Embracing our Differences



Though you might share common traits with your children, know that God has created each one of them uniquely for His purposes.

Do you ever wonder why your teenager acts the way they do?  I think I have mistakenly assumed that since my teen daughter is strong willed like I am, that she must be in the process of becoming just like me. So, I have been trying to get her to see life and do life my way for years.

But recently, a friend opened my eyes to the fact that my daughter is designed by God to become her own unique person.  Despite my frustrations with how different we are, He chose me to be her mother. As her parent, there are still many life lessons to be taught. Our differences don’t necessarily mean that she is always wrong, and I am always right. I've learned to step back and ask God to give me the wisdom I need to help shape and mold her into the young woman He intends for her to become.
