I have been thinking a lot about intentional parenting. About discipline and the big life goals I have for my son. I have been thinking about the things I need to teach him and the things I want to teach him. I have been meditating upon God’s word and the things He requires of me, as parent, to do and be.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I haven’t thought about these things up until now. I have been a mommy for almost a year now and these things have certainly crossed my mind. But honestly, this first year was more about learning to keep my child alive, well-fed and well-slept. I was learning all the physical aspects of parenting, and now it is time to focus on the spiritual aspects of it. I can already tell this year will be another huge learning curve for me. I am so excited for what God has in store for my little family.
If you are parenting little ones, go here and listen to these three talks on parenting. Listening to them has been a wonderful way to kick-start my year of learning how to parent intentionally and biblically!
Have a blessed day, friends!
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he
will not depart from it. Pr 22:6
