Where Did We Go Wrong?

"The question we ask of ourselves must be reframed. We need to quit asking, 'Am I parenting my children successfully?' And we most certainly need to quit asking, 'Are others parenting successfully?' Instead, we need to ask, 'Am I parenting faithfully?' Faithfulness, after all, is God's highest requirement of us."
- Fields

So if you lay awake nights beating yourself up and wondering what went wrong along the way. Or micro-analyze every decision you ever made. If you live in the land of woulda/coulda/shoulda. Or agonize why your kids walked away from the faith or are making stupid choices, this is a must read article.

And if for some reason your kids turned out well (whatever that means), and you think maybe you should win some kind of parenting trophy ... maybe you should hit that link right now.

He is merciful ... and He's not done yet ~

"But be sure to fear the Lord and serve Him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things He has done for you"
- 1 Samuel 12:24.
