Lord help me to always be faithful....even when things get hard. I pray that the kids will be inspired by my faithfulness and that their faith will be never wavering. One of my biggest challenges is being self controlled. I know that I can overcome this struggle. I know that if I will only turn to you it will become less and less of a weakness. Thank you for being the ultimate example of how a good parent deals w/ his children. Make me more like you, Lord. And let me give you all the glory. Amen.
