Nothing will send me tearfully reeling down memory lane than a few months spent putting together a resource for the mommies of toddlers!
As I took notes, sorted through old scrapbooks, researched "favorite" toys, books, and recipes, I couldn't help the feelings of nostalgia that began to flood my heart. Where, oh where, have these little snugglers gone?
The toddler years certainly were busy days. They were tiring days. They were stretching days.
They were also some of the best days of my life!
There was never a time that my children were more eager to learn, more eager to grow, and more eager to find their place in our family.
The days we spent teaching character have resulted in Jesus-loving young adults, who take their walk with the Lord seriously.
The days we spent reading book after book after book, have resulted in young adults who have the tools they need to pursue their passions, cultivate their curiosity, and refine their resumes.
The days we spent talking, laughing, and playing games around our gigantic kitchen table, have resulted in young adults who recharge with family, relax with friends, and reach out to strangers.
Those busy, tiring, and stretching days laid a firm foundation in the lives of the young adults I love so dearly and am proud to call my children and friends.
Does it just seem out of reach as you wearily put one foot in front of the other, slowly dragging through another day?
Trust me! It isn't impossible. In fact, it's easier than you would ever think! No, the work of parenting toddlers isn't easy, but the tools you need to produce terrific kids aren't hard to implement. They take work, but when you're working in the right direction, the work is all worthwhile!
Please take a moment to watch our pre-launch video. I'm excited about what we're about to offer to our partners and friends. I'm convinced that you'll find yourself encouraged, strengthened, and hopeful. I'm confident the tools and techniques work, because I've seen the fruit in countless young adults. There's more to come, but for now… Enjoy!
