    No matter the “side” your own with recent events, this post is exactly what we need to share with our kids. I am sharing today – beautiful!

      Thank You! I’m so happy you found this helpful. It just seems like manners and common courtesy would go a long way right now.

    Independent thought is SO important. Teaching our children to think for themselves gives them confidence! Great read!

      Sam, it’s a pretty tough lesson for kids to learn to be independent, but I’m hoping that it begins to sink in, and hoping that we can always be a good example for them to look to. Thanks for taking time to read.

    Thank you for the reminder not to assume the worst about people. Quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to become angry.

      We have to realize that most people make decision with convictions, and have reasoning behind their logic. Also, I think that it’s possible to have conversation, and even persuasion, but not if we come to someone in a boastful manner. Thanks for stopping by Miri!

    Amen! We need to take every opportunity to train our babies to respond according to his word. <3

      Amy, yes! I always say, it’s ok to fall down, but you have to learn to get back up.

    Great post! I wrote a comment for somebody’s post on a similar subject where I mentioned that the main things we teach our children don’t changed based upon who our President is. We still need to teach right from wrong, standing up for right, and that not everybody does what is right (including adults).

      Absolutely Lauren! Our decisions are our own, we should remain sure and steady in them, not waver based on outside influence.

    Love this! So true–“we will teach them what we’ve been teaching them their entire lives. Jesus is King and He sits on the throne. ”
    That’s what we are doing with our kids. So important to teach them Biblical truths now while they’re young to establish a firm foundation but at the same time being kind to others who disagree with us.

      I think that may be why so many kids right now are spiraling out of control. What they knew as “right” and “true” has been pulled out from under them, and they don’t know how to deal. So Sad. You’re right, we must continue to give our kids a firm foundation to stand on. Thanks for taking time Amanda!

    I love how you said that accepting your loss doesn’t necessarily mean backing down from your convictions. So true! Thanks for sharing this, mama!

      Thanks Lauren! It’s so true, it’s the Old “you win some, you lose some” theory. That doesn’t mean we have to change who we are. Thanks for stopping by!
