Your melancholic temperament has much to offer your children and family and here’s why. This is installment 3 of 4 of the four temperaments and how each of them bring life to their family.
If you are not the Strong + Deliberate mom, but know someone who is, take the time to share this post with them to give them encouragement in their motherhood journey!
You are a woman of strong convictions.
An introvert by nature, you have all manner of emotions, thoughts, and feelings going on inside, but are not quick to express them. You don’t often lose your temper and think long and hard before acting. As a mom this serves you well because one incident doesn’t push you over the edge.

Not that you are overly patient, but you process things thoroughly, and are neither rash nor impulsive.
A researcher by nature the Strong + Deliberate mom has great plans for her family. You love to set goals, determine how to meet them, and put your family on the right path.
Your goals line up with your values, principles, and beliefs, and your inner passion helps push everyone towards these goals and dreams.
You don’t abide sloppy effort. You want things done to a high standard, and you work hard to instill in your children the idea that “a thing worth doing is worth doing well.”
Your daily actions and choices align with your core values, and you don’t change habits or hobbies quickly. Your children will appreciate your constancy, steadiness, and strength. When striving for something you want (for yourself or your family) you can be tenacious.
Your family will long benefit from how hard you work to make their plans become a reality.
The Strong + Deliberate mom is well organized. This may mean very tidy or well-organized clutter, but either way everything is in its place. You likely have a good chore or cleaning system, and expect others in the home to adopt your own high standard so the home can be a place you are at peace.
You are self-sacrificing and loyal to those you love. You prefer a few close friends, tried and true, that you can rely on and who believe and live similarly to you.
Your children are certain of your love and devotion to them and derive comfort from this. Because you are a sensitive person, you are also thoughtful towards others in your words and deeds, particularly toward those who have proven themselves to you.
A gatherer of information by nature, you make informed decisions for your family. You are not afraid to research, ask questions, and spend ample time gathering everything needed to make the best decision or choice for yourself and family.
Moving the decision into action can be tough for you, but once it’s done your family will enjoy the fruits of such preparation and thought.
You are attentive to detail.
You are compassionate and hold strong beliefs.
Your children will be well-grounded, more deliberate, and hard working because of you.
“Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.
She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.
She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.”
Proverbs 31:11, 13, 16, 18
The Strong + Deliberate mom’s family are blessed by her strength, dignity, and ability to persevere and weather storms. She is a lighthouse to those who love her.
