I keep a notebook for each of my children. Each child’s book is unique outside and in. None of my three kids can read yet, but I write letters to them and copy some of my prayers for them. My hope is that some day, when they are 15 or 22 or 40, they will read my entries and be strengthened by these individualized encouragements from the person who knew them better than anyone else on earth for those special early years; I hope too that that they will be emboldened by the truths I imparted, laugh at the memories I recorded and see how God answered their mother’s prayers.
Here on the blog I will share some of my entries, not the personal ones, but the ones I think my kids won’t mind me sharing. My hope for this series is to encourage moms like me who are dreaming big for their little ones and desire to disciple them both now and later.
