About Growing Moms in God’s Word
Little did we realize when we attended an intensive retreat almost ten years ago that our paths were more than crossing – they were converging in an unlikely way! We were from opposite sides of the country and vastly different backgrounds. I (Sandra Maddox) am a busy women’s ministry leader and interior decorator from Southern California, married to an orthodontist. I (Ruth Schwenk) am a homeschooling mother of four, Pastor’s wife, founder of a popular blog for moms, TheBetterMom.com, and Author living in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
When we met we realized that we had similar passions and a deep kindred connection. Over the years, our friendship has grown, and our calling confirmed. Both of us are passionate about writing and speaking on a topic we have felt compelled to address for years – reaching and helping young mothers with Christ-centered teaching.
Repeatedly we have heard of the lack of simple teaching resources specifically for moms. We have also heard how desperate young mothers are from all walks of life and every corner of the country. The pressures and expectations of mothers today are crushing, if not impossible.
So, for the past three years we have been dreaming of ministry specifically to equip moms in learning God’s Word and we are thrilled to introduce our brand new ministry, Growing Moms in God’s Word.
We can hardly wait to get to know you here at Growing Moms!
