Raising a River

As the months have passed during this first year of our son’s life, I’ve realized that my husband and I must be intentional in how we raise him.  This prompted me to think of 3 things that I want to pass on to our son.  Why 3 things?  For some reason I like to categorize things in groups of 3s.


So, the 3 things I want to pass on to our son are 1. How to walk with Jesus Christ, 2. How to “keep on the sunny side of life,” and 3. How to be his authentic self.

To me, there is nothing more important than our son choosing to follow Jesus one day. This is our biggest prayer for him. Secondly, I want him to live with a different perspective on life than I’ve had for most of mine. I want him to live with a positive mindset, seeing the glass always as half full. Thirdly, I believe that we please God when we live as the creation that He designed us individually to be.  Just as a bird glorifies God when he flies, we glorify God when we use the gifts, talents and personality that He gave us.  Be who He made you to be.
