Partnering with you in your child's formation
The recent events in the news and our community have left us with heavy hearts.
As parents, we can sometimes feel torn about how much to share with our children and what is appropriate for their ages. With each child, we consider what they are ready for and pray for God’s wisdom in these matters.
I have an older son who is a local police officer. Because of this, I was hesistant to share recent news with my younger child. Would he be worried about his brother’s safety? How do I explain discrimination? How can I help him learn from these events without keeping him in a protective bubble?
I thought about this and prayed for days before bringing it up over Legos. God gave me the words and helped me to frame the sad events in a way that was helpful to my son. With a child-like faith, my son was able to see a complex situation through the lens of our faith. There is evil in our world, darkness…but God is with us, shining a light and giving us hope in the scary times. In heartbreak, we are called to pray. He is with us. Immanuel.
As stories continue to unfold in the aftermath of recent events, we witness God’s hand and see His amazing work rising from the ashes. I am grateful my young boy will also get to see this and continue to learn how our God is a redemptive and loving God who keeps His promises to His people.
