Plentiful Perilous Parenting

I have been overwhelmed and honored by the amount of responses I received from my last parenting post. I heard from many of you via comments but I heard from even more privately via email and I want you to know that even if I haven't had a minute to get back to you, I have prayed for each of you one by one. I get it, and I am right there in the trenches with you.

This is tough stuff, this parenting stuff. My biggest struggle lately has been balancing, being too hard on myself and over-reacting and making sure I am not giving myself a free pass. I mean, I know that I cannot be perfect, and that I am on the whole a good mom, but I also want to always strive to be better. I am so honored that God chose me to pour into the lives of these precious ones and I long to hear him say "Well done, good and faithful servant" one day.

I am still spending time daily in prayer for those of you who contacted me and for parents all over. The World needs our kids. This is a truth and also close to the title of a book sent to me today by a sweet blog reader. I am LOVING this book so far and hope to do a post on it at a later date. I urge you to check it out if you are looking for a resource like this! :) Remember we are ALL in this together. Thank you to the many of you who have shared with me. I am praying for you and cheering for you. We can do this! It takes a village right? Even a cyber village! :) If you have any additional prayer requests please do feel free to email me or leave a comment!

Ha! A cyber village! Only in this day and age, huh?

Loved this post--because it is so true, we ARE all in this together and there is no reason why we can not all help one another--but that had me laughing out loud! :)

I long to hear those words from Christ, too....working harder and harder on that every day.
