This essay by Tony Woodlief will move you and make you appreciate the blessings of life God has given us all. I couldn’t help but think of the eight precious children God has given me and how I must cherish each moment with them. His thoughts make me realize that life is a precious thing best lived mixed with large amounts of faith.
As a mom of eight I know firsthand how precious children are. We live in a society that tends to think of children as burdens instead of the blessings that God intended them to be. I’ve been listening to a series on “Revive Our Hearts” with Nancy Leigh DeMoss on the topic of “Embracing God’s Gift of Children.” Her guest this week is Holly Elliff, a pastor’s wife and mom of eight. I appreciate hearing encouraging programs like this on the topic of children especially living in a world where people look at me as if I’m crazy for having a large family.
You can read the transcript of today’s program or listen to the show on the internet.
