I was truly excited to hear that my next product for review as a Gabby Mom was the Eternal Encouragement magazine. Don’t get me wrong, I love the email subscriptions, but there just is something about being able to have a great read in my hand that allows me to actually turn the page.
I opened the magazine and began reading at the first page and I didn’t make it through the first article before I began taking notes and heading to my computer to share quotes as facebook status updates and twitter tweets.
Every article was filled with God’s Word and it magnified His grace and love and pointed us to a true and real relationship with our God through His Son Jesus Christ.
There were very few advertisements in the magazine. Those that were in it were truly helpful products focused on growing in Christ. As a fairly new homeschool mom I found the advertisements for curriculum and website referrals very helpful. I think I have just about looked into every one of them and marked them in my favorites on my computer.
As I read through this magazine I was encouraged as a believer, as a woman, as a wife, as a mother, as a teacher. It is a magazine that I will not through in the trash when I am done, but it will be added to my bookshelf as a reference from which to pull information.
In the very last article in the magazine Lorrie Flem the editor of Eternal Encouragement Magazine and More had this to say, My quick description to describe our ministry to others is this, “We encourage women to trust and obey God, stay home, embrace obeying their husbands, consistently and lovingly train their children, and put their first fruits into their own homes.”
If this ministry description is a standard for your own life, then Eternal Encouragement magazine will help you reach and maintain that standard. It’s well worth the money for the subscription and the time to read.
Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior,
not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine,
teaching what is good,
so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands,
to love their children,
to be sensible, pure, workers at home,
kind, being subject to their own husbands,
so that the word of God will not be dishonored.
Eternal Encouragement Magazine & more is an excellent example of this Scripture verse being fleshed out. Women teaching women to love God, to love their husbands, and to love their children so that the Word of God will not be dishonored or the testimony of Christ maligned. May we all as women work on building each other up and encouraging one another with the Truth of the Word not our own opinions… may we be women, wives, and mothers who walk in a manner worthy of our calling always growing in the grace and knowledge of our God.
