“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28, NASB).
When our adult sons were young boys, I remember telling my mother, “This mother thing is not that hard.”
I still remember her answer: “The bigger the boys get, the bigger the problems get.”
My mother was right. We love our boys and are blessed to be their parents. But the truth is, at times, being a parent can be hard and stressful. As a family, we’ve had both amazing and troubled times. Over the years, my husband and I learned that prayer is crucial not only to marriage, but parenting as well.
