What I Want my Kids to Know

what I want my kids to know

You are, and always will be, loved, no matter who you become or what choices you make. You derserve love. You will always have worth because you are a precious soul.

Does this mean there will be no hard consequences? No. But I promise I will not degrade you. I will not say, "I told you so." I will stand by you, because you are my child. I will always be in your corner.

I will love you, because all of us are worthy of love. I will forgive you, because I have walked in darkness and needed forgiveness. We all fall. We all fail. These moments are not what define you. What matters most is how you rise.

A few posts about parenting that spoke to me this week:

     May we let LOVE lead us.
     May we let generosity guide our actions.
     May we stand for what Christ stood for or rather stand with
     those whom Christ stands with. ALL.
