Sarah, Nathan, Joy and Joel--The tools God used to teach me everything I know about motherhood.
“Children do not accidentally become righteous leaders or emotionally healthy and productive adults – any more than seeds thrown randomly to the wind grow to be part of a thriving, beautiful garden.
Someone needs to take responsibility for their nurture, protection, nourishment, intellectual development, manners, recreation, personal needs, and spiritual development. Someone needs to commit time and energy into staying close to them as they grow, encouraging, loving, correcting and teaching.
God designed mothers with a capacity to call forth all that is great, excellent, true, pure and righteous in a child's heart and to cast a vision for their children to bring these virtues about in their own lives, and in their generation. When I woman embraces her design and call by God, there will always be hope for each generation.”
