Who's Your Mama?
Bynoe, mother, author, and founder of WorkingMomsMentor. Authentic motherhood is expressed in the numerous choices that each mother makes daily, monthly and yearly in relation to themselves and their children. Even in well-intentioned reverence of mothers, there can be an unintentional diminishing of the fullness of their person. The collection, as Bynoe notes, aims to broaden the traditional notion of motherhood and make visible those stories that are so often left out of the conversation.
She explores her early years as a writer, including the role of Langston Hughes in her artistic life, and how she's grown into the respected novelist that she is today. Little ones have grown up. People have moved. Relationships have ended and others have begun. It remains.
Have You Heard Of Doris Troy? Remembering Mama Soul
In the day-to-day, business-as-usual world, the absence is less felt. God gave us the ability to remember.

- Remembering Mama.
He created us and encourages us to remember from Old Testament times. Take a look at Esther God designed us to remember, and He encourages us to do so.
God wishes for His people to use the memories He gave us to remember. As I remember my mom, I think of the introvert that she was. When she met my dad, she was a very shy, high school graduate, renting a room from an elderly woman in a small rural town about 40 miles from her home. She had no car nor did she have a license to drive , no family nearby, and no friends in this new community except for her coworkers. Even as an adult, she preferred solitude to social functions.
She was a Bible scholar. A lifelong learner who devoured the scriptures and learned everything she could. Her dream was to go to Bible college, but with a houseful of siblings, there was no extra money for the firstborn to attend college. However, her thirst for knowledge remained. That actually brought her out of her shell a bit, as it led to many opportunities to lead Bible studies and teach Sunday school classes. And, God gave her the desires of her heart when — thirty five years after her high school graduation — she graduated from Friends Bible College with a degree in Pastoral Counseling.
Remembering Mama’s last lesson
And, that led to even more opportunities when my mom became an introverted pastor. But as I remember my Mama today, I think of what was constant. She actually penned part of her obituary, giving me instructions to include her words when that time came. Sometimes He has spoken through His Word — the Bible. Thanks for the chance to re-read that great post, Tamara. I hope you are filled with love today. Big hugs to you! Hi Jeanne.
