Grace and Teens

Continuing my posts about raising teens . . .

I have found that although my teens may look and often act very grown up, they are still teens.

Things are borrowed from siblings without permission, possessions are sometimes broken, cars are sometimes dented, and life in general can sometimes be a little rocky.

But, I can try to keep my mouth shut until I have carefully planned what I should say, (instead of saying something that I’ll regret), and I can extend an extra measure of grace.

I can continue to be their biggest cheerleader, and point them to the greatest parent of all . . . their Heavenly Father.

Love REALLY does work miracles, and it never fails!

Stuff, and clothes and cars can be replaced, it’s a lot harder to fix relationships!

Tomorrow I’ll share two verses that have laid a foundation for raising teens who understand their purpose in life.

About Bonni

What happens when a Jewish girl from Philadelphia falls in love with and marries a Christian hog farmer from a small rural town 85 miles from her home? Well, in my case, I became a Christian, but struggled to be the loving wife and joyful mother to my 4 young sons. This blog was born in order to share one tip a day that I learned, that could now help other moms learn to handle life with patience, grace and joy!

    1. Ahhhh….text messaging, cell phones…our teens now have a ‘secret’ world in which to dwell and search for all of the wisdom that their young teen friends can give them. It adds a whole new dimension to parenting! Thanks for the comment! I’ve had issues with that also, and will be posting about it!
