An Easy Guide To Praying For Your Child

Your relationship with your child is a beautiful journey. There is no doubt that prayer has an essential and important purpose in this journey. Prayer is simply the way You communicate with God about the intricacies of your relationship with your child.

What Your Hands Mean To Your Children

When I think of the word embrace, I think about gripping or holding onto something, a welcoming hug, acceptance, drawing closer to. When I think about embracing my role as a mom, I think about all the challenges I have and continue to accept, relying on God to strengthen me and give me wisdom to do all that motherhood requires. I also consider all of those little moments I bring my children in close to my heart to remind them that nothing will ever separate my love for them. No matter what I face as a mom, I embrace it. Not always gracefully, there are times when tears come with a little resistance in my heart, but that isn’t because I don’t want to be a

Please Don’t Check Out

It was late in the evening. We had just finished putting our oldest children to bed. I left the baby in his crib hoping he would be okay for just a little while, so that I could squeeze in a few minutes in the bath. I turned on the hot water and sank down deep. It was the first time all day that I had paused, to take a deep breath. I was still adjusting to having 3 children. I didn’t know what normal looked like yet, but I was trying to find it, getting closer every day. I closed my eyes to relax, and right at that moment, I could hear the cries of my newborn calling for me. I knew my husband was close

They are doing what is natural to them, they want to be silly and have fun, and that they are also learning behavior right now. He also mentioned

Preschool Is Not For The Faint-Hearted | Vlog #22

Paint. Everywhere. Bright bold colors splattered and smeared on walls, on clothes, in hair, in my hair, across the table, up their arms, on the bottom of their feet… It doesn’t matter how prepared I am. The wipes are in arms reach. Yet, it gets everywhere. Paint, markers, kinetic sand, play dough, and glitter…oh the glitter! The control freak inside of me swells up, wanting so bad to just take over. But something important is happening here and I need to let it happen. My kids are learning. My kids are exploring. My kids are experiencing the gifts God has given them and the talents He has entrusted to them. Preschool may not be for the faint-hearted – it will definitely require patience, especially if
