My beloved boys, 

You will never know how hard I try to be the godly mother you deserve. You will never understand the depths to which I strive for perfection. Being a parent is hard. I do not know everything, but I know the One who does. It is that I place my hope for you. My job is to carry out God's discipline in a way that captures your heart and draws you to him. With God's grace I will get a little better at that every day. I've got a long way to go, but Praise the Lord I'm not where I used to be. More than anything else in this world, Father God has used you to perfect me. 

Forever loving you, 

All the Way
Right Away
With a Happy Heart

Proverbs 19:20, “Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise.”

Colossians 3:20, “Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.”

Ephesians 6:1-3, “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise—“so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.

Parenting that Facilitates Healing from Sin

Psalm 103:8, “The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.”

Proverbs 14:29, “Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.”

Proverbs 15:1, “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”

James 1:19-20, “Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.”
