Proverbs 22:6 “Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.”
One afternoon I was watching Ellie through her classroom window. She was at dramatic play center. She had the table set perfectly with her corn on the cob ready to eat. She sat down took a look at the food making sure it was ready to go and then folded her hands and shut her eyes to pray. I nearly lost it! I’m so thankful that God allowed me to peek in at just the right moment. (Perks of Ellie being down the hall from me everyday.) 😍
Do you ever feel like you are losing as a parent? I feel this way often. Watching Ellie fold her hands and pray reminded me that Jessie and I are winning in the right areas. We might not always get it right and we are surely in need of Gods Grace daily but at the end of the day we know we are raising Ellie to love Jesus. Raising Ellie to Love and serve Jesus is an area I always want Jessie and I to win in as parents.
What areas as a parent do you want to win in?

Well said! You’ll reap the benefits. As a family we emphasized winning- teaching our kids about Jesus when we went about our day. Sports are fun and good exercise but we made sure it didn’t take away family time along with all the other things that rob us of family time!!
