Tips Tuesday – Involve Your Kids

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Mom Talk, Mom Tips

I once saw a picture that was flying around the Internet sometime towards the end of last year about a woman that was carrying so much. She had the burden of her husband and her children and so much more.

I have a dear friend that once said to me: “It’s because of my input that my husband can be comfortable be a Pastor”. She probably may not remember, but I do. And I remember all the time.

“When Isaac planted his crops that year, he harvested a hundred times more grain than he planted, for the LORD blessed him. He became a very rich man, and his wealth continued to grow.
