"Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court."
Psalm 127:3-5

We are out of the toddler stage and into the teen years with our girls and it’s fun! If I’ve learned anything from life lately it is to let myself laugh and enjoy them. I get caught up in making sure everyone is where they need to be and everyone has what they need that I forget to savor their unique personalities and the joy that they bring to our family. These high school teen years are sweet and are quickly coming to an end.

With all this fun has come great responsibility. The responsibility of teaching them about Jesus. Who He is. What His Word says. Then of course living that out in my own life. Being a mother is definitely the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I’ve had to die to myself repeatedly. Break generational curses. Watch them experience heartache. Release them into God’s hands over and over. Nothing about it has been easy, but God has been with me every step of the way. He has guided me, picked me up, refreshed me, graced me when I was convinced that I had ruined them. He sees me and all my hard work…He sees you too!
