On Building Relationships with Our Children.

Do you know how important it is to have strong healthy relationships with your children? Are you damaging your relationships with them without realizing it?

 This is a topic that is very important to me. I spend alot of time thinking about how I can have stronger relationships with my children. I know it is so important! I feel that God gave me a revelation about this earlier this week and I just wanted to share it.

Daniel and I have been married going on 10 years. I was thinking about just how much it blesses us both that my parents pray with us every time they see us that our home will sell quickly and that we will be able to move onto land soon. They do that because they know it is the desire of our hearts and because it is important to us, it is also important to them.

What a revelation!! No matter how old you are, it means so much to know that what is important to you is also important to your parents. How often do we tear our children's hopes and dreams down by being negative or saying things that are best left unsaid? Do we let our children know that we are fighting for what is important to them? Do we truly take the time to put ourselves in their shoes no matter how trivial the situation seems?

We want to make more effort to be sure that Isaac, James, Grace, Mercy and Susanna know that what is important to them is also important to Mommy and Daddy!
