The Eyes of a Child: Lessons from my Son
We often view children just through the lens of parenting. We are in charge of teaching them and shaping their character. We are to teach them about life and about faith. However, we rarely take time to see them as our teachers. What does it mean to become like a child? Do we really see children as teachers of faith? What can we learn about life through how a child approaches life?
The goal of this series is to pick out one lesson I learn from my son each day about life, about faith, and about love. It is not about lessons I am learning about motherhood. Instead it will be a lesson about living in this world that my son seems to have mastered innately. I have started a little list over the last few days, but it is a short list, so I hope that over these 31 days, it will grow.
I hope you will join me!
