Grace & Truth for Moms

November 13, 2020 |
Grace & Truth

I have four children.

The girls are twins.

Yet all four of my children are completely unique.

I have a son who loves to run and loathes school. A strong, silent man-child who is super smart and more than a bit clumsy. A sweet, shy, girly-girl who loves her daddy. And a tomboy, mama’s girl with a personality the size of Texas.

Each of my children have their own strengths, but they each have weaknesses as well. As a mom, I often wish I could help them overcome those weaknesses, take them away, or knock some sense into them. (Whichever is needed.)

However, part of being a mom is watching your children grow into the people God intends them to be.

Sometimes, that means they have to be broken. It means accepting that He didn’t design all children to become straight-A students with ambitions of becoming doctors and lawyers. Not every kid was created to be the star quarterback.

All this is what came to mind when I was reading Christine’s post last week on InstaEncouragements.

She shared about how God brings change in our children’s lives, not moms.

Do you ever wish you could help your kids overcome their weaknesses, take those weaknesses  away, or just knock some sense into them? Heather does, but in today's Grace & Truth, Christine shows us that it's not all up to moms to shape their kids.

Are You Up For Some Family Fun This Holiday Season?

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. If you’re looking for something to do with your family over the holiday, consider teaching them how to make their own t-shirt or decorate a coffee mug. Everyone will walk away with keepsakes and memories, which will make this holiday a hit.

For This I am Thankful

Check out Heather’s Etsy store to see even more designs.
