Today I'm thankful for the small group Bible study Steve and I have been attending. We've met together for 8 weeks with 9 0ther Christian couples to complete the Raise Up A Child study by Phil Tuttle, president of Walk Thru The Bible.
It's been a good study, with encouraging conversations, and wonderful fellowship. We haven't been able to stay and visit as long as we'd have liked since our teens were watching our younger kids, but we've still enjoyed getting to know the other couples better as we learn about godly parenting.
I confess that my perfectionist tendencies often leave me discouraged as I focus on my failures and weaknesses instead of my strengths. As we progressed through the study, I realized I was doing this, and had to work to think of things I was doing well instead. Postpartum hormones probably didn't help.
I'll miss the small group time, though I know our kids are glad it's almost over.
