Let deeds, not words, be your adorning.
– Baha’u’llah, The Persian Hidden Words
As mothers, there are so many precious opportunities for us to serve our families and our wider community. When our children are young, it is also an important time to establish habits such as prayer and respect for other family members.
Our posts under “Doing” revolve around serving your family and the wider community. Ideas should be tried in a cycle of planning, action, and reflection. It is important to remember that what works for one family may not work for another, and it is also true that what works at one point in time may not work later. The important point is that you are learning through doing and building your capacity for service.
We will address aspects of “Doing” in the following categories:
Baha’i Family Life including posts about:
- Creating a Spiritual Home Environment
