A Boy Called Faithful — 18 Comments

  1. Hey!
    Thanks for commenting! What is the book called? That is very true what you said about a wife. I am not sure what my gift is, I don’t feel like am amazing at any one thing…

    By the way love your blog!

    There’s a book on my moms-must-have list,but you don’t need to be a mom to benefit. It’s about the gifts in you. Some people are servers–they’re really gifted at the cleaning up thing. I’m definitely not that. It’s something I have struggled with. Once I understand my strengths and weaknesses, I understood that I spend my time doing other jobs beautifully. A wife is not so much defined by her kitchen cleanliness as how she does other things. What’s your gift? While we all have to clean the kitchen eventually, our happiness isn’t contigent upon it-unless you’re a server gift:)

  2. Stopping by from SITS t say hi!

    Wow, what an insightful post…your boys are lucky to have such an awsome mama!

    Have a wonderful day!

  3. I’m so happy you found me, and then I was able to “meet” you! I love your blog, and your posts, and I really have to get some gardening done or else I would sit and read and read and read…

    Thankyou so much for sharing this encouragement about your son. I often think I’m alone in my son’s issues, and I’m finding more and more that I’m just not, and God is using all of our stories to encourage each other!


  4. Wow, your posts are very thoughtful and well written. I am not surprised you teach at College.

    The CAPD struck a chord with me. My oldest seems to struggle with hearing us, yet she was tested in school and they say her hearing is fine. I keep wondering if she’s just tuning us out or not focussing on us when she does hear us. Hmm something to think about.

  5. Thank you so much for sharing this. I think I really needed to hear this today. I am finding my struggle to be very emotional fraught with questioning whether I am doing the right thing. I know in my heart of hearts, I know without a doubt, that my child needs help beyond what my limited experience can provide. Thank you for your kind words and for sharing this. I know now that you can feel very alone on this motherhood path.

  6. i find this fascinating, having two sons of my own, although i have to admit, my eldest boy teaches me so much about compassion even though he’s not yet two yet… a though-provoking post. thank you!

  7. “There are moments in raising children, that we love by faith alone. There are moments of great failure that we hope by faith alone.”

    So wonderfully expressed 🙂

  8. Thank you for your comment on my blog. I came over to read yours and was so encouraged I read it aloud to ten year old Ravinia, my only child who yet displays a lot of what you mention. Thank you for posting this!

  9. It is a precious gift to your sons for you to see them through the eyes of Wisdom, discerning His Purposes for His Design of them. Thank you for your testimony. Thank you for your example. Thank you for your encouragement! 🙂
