A Different Wish This Mother’s Day

Title: A Different Wish This Mother’s Day

Description: Advertisements will have us believe the only sort of mothers worth celebrating are the oh-so-cheerful mums who cater to all of our needs without expecting anything back. So when we compare advertisement mums with ours and their “failings”, we think we can’t celebrate them.

But our mums, despite their own unspoken struggles, would have mothered us to the best of their abilities–even if the way they demonstrate their love might have rubbed us the wrong way or robbed them of the joy of actively participating in our lives.

No matter what our relationship with our mums look like, and whether or not they lived up to our “expectations”, God still wants us to honour them (Exodus 20:12). Our mums first gave us life, and by honouring them, we honour the Creator who breathes life into everything.

This Mother’s Day, let’s celebrate the mums God has put in our lives–and pray that God will breathe new life into our relationship with them.

Artist Feature


Jenny Jasmin is a visual artist, a senior high school art teacher, and a muralist. Teaching can be a challenging and time demanding job, but she does not let this hinder her passion for art. She knows that this is the best place for her to use her God-given gifts, experiences and to empower youths. It’s also her way of living out 1 Peter 4:10: “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”

She considers herself as a multidisciplinary artist, and spends most of her time producing various forms of art, assemblage sculptures, illustrations, participating in group exhibitions, and doing murals.
