How would your life be different without your mom? For me, deep gratitude and much reflection ensues from a
ny attempt to answer this question. I can say with full certainty, as could most, that my life would be drastically different were it not for the love and influence of my mother.
Without Linda Stocker, I wouldn’t be the father I am today. She has always selflessly put the interests of her husband and children above her own. She has truly loved me unconditionally, and now I have this same love for my children.
Without Linda Stocker, my marriage wouldn’t be so strong. Her relationship with my dad is a beacon for thousands and will always be a shining example for my wife, Trina, and I.
Without Linda Stocker, I would surely be floundering spiritually. I know of no one else who trusts in the Lord with all her heart like my mother does. Her public and private life are one in the same as she truly lives her faith every moment of every day.
Without Linda Stocker, there would be no Scripture Lullabies (or at least I wouldn’t be the one doing it). Since I was five years old, she required me to diligently practice piano every day. I hated it and showed no promise of ever being accomplished, but she pushed nonetheless. Also, throughout my childhood, she would teach my sisters and I at least two Scriptures a week until we memorized complete chapters. Of course I never would have thought her encouragement and commitment would serve me so well in life and in my career.
This Mother’s Day, I hope my mom can be an inspiration to other moms who trudge tirelessly, often thanklessly through each day trying desperately to better the lives of their children. I’ll forever be grateful for the monumental effort my mom and so many others make. Thank you mom. I love you.

As we transition from Summer to Fall, it’s good to take some time to reflect on the ever-changing seasons of our lives. Often, we settle into a routine or comfort zone that suits us just fine until something completely unexpected happens, jolting us into a new season of life. God’s Word encourages us to be content in all things.
Psalms 118 says, “This is the day that the LORD has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.”
Each day, every day, it would do our souls well to rejoice in the knowledge of Christ and the blessings He has so graciously poured out on us. We all trudge through difficult times, but if we can learn to keep our eyes on Jesus, placing our hope and our future in His hands, we will see the tough times as merely temporary. In this context, it’s much easier to find joy and peace in each season, each day, each moment.
