This past week a mom that had attended a class two years ago spoke up. She shared that when she had gone through the class before she heard for the first time that God calls us all to the same standard without regard for different personality types.
That hit her because at that time she was dealing with a son that was easily angered. It had become a habit for her to brush off his lack of self-control with the thought, “Oh, he has a temper just like Grandpa.”
She then shared that she has really been working with her son for the past two years. With a combination of correction, non-conflict practice and prayer she has a much different son. Isn’t that something to get excited about?!
Note: the change was not over night. This mom didn’t just correct, she also prepared her son for difficult situations by talking them through with him before they arrived. And this mom also understands the power of prayer, both for herself to be the mom her son needs and for her son to experience God’s power to overcome his emotions.
Rejoice, again I say rejoice!
