Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family
Anyone who thinks parenting is hard, raise your hands!!!! There is not one person, on the face of the planet that will tell you…the bliss when you decide to start a family…..the coolness (mostly) of being pregnant….the holding that fresh new life….will become a constant battlefield that places in your mind until the Lord calls you home. No one tells you that.
Here I am, telling you that! I have 7 kids, you would think I would have figured it out or I was trying my best for a “do over” in the parenting department. Parenting is tough. The early years are wrought with sleep deprivation, vomit, and projectile poop. The toddler years are strictly survival mode. The teenage years is like nailing jello to a wall and the young adult years…..oh, that just hurts your heart.
The Bible is your “go to” for any parenting question. It, absolutely, lays it out in black and white (and red). Turn to it. Lean on Jesus. Learn and then teach others from your mistakes. We all need to take a moment and stop shaming ourselves and others for their parenting moments. We are all learning as we go…so calm the heck down, stop judging and go hug a mama (or a daddy). We are all in this together!
