Embrace the Process
If I always expect my kids to make me feel good or look good, I’m setting all of us up to fail!
My children were never meant to carry the weight of a mama’s need for validation. I’ve got 5 amazing kids. And while I’ve done everything in my power to raise them well, there aren’t any guarantees.
We can raise terrific kids, and we can also raise kids that chase wrong things their whole lives.
So, what’s a parent to do? Embrace the process. Learn from the process. Let God speak to us during the process. And see the process of raising kids as an ongoing opportunity to invest beyond ourselves.
God will use every step of this process for our good, but it won’t always make us feel good or look good.
