The more your kids understand their God-given purpose in life, the more likely they are to stay grounded in their faith into adulthood. So I’ve tackled this vital topic in Episode 16 of CHRISTIAN PARENT/CRAZY WORLD.
As parents, we have this incredibly unique position in our kids’ lives. We are literally front row center for most of the first two decades. We are, hands down, the most important influence on our kids during their formative years. We have not just the ability, but the responsibility to uncover the spiritual gifts in our kids’ lives, and to cultivate them. You could say that we are the chief gardeners in their lives. How well those little seeds do is, in a large part, up to us.
1. What do you see in your child’s life that isn’t like your other kids or other peoples’ children? When you see a gift – feed it. Call it out and encourage it. Water that gift and watch it grow.
2. Don’t compare your parenting or your kids to other kids. God specifically chose you to parent your children. What your kids need is quite simple—they need you. Your gifts. Your strengths. Your time. Your nurturing. Even your weaknesses. They need you.
