Journaling: Day 25

Today's prompt led to a journal entry that came very naturally to me.  There are so many things I wish for our children.  But the hard part is selecting just one to highlight for my journal entry.  Here is what I decided on...

Raising boys into godly men is something of a particular challenge.  It's not something C and I take lightly, but there are days when it seems just about impossible!  We shall not give up.  I know the Lord has great plans for these boys.  These future men.  I am blessed to be a part of their journey.

While I'm on the subject, I thought I should mention a book our older two sons have particularly enjoyed.  It is His Mighty Warrior: A Treasure Map from Your King, by Sheri Rose Shepherd.  It is written as if our Father is speaking directly to His son(s).  Each section includes a letter from God to the boy/reader, a Scripture verse and then a prayer for the boy to pray back to God.  It is written in a really impactful way that captures the attention of the most adventurous boys -- it really challenges them to become warriors for the Lord.  Check it out.

  1. The picture is great and the goals are inspiring.
    A challenging, but fulfilling path for the boys to take on. (and for you and C, too!)
