Oh Janet- thank you for this post. I really needed to read this bit of encouragement today. And I am going to take your advice and DO something instead of just complaining about it. I am ready for PEACE in my home.

Thank you for living out your walk with us!

You speak to every Mothers heart. I'm praying for my children, my youngest returned to school today after 10 days home with mono, and my oldest is often challenged with homework battles. I'm frustrated because she is a straight A student, and her grades drop to B, C and D because her assignments are late. Last week I made a big decision- I do NOT want to have a relationship with my 5th grader that is centered around homework! I want more in my relationship with her and not 95% of our time spent on homework, fighting about homework, or punishing her for not doing her homework. I'm done with the Homework Fights. I put this in God's hands, asking Him to help her learn self-discipline. I'm asking Him for patience, kindness and understanding in my relationship with my daughter. Thank you for this post- It touches my heart.


Janet, I cannot begin to express how timely this post was for me. Thank you so much for sharing this very private piece of you. I've heard people say things like "I don't get this "blogging" stuff". For me, this kind of personal peek into someone's else's struggles are what I enjoy about blogs. It helps me to see I am not alone! My struggles are the same struggles others face every day. It is such a help and blessing to know such a real way. Your head knows it, but your heart can trick into believing otherwise.


Thank you for putting you feelings and faith into words - and for sharing it with us so this can change us as well. It is so easy to forget, in our busy lives, to go to our God for help and courage. So easy to forget that he is the one that can give us all that we need for our day.


God has used you (and your blog) to speak to me on so many occasions--and He has done it again with this entry. Thank you for writing words that I am feeling, and words that I needed to hear. May God bless you and give you a peace that passes all understanding!


Oh wow, I soooo needed to read this post RIGHT NOW. Thank you, Janet, for letting God use you to speak to me (and the others that need this too)! :)


I want to chime in and also say thank you for listening to the prompting that told you to share this. Thank you for reminding me, and teaching me. Thank you for letting God share His message through you - I needed it. I really needed to be reminded of this, and want to thank you for sharing it with me.
