15 Ideas to Celebrate Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day is a special day to honor the mothers in our lives. It is a time to show appreciation for all they do for us and remind them how much we love them. As Christians, we can celebrate Mother’s Day in a way that honors God and His Word.
Here are 15 ideas to get you started
— Read a Bible verse together. Many Bible verses speak to the importance of motherhood. One of my favorites is Proverbs 31:10-31, which describes the qualities of a virtuous woman. Reading this passage together can help you appreciate everything your mom does for you.
— Write a letter or card. A handwritten note is a personal and meaningful way to express your love and appreciation for your mom. Take time to write her a letter or card, telling her everything you love about her.
— Spend time together. One of the best ways to show your mom how much you care is to spend time with her. Go for a walk, have lunch together, or sit and talk. Whatever you do, make sure it’s something that you both enjoy.
— Give her a gift. A gift is a tangible way to show your mom how much you appreciate her. It doesn’t have to be expensive or elaborate. Even a small gift, such as a bouquet of flowers or a framed photo, can show her how much you care.
— Cook her a meal. Cooking a meal for your mom is a thoughtful way to show her how much you love her. She’ll appreciate the effort even if you’re not a great cook.
— Make her breakfast in bed. This is a classic Mother’s Day gesture that is sure to make her smile.
— Host a Mother’s Day brunch or lunch for her friends and family. This is a great way to celebrate her with those who love her most.
— Make a donation to her favorite charity in her name. This is a meaningful way to show your support for her causes.
— Clean the house. One of the best ways to show your mom how much you appreciate her is to take some of the work off her shoulders. Clean the house, do the laundry, or take out the trash. She’ll be so grateful for your help.
— Surprise her with a gift basket. Fill it with her favorite things, such as snacks, books, or magazines.
— Take her out for a day of pampering. This could include a trip to the spa, a manicure, a pedicure, or a new hairstyle.
— Stay in and watch a movie together. This is a great way to relax and cuddle up on the couch.
— Take her out to lunch. Taking your mom out to lunch is a great way to show her how much you care. It’s a chance to spend time together and enjoy a meal together.
— Go to church together. Going to church together is a great way to celebrate Mother’s Day as a family. It’s a time to worship God and to thank Him for the gift of motherhood.
— Say, “I love you.” Sometimes, the simplest things are the most meaningful; tell your mom how much you love her. She’ll cherish those words forever.
These are just a few ideas to help you celebrate Mother’s Day in a way that honors God and His Word. I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

You will be with me too. And I treasure your friendship along this journey too my dear friend.
Thanks for the ideas! My mom is in the process of downsizing and getting rid of things, so some of these gifts of time will be best.

You’re welcome sweet friend.
Great ideas! Both of our moms are no longer with us, but as a mom, I would love any of these things–espcially church together, a meal together, and time together in some way.
