Hi! I’m Pam Bailey, the voice behind Jesus and Motherhood.
Welcome to my online home!
Who Is Pam?
I’m a wife, daughter, sister, mother of 4 boys plus a cat and a dog. I’m a photographer, a homeschooler, organizing a non-profit, and a small business owner. I love the beach! I enjoy family time, lunch dates with my besties, chatting about The Church, time with Jesus, traveling, and my porch swing.
I am not an expert in anything. I am just an ordinary Southern girl who likes to talk. I was called, “motor-mouth-of-the-South” as a child. I am passionate about certain subjects and they often become the core of my conversations and writings.
Why did you start blogging?
I have loved writing since I was a child. Writing has helped me work through so many mental and spiritual battles. I can’t even begin to count how many letters, journal entries, social media post, blog post, etc. I have written that have never been published. Writing has just always been there. Even now, I find pen and paper are a magical combination.
God has also used me to speak life to those around me. Daily I pray that I would be a vessel for His Kingdom and speak truth in love that would pierce souls. In doing so, two of my friends encouraged me to blog. I laughed at that for so long. Finally, I took the plunge. Literally. Something clicked in my brain one evening and within 24 hours, Jesus and Motherhood was born.
What sets your soul on fire?
Preaching. I can’t even explain it. I love to preach God’s word. I love to share the truths that He has shown me. I love to be challenged by His Word and challenge others.
Marriage. I married my best friend. I married my soul mate. I married my help-mate. I find that so many married couples can’t say all of those things regarding their spouse. I have a huge burden for sharing God’s word about marriage and encouraging those around me to be the spouse that God desires for them to be. There is power in a strong marriage. A three-corded strand is not easily broken.
Racial Reconciliation Within The Church. I almost can’t speak or write about this one without tears. I was honored to serve as a Youth Pastor to a ministry with a great majority of young black men. Things in America are still not equal. You might disagree. However, I know from first hand experience that my incredible young black men and women were not always treated with the same respect and dignity as others. I was privileged to share in their stories. Stories of discrimination and prejudice. I strongly believe it is imperative that The Church serve as a voice against social injustice from a biblical standard. The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King so eloquently stated, “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” I will forever stand by that mantra and be a voice.
What do you do in your free time?
Free time? That sounds lovely! A house with four young boys is busy! I truly enjoy sitting on my porch swing. I could sit there for hours in the cool fall or warm spring air. I might pray, read the Word, or just nap. It becomes a moment of solitude. It also reminds me that life is short and I need to slow down and be still.
