This morning as I was doing my morning devotional before my workout...this is what I wrote down. Not 3 minutes later, the littlest of the crew woke up crying and was up for the day an hour earlier than normal. He was soon followed by the other two sneaking down the stairs all before I could start my workout .
I struggled my way through it, impatient with my kids, only to finish and realize that what I had read this morning clearly hadn’t sunk in at all I struggle sometimes to find the joy in the everyday moments and struggles of motherhood. I get cranky when things don’t go my way and I sometimes get short with my kids because of it. .
As I wrote out my prayer after, I asked for help in seeing the JOY in all the struggles that come with young children. That they may see HIM through me. Because in my heart I know that THEY are my calling and that HE will not let me fail them.

She wanted to have a bake sale with her friends and make some money. After some negotiations, we decided that half the proceeds would go to a charity. They decided to give to @humanesociety to help with animal rescue and care. In our land of plenty, I find that my kids can lose sight of having a generous heart and I often need to help steer their motives differently instead of making money to have more! I’m grateful for @theconsciouskid and @thebarefootmommy who recommend books and ideas to help shape our kids’ hearts for good! Praying for our little people to help and serve others in love - Galatians 5:13. #givingtuesday#generousheart#livetogive#raisingatween
