Be sure to join us this Sunday for Mother’s Day at one of our Sojourn campuses! In light of Mother’s Day, I was reflecting a bit this morning about parenting. My friend Doug Wolter recently posted about the difference between Over-Parenting and Missional-Parenting. Here are a few of his thoughts:
Much of our parenting is motivated by fear. Consequently, we’re more concerned with protecting our children from the world than preparing them to make a difference in this world. Gospel-centered, missional parenting is much different. It pictures parents as courageous warriors getting ready to release their children into battle.
Also, here are some great Mother’s Day craft ideas from SojournKids’ J-town Campus Director, Danielle West:
- Great Mother’s Day Coloring Sheets from Sojourn member, Mandy Groce
- Beautiful Little Bobby Pins
- Lovely Little Bookmark (made from finger prints and finger paint).
- Sweet Hand Print Flower with a Magnet
