More of what I was talking about Tuesday. Only she says it so much better!
Child rearing is soul winning... or not (an article at the LAF website.)
The more I hear, the more I read God's word, the more I realize how little I know. This issue of just how deep is the job of child rearing is heavy on my heart lately. There's so much more to it than just making sure the children get breakfast, naps and Jesus, not necessarily in that order, keep their rooms clean, darken the doors of the church twice a week and recite all their AWANA verses perfectly.
No, it's so much more!
I'm trying not to be militant about it, realizing that God in His vast tenderness brings us all to the same point but at different paces. He doesn't expect us to have it all figured out (thank you God!) and He doesn't expect us to affect a complete black-and-white transformation in EVERY area we're not getting all at once. (Super duper thank you, God!)
No. Can't be militant. But it's SO important! Please read this woman's article, you'll see what I mean.
