I would love for My girls to carry their love and devotion in their heart of our Lord and God. Carry herself well and resepectfully and teach her children the same. Most peoples morals and values have gone down the toilet. And i want her to teach her children that those are what make us human and make us better people.

Such a great question because so many times I've heard people say "I don't want to ever be like my parents!" I've never really thought about what I want for my boy when he has kids! But thinking about it now... besides me wanting him to grow up and commit his life to God and serve Him... (he's not even one yet) I'd really want him to have a sense of humour :) I love making Noah laugh and I hope he'll pass that joy and zest for life to his kids one day :)

I want my children to believe that in and through God, all things work for the best. I've always taught my children where their source of strength comes from. Hopefully it will be handed down to my grandchildren and on and on.

my kids lie on a daily basis... they are 8 and 5 ....it must be an age thing and its about the stupidist things that i know they are lying about... i just keep telling them that Jesus gets so disappointed when they lie and how they don't need to lie ... sometimes my daughter will actually tell on herself... the one thing that i believe will help them is if i never lie to them like my mother never lied to me.... and that built a solid foundation for me in my future to not lie... God bless my mother for that..

Amen to that, Jill. We are battling our 4-y/o grandson with that now. We use the naughty chair technique; but with lying, because I HATE that so much, the first lie was 4 min., the second one 8, he just got done with 12 yesterday. If I play my cards right, he will spend his entire day in time out (lol) Just kidding! We love him to pieces, but hate the lying.

One thing I am seeing in my children, which I love, is that they don't take the word of every wind of doctrine, they take the words of a sermon and dissect it to see if it lines up with the Word. I have always told them 'I don't care if an Angel of God comes down, if he tells you something that doesn't line up with the Word, don't believe it!' This has served them well, and keeps them from being blown off track. Also the drive to be a God chaser! Thank you, Jesus!

Good Question!!! Right now we are working on LOVE even when it is hard... I am teaching them that if Jesus tells us to love our enemies, then it must be a choice to love. So when they are mad at their siblings, we work on choosing love and then carrying it out in action. It is amazing to see one get hurt by another and the other choosing to respond in love. I want them to know that love is way more than just fleeting feelings of affection or passion like today's media poisonously portrays it. Wow that was a mouthful! Yay for a good question Aisha!!!

My Love for the Lord, belief in the Power and Importances of Prayer, and being willing to help others. If they do these three things.

My love for others, without judging.  The way we are all open in our family to discussions no matter how uncomfortable the topic may get. To parent their children in a way that pleases God.

My love for Christ and that He runs the household and they raise their children in the ways of the Lord.
