My Goal As A Single Mom

When I suddenly became a single mother, I was violently thrown into A LOT of regrets.

my marriage
my behavior
my walk with my Lord and Savior
my parenting

I chose, when I came out of the fog I was in, to work on all of these.

  • I decided that if and when I did get married again, I would be the wife God made me to be.  
  • My behavior was that of someone who was NOT HAPPY, and was something that NEEDED to be changed.  
  • My walk began again when I began going to church regularly and seeing that the only way I was going to have the life God wants me to have is to walk with Him each and every day.
  • My biggest regret of all was my parenting of my 2 raving beauties.  My girls didn't know God.  They had been to church a few times, but I realized that they didn't KNOW Him.  I want them to grow up KNOWING how much He loves them and KNOW his word.  I wanted them to hear me pray as well as have them praying too. These are all things that should have been going on all along.  

I am bound and determined to train my children up "the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6.  Don't get me wrong, it is the hardest thing I have ever done.  I fall down daily.  The only way I get through it is with God by my side.

All that to say, that I got the girls their own bibles and they came in today.  They were both very excited!!! Here they are:

Rachel read and read. I pray that this to be her go to book!!!

Madi was "reading" too!!  LOL

Now my prayer is that these girls would find the love of Christ as comforting as I do!

  1. Needing and being needed is cyclical and at the center of this cycle is Christ. You are teaching your raving beauties so much about life and love. You are also teaching others in your life about love just by letting them watch you live and be a part of your travels.
