Taking Advantage of the Pre-School Years~ Part 9

There are a few more random ideas I'll be adding, but that is mostly what I'll be sharing.  Here's my brief sum up;  Remember~

  • Remember and believe that children are a blessing and a reward from the Lord.  Don't let any other way of thinking come into your mind!
  • That we are aiming our children towards a goal.  Our goal should be children who love the Lord with all their heart, soul, mind and strength and to love their neighbor as their self.
  • That nothing else should take higher priority over our ultimate goal.
  • The pre-school years are the foundation of your children's lives.
  • Train obedience as top priority
  • Build in them a heart of obedience as you draw their heart close to yours
  • Tie those heart string!  And beware of cutting them!
  • Love your children, and teach them what real love is.
  • Teach your children to learn.
  • Teach them the truth.  Make sure they know the truth about God.
  • Teach your children scripture.

Please be praying for me as I speak at the conference on Friday.  I really am not a speaker and am feeling dreadfully nervous.  For some reason my body thinks I should stop breathing while I speak and that never turns out very well.  All I want is for God to be glorified and for other moms to feel encouraged.  Please pray that the Lord can use me however He desires!
