Dear Sweet Mamas!
How is your summer going? I pray your time with your kids at home is fun! It will be over before you know it!
The phrase, “The days are long but the years are short” is so true! I really miss the days when my children were in my home.
Even though many of the days felt stressful and tiring, I would still start over from day one. I can honestly say that asking God to help me to “savor the days” with my kids really made a difference in my attitude and my heart.
When we pray verses such as Psalm 39:4, “Show me, LORD, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is,” it helps us to enjoy the days with our family instead of taking them for granted.
My challenge for you this week is to write this verse on a little card and keep it at your kitchen sink. Make them your life’s prayer for this season with your kids at home.
It’s going to be a great summer! We are praying for you!

I remember going into my daughter's room night after night and kneeling beside her bed and crying my heart out to God because I didn’t know how to be a Christian mom; I felt like I had no idea what I was doing. You know what? God is so faithful! He answered me and simply said, “Spend time with me, Deb.” And so I did. I began arising 15-30 minutes earlier each day so I could read my Bible and pray, and plan out my day with my family.
If there was one thing I would love to share with you is that God is personal and loves you as you are. You don’t have to be perfect to be loved by our amazing God! Come as you are! His loving presence can be practically known and experienced. He is not a God who is far away, He is near and easily found. He longs for you to come to Him!
