If we want to reach the hearts of our children, we must model our parenting after the heart of God--to draw our children with an everlasting love--that we will always love them, no matter what.
Our testimony through the darkness is precious to God. We become humble because we realize we have no power, no strength of our own to be able to handle life or to stay alive in a healthy way apart from God's intervention--his help, strength, wisdom, provision, leading.
Love is the fuel that causes a baby to grow strong, love gives strength to the heart of a child learning true foundations of life, love carries teens through years of self-doubt to adulthood with the memory of having been cherished through mysterious years.
This week's podcast is a recorded message with Sally Clarkson and Kristen Kill from the "Renew My Heart Getaway" in Dallas, TX.
Vision for life grows when we see the attributes of God and understand that when we trust Him, He works beyond what we could have ever imagined.
My friends breathe oxygen into the life of the ideals I cherish. When I am weary, they make me want to be faithful, they care about my heart. They give me lots of giggles, pleasures and a feeling that I am not alone.
This journey of mothering is a challenging marathon of moments, hours, days, months, years, and decades. And yet, in each moment, God has sprinkled across our paths beauty, love, and joy. We have only to cultivate eyes in our hearts to observe this Artist’s work of life.
I have learned, through many seasons, to have anchors in my life and in my home so that we can all have work, play, education, ministry and fun in ways that will keep us growing strong as we go.
The unconditional love of Christ means more each day. He sees us with compassion, he loves us as we are, he speaks to us with encouragement, he offers us hope.
Nathan joins Kristen Kill and me today to tell you a little about our journey. I hope you will all be encouraged and inspired by God's faithfulness through our years. No matter what circumstance you find yourself in, there is hope.
