{Day 6}

I feel like I constantly repeat myself. 

 

{Day 7}

I need a physical reminder to choose life-giving words.  I recently read an ingenious idea.  One mom was in a dark parenting rut, as she describes it.  She realized that she was actually bullying her kids.  She started to give physical reminders that kindness, patience, and gentleness are what she's aiming for.

 

{Day 8}

My Prayer today for my kids:

Ephesians 1:16-23

I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.  I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.  I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people,  and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms,  far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way (NIV).

 

{Day 9}

Some friends and I were discussing how we, as moms, take our children's misbehavior personally.  We internalize it.  Do you do that?

Do you feel like your children's misbehavior is a reflection of you and your parenting? 

 

{DAY 10}

 
How often have you said, "JUST DO IT!" to your kids?
 
Whether they're dilly-dallying, outright defying you, or getting distracted (that happens A LOT in our home!), you need something done either for your good or theirs, and yet, they just can't seem to get it done.
 
"Just do it!" we say exasperatedly.
 
"How hard is it?" we ask because we just can't understand how they can't finish something SO SIMPLE.  Normally, it would take them a fraction of the time it is taking them.  
 
Do we forget that we do the exact same thing?
