Welcome to My Blog

Greetings and welcome to my blog! My name is Lyndsay Lambert, and my heart's desire is for this blog to be an encouragement to younger women, as Paul directed in Titus 2:3-5.

To love, honor and . . . ?

To Love, Honor and ...?
Hmmm . . . the traditional wedding vows. Did you know that many women are opting to leave out the word obey these days?

I admit that I don’t much like the idea of applying that word to my marriage relationship. After all, we taught our children that obedience means to obey cheerfully, completely, and immediately. “Obey” makes me feel like a child who is, as my father used to say, “supposed to jump when I say and ask ‘how high?’ on the way up” (obviously not one of my favorite sayings of his 😛 )!

However, the Bible does say that a woman is supposed to submit to her husband (Ephesians 5:22).

Honestly, I like the concept of submitting a lot more than obeying.

If Not Supermom, Then What?

If not Supermom, then what?I don’t know about you, but when we were raising our children, I really wanted to be Supermom! I tried and tried, only to be disappointed in myself over and over again. But, as I mentioned last week, Supermom doesn’t exist!

During one of the times when I was beating myself up for not being the perfect mother, God gave me a special time in His word.

I share these with you in hopes that they can be an encouragement to you as they were to me.

How do I know you’ll never hear them? Because there’s no such person!

I know because I’ve met many women over the years. Home schooling moms. Christian moms. Non-Christian moms. Working moms. Stay-at-home moms. Some seemed to come close, but none of them has ever been Supermom. (See Don’t Compare Your Insides With My Outsides about those types of perceptions.)

I know that you can’t prove a negative, especially with anecdotal evidence, but I think I can make a pretty good case with the following point-by-point comparison:Continue Reading

Put On Your Oxygen Mask!

Put On Your Oxygen Mask
At a recent Bible study, a young mom told us that she knew she was supposed to put her husband and children first, but then she asked if it was wrong for her to feel like she needed some time alone, away from the demands of her family.

Last week I wrote that we need to get away from the selfishness encouraged by our culture—that it’s NOT all about me. Today I’d like to talk about the balance of that: just where do I fit on my priority list?

There will be times when we have to take care of ourselves in order to be able to take care of those whom God has put under our care.Continue Reading
