The Mom I Want To Be





When I became a parent at the age of 21 I had no idea what I was doing. For the first couple of years everything was trial and error, fall and get back up again.  But I've always strived in my parenting to remember that they are kids and will make mistakes. I also want them to personally and intimately know Jesus.  I had spent my entire life going to church on Sundays, and believing He existed, but not knowing Him personally. For my kids I want it to be different. 

I'm guest posting over at Gindi Vincent's blog today click here to read the rest of the story...and maybe leave a comment? Thanks guys! :)

  2. You do have so much wisdom. Just when you think you have a grip on the whole mothering thing it seems as though it's time for a humbling moment. That is me right now. I do have to constantly remind myself who's kid I am and that He gave me the responsibility to raise these darlings because He believes I can. (big sigh....)

    1. Oh girl, me too! There are days when I wonder, what in the world?! I feel so unable. I have to constantly remind myself that He gave them to me bc He knew I would be the right kind of mother to them. Kids have a great way of humbling us, don't they? ;)

  3. Hi Alicia, I just came across your blog and I loved this. It screams me all over it. It's good to see that someone else goes through the same struggles I do and that I'm not alone in my fears of being a good mother. Best of all I like your advice so to say. Because by telling how you handle things gives me a n idea of how I know I want to be but don't know where to get started. Thank you for your words that I just found today.
