TTM #64: Supporting moms with kids (when you don’t have any or yours are older)

on January 23, 2019 by Jami Balmet 4 comments

I got a great question this week for the podcast. Liz is asking how she can support her friends with kids. This is a terrific one for everyone to listen in to about how we can come along side and support each other!

Liz asks: “I love all of your podcasts! I am not a mom but I have lots of friends that are mothers. I try to be supportive, but am wondering what things others have done to show support and love to you that have been most helpful? I am always looking for new ideas and ways to be supportive beyond the typical taking of a meal, offering to babysit and providing supportive listening.”

  • Don’t wait for them to ask
  • Don’t be offended if she says no!
  • Ask her what you can be praying about for her. 
  • Don’t assume you know how hard it is, etc.
  • Just be there for her, invite her to get her nails done with you, offer to come over and watch a movie with her when her husband is working late, etc. Treat her like a friend who just happens to have kids!!

  1. Hi Jami! I heard a preaching that reminded me of what you said regarding praying for others. Sometimes we think that to witness to someone else we have to preach them the basics of the Bible in one shot- nope! Sometimes simply stopping someone to ask them what they need prayer for is enough to plant the seed. I’m not a mom, nor are any of my friends, but it’s awesome to have this knowledge beforehand.

  2. I was 3 months post partum with my 3rd when someone paid for an exterminator when we had ants. She called them and arranged it all and paid. And I didn’t have ants crawling all over my house.

  3. This was so helpful and encouraging! Thank you! Can’t wait to hear what others say so I can add to the ideas! A fellow mom found out that my kids were down with a cold, and she offered to bring us medicine so we wouldn’t have to go out to the store. I had some already, but I thought that was so thoughtful and tucked her idea away for the future.
