My Influence on My Children…

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

I’ve been reading Mission of Motherhood by Sally Clarkson {yes, the same author from Ministry of Motherhood ~ have I mentioned how much I love her?}.  There was a passage that I underlined and highlighted and wanted to share…

“Because God has blessed me with a husband and children, a part of His call to me is to follow His plan for families. And that means I am to shepherd the hearts of the children whom He has providentially placed in my care. I am to care for them tenderly and to partner with God and my husband in leading my children to know and love His Word and to follow His will.

This design doesn’t mean I have to lose myself in my children’s lives. On the contrary, following God’s design for living is the true key to finding myself – to becoming the person He had in mind for me all along. And saying yes to the mission of motherhood has certainly not meant giving up ministry. To a great extent, it is my ministry….

my influence on my children is limited only by the smallness of my dreams and my lack of commitment to the Lord and His purposes.”

~ Sally Clarkson, p 15 & 16
