Make a list of famous mothers from the Bible. Eve, Naomi, Hannah, Elizabeth, Mary, Rebecca, Sarah and many others come to mind. You can tell each of the Biblical stories and then discuss how our own mothers are in many ways like the Biblical mothers.

Game Idea
Place the name of a Biblical mother on the back of each person. Each person must identify the Biblical mother placed on his/her back by asking others yes/no questions. Some of these mothers may be too difficult for some youth.

Game Idea
See how many of the Biblical mothers kids can correctly identify from the descriptions. Make it a competition between two teams.

She was the Mother-in-law of Ruth. Ruth accompanied Naomi to her homeland saying ‘Where you go, I will go, where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.’ She guided her daughter in law into a marriage with Boaz.

She was the wife of Elkanah. She was childless for many years, but after much prayer, became mother to Samuel the prophet. She dedicated him to the Lord and brought him a linen ephod every year. After Samuel, she became mother to three more sons and two daughters. 1 Samuel 1; 2:1, 21

She was the Mother of John the Baptist, who prepared the way for the Lord. She was Mary’s cousin and a godly woman who in her old age, God allowed her to give birth.

She is the wife of Abraham and gave birth to Isaac when she was over 100 years old. Isaac was the father of Jacob, the father of the twelve tribes of Israel.

She is the Mother of Jesus and it often remembered for her answer faith when she asnwered the
angel Gabriel. ‘I am the Lord’s servant. May it be to me as you have said.’ (Luke 1:38)

She was the mother of Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived. She is mentioned in Jesus’ family tree – Matthew 1:6 -‘whose mother had been Uriah’s wife.’

She is known as the “Mother of mankind” because she was the very first mother.

She ensured that the more righteous son, Jacob, receive the patriarchal blessing from his father, as the Lord intended (Genesis 27).

Her son Hezekiah was a king who did what was right in the eyes of the Lord. 2 Chronicles 29:1, 26:5 , 2 Kings 18:2

When the Pharoah an gave order to kill all the baby boys of the Hebrews, she hid Moses for three months. “By faith Moses’ parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child, and they were not afraid of the king’s edict” (Hebrews 11:23). (See also Exodus 1-2)

She was the mother of Joseph who had a coat of many colors.

She was the wife of King Asa and was the mother and godly influence of Jehosaphat. It is said that “he did what was right in the eyes of the Lord” 1 Kings 22:42, 2 Chronicles 20:31

She was the mother of Josiah who succeeded his father as king when he was only eight years old. He reigned for almost 31 years. Josiah’s father was a wicked king but Josiah was godly, again attesting to the influence of a godly mother. 2Kings 22:1,2

Use these example of Biblical Mothers for Mother’s Day or at another opportunity to recognize mothers.
