Role Models :: When I Grow Up...

hanging out

The other morning, Joshua, out of the blue, says to me, "When I grow up, I want to be just like Daddy." Ahhh.... So sweet, right? But then I asked why? "Because he listens to God." Wow! How amazing is that! That he would pick that out? It made me remember just how much our children watch us and form beliefs and patterns of thinking that will shape who they are as adults. It's a tremendous responsibility to teach them, but it's also so rewarding and amazing. God trusts us with so much! And the cool thing is that we can lean on Him for the wisdom we need to be awesome role models for our children.
