Building Up Moms

Encouragement and Support for Christian Stay-at-Home Mothers

Start Here!

Are you a new mom wondering if you can actually juggle motherhood while managing a home?
Are you a mom who has had a few years of experience under your belt but need physical and spiritual encouragement?  


Encourage stay-at-home-mothers

Building Up Moms was started in July 2006 when I was pregnant with my 6th child. I had started out blogging at Building an Ark in Singapore more as a personal journal of my journey as a homeschooling, Christian stay-at-home-mother of many,

But then after about a year or so, the Lord said to write and encourage mothers. So, I started Building Up Moms, specifically targetted at Christian stay-at-home mothers.

In today’s modern culture, a stay-at-home-mother (SAHM) is highly underrated. But it need not be so. If you strongly feel that this is what the Lord has called you to be and be only, or even if it is to be only for a season, let us all shine for His glory!

Practical Tips and Tricks

If you need encouragement, regardless of which season or stage of life you are in this mothering journey, I hope that this blog can help.

know how tiring motherhood can be. I know how depressing it can get trying to maintain a decent home when you have little children around. I also know how privileged we are to be able to stay home and raise our children. And most of all, I know that with God, nothing is impossible!

Biblical principles

I also share biblical principles that should guide us as we mother our children. Biblical principles should undergird all our decisions and actions. And that is what I hope to share here.

I have been writing about my journey for a long while and I have also changed a lot in these 19 years as a mother. But biblical principles are evergreen! And I most certainly have seen good fruit when I adhered to them and not so good fruit when I administered my own wisdom.

Not an expert but a fellow traveller

But, please remember, I am no expert. If I ever come across as that, usually in my earlier posts when I had less children and lots more ego, I apologise. But having had this many children (7, in case you didn’t know 😉 ) and having lived through many of the seasons of motherhood and, am still in the throes of it, including being on the cusp of launching older children into the world, I have gained some experience and battle scars from mothering worth sharing! If nothing else, think of this blog as me being with you while you pour out your woes over a cup of coffee or tea or milo!

Christian content

ALL mothers are welcomed here. Whether you are a full-time, part-time, married, single, Christian or non-Christian.


I am unabashedly a Christian and this blog is targetted at Christian, stay-at-home mothers. And so, some of my posts will contain faith statements. But there are also posts that do not. I am just putting this out here so that it is out in the open.
