Gift giving this year is going to look a bit different and I want each present I give to my children to reflect my parenting goals for them.
Goal #1: I want my children to be captivated by the person and work of Jesus Christ, to be amazed at the love and goodness of their Heavenly Father and to fully depend on the perfect and continuing work of the Holy Spirit in their lives.
Goal #2: I want my children to grow up in an environment that teaches them to prize, cultivate and express their personal creativity.
Goal #3: I want my kids to enjoy learning about nature and exploring the great outdoors. I want them to experience the freedom to physically exhaust themselves as they learn to use and master their physical strengths and weaknesses.
Goal #4: to give them a gift that encourages them in and rewards them for an area in their life in which they are especially gifted or are making great progress.
