What do I do after a momentous weekend with hundreds of women at a mom heart conference? I sleep extra late, I take my boys out for a meal, I take a hot bubble bath and then I take a nap and finally end the day watching a spy show while eating chocolate chip cookies. I have taken a sore throat with me from the hotel, so I am pampering myself. Tomorrow, I will begin to get back to normal.
So, a number of sweet friends sent me messages, voxers and texts and I decided to let some of them share with you what most stood out at the conference and thoughts they are going to keep with them in their homes this year.
"Say no to your children. Teach them to honor you now so that they will be able to accept a "no" from God and honor His direction in their lives when they are older. If they learn to obey you now, they will be prepared to obey Him when they are older."
"Your life is not your own, but God wants you to own your life for His glory."
""When a challenge or test comes my way, I will respond out of what I have invested deeply in, all of my life. I need to constantly refresh myself in the Word so that my well is deep enough for whatever I face.”
"Many mothers are under the illusion that some children do not resist training. All children resist training even when we are doing the right things. This is normal."
