Reflection: Our passage today mentions grandmother Lois and mother Eunice. It reminds me of how important our mothers and grandmothers are in our faith lives.
When I think of my grandmothers, I think of women of faith. They were regular church attenders, served the church in many ways, sang in the choir, and shared their faith with me. I have lots of books and Bible stories that my grandmother gave me as a child that I now use with my own children.
When I think of my mother, I think of a woman of faith. She is still heavily involved in the life of the church and is passing her faith to her grandchildren (my kiddos) but sharing Bible stories and making sure they go church regularly.
As you think about your faith today, think of the women in your life that help you grow in your relationship with God. And say a little prayer to God in thanksgiving for them! --Chad Hershberger
