I think a lot about parenting and family. And truly next to our relationship with God, it's the most important thing.
Every day as a parent, I mess up and I have victories. It's always a roller coaster. I believe in my children and I believe God has created them for a special purpose - and I know it's my job to walk alongside them and cheer them on, support them, love them and model Jesus for them. I feel overwhelmed sometimes with that. All the blogs and books that I read, well they help, but in the end I have to trust God that his hand is on their lives and that he will help me (and my husband) as we parent and lead... it's our job!!!
I pray that my children look back and outside of all the fun times, and "things", etc., that they can also look back at a spiritual legacy as the biggest part of their life... the influence that intertwines and connects all their experiences. A faith journey combined with their family journey.
Let's love every moment that we have with our children - and let's do ALL we can to be great examples of Jesus that they can follow...
