What's the most important thing you want your child to remember about you? Are you an awesome cook or maybe keep an immaculately clean house? Are you the parent that gives them their heart's desires or are you the best friend they always wanted? While all of those are wonderful things parents can be, I want more. When Ryan and I talk about the things we want Caleb to learn from us and about us, two things come immediately to mind. When Caleb tells his grandchildren about his parents we want nothing more than for him to explain we loved God with all of our hearts and we had an amazing marriage. We want to be the example he bases his whole life on.
Bit by bit, he understands.....If we show him the love we have for the Lord, he will be on the right path.
Everyone makes mistakes.
If you are trapped in this cycle, forgiveness is the way to heal.
You better believe that the way children are raised directly shapes who they are as adults.
If you aren't modeling what a great marriage looks like, where else can they learn how to have one?
If you have a broken marriage or are a single parent, hope is never lost. God can heal your marriage if you turn it over to Him. If you are already divorced and are raising a child alone, please pray for God's will in your life. No problem is too great for Him to repair. His answer to your prayer may not be easy or you may not understand it, but He does everything for a reason.
