I know you are busy.
I am too.
I know you are tired.
I am too.
But DO NOT MISS OUT on sharing THE most important event, for us as believers, with your children this week!
As I type, it is Palm Sunday, the first day of Holy Week. (hear a great sermon on this ”Palm Sunday” event click here)
Talk about it with your children, no matter their age.
Share the gospel of the Living God with your children, it’s worth it.
Don’t let the weeds of this world choke out the very important pivotal truth of what happened to our Savior over 2,000 years ago.
Let this get you in the right mindset: Desiring God Post
You know sometimes you read a blog post/article/book and it is a real moment for you? Maybe not a complete game changer, because you were already headed in that certain direction, but certainly a light bulb kind of moment?
Joy and I both had that reaction when reading Jen Wilkin’s lastest parenting post. This gal has such a sweet spirit and shares INCREDIBLY GODLY insight. I’m so thankful for her friendship and her ability to share truth.
Does the Bible speak to parenting? YES! And it is in more ways than probably first come to mind . . .
Maybe you’ve already had this realization and come to the same conclusion as Jen. But if not, get ready. This will bless your socks off!
The Beginning of Wisdom: Our Children, Our Neighbors
posted by Mandy B Stenberg
Today we want to open it up to you, are reader. The reason Mandy and I started this blog was to have a place where believing families could come and read about real life with children, realize you are not alone, and to get encouragement from our experiences. You know as well as we do that many times online people/blog will only post their “best foot forward”. Well we hope, if you have been a reader, that you realize here at 18shortyears, we are real. We share our mistakes as well as we share our small victories in the context of being real with you as parents. Because, as you know, PARENTING IS HARD!
So we want to open this entire week up to give you an opportunity to share with us how this blog has impacted you, what other topics would you like for us to attempt to address or if you have any suggestions for us on how we can be a better place for you to get encouragement.
So scroll down and comment away!
We thank you for your time you give us each week to share about how God has been molding us to be better parents.
Its spring break in our part of the state, we hope you enjoy your time with your family and friends!
See you next week!
“I did the best I could”, we have all heard it, maybe it has crossed our own lips.
Rather than using this as our excuse or grace for ourselves, learn what’s better.
