Raising the boy

"Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word." Psalm 119:9

Raising this 3 yr old, mischievous, little angel drives me to my knees daily. Causes me to read every christian parenting book known to man...not just once, but twice!
Such challenges, frustrations, and joys I have never know before. Such responsibility.
We are not just raising a little boy, but a mature God-fearing man. I pray that he will grow up to be a man of character, conviction, and commitment.
God tells us that boys/children are a blessing to us, and as we aim them in the right direction, they will go on to bless many others. Just keep reminding yourself of that during the messy, loud years, and enjoy the blessing of boys.

I am so relieved to read this post, as the Good Lord Himself has blessed me doubly! I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old. . . both boys!

I too am driven to plead with God and read every book that has even a shred to do with raising a boy (James Dobson is great if you haven't read it yet! I'm currently reading Parenting isn't for Cowards!)

Thank you for writing this, made me feel so much better!
