Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Prayer and Praise on Parent's Night

I'm not one who usually frets and worries too long about things, but the anticipation of finding great teachers for my children has caused much anxiety in my little heart. I know that my children's teachers will greatly influence their development - socially, emotionally, and academically - so having a good match for my child has been a huge priority to me.

So I've been praying for my son's 1st grade teacher since we graduated from kindergarten. Thankfully not too much fretting, but off/on praying. I know that's what I'm supposed to do when I get worried - admit my worry, acknowledge God's hugeness, ask him to provide, and ask him to work in my heart.

Tonight I'm singing praises. I met my son's new teacher at Parent's Night tonight, and she seems great. A 19-year veteran teacher with passion for education and warmth for people. Very organized, yet welcoming.

We already know about 30% of the kids in his class, and they're great! There will be a LOT of energy in the little classroom, but many loving families.

So I'll say it outloud - PRAISE GOD for providing for my little boy. And now I'll transition my prayers to strength, wisdom and compassion for his loving teacher. And for the children, I'll pray for healthy development, lots of learning, and good relationships.

Hi Ann! Such good counsel! I am leaving in a few hours to meet my son's 2nd grade teacher and have been trying to pray more/worry less about who he is paired with. God knows the best match for him & I will trust Him to provide for us this year. Thanks for the encouragement--

Hi Ann! Thanks for leaving a post on my blog. I don't blog as often as I'd like. You can write me at risabush(at)hotmail(dot)com. I actually tried to make a North Cheatham Parents website a few years ago with fun things to do. it didn't work out for me, but it looks like you are doing well with it! It's nice to see someone else from "the View" in the blogosphere too!
