Talking "God" Everyday

I read an article this week on the importance of talking about God each day to your kids. For some the thought of this might seem overwhelming or downright impossible but rest assured, even though your child might treat you as if your opinion doesn't matter, they look to you for more than you realize.

I have found this to be true in my own life. I was raised in a home where God was important and church was valued but discussions about God initiated by my parents were a rarity at best. Looking back and talking with my parents, they often felt inadequate to answer my questions or were unsure where they stood on an issue themselves. The most important thing to know is that it is ok if you don't have all of the answers. None of us do!!!!! But we do have the Holy Spirit as a guide for those difficult times. Secondly, you can't feed someone if you are starving yourself. If you desire your child to walk with God, you MUST lead by example and walk with Him diligently yourself. The article was both eye opening and encouraging. I have linked it below if you would like to read further. God Bless!!!!!
