Fall has always been a favorite season.  As a kid, it meant fun and the beginning of a new school year.  Fall still feels like a second new year.   

After reading the book, Free to Focus by Michael Hyatt, I decided to set a Parenting goal.    

This all got me wondering as to why we need to set goals when God is in charge.  After all, I believe that God will provide.  And he has …

Psalm 119:105 ~

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Our ultimate goal is to raise disciples.  There are many life milestones that give me parenting opportunities along the way.

I started by focusing on my kids as individuals, and on their current stages.  

One son is transitioning to Running Start.  His needs are ensuring that his college classes will transfer to the University.  

Our other son can use some help transitioning to high school.  Like study tips, time management skills, and even skincare.

Through prayer and petition (Phill 4:6-7), I can actively assist my children by praying with other moms.   Moms in Prayer gives me peace in parenting.  Joining together with other believers provides wise counsel.  
What comes to mind for your kids?  Try choosing one thing each and break it down into small actionable things.  Be sure to write it down and re-read it throughout this fall quarter.  And Pray.

Proverbs 16:9 ~

A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.
