The purpose of Titus 2 Moms is for veteran moms and wives to offer biblical encouragement, advice, wisdom, and counsel to “younger” moms and wives “to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be keepers of their home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands.”
Titus 2:4-5 is God’s design for helping keep Christian homes healthy, which is a goal of FBC and Fellowship at Home. There is a great need for women to have other women speak into their lives to offer biblical encouragement, advice, and wisdom, particularly in the areas of marriage and parenting. Many women do not have goldy, older women in their lives or families who can help them. They are looking to their sisters in Christ to stand in the gap and help them. This is God’s design as laid out in Titus 2 to strengthen Christian families.
Titus 2 Moms also provides an opportunity for women to form one-on-one relationships with other women. Within these discipleship or mentorship relationships, women can find support and encouragement as they walk through life together.
We meet on the first Wednesday of the month, September to June 7:00-9:00 PM at the homes of veteran moms. Each month, we look at one section of Titus 2:4-5 and discuss practical, real-life application of these scriptures to each of our unique families and lives through informal, fun, and meaningful discussions and questions.

Unexpected Blessings and Challenges of being forced to stay “busy in our homes“ (Titus 2:5)
We will use passages such as this one to frame our discussion. “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing...And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11, 14 NIV

"Being Self-controlled" (anger/conflict, control)
“Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.” - James 1:19-20
God instructs women in Titus 2:4-5 to be self-controlled. For many of us, we sometimes struggle with controlling our anger or frustration, especially towards those we love the most. Marriage and parenting can reveal all kinds of sinful responses on our parts when responding to life’s challenges. Let’s discuss ways we can be more self-controlled with our emotions, responses, and words.
