Fill ‘Em Up: Filling Your Kids with Truth
We’re taking a break this week from our Church series to chat books & parenting. Today, we’re talking parenting and how we fill our kids with God’s truth in a messy world.
This parenting gig is hard.
Can I get an Amen?
I love parenting. I really do, and I may or may not have possibly typed a question mark at the end of that last sentence. As a parent I want nothing but the best for my kids, and in a perfect world I know exactly what that is.
But we’re not in a perfect world, are we? After all, in a perfect world we wouldn’t still be doing laundry. So.much.laundry. If only laundry were the worst of it.
With the diaper and spit-up years behind me I thought it would be easy. And in some ways it is. The independence is amazing and beautiful and — terrifying. Because now the kids are not my babies, they are becoming people. Real people who interact with the world when I’m not there to oversee it and protect them. And that is scary. But that does not render us helpless.
Sharing words at #raralinkup and with these great writers today!
