Mothers face a huge balancing act each and every day, and they are in need of tremendous support and encouragement. Author Josie Aenis, a women’s fellowship leader, saw this need and established an outreach program that focuses on moms at each stage of mothering, sharing the Word of God.
In It’s 4 uMom, Josie shares the details of the community outreach initiative she founded for her church, and she demonstrates how it can assist other churches in reaching the community for Christ and growing the congregation through building relationships. An evangelical tool, this step-by-step guide provides a description of the program and defines the key roles and responsibilities. It provides timelines and checklists for the major functions, and it gives samples of charts, forms, letters, sign-up sheets, meeting formats and themes, speaker ideas, mailing lists, flyers and newsletters.
A new method of reaching people for Christ, It’s 4 uMom was founded on the principles of prayer and direction from the Holy Spirit to help church women become soul winners—a positive outcome for both the church and today’s mothers.
As the featured speaker at two of the “mom’s events” Josie Aenis planned and hosted, I witnessed firsthand how well-organized, Christ-centered, and welcoming the events were to the women in the community. I was impressed with the attention to specific details, which resulted in the events flowing smoothly in a relaxed, upbeat atmosphere. The obvious focal point of all that transpired during the events was to encourage every woman in attendance.

It is with great joy that I recommend Its4uMom by Mrs. Josie Aenis. I have known her and the family for over a quarter of a century. “Wisdom is justified of her children”; her family is her best recommendation. Solomon also gives her a good word when he describes her with the words, “[s]he that winneth souls is wise.” Josie is the best lady soul-winner I have met in my 48 years of ministry.

I would highly recommend inserting “It’s 4 uMom” into your church outreach program. We recently starter it here at our Fellowship, and have already seen results. God’s Hand of blessing is on this outreach ministry, born in the heart of Josie Aenis, who not only understands the day to day struggles women face, but she also understands how to reach out to them in a unique way. “It’s 4 uMom” is an exciting, inviting way for your church to reach out to women on your local community.

As a private pediatrician and mother of a blended family of six children, I strongly endorse a program for moms to receive spiritual insight and inspiration, encouraging fellowship, and mentoring. It’s 4 uMom is a fresh opportunity for this type of camaraderie. It exhibits women journeying together as mothers and wives, seeking after God’s heart for the sake of their families. The beauty of Titus 2 is played out for mothers of all ages, and the Lord is glorified!
