The first is Hannah's blog, which I am posting in it's entirety to save you a click and the other, is a letter my Teresa wrote to a young girl whose mom just had surgery.
God knew I needed this confirmation in my life--to see my children purposely choose God is one of the most thrilling aspects of being a parent because I know it's REAL for them. I know that when their faith in a living, loving God is genuine, they will be a success in life. Jobs do not make them a success. Making 5,6 figures do not make them a success. "Success" comes from living a life of faith in God, provided by the sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ. Honestly, if I know my children are purposely living for Jesus Christ, I know they will be guided by Him, empowered by Him and literally, given all they need to know how to live, through the power of His Word. II Tim 3:16,17
