Gen X Moms Worth Getting to Know

There are amazing Gen X moms out there . . . You’re one of them, and so are your friends!

I’d like to share some of these “amazing moms” with blog readers. In honor of Mother’s Day, I’d like you to share your thoughts concerning your favorite friend(s). In the comment section, tell me why this person is special.

Next week, I will draw a name out of the hat. If your name is chosen, both you and your friend will receive my devotional book Mealtime Moments free!

So go ahead, you have permission to brag on your friend!

I'll start by "bragging" on my friend, Marjie. Marjie is one of the first teen moms I mentored through Teen MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers). She was seventeen and pregnant with her first baby. Right away, I knew I liked her.

In the last few years, Marjie has gotten married to Kenny, and has two more kids. She lives in Texas now, but we still enjoy talking on the phone. She has dedicated her life to Jesus and she's growing in her faith. Currently, she's also "growing" in other areas to. Marjie is in the process of getting her GED and she's being a "single mom" while her husband is in training for the National Guard. Things are challenging right now, but she's doing an AMAZING job. I'm sooo proud of her.

Happy Mother's Day, Marjie!

Aw, Tricia that's really sweet. I really needed that today... I am so happy you think so much of me, I believe we all need to be reminded sometimes that we are doing something right. Happy Mothers Day, Tricia and all you other mommies out there.

God Bless

Tricia I have to agree that Marjie is like no other mommy I know. She is so loving and devoted to her children and her husband! She is truly and inspiration to me which seems a little strange to me because I am her older sister. When I need a reality check or a quick reminder of how I can carry on all I have to do is call Marjie. She is always there for me and she always reminds me why I love being a mom. She is so wonderful with her children and I am so proud of her!! Someday I hope I can live up to her example. Tricia thank you for realizing how wonderful my baby sister is!!

Aw, guys you're gonna make me cry.

I would like to extend my fondest admiration for any of you single mommies out there on Mother's Day. I never realized what a challenge it was, until my dear husband and I faced this separation from eachother. Whether they have three children or one, you ladies are a strong breed, nerves of steel and the ability to juggle, juggle, juggle. That is truly amazing.

My amazing GenX friend is also my cousin. While we were growing up, Sharlyn was mostly just in mine and her sister's way - being that she was three years younger than us and all. I've watched Sharlyn marry and have a fabulous relationship with her husband, making the most of their ten-year marriage with vacations and projects - living life in spite of not being able to conceive a chile. And then...the remarkable. In 2004 Sharlyn & Chad became parents after thinking it might never happen - TWIN GIRLS! It was apparent from the very beginning that Chad & Sharlyn's relaxed, loving way with one another was instantly passed on to the girls. Never have I seen such a natural family, enjoying very obvious blessings. When it seemed things couldn't become any more blessed, guessed it! Macy Alexandra joined her big sisters this past winter. Needless to say, Sharlyn's life was forever altered when she became a first-time mother in her mid-thirties. But she's never been more beautiful or fulfilled. We've all enjoyed watching the miracle in her life unfold.

I would like to brag about my friend Heidi. She is a wonderful Christian mom, married to Scott with three very busy and active boys.

She homeschools the boys because of her Christian convictions. Heidi is teaching her boys her native German because she is taking them to Germany this summer to visit her parents.

Heidi is one of those friends, you do not talk to for a couple of weeks and then all of sudden, one of us calls and we have been thinking of each other.

I love her blunt personality. What would Jesus think? And our we following His teaching.

I love reading all these comments. I think all of us moms need a pat on the back once in a while . . .

The person I would like to brag about is my best friend and my sister. My sister desperately wanted a child and was blessed with a daughter (after a hard and life-threatening pregnancy). Her daughter is a huge light in her life! About a year ago, my sister was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The success rate of the risky surgery (without the tumor re-occuring) is low. The treatment makes her very sick. Still she keeps on with a positive attitude, setting a positive attitude for her daughter. She still works full-time (even though the doctors are stunned), keeps herself looking great and keeps a smile on her face...All that and always has time for her daughter. When I look at my daily challenges, I am so humbled. I wish that I could face everything with the happy, positive attitude that my sister does. She is an inspiration to me.
