One of my favorite things to do each month is to participate on the Mom Mentor panel for Graham Blanchard. I love the questions we’re asked because it makes me take a moment to reflect on questions in my spiritual life, my life as a mom, and my child’s spiritual growth that I can easily overlook with the busyness of the day.
This month the question was, “As your children grow, what surprises or strikes you most about the way their spiritual life is developing?” It made me pause and reflect on how I’ve contributed to Anya’s spiritual foundation, but more importantly how she is developing her own relationship with Christ. This question also made me think about how as she moves through different stages in her life that her relationship with God will hopefully mature, and how I can encourage her in our day to day life to draw nearer to the Lord.
You can read my answer and what the other moms said over at Graham Blanchard. If you haven’t check out the website it is a great resource for all moms on this journey with their children. Also I would love to hear your answer to this question, so please feel free to comment!
