Introducing Calla Ann. She came into the world this past Tuesday evening October 11th. While having a child is always stressful, joyful, and changes everything in life (at least for a few days) it is an awesome experience. It reminds me constantly of the joy, privilege, and great responsibility parents have.
Yet all too often I can view parenting as a drudge rather than a joy and awesome responsibility. More often than not the drudgery comes when I have my eyes fixed too closely on the here and now rather than on the long term. It is times like these that resources like Crossway’s: Parenting series have been helpful. My wife and I have been watching one short 2 minutes video each evening as we head to bed and they have been the added encouragement we need right now.
So head on over to https://www.crossway.org/parenting/ and enter your email and sign up for their 14 day parenting in God’s way journey with Paul David Tripp. It is an excellent and timely resource for us and I pray it will be for you as well. And enjoy the weekend with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day.
