Mothers hold an important place in the Bible, from Eve, the first mother, to Mary, the mother of Jesus. While in many instances the Bible focuses on the actions of men, the mothers are not forgotten. Even as genealogies trace the line from father to son, it is still clear how important mothers are, starting with the mention of the first mother in the Old Testament, “male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27).

Lessons Learned from Parenting
No one is born a parent. Coming into this role can be a difficult transition, and there are so many lessons that a new parent can learn. If you are actively seeking to look at the lessons learned from other parents you are on the right track.
My story in the role of a mother began 30 years ago when God blessed me with my first son. At that time I lived in Kyrgyzstan. We didn’t have computers, the Internet, or Google. I learned how to take care of my firstborn son from my mom, mother in-law, and books. Even with today's availability of resources, motherhood is a journey. Both the new mother and the child learn about each other every day. As learning occurs, a mother adapts to her child’s needs, and so responds accordingly.
