"Life is a marathon, not a dash, and the victory goes to the ones who PACE themselves. God wants us to live a life of balance and joy." — Karen Jensen
If you’re a Christian parent (or know some Christian parents) who want to raise your children “in the discipline and instruction of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4) then this devotional is for you!
As you read through it, you’ll learn that God is on your side in this great adventure of parenting. He believes the best for you and your family. Parenting can be the most delightful, frustrating, exhilarating, confusing, exciting, exhausting job on the planet! But God knew what He was doing when He made you a parent, and when He put your child(ren) in your family – you have all His grace and power and love backing you.
This book contains verses and declarations that I used when my children were growing up. When they were 12 & 13 years old, their father (my first husband) died very suddenly, and I didn’t remarry until they were grown and married themselves.
So I have been a married parent and a single parent, and I can testify to the fact that no matter what your circumstances are, God is faithful! He has seen us through in every situation. Both my sons are still serving God with all their hearts today, raising their own kids, and I can tell you with certainty: God’s Word works.
