Parenting has been the hardest, most intense, heart-breaking, heart-warming, soul shaking, rewarding and unpredictable experience of my life thus far and with three teenagers, I’ve still got a long way to go. Lord help me. Lord help us all.

A word of encouragement to parents everywhere…

“If we’re careful not to take too much credit when our children make good choices, maybe we won’t have to take too much blame when they make poor choices because they will inevitably make both. In parenting, we do the very best we can, but accept that our children are individuals, not an extension of us.”

Love them well, love them deeply and if at all possible, let them know you love them every single day. May God bless your parenting journey as shaping the next generation is no small calling.

I want to help people. I'm here, I'm listening and I hope I can make a difference. I am eternally grateful for the people in my life who have always been willing to listen, pray for me and give guidance. I hope to pay it forward.
