If I see one more social media post that says we need Jesus back in our schools to solve our world’s problems I am going to blow a gasket. Whether Jesus is in the schools, in the White House or even an outhouse – it won’t matter . . . it must begin in the home.
My job as a mother is to raise my children to know the Lord.
It is my job to set an example of how to deal with life’s challenges.
It is my job to discipline my children.
It is my job to praise my children.
It is my job to allow natural consequences to fall upon my children when they make poor choices.
It is my job to read scriptures to them.
It is my job to explain the scriptures and if I can’t explain it to find out and ask questions.
It is my job to teach and guide them the best I can – admit when I blow it – show the corrected path by my words and my actions and when necessary, ask for their forgiveness.
It’s my job to pray with them and over my children.
It is my job to be Jesus to my children.
