This past weekend, I attended the MomHeart Conference in Denver. It was such a huge blessing for me. The Lord really showed me a lot through Sally Clarkson and her team.
I have read Sally’s books and blogs fo manyr years, but I am more of an auditory learner. To be in her presence and hear her share was such an education for me. One of the people that really touched me was her husband, Clay. What a man of God! I was so excited to be one of the first to get his republished book Heartfelt Discipline. We hear so much from amazing Sally, but Clay is definitely the backbone of this family. To see how they love and support one another is so inspiring.
I have been digesting and pondering what I learned over the weekend. I think that the main thing that is on my mind is that I am here to be a Kingdom Builder. God has trusted me with these precious children that belong to Him. He has asked me to bring them up to know Him and impact the world for Him. What a huge responsibility, but I am so willing to sacrifice all to do this job along with my husband. One thing that I was convicted by is, in order to fill my children with the knowledge of the Lord, I must possess it myself. I am rededicating myself to growing in my own relationship with the Lord. I sometimes get so caught up in teaching my kids about Him, that my own time with Him is lacking. I want my kids to see me living a life of faith, be a prayerful mom and a woman that loves the Word of the Lord. My zeal for God was definitely reignited this weekend! I am so excited to continue this life journey with my family so that we can continue together for eternity.
