What Matters Most from Kelly’s Korner Blog

My best friend, Monique, shared an encouraging blog entry with me this morning . . . right after she called to ask me if we could get together one night this week to pray. (Wow, I have truly been blessed with the greatest friend in the world!)

You should definitely read Kelly’s Blog entry because what truly matters most is that our children love God with “all of their hearts, their souls, their strength and their minds” (Luke 10:27). Because of this love relationship with our Heavenly Father, our children will also “love their neighbors.”

Nathan & I always talk about the fact that we truly do not have any desire to see our children reach genius status, and I hope and pray that my friends do not see my as a bragging mother because I work hard to share our craziness and expose our faults of raising 3 kids in 3 years. For some reason, God has blessed us with 3 tremendously bright children, though!

All of my rambling to say, read Kelly’s Blog. I believe it will encourage you and comfort you on this journey of parenthood. There is no need for us to compare our children. In those times that we feel like we need to keep up with the kid down the street, let us drop to our knees in prayer that God will mold the hearts of our children to imitate His way. I also spend many moments praying for the friends that my children will have along the way and for their future spouses. As the girls begin to be in awe of being a bride one day, we have spent time in the car praying together for the men that God is preparing for them.

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.
