When we were kids we had Saturday morning cartoons then it was out the door to go play outside. Today there is a never ending supply of cartoons, video games and worldwide web at our children’s fingertips. While technology has provided great benefits to our society, it is important that we as Christian moms, monitor the things our innocent children are exposed to. “If you don’t teach our kids to follow Christ, the world will teach them not to.” I know from experience this is often times easier said than done.
As Christian moms we try to help our kids lead a Christ-centered, well balanced life. At home we encourage them to limit their time on their devices and we set aside time for family activities and prayer. We pay attention to the friends our children are making and work hard to surround them with other Christ-centered influences. We pray each time we drop them off at school, asking God to bless and protect them, the teachers, and the other children. We speak life into them as often as posible, reminding them of God’s promises and instilling that truth as the foundation for their life.
Still, we yearn to do more! Our mom hearts cry out, searching for ways to “parent by the book”, seeking out our “village” to help us train our kids in the way they should go. We struggle to find the balance between being a wife, a mom, and financially contributing to our families as we strive toward the image of the Proverbs 31 woman.
