The Lord has grown my love for my Sweet Hubby in ways that I never imagined.
I'm so thankful for him. He is such a great Daddy and wonderful Pastor.
"Christian childrearing is a pastoral pursuit, not an organisational challenge . . . If you are focused on the upkeep of the house and the schedule, as long as your child is not interrupting, you don't worry about it. If you are being pastorally minded, you will stop whatever it is that you are doing to see how your daughter is up in her bedroom."
I appreciate Rachel's wisdom and want to try so many of her ideas that I will likely have to re-read sections to remember how to execute them. One of the concepts that she talks about is that we teach our children to be obedient because obedience leads to freedom, and that is something we want to model about God’s character.
". . . if you accept your lot and rejoice in your toil, God will give you the kind of overwhelming joy that cannot remember the details. Motherhood is hard work. It is repetitive and often times menial. Accept it. Rejoice in it. This is your toil. Right here. Those are their faces."
