18 summers. That’s all we get to work with as parents and then we have to launch these humans into the world and hope and pray they contribute something valuable to the world. We do need to give ourselves grace on the days when we’re just trying to survive, but we also can’t expect much if we are not parenting with intention. So if you’re tired of just throwing spaghetti on the wall, hoping that something sticks when it comes to raising kids, you’ll want to listen to some practical, grace-filled wisdom from author, speaker, and parent, Amy Carney.
Amy was an exhausted mama of 5 who was tired of just surviving, even before the days of quarantine. She realized that something had to change if she was going to look back on her parenting days without regret. Amy shares some perfect places to start which include writing a parenting purpose statement and making the most of mealtime with her conversation starters. If you have a big family and don’t know where to start, Amy suggests just starting with the oldest. Then just start being intentional with 30 minutes of the day or one hour a week. This is an unbelievably challenging time to parent, but it’s also an opportunity you don’t want to miss.
