This week my WFMW tip is something that I have recently discovered in my parenting life. I am TERRIBLE when it comes to shopping and sticking to a list. One of my purposes as a mother is to teach my children to do things better than I do them. I am determined to teach my children to be better managers of God’s gifts than I am.
With this in mind, I have begun taking Girly Girl with me to the grocery store with me. Before we go in, we talk about how God has graciously blessed her father and me with good jobs that pay us more than we deserve to be paid…and how we must use this money wisely, and therefore we must stick to our list! (this is a great result of Monday Menu Planning)
I hope this is the beginning of some great lessons we both learn when it comes to managing God’s gifts….and it WORKS FOR ME!
