Celebrating Adam and Liam's baptism yesterday and now this morning I can't stop thinking about so many things and especially in regards to parenting and church family. Their testimonies are as unique as they are and I feel sure God is preparing them for equally different roles in His kingdom. I'm so proud of who they are today. David and I have been passionate about parenting well from the beginning, but you know what? You will never be able to sanctify your child -- only Jesus can do that. You can modify behavior, but only Jesus can change the bend of their hearts. One of the most important gifts we can give our children is to teach them how to listen to His voice. Also, I cannot stop thanking God for the powerful gift of a church family. The change in our boys in the last ten months has been remarkable. To be in an environment where the truth of the Gospel is not just preached but lived out without pretense or cloaked in agenda ... to be among people who willingly invest in others and call them to something higher ... it's been an incredible gift. So thank you to our church family...you have been a big part of this.
