Maybe I am being irresponsible....

It is my prayer that all of you who read this will never lose the sight that what we have been given is a blessing from the Lord. I pray that the desire to give back and not be attached to the "stuff" that consumes our lives to become more valuable than our relationship with Jesus.

To me, these kids are worth it. Jesus is worth it. If you are not familiar with this little guy, I want you to click here and read about where he came from.

No, I have no idea where my children's college fund will come from nor do I know how we are going to retire.

Living life "normally" for me includes building relationships with others so they may be pointed to growing closer to Jesus. Living normally, for me, means using everything that we have been given to bring Glory and honor to the One who deserves it.

Please, view this sermon and let it wreck your heart. I am praying for your heart to be wrecked in Jesus' name because it is only through Him that it can happen.

There are student loans for college students and retirement is not a Biblical concept (not that it's wrong to do so, necessarily, either!)

Lots of kids have had atypical childhoods because their parents were brave. The kiddos will be just fine.

Love you!

It's not irresponsible! It's the biggest love your kids will ever see or feel or experience. They will be better for it!! I'm touched!
p.s. will you quit wrecking and challenging my heart? It's uncomfortable!! ha :)
