Yesterday, I wrote about the importance of reading the bible and using a kid-friendly bible with our children. Going to God's word daily is very important for our kid's, but also salient for us to be effective parents. After going to a parent group tonight, I've thought more about this. There are so many days where I question if I am doing this parenting thing right?? Am I being too strict, am I being too lenient? Am I doing enough, am I spoiling too much? and so on. Parenting is such a huge responsibility, but we don't have to do it alone! God has the instruction manual for us- the bible! With so many books out there with advice, it is so easy to get confused. God's truth can guide us and help us feel secure with the incredibly challenging, but wonderful gift of parenting.
Welcome! I'm Jen, the mother of 3 beautiful blessings! My little man- age 3 years, Peanut-age 8, and Sunshine- age 10. Celebrated 17 years of marriage this past year- Wow!

This site is dedicated to one of Abby's first teachers. God uses her daily to touch the lives of children (her Shining Stars). She touches the lives of grownups, too. She taught me to pray not only for the big things in my children's lives, but also for their daily boo boos! We are very blessed to have her in our lives!
