I love posting about my kids. I reviewed some previous posts and realized that most of them were about our youngest. With him being 4 years old, it's easy to write about his adventures. Well today, I'm writing all about my daughter. The past seven days have been amazing for her. She turned 11 this week and it's hard to believe how rapidly time flew. Even though people always tell you to enjoy each moment because they fly by quickly, time still seems to evaporate when raising kids.
Not only did she turn 11, she also:
- Finished her track season by reaching personal goals in the long jump & 400 events
- Completed her 8th year of dance with a beautiful recital performance
- Promoted to 6th grade (middle school-YIKES!)
God's word will guide my parenting actions. I won't always get it right but in those moments when I don't, I will let her know mommy made a mistake. I am fighting for her heart.
Here's my top 3 parenting scriptures:
- Proverbs 22:6Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.
- Proverbs 29:15
Wise discipline imparts wisdom; spoiled adolescents embarrass their parents.
- Ephesians 6:4
Fathers, don’t exasperate your children by coming down hard on them. Take them by the hand and lead them in the way of the Master.
Not school. Not other kids. Not even teachers. Us. (Posted by Renee)
