5 Meaningful Ways to Strengthen Your Relationship with Your Mom

When you look at your mother, what do you see?

Do you see the world’s best chef, a genuine friend, or a great provider? Is she your cheerleader, teacher, and responsible housekeeper?

While all mothers wear many hats, one of the most important roles they play is to give their children nurturing love.

Thankfully, there are some things you can do to thank them for all the love and sacrifice they have done and eventually, keep your bond strong!

Coach and Beyond Small Talk host LA Mumar, son of actress Coney Reyes, shares 5 meaningful ways to help you strengthen and improve your relationship with your mother:

1. Keep your relationship God-centered

Oh, how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! (Psalm 133:1)

A God-centered relationship with your mother means Jesus operates between the two of you. You speak and act with God’s love, joy, and kindness. It is a relationship where respect and grace abound.

“At the end of the day, we can have great relationships with one another despite our shortcomings, because we receive God’s love. We can share that love with our moms and with the people around us. I think that’s the most important part,” LA shared.

2. Do your best to understand one another

No one is perfect; people make mistakes – including your mother.

When all is said and done, you have the choice to forgive. Try to understand why they do what they do. Ask God to give you the power to see right through any differences and see your mother through the lens of love.

LA agrees, “Let’s have a deeper understanding of one another, let’s understand both ways. I am a son, and I am also a parent. Let’s love our parents and understand what they are going through.”

3. Communicate with each other

Good communication with your mother entails more than just talking. It is knowing when to talk when to listen, as well as what to say and how to say it.

Family Education suggests some points to keep in mind the next time you chat with your mom: respect her privacy and boundaries, listen objectively, and do not interrupt or use words that are accusatory.

4. Make a continuous effort to strengthen your relationship

As LA succinctly puts it, “Of course, this is a two-way street.”

Sometimes, it is not a lack of love that ruins relationships but a lack of effort. Thankfully, there are many ways to strengthen parent-child relationships, which means there are many ways to show constant love and appreciation to your mother!

5. Pray for God’s grace and strength to sustain you

The flesh and heart may fail, but God’s sustaining grace will hold you together.

This piece of truth comes in handy when you want to strengthen your relationship with your mother. Seek God and ask Him to give you a mouth that speaks life, hands that are gracious to comfort, and a heart that loves unconditionally.

“With the grace and strength God has given us, I am sure, relationships can flourish,” LA said.

Coney Reyes Shares 7 Tips to Avoid Heartbreaks

Heartbreaks could be incredibly painful, but they are avoidable.

As you spend some quality time with God this Holy Week, learn how to also love yourself more from actress-host Coney Reyes. Here are 7 tips she shared on how to avoid getting heartbroken. 

1. Honor your parents. Listen to them. 

Ephesians 6:1-3 says, “Children, obey your parents because you belong to the Lord, for this is the right thing to do. ‘Honor your father and mother.’ This is the 1st commandment with a promise. If you honor your father and mother, ‘things will go well for you, and you will have a long life on the earth.’”

Honor your parents by listening to their advice. Surely, they have gained wisdom from experience and their advice’s motive is to protect you from getting heartbroken.

2. Choose the right group of friends.

Don’t hang out with the wrong crowd. 1 Corinthians 15:33 says, “Bad company corrupts good character.”

Exercise wisdom and caution when choosing your friends.

3. Surround yourself with strong and upright people.

Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.” 

Surround yourself with strong and upright people who will tell you the truth face to face. Be accountable to them. 

4. Pray

Cry out to God in prayer. As Philippians 4:6 says, Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 

5. Read the Word. 

2 Timothy 3:16-17 says that “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 

6. Pray the Word. 

Know the Word of God by heart and pray the promises of God written in it. More than declaring good things for yourself, this will prevent you from being deceived. 

1 John 5:14-15 reminds us that “We are confident that He hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases Him. And since we know He hears us when we make our requests, we also know that He will give us what we ask for.” 

7. Live the Word. 

James 1:22 says, Do not merely listen to the Word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. You will live a blessed life if you hear the Word of God and obey it. Live out what you read about.

Coney admitted that she made a lot of ‘not-so-healthy’ and ‘not-so-godly decisions’ in the past that led to heartbreaks, but everything turned around when she accepted Jesus Christ in her heart.

“Though I was heartbroken, there were many people praying and fasting for me,” she said and quoted Romans 8:28, “God works things out for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.”
