Grace-Full Parenting

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
    the fruit of the womb a reward.   Psalm 127:3 ESV

Parenting is one of the most difficult, and most rewarding, adventures that there is.  God has given these blessings into my life, and I heavily feel the responsibility for shepherding their hearts.  These are eternal beings, and how I raise them has a huge influence on how and where they will spend eternity.  I do not take this lightly.

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.  Proverbs 22:6 ESV

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.  Ephesians 6:4 ESV

My thoughts on our Parenting Journey:

  1. Leading Children to Christ
  2. The Greatest Love – Laying Down Our Lives For Others
  3. Mothering Like Mary, Mother of Jesus
  4. Struggling to Sleep – Allowing Flowers to Bloom Uninterrupted
  5. The Life Within – Conception, Fertility, and Loss


You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.  And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.  You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.  You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.    Deuteronomy 6:5-9
