Super Mom Moments

Brag on your great mom! Have your husband or kids enter you and answer this question- What moment made you believe your mom/wife was a superhero?

All moms create special memories for their kids and every mom has to be creative and works hard to create these memories. Share your story about that special memory.

Here are a few examples:
- My mom made a fort in the living room and we played together all afternoon.

- One rainy day my mom invented the indoor Olympics to keep us busy

- My mom stayed up all night with me to help me finish my school project

Multiple moms will be acknowledged per day. Starting May 1st through May 10th, 5 moms will be acknowledged on air throughout each day. One mom per shift will be selected. Roughly at the following times - 7am - 10am - 1pm - 4pm - 7pm. We will have 40 moms who are specifically featured. Listen for your name!

Each entry will be emailed to the mom in a special digital “picture frame” they can print out and give to their mom on Mother’s Day.

Deadline to enter was Thursday, May 9th at 5pm
All other contest rules apply.

Moms we're acknowledging today:

Antoinette to her supermom, Maryann-
The first time I realized my mom was a supermom when I was in the first grade (I am 52 now)! I was at school one very snowy, winter day before we got out for Christmas break and my teacher announced that we had a special treat for our read-a-book time. Unbeknownst to me, my mom, Maryann (and my 5 & 2 year old sisters) came to my class and acted out, in costume and with props the story "Twas the Night Before Christmas". My mom made everything including the stocking caps with lollipops taped to it for the "sugar plums dancing in their heads" and a decorated Red Flyer wagon for a sleigh. My mom dressed up as each character in the story, including Santa Claus and had my principal holding a red lollipop by her nose for the "red-nosed reindeer" as they "drove out of site". It was the most amazing thing! I was the most popular kid at school that day! I will never forget this most cherished memory of My
Supermom!

Margaret to her supermom, Hallie-
Hallie Phillips, my mother-in-law just celebrated 70 years of marriage and is still ironing Dad's white shirts and creasing them! She always keeps a good attitude and says that "every day is a holiday"! She is truly a Prov. 31 Woman and her husband and children call her "Blessed".

Taylor to her supermom, Trish-
When I was 10 my parents got divorced. I've lived with my mom since then (almost 10 years) and she's always been my rock. She is my absolute best friend. Going through my teen years were rough, but my mom stuck with me and showed me just how much she loves me. She's paying my way through college currently. I've seen her go through many trials, and she always comes out stronger. I hope I can be half the mother she is one day. She has the most beautiful smile and laugh and I am so proud to say I look so much like her. She prays with me and for me and keeps me in line when I stray. I love my mom to the moon and back, twice. She's my sunshine.

Cathy to her supermom, Claudia-
I've always thought my mom was the best because of what she had to go through with me when I was a baby. I was born with a life-threatening birth defect. She was only 21 when I was born, and had to be very strong for me. When my son was born, and I could relate to that motherly type of love, I realized what she did for me. It was extremely painful for her to watch me go through what I had to go through. I have had to have several plastic surgeries and have had to endure more than most children. The worst part of my condition occurred when I was just a baby. I don't remember that painful part of my life, but I know that it is something that my mom will never forget. She's never complained about it or shown any fear, and she and my dad have always done their best to see that I had what I needed. I believe that I am alive today because of the love and nurturing of both of my parents. My mom is my superhero, and she is the greatest example of love and selflessness that I know.

Shelly to her supermom, Carolyn-
I realized Mom is a super hero when Dad was sent to Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm. During that time, Mom weekly contacted each wife of every airman in Dad's unit to see how they were and if they needed any help. She truly listened and offered compassion and hope. She warmly received wives and their families over for dinners. She took them to doctor's appointments and took care of kids when needed. She continued to volunteer at church and at schools and to be there for neighbors. Yet, my sister, brother and I never felt squeezed in to her schedule. She was first and foremost Mom. She made our birthdays, holidays and every day full of wonderful memories of love, unity, peace and joy. Mom's service to individual hearts was seen throughout my childhood and continues today. While growing up, Mom and Dad had single airmen over for holidays so they were not alone. Today Mom and Dad welcome former airmen and cadets into their home for meals and a place to stay. She continues to shine the light of Jesus in a way that makes each person feel treasured. And, her family knows they are prized.
