In need of God’s mercy

Father God,
I have had a really tough day.  I was angry and frustrated.  I yelled and treated my kids poorly. I feel really unworthy now.  You gave me the gift of these children, and I did not behave as so.  Forgive me.  I need your mercy and forgiveness.  I need wisdom to raise my kids properly.
Amen

Three Rules I would like to work on:
1.  Obey right away.
2.  Pick up your messes.
3.  Be kind to others.

Right now getting everyone to follow these three rules seems like climbing a huge mountain.  One step at a time we MUST get better at them.   I love my kids.  I want to like them too.  Lately this has become a real challenge for me.  Prayer would be appreciated.  Thanks.

  1. I'm praying… and know exactly where your coming from! Just curious… have you ever read any of the following books?
    Shepherding a Child's Heart by Ted Tripp
    Say Goodbye to Whining, Complaining, and Bad Attitudes… in you and your kids! by Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller http://www.effectiveparenting.org/
    Good and Angry: Exchanging Frustration for Character… in you and your kids! by Turansky & Miller http://www.effectiveparenting.org/
    To Train Up a Child by Michael & Debbie Pearl- http://shop.nogreaterjoy.org/
    Homeschooling with a Meek and Quiet Spirit-
    http://www.titus2.com/ecommerce/products/prod_listing.php/1120

    The above listed Christian books have provided me with some very helpful tactics, practical methods, and MUCH encouragement as a homeschooling mom. The Turansky/Miller books even have "Family Together Times" or "Bringing It Home" times to give almost a script to implement the new techniques.

    Baby's awake… gotta go. Hope this helps. Let me know.
    Blessings,
    :)MichelleEdited by blessingsundreamtof on Aug. 10, 2009 at 7:15 AM
