Staying Close to God When You’ve Got Young Kids

How can we maintain a thriving relationship with God as busy parents?

How can we impart a lasting love for God and His word to our children?

What are the biggest challenges faced by Christian parents today?

Is it a good idea to have three kids in three years? (Short answer: NO. Heh heh.)

And how in the name of all that is good and holy can moms find ten minutes to ourselves to read and pray?!

I recently had the chance to sit down and talk about the joys and challenges of Christian parenting with Jon Sherwood, of JonSherwood.com.

You can watch the video here. (It’s only 16 minutes long, so I recommend giving the kids a bowlful of Cheerios, and locking yourself in the bathroom for some extended “me time…”) 

Hope you enjoy! And check out Jon’s website while you’re there—it’s a fantastic, faith-building resource!

    Thank you for this as I’ve been repeating the biblical mantra, “he gently leads those who have young”, from Isaiah but it’s not a free pass to check out. But it’s very difficult to be split so many directions and running off fumes at times.
    I really appreciate this!

      I know the feeling, Angela! I think this is one of the biggest challenges we are facing—we have SO MANY demands on our time. It gets overwhelming. One of the toughest things for me has been distinguishing what I should and shouldn’t try to do at this stage in my life. As my wise mother has always said, “All you can do…is all you can do!”
