Give Your Children Grace

If you missed this week’s Girl Talk, then I have all the update for you right here!

This week’s speaker was the inspirational Elyse Fitzpatrick, and she gave a wonderful and powerful message about giving our children grace! With her amazing sense of humor, Elyse touched on the basics of how giving our children the gospel is the most importing gift we will ever be able to give them.

She spoke very openly about the mistakes she made as a mother, and how instead of using the gospel she gave her children rules–something she does not encourage mothers to do. Elyse said there were only two rules that we as Christians, and especially as mothers, should always follow:

1. To love God with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength.
2. Love your neighbor as you love yourself.

These are two important instructions that will help women be the Christians mothers that God has made them to be. Elyse left us with many statements, but the one that stood out the most was: Being a Christian parent is about raising the ladder toward heaven and raising our children up to it!

For more wonderful parenting insight, check out Elyse Fitzpatrick’s books in the Harvest Bookstore, I’m sure you will find one that will touch your heart!

And ladies please don’t forget that next week is the last meeting for Girl Talk! The very artistic and creative ladies of Harvest have put together the Virtue Lovely Market. It will be an all-day event, filled with homemade arts and crafts. Come prepared to buy some beautiful items and get ready to have one last amazing night of Girl Talk!
