It All Starts with Dad

As mothers in general, we have big dreams for our children. As Christian moms, we have an added desire to see our children come to the Lord. We hustle on Sunday mornings to get them up, feed, dressed, and out the door to church. We take them to Awana on Wednesday nights and attempt to get a Bible story and prayer in each night at bedtime. It helps us feel we have our checklist in order and our hearts aligned correctly. We lean on Proverbs 22:6:

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

Today, however, I want to encourage the moms out there to slow down a little. If you are like me, you go through your daily routine at the speed of light, and before you know it, the day is gone. So let’s sit back for just a couple minutes, take a deep breath, and recognize we may have left something undone. But don’t panic! You know that task will still be there when we are done! Soak in these moments with God, and let all the distractions go.
