When I drive the kids to school or pick them I try my hardest to engage them in conversation.

I LOVE moments like that! It’s always so cool to get the litle glimpses of how God is working on our kids.
That is awesome, and so very encouraging. I don’t yet have kids, but very often I think about days like this. I get scared that I won’t know how to start the conversation or answer the questions. Thanks for sharing 🙂
This gives me hope that maybe I won’t be so shy about teaching my children about God. (I’m so shy that I have a really hard time praying out loud even in front of my husband.)
You are a great mom! I’m totally inspired to deepen the conversations I have with my kids…
That’s a pretty amazing conversation to have in ten! Way to seize the moment…what a great mama!
Jamie…the part that catches my breath the most is your honesty with him about you being lost and not loving God at one point. I have never thought about explaining it to Emily that way and she is full of questions these days. Derek and I have worked with youth (high-schoolers) for over 10 years now and the one thing that I would say our kids want to hear the most from us is the truth! It is such an awesome thing that what came to your mind was just telling Cayden the truth! D and I pray that all the time that more than anything we will always be open and honest with them about where we’ve been and how God has changed us and that we will never hesitate to tell them we are sorry!
Awesome conversation with your sweet boy…I can’t wait til all your babies are under one roof and we get to hear those conversations!:) Continuing to pray hard!
