Can I just say whoaaa!!! I know that my kids behavior is usually modeled after my own but the way you worded things made me really think about it all & in a little bit of a new perspective. I will have to mull this over a bit more & see where God is working on me. I have a pretty good idea already but will have to examine a little more & also write it down so I can come back to it & work on it more. Thanks Kerry.

I really am glad that you guys had a great trip to Nashville. Sometimes trips can double in time when you add kids into the mix. I know, I have 3 & their ages are 2, 4, & 6 and we travelled this summer & were very blessed with really good behavior from all 3 of them. A little car sickness episode but not really any fighthing.

I have been praying for my kids so many different ways. I have recently realized that their behavior is a reflection of mine. Thank you God for showing me what my attitude of prayer should be. Thank you Kerry for listening to God as always. I am definitely going to make this the prayer of my heart.

Our kids have always been well behaved but I have noticed since Marty has been sick the behaviour has been out of control. Elizabeth still throws fits like that and she is 8. I have really been working on that with her. I know some of it is our babying her since she is the baby in our family.

Conner is getting close to those teen years and starting to back talk. I have noticed his talk be a reflection of my talk to him at times.

The wonderful thing about homeschooling is you can see it and see yourself in that and know where it is coming from.

Kerry,

This really doesn't have to do with your post, but I have a praise to share. I requested prayers regarding my situation in law school. I have recently found out that I did well my first semester. I truly believed I was failing, but I am happy for that time, because it drew me close to God once again, and made me give up everything I had selfishly planned for my life.

I believe it is God's will for me to stay in law school right now. I am hoping to be a child and family lawyer, working with adoptive families and being an advocate for children who need someone to stand up for them. I don't know where this will lead or even where the need is for this kind of lawyer, but I have been so humbled by my experience, and I remember that it is God who will get me through school, not myself.

I so very much appreciate your prayers. There was one class I didn't think I could get anything more than a D in, and I ended up with a B. I truly believe only God could have helped me get that score.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Wow ! What amazing and inspiring words you write, Kerry. I so love to see that you have a new post because your words always seem to touch me deeply. I, too, have a praise from the prayer request posted on here for your Christmas bowl of incense. Our church recently lost our pastor to a move, and we have been concerned for a division that seemed to be rising up. At a town hall meeting Sunday night, where we thought a group of people were unsupportive of our pastor, we saw that there was a very few that actually thought that way. It was really eye-opening to alot of people, and God did a mighty work in our deacon body to encourage them to stand strong for God, His Word, and the truth we had been taught by our pastor. So exciting to see. !!! thanks for praying..
