It's Worth It!

Parenting is hard work. It takes consistency. I think that's what makes it so difficult. We don't always feel like being consistent. We don't always have the guts to do the tough things. It is so hard to live what you teach. But to all you parents out there - hang in there - it's worth it! Twice this year, I've gotten to attend Living Proof Live with my daughters. In March, with Jill and yesterday & today, with Joy. Both times, I got to share the experience of growing spiritually, as women - as well as mother/daughter. I got to look into my daughters' eyes, and share the life we have in Jesus Christ; to sing and praise and cry; to speak God's truths to each other. What an amazing blessing! I am nothing - it is all Christ. God has been faithful to my family. He is a great God, who blesses those who love Him and obey Him with all spiritual blessings. I can say from experience - don't quit! Teach your children to know Him and to love Him. Be consistent. Do the tough job of parenting. It's worth it!

Remind me of this when I'm ready to bring A to her Granny's and leave her. ;)
