Starting a new book...

I am getting ready to start Shepherding a Child's Heart. A friend gave it to me and I started reading it, and then I had Campbell ;) Not much reading has happened since then. Anyway, in light of these changes I need to make that keep coming back to me, I thought I would read this book now.

My kids are great. And for the most part, they are really well-behaved. But I have talked before about only teaching them the outward behaviors and not getting to their hearts. Well, I feel like they aren't getting it because I have to keep teaching the same things over and over again. I don't feel like I am getting to the heart. I want them to do the right things because they want to, not because they are afraid of being punished.

So, tonight, I will begin this journey yet again. Maybe this time, I won't just talk about it but actually do something about it.

Hey there,
I admire your comittment to pick up on this journey again and don't be hard on yourself, you did have a precious little interruption there:)
I will be praying for you to stay the path and for your kids little hearts to be open to the things you and Stephen will be teaching them. Bless you for following your heart.

Love, Laurie in Ca.
