6-Week Series: Against All Odds

Sermon Illustrations

According to a survey by the Ladies Home Journal:

o About a third of all mothers spend ten or more hours per day with their children; another 47 percent devote four to nine hours daily. Eighty-two percent consider at least half of their parenting hours “quality time.”

o Almost every mother polled (98 percent) says she has a close relationship with her children.

o Ninety-nine percent say their fondest hope for their children is for them to be good people. They’d also like their kids to someday have happy marriages (97 percent), successful careers (79 percent) and children of their own (75 percent). Just 19 percent want their offspring to be rich.

o No mother feels she’s doing everything perfectly. Three quarters wish they could give their children more guidance and advice. Sixty-nine percent said they’d also like to give their kids more attention. And nearly 80 percent of moms with full-time jobs wish they could give more of both.
