry!  I look forward to growing from the Godly wisdom of this group!  THANKS!

Love,

Anne

I am struggling to figure out how this network works.  I got a notice that someone else joined the group but can't find her post on here anywhere.  Please forgive if I do this wrong!!!!!

Anne, we live in Oregon, our daughter lives in Minnesota, and our son lives in Idaho. It is difficult when parents refuse care. Mom and Dad would not move in with any of my siblings (I'm the oldest of 7), and only let us come and live with her after much prayer. She values her independence! But I know that any of my brothers and sisters would have been happy to take them in, too, had they been willing.

It's been eye-opening to be a helper to my mom. She has enough energy to run circles around me! She is a fount of good advice, having been through many of the parenting and grandparenting issues already. Mostly I am cook and bottle-washer, and I do help her with moving Dad when she needs the help. Len does a lot of the house maintenance, and we both help with the yard work.

Our daughter teaches me a lot, too. She is so committed to obeying the Lord, and is especially an example of a wife who defers to and submits to her husband as her head. I have much more of a tendency to want my own way!

Hi Tammy! I am excited to get to know both of you better and to learn from you both. I learned in my study of Titus 2 that "older women" can most certainly mean chronological age but that all of us have areas of "younger" in us so we can actually learn from those younger than us. So we can all teach each other.

Beth, I so admire you for doing what you are doing with your aging parents. My mom is so in need of care but she refuses. And I am in Minnesota and she is in Tennessee. I need prayer for that department to be sure. My dad died 15 years ago and she remarried. That isn't going really well. She has been diagnosed with bi-polar disorder.

Where is here, Beth? Did I miss where you live?
Comment by Beth Wallstrom on November 21, 2010 at 8:53am
Welcome, Tammy! Yes, we all need encouragement. Len and I have two children, a boy and a girl, both married. Our son has two children who are in public school; our daughter home schools her six kids. We live 12 hours' drive from our son and 3 days' drive from our daughter, so the distances make it tough to visit them very often.

Our other "difference" is that we are living with my mom and dad. Dad has Parkinson's disease and is bedridden. Mom is in good health and is his caregiver. About 5 years ago, we realized that Mom was overwhelmed with all she had to do -- she wasn't even finding time to fix herself meals. So, we pulled up stakes and moved here to live. It has been a real blessing in so many ways! But I do miss seeing my kids and grandkids. I'm learning a lot about praying for them; so glad God loves them even more than I do!

I am so looking forward to getting to know those in this group better. i feel that this is one area where we women need to do better. We need to encourage one another and learn from one another. Not compete with each other.

I have been married for 27 years to my high school sweetheart, Terry. We have 3 grown daughters, age 22, 21 and 16. We also have a son a 5. Our oldest is married to a great Army man and they live in El Paso, TX. They have a daughter, our granddaughter. Our middle daughter runs her own restaurant. Daughter number 3 is learning to drive and is homeschooled, as well as our son. I love homeschooling. I am involved in a few ladies Bible studies and love it. Learning from other ladies is great.
Comment by Beth Wallstrom on November 20, 2010 at 4:14pm
We certainly do have a lot in common, Anne! There's a trend in just about every church to separate folks by age; it tends to limit how much we can learn from those older and younger than us. I remember the comment by one teenager who spent a summer working on a building project with a group of older Christians -- "I love old people!" If he had only worked with kids his age, he might have missed finding out the value of "old" friends.
