I was stuck, always struggling to share my faith with my very resistant son. Now I’m able to talk with him more naturally. My own faith is being nurtured as well. Watching my kids actually enjoy and even crave the gospel message feels like I’ve won the spiritual lottery.
Maintaining that consistency while working through the challenges of marriage and child rearing has been hard. I learned that it works the best when I get in tune with what God is doing in my life and in my kids’ lives.
I felt for a long time that the only people that could teach my kids about the Bible was the teachers at church. We think that God expects so much or to do it a specific way, then we feel like a failure, and that we’re not doing it enough. But he just wants us to be obedient.
