I want to be that mom

"...The mom whose faith is real, whose Bible is open, and who stops fretting about all the time she doesn't have but makes use of the hours she's given. 

My children need me to diligently teach them the gospel. And it isn't just beneficial for their hungry souls. God uses it to feed my heart too. Independent and collaborative Bible reading, memory verses, and prayer time—there is time to seek Him snuggled in bed, in the play room, the backyard, and the breakfast table. God is faithful to use the noisy and the quiet, the long and the short, the messy and the clean times. I need only to welcome them."
