The Wisdom of a Godly Mother

I don't know how long they keep CaringBridge sites up after someone has died, so you may need to be quick.

I didn't know Laura Black... she was just a friend of a friend.  Well, she's much more than that actually; she's also an eternal sister in the bond of Christ and I now know that she was also a "mother in Israel" while in the flesh.  Yet I didn't have the joy of knowing her personally in this world.

But our common friend pointed me to her CaringBridge site which you can find (for the moment anyway) by clicking HERE.

Click on the "Journal" link at the top, and get to know the wisdom and wonder of Christ a little better.

I especially, especially, especially commend to you the 14 letters she wrote to her three little children.

The 14 letters are in a series Laura entitled "What I Want You to Know About...."  May our Lord bless these little ones as they grieve and grow.  And may these 14 letters bless you.  They have blessed me.

What I Want You To Know About:

  1. God
  2. Love
  3. Forgiveness
  4. Marriage
  5. College (okay, I have some reservations about this one)
  6. Making Decisions 
  7. Me & You
  8. Alcohol, Tobacco, & Drugs
  9. Death
  10. Careers
  11. Friendships
  12. Leaving the Christian Country Club
  13. Suffering for the Gospel
  14. Life


  1. Hi Tommy,
    We at CaringBridge don't remove anyone's Site. They are available as long as the family wants. The Site author may choose to remove Laura's Site at any time.
    Hope this helps answer your question,
    Michelle, CaringBridge E-communications Specialist

  2. Wonderful! Thank you, Michelle. May the Lord bless your work today.
