To celebrate her daughter Ariah's first birthday, actress and television personality Tamera Mowry-Housley is giving God the glory for her bundle of joy.
"I'm so grateful that God has chosen me to be your momma. You bring so much joy to my life," the co-host of "The Real" revealed in an Instagram post. "You exude God's love and grace already; just at 1. Can't wait to see so much more of what God has in store for our relationship."
The mother of two went on to reveal that she is learning a great deal from her 1 year old.
"Although I am destined to be your teacher," she wrote. "You have no idea how much you have taught me."
Earlier this year, the 38-year-old Christian actress and wife of Fox News correspondent Adam Housley, took to Instagram to prayerfully reflect about some of her parenting goals for 2016.
"Time flies by so fast in the midst of the blissful chaos of parenting.This year I'm learning to soak in every sweet moment and take a picture of it with my mind," she wrote. "Lord, thank you for the lil blessings you've given to me. Help me raise them according to your word and your glory. I'm so grateful for them and the family you've given me."
The actress knows first-hand just how much prayer can impact things in her daughter's life and revealed that one of her prayers concerning the child has already come true.
"You have to watch what you pray for!" Mowry-Housley previously told People magazine. "Ariah's a big girl, but I love the fatness. I love to show off her rolls and I dress her in rompers for summer. She has the chubbiest legs!"
The Christian actress has not held back from publicly gushing about her daughter from the very beginning.
"Those first four weeks, it's like Groundhog Day — changing diapers and they lay there like a big blob. The moment you get that smile back though, it's just all worth it," Mowry-Housley told People last year. "It makes me feel good as a mom, it's been so great."
After naming their daughter, the Housleys said they realized they had given her a faith-based name.
"It wasn't until after we had decided on Ariah Talea Housley that Adam and I learned the origin and meaning of both names — they couldn't be more appropriate for a family like ours whose faith is so very strong," Mowry-Housley previously wrote on her website. "Both Hebrew names,
Ariah means Lion of God and Talea means one who resembles the morning dew of Heaven. We couldn't have found names with a better meaning if we had tried."
