On becoming a better version of myself as a mother

Wednesday, August 24th, 2016
Whatever your religious beliefs, every parent must decide if they are confident that their child can learn how to think for himself/herself in a hyper-connected world that can convince us of things that are not true.

I have come to truly appreciate the trust God has placed in humanity, that he would grant us the capacity to procreate – to bear children and be responsible for their upbringing and care. Through my motherhood journey, I have learned that we are all imperfect parents with imperfect children, and we have the power to make home a safe place to learn how to become better versions of ourselves. To become trustworthy citizens at home, in our community and in the world. To defend the love of God, which is the liberty that already belongs to the soul. It is like saying to your child, “You already have the ‘A’, and my job is to teach you how to defend it.”

Thank you LORD for revealing to me where I am crooked, that I may straighten my heart and mind to come into alignment with you – where there is perfect peace. Thank you for granting wisdom to me generously without finding fault. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
