My Heart's Desires

This weekend I had the blessed opportunity to go the Beth Moore Simulcast on The Desires of the Heart. Just as I've always wished I had a hobby or "a cause", I've wondered what exactly are my heart's desires? One overwhelming desire that hit me this weekend and has run like a theme in my life over the past few months is that of growing my children up in the Lord.

It is easy for me to get caught my own little world of getting the groceries for dinner and making sure the laundry is done (all things I want to do to bless my family and household) but while I'm doing those things am I bringing glory to God and pointing to Him or am I making my children feel that they are hindering me from completing my "all important task"? I am super excited about doing my own preschool activities in the house with the girls this fall, but am I above all teaching them about the Lord and having a godly character? These are the things on my heart.

Oh friend I am right there with you! Thank you for this reminder for myself. I want to be intentionally teaching all my kids at all of their different levels the joy of the Lord.

Hi Heather!

I went to the Beth Moore simulcast this weekend too. It's made me think a lot about my heart's desires too. Thanks for sharing yours. :)
