He will tend his flock like a shepherd. He will gather the lambs in his arms. He will carry them in his bosom, and gently lead those that are with young.
The mission of Rise Like a Mother is to be Jesus to new mothers by connecting generations of women in the Church. Jesus often ministered to people’s physical needs before their spiritual ones, a practice we would like to model in this ministry.
Rise Like a Mother will pair new mothers with older sisters in the church who will come into the home for two hours once a week to hold the baby. Volunteers for this ministry are called “Deborahs” based on the story of Deborah rising like a mother for the children of Israel found in the book of Judges. The Deborah will sing, pray over, and read to the baby, giving the mother a short reprieve to do something at home that makes her feel refreshed.
