Therefore, God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every morning, so that at the name of…

If we’re also real for a moment, it’s also overwhelming, humbling, challenging, refining, faith-filling, exhausting, interesting, and maybe cause you to sigh every once in a while. No one said parenting would be easy. It takes work, dedication, perseverance, allowing you to be desperate for God for help and guidance. When parents find themselves in times of joys and struggles, there is guidance from Jesus to raise children who can find their place…
