"The profound impact that a solid marriage, familial love, and godly order has on the children in a Christian home is dramatic." ~Passionate Housewives Desperate for God
I am currently reading/have been reading this book forever and I just love the quote above. Nick and I mulled over it last night and have made it our parenting mantra. It is just so true. What we do and how we raise these children affects them for the rest of their lives.
Often I get so caught up in the day to day, so overwhelmed by the needs of the everyday that I forget the big picture.
The bottom line is that my ministry is these children. Our life, leading them to Christ, raising them to somehow manage without their mother, that is what I am doing here.
The quote has helped me to put it in perspective. My children need to have our marriage strong, and our home filled with order and our family's love.
