I may need to repeat the process for a few weeks or months, maybe years, but eventually fruit will bloom. Real fruit – not the type of change my kids do to appease me in the moment and shut me up from harassing them. Such real heart change because my children internalized a principle we have been working on over time is beautiful to see.
I have to keep revisiting these principles, reminding myself of why from Scripture these things are the scaffold around which I want to parent. I hope something there is encouraging to you today too as you disciple yours.
