Inside: What I’ve learned is as long as I’m spending daily time with God and asking Him to lead me as a mother, my parenting style will be uniquely mine and for the good of my kids.

Do you ever question your parenting style? Do you feel like your kids are going to end up not following God or maybe even a mess?
I know I do! I feel like I’m winging it most days and I’m not doing enough to lead them as a Christian mother.
If anything, I feel like I’m leading them to a mess.
Growing as a Christian Parent
As a mom, I’m always on the lookout for resources to help me parent better. A parenting style that follows along with the Bible. But honestly, anything complicated is just too much work.
Now don’t get me wrong, my kids mean the world to me but I’m overwhelmed and have enough to do without rules and formulas for raising my kids. I also don’t want to have to question everything I’m doing.
What I’ve learned is as long as I’m spending daily time with God and asking Him to lead me as a mother, my parenting style will be uniquely mine and for the good of my kids.
Does that mean I’ll get it right and not make mistakes, of course not! I’m going to make mistakes all the time, but that’s where God’s grace comes in.
What a great lesson for my kids to be honest and let them know I will make mistakes and fail at parenting many times. I can firmly display and declare that I need Jesus.
