Mom Challenge: Day 5

Challenge #12:

Pray for wisdom in mothering your child.

I ask my husband, "What do you think I should do about today's mom challenge? It says to pray for wisdom in mothering your child, should I re-phrase that? Or just skate around it?"

I am not religious. I was raised Christian. Most of my friends are very religious. My family is all religious. I respect many people and many different faiths. I just choose not to practice any. I get a lot of criticism for this from other people. It's usually best for me to avoid this topic.

My husband tells me, "Why wouldn't you put what you think? It's your blog isn't it? People should like and read your blog for who you are, not who you pretend to be."

Such a wise man.

I am always overly afraid of offending people. But this is my blog and my place to write. So my husband asks me, "what do you do besides pray for wisdom?"

Instead of praying for wisdom in mothering my child, today I will:

  • Look up one new parenting technique
  • Ask others for their best bit of parenting advice
  • Practice patience in mothering my child today
Today I will promise myself to continually gain wisdom by educating myself and taking advice from others on how to be the best parent I can be. 

I also promise to continue to be myself and always respect the beliefs of others.


  1. Hi! I'm Vickilicious from and I'm following you back! I like what you decided to do today. One bit of advice from another parent, if I may is: Don't forget what you felt at his age. Bring back to the surface all your thoughts and feelings of that age so that you can better understand where he 'comes from' when he says or does something.See things fromhis perspective! Try not to think as an adult, it will help your relationship with him and how you deal with stuff! It's not easy but I try hard myself!

  2. Thank you! It is so hard to not get caught up in parenting and being an adult. I definitely agree with taking a step back and remembering what being his age was like! :)
