Temi from ‘Christian Mommas’ Blog

Blogging (through WordPress) has given me the opportunity to read, follow, and interact with many other bloggers all over the world. It’s been neat to connect with people in this way.

To pick up encouragement along this journey and also dish it out is such a two way blessing.

One of the first blogs I began following when I started on WordPress a few years ago belongs to Temi who writes at christianmommas.com

The name (almost) says it all but while you may think “oh well I’m not a mom yet…or my kids are already out of the house…I’m a dad…etc” don’t let the name keep you from checking Temi’s blog out! It’s packed with humble encouragement and love; and though the focus is geared toward Christian parenting there’s life lessons of faith tucked away that are applicable for anyone and all life experiences — momma or not!

Christianmommas.com was created by Temi but she also has a team of other like-minded women sharing their testimonies of God’s mercy and grace through motherhood on her blog as well. Their posts really are a charming treasure filled with hope pointing to Jesus!

Last Summer I had the chance to read a book authored by Temi — ‘A Christian Mother’s Creed’ available on Amazon here. Such a great read where she shares how her experience as a U.S. Army veteran helped shape her dedication to be the best Christian mother she could possibly be. She meshes the idea of life as a soldier with life as a Christian mother —comparing the two with Christian values and Biblical principles, knowing that this world is full of battles but striving for kingdom-bound children nevertheless — trusting God has the ultimate victory already! When we parent and do life with Him we get to experience that truth firsthand.

Recently Temi expanded her creative talent by opening an Etsy shop (Shop Christian Mommas) where she is selling artwork in the form of greeting cards, wall art, phone screensavers, and more. On her blog she featured a giveaway last month and after commenting on her post she let me know I had won her giveaway in the form of a $25 gift card to her shop.

Here’s what I chose from her shop:

5×7 inch devotional cards…to remind me of God’s goodness.

The phrases on the devotional cards reflect a Bible verse and can work as conversation starters as I hang them up around my house. And since a Bible reference is noted on each one it also encourages me to look those verses up and study them deeper!

I hope you’ll check out Temi’s blog, Etsy shop, or her book!! This lovely lady is on a roll for His purpose and there’s no stopping her!! Have a wonderful rest of your week and sweet blessings!!

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. —Proverbs 31:30-31

About For His Purpose~ My name is Alicia and I'm a thirty-something year old who loves Jesus. Only through God’s amazing grace and mercy I have been redeemed from past regret and shame. Reading His word has allowed me to look past Satan’s forceful lies, to see myself for who Christ says I am in Him. Through writing I have learned why I made the choices I made in my younger years and I now have a better understanding of why I desire to love God like crazy these days. Despite my daily failures, God remains faithful always. I am reassured of His unconditional love for me by every ink-drop spilled out on paper, each committed prayer as I cry out to Him, and deep understanding reflected through reading His word as truth. Yes keeping a blog will make me vulnerable to others’ opinions- there will be some who don’t understand, some who may criticize or judge, but on the other hand if just one piece expressed through my writing grabs someone’s attention and directs them to God, then pouring out my heart in a blog for the world to read is worth it. I choose to glorify Him alone through words streaming across a glowing screen. And it wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t reveal the fact that I’m incredibly quirky; I’m my loving husband’s best friend, my vivacious kids’ craziest cheerleader and spiritual trainer (3 John 1:4). I love anything farmhouse and rustic style. I think cupping a warm coffee mug in the palm of my hands is more satisfying than the contents within. I share a common obsession with my husband for the mountains, but I would (without a doubt) settle for waves crashing against my legs at the Atlantic Ocean just as well, and I almost always have a Yorkie curled up on my lap while writing. *All photos are photographed by forhispurpose.blog and therefore may not be stored or photocopied in any manner.

  1. What a beautiful tribute to Temi’s excellent blog and her work and her heart. I love the things in her shop too, but I don’t have a printer and am not sure how it would work therefore. I’m not so tech-literate as some. Thank you
