I can't believe you turned seven years old a few days ago! It seems like just yesterday, that I took you in my arms and wept with tears of joy as I realized I finally had a daughter. My dreams have come true as you are becoming a young lady who values modesty and loves the Lord. You are a delight to me as we go do "girl things". I love sneaking you a piece of chocolate, winking and saying, "A girl's just gotta have her chocolate". It's our little secret and I can see the delight in your eyes as you know that we have something special going on.
I love homeschooling (most days). You are learning fast and you don't seem to mind school. You are curious and ask lots of questions.
You love your baby sister so much! I love to watch you dress her up and play with her. I pray you will always be close. There is nothing like a sister, Jess. She will understand you better than anyone. I only wish you were a little closer in age. God has a plan and I will not question it. Andrew and Jacob are close to you and I love watching you play with each other.
I'm glad you like to help me cook. I love teaching you my secret ingredients and hope that you will pass them on to your kids one day.
I pray that you will continue to grow in the Lord. I want your dreams to be godly dreams! I hope this coming year brings you a new depth to your relationship with God. I love doing devotions with you and pray that you will continue to want to do them.
You are taking off, my dear! You are starting to read more on your own and voluntarily. The whole world will be open to you and I pray that you will choose wisely.
"Show me your way , oh Lord, teach me Your paths; guide me in Your truth and teach me for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long." -Psalm 25:4-5 My Mission for this BLOG is to bring glory to God as I share what He is teaching me as I raise my children for Him. I want to encourage mothers all around the world to hang in there! Motherhood is tough, challenging and gritty. But through Christ's strength and the support of other moms who are in the trenches, I will keep pressing towards the goal to raise Godly children. Please feel free to leave comments. It blesses me so much! You can also email me at email@example.com
I am a Stay-At-Home mother of six children. We LOVE having a large family. My first love, is Christ and the Words of the Bible. My passion is to teach my children about the Lord. I love to watch my children discover their own faith in God. My husband has been a firefighter for over 20 years and is now an officer. I am very proud of him. I long to be a Titus 2 woman who encourages other women to love their husbands and children and to thrive in their homes, not just survive.
The noblest calling in the world is that of a mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. She who can paint a masterpiece or who can write a book that will influence millions deserves the plaudits and admiration of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting an influence throughout the ages long after paintings shall have faded, and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give. -David O. McKay Motherhood is the one thing in all the world which most truly exemplifies the God-given virtues of creating and sacrficing. Though it carries the woman close to the brink of death, motherhood also leads her into the very realm of the fountians of life and makes her co-partner with the Creator in bestowing upon eternal spirits mortal life. -David O McKay We can't form our children on our own concepts; we must take them and love them as God gives them to us. -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is his reward. -Psalm 127:3 The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom -Henry Ward Beecher The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children. -Elaine Heffner People who say they sleep like babies usually don't have them. -Leo J. Burke
To be a mother is a woman's greatest vocation in life. She is a partner with God. No being has a position of such power and influence. She holds in her hands the destiny of nations, for to her comes the responsibility and opportunity of molding the nation's citizens. -Spencer W. Kimball
