When something exciting in your life happens, don’t you want to share it with someone? I do!
So it is with great joy that I announce the publication of my latest book, “When Your Child is Hurting.”
I wrote this book from my experiences raising five kids, and dealing with the everyday hurts they face. As a mom, I found myself hurting for my kids, and wanting to do something to help them. Often however, what I did wasn’t always helpful. Early on in my parenting, I found myself being very overprotective. Instead of preparing them to deal with problems on their own, I was protecting them from pain.
Unfortunately, we live in a world where problems are a promise. Jesus said, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
My own emotional pain was hindering my ability to do the right thing for my children. Thanks to God’s wisdom and help from moms who walked this path before me, I was able to address many of my children’s issues in a healthier way.
I’d like to give away one book to a Vineyard Women’s blog reader. If you’d like to win, please leave a comment on this blog telling us one parenting lesson you’ve learned that has helped your child deal with pain. I’ll pick a random winner on Wednesday and send that winner an email. So please make sure you leave your email address in your comment. Share this blog with your friends so they can enter to win, and get some wise advice from other moms.
May God bless each and every one of you.
In His Love,
