1. There is so much wisdom in this post. I think the most important thing you are doing is being their mom not their best friend. I think there are alot of parents who try to be the best friend instead of the role of mom and dad. Kudos to you both and God will honor you because you desire to honor Him.

  2. This is a great post with a lot of insightful reminders! And I love the pics… Ha! Thank you for sharing. It will give me the strength to stand up to my own little guy!

  3. Great post. I think it’s normal to feed their selfish hearts when it’s your first kid or two and the more kids you have, the more you realize that just isn’t going to fly anymore. I have 5 kids but 4 who live at home so I know what you mean.

    This is a daily effort…We have a saying (which I stole from a book) “Enough is enough for us.” I tell my kids that the only reason God gives us more than enough, more than our simple needs, is so we can share with others.

    • Thank you for sharing, Blessedmom! I may steal that as well. What a great way to put it! It is definitely a daily effort, one that God give us more than enough grace for as moms, thankfully. There are days I am only able to continue being patient with their little sinful hearts because of His love and strength in me. Blessings!

    • Gale, thanks…you are not alone! Not to mention so many other moms, God is with you! He is strong when we are weak. I also look forward to “more to come,” in the sense that I am still on this journey…sharing as I go. Can’t wait to see what God does in my family in this journey He’s got us walking.
