"I'll Fix It Mom"

Emily came to me when her sole started to separate from her old shoe while she was working. I didn't want the tree sap ruin her new shoes. Caleb overheard and decisively said, "I have this." He walked away with Emily. Emily came back with orange electrical tape wrapped around her shoe! She LOVED that her big brother "fixed" her shoe for her. Years ago, Clint did the same with one of Caleb's old shoes while we were working outside. 

Your children are watching and will emulate you, parents. Even the adult children are watching and tucking into their hearts lessons which will be pulled out later. We are stewards over them for the Lord. They are learning how to love or hate, forgive or hold grudges, be thankful or resentful, rejoice or grumble, come together or stay apart, work or be lazy, self control or self seeking, live for the Lord or live for themselves, and so much more. Be a parent who glorifies the Lord!

Titus 1:7 For an overseer, as God's steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain,

I Peter 5:3 Not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock.
