My Children Teach Me Daily

The girls and I normally pray together as we drive to our morning destinations. This morning, however, Kenzlee had asked to listen to “her” music (a Veggie Tales Worship CD which I highly recommend – it is fabulous).

So, I thought to myself that I wouldn’t interrupt their singing to pray with them, I would just pray for them on my own. I really didn’t think they would think anything of it. But, I was wrong. Early this evening, Evylee came to me to say, “Mom, we didn’t pray today.” And, while I felt like a failure, it reminded me of something very important – talking to God as a family is really, really important. I am so thankful for teachable reminder moments from a sweet 4-year-old girl. I will not think twice about praying with my kiddos during our next car trip.

And, in my feel like a failure moment, I am also reminded of the sermon from this past Sunday. God is a God of grace, it’s okay that I fail, it’s okay that I’m not a perfect mom – God’s grace covered me and my inadequacies when I knelt beside my bed at the mere age of 8! Wow . . . that is a lot of grace!!

I am a mom of 3 adorable kiddos born in 3 consecutive years. I juggle daily with work outside of the home, managing a family, keeping a house, connecting socially, loving and adoring my husband, and seeking to grow closer with my heavenly Father each step of the way . . . however, this blog will prove my inadequacies in all of the mentioned areas. Humbly, I pray that as I journey through this world of blogging, I will grow closer to my Father and others will be drawn to His feet in praise, as well.
