When I realized joining the military was something, my son wanted for his own life, I began to relax and God was then able to work on my heart. It was revealed to me in my time with God that I was perhaps praying against God’s will for my son’s life.
“We don’t swim in the toilet!” No. “Don’t feed your breakfast to the dog!” No. “Don’t eat MY…
I have been intentional to guard my children from any word spoken against them, and yet in that moment I was the one speaking negative. I know that this is easily a situation where you can get hyper “religious” but for me it was eye opening.
Some may argue that my attempts are futile as she cannot understand what I am saying. However does that stop parents from talking to their babies? Isn’t it from our talk, describing the world around them and constantly telling them who daddy and mummy is that our baby’s first words come from those s/he hears the most. We are already training our babies in so many areas: eating, using a car seat, table manners, talking, walking, biting is bad and so on.

I will wage war for life, but I cannot justify trampling the wounded on the way to the battle. I must keep my heart at a place that I will stand for truth, but also be willing to run across the street for the broken carrying the weight of her choice. When I forget how to do both, then I fall into dangerous territory myself.
Three little girls were sitting on the bottom bleacher watching the basketball game. As we walked by, one girl stuck out her foot and tried to trip my daughter. She then stuck out her tongue and told my daughter that her hair was ugly…..

It was a drawn-out elongated journey where the beginning of a dating relationship with a boyfriend began to slowly change my daughter.
