Real Moms in the Bible

(Non-Proverbs 31)
Ever read about the Proverbs 31 Woman?  That passage can bring every woman to her knees.  This is precisely why I am so glad that the Bible gives us pictures of other mothers and their life struggles to see how God can bless in all situations.

Wife of Adam, Mother of Cain, Abel, Seth

II. Sarah – The Great Faith Mother - Exodus 2:1-4
Wife of Abraham, Mother of Isaac

Wife of Amram, Mother of Aaron, Moses, and Miriam

IV. Bathsheba – The Redemptive Mother – II Samuel 12:24
Wife of David, Mother of Solomon

V. The Widow of Zarepath– The Single-Parent Mother –

VI. Rizpah – The Love-the-Unlovable Mother -
