Good Points

I follow a blog of a woman who is pregnant with her 9th baby. Yup, that wasn't a typo people...NINE! ;) She is super woman, aka Pink Slippers. She has really good insight to lots of every day situations. (such a mom right?!?!) The other day she posted about "Some Things."

While reading her post I found myself shaking my head "yes." She states so many things I want/strive to do and be. I printed these 12 "things" out to hang where I would see them daily. It's the small reminders that help me. What "things" are you currently learning?

Some things I have learned or am currently learning as a Mommy:

1. My marriage and walk with God are the two most important things my children will witness.
2. Don't cry over spilt milk. That's for me, not my children.
3. My husband and I are the ones who are accountable to teach our children about Jesus and God's word. Not the Sunday school teacher.
4. My children will worship God how I worship God. That is why my young'uns should be in church with me during song service.
5. My kids need to see me reading my Bible. Everyday. And loving it.
6. Playing worship music really loud in my home bringing in the presence of God can change the whole atmosphere.
7. Teaching my kids to serve in this order of priority: Jesus first, others second, and yourself last will bring them a lifetime of contentment.
8. Making church a priority in my family has birthed a love in my children's hearts for God's house.
9. Having my children serve in church has brought great fulfillment deep in my heart.
10. By trusting my husband, I am ultimately trusting God.
11. The more I contend for God in my marriage, the more I desire to fill myself with Jesus and to grow even closer to His presence.
12. The more I desire God the more satisfied I am in whatever present state I am in.

  1. For #7 - I always remember JOY (Jesus 1st, Other's second, Yourself last)...you've probably seen or heard it before but it's always something I roll around in my mind. :)
