And now I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified. Acts 20:32

When my kids were little, I’d plan our summer away with fun adventures from June to September. Sure, it was a lot of work, but I was completely in charge. I could plan whatever I wanted for whenever I wanted it. Not so much anymore.

With my boys being 17 and 15, with lots of friends, girlfriends, and jobs, they want to go their own way and plan their own fun. As much as I support that, their younger sister and I still want some family time together. Yet aligning our schedules is getting very complex. I can’t seem to keep track of it all.

I know every mother goes through it and eventually comes out on the other side. But the journey is rocky and riddled with pitfalls.

  1. So, Claire, as challenging as this period is in your boys’ growing, seemingly wanting to be independent with friends and all instead of family, you already have the answer in the Acts 20:20 you quoted, and I know you also have the trust to surrender your children into God’s Loving care at this challenging period for you and them in their growing up … knowing He’ll never never abandon them or you, and in His time you’ll enjoy many satisfying family gatherings with each of them. What a gift you give to other parents who experience this painful challenge with their teenagers! May they be inspired and comforted to read and believe what you quoted here in Acts 20:32.


    • Isn’t it wonderful, Jackie, how God always provides through His Word? It seems every time I am in need, I just open the Bible and He gives me my answer. It took me a long time to realize the Bible can be that personal, but oh what a game changer now that I know.
