Spirit Check!

So, yesterday was a little rough for me. Something was brough to my attention about being a mom. I won't go into details. I really felt a heavyness on my heart all day yesterday. So, of course I immediately prayed about it and when I did the Lord really gave me clarity on the situation. I realized that every mother has different opinions on how there children should be raised and every child is different. There are tons of "self help" books on the market but the REAL "self help" book is the bible. Jacob and I pray over Taylor every night and I encourage every mom and dad to do this. One of the things that we ask for is the spirit of obidence to be on Taylor. Today, I realized that I needed to start out every day with Ta in prayer as well and asking the Lord to help us and guide us. I did that today and something was different in her spirit.
Proverbs 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not depart from it.
So, I encourage all moms and dads to start to pray every morning, as well as every night with your kids, no matter what age they are. Start to train them promptly (early.)
