Young moms

This past year, Sarah Weber and I were privileged to help facilitate a young mom's study. Sarah and I have been doing this for 3 years now.

This year we studied the book "Entrusted with a Child's Heart" a Biblical study in parenting written by Betsy Corning.

We learned about being a godly mother by embracing Jesus Christ as our Saviour and Lord. That a godly mother lives by convictions and biblical priorities. And a godly mother establishes authority in her child's life and trains her children to see God as their lifelong authority. We learned about discipline, recognizing and handling manipulation; dealing with rebellion. How to use words that edify. And going to battle for the heart of our child.

For our final time together, we met at the park. There were a few of the girls who could not make it and we were disappointed about that.

We had a lovely time. With the spring this year being either very chilly or super windy, this morning was a perfect morning!

As I looked at Amanda, I thought "Hmm. Is that a bump there?! " But I didn't want to ask. I did that once and the girl wasn't. I felt horrible!

But then I heard someone mention that she is pregnant!! She had posted it on her blog just that morning, but I hadn't read it yet. I found out that I wasn't the only one who looking at her tummy and wondering the same thing. We are so happy for her!

Being silly.

We had a picnic lunch.

Marin fed the neighborhood kitty.

I am truly amazed at the young moms we have at our church. They desire God's best for their families. They love the Lord. And they are just fun to be with!!! Thank you so much, ladies, for letting Sarah and I be a part of your lives!

And, thank you to you and Sarah for leading us -- I'm glad to say we've been doing this now for 3 whole years! You took some great shots of all of the kiddos at the park that day!
