"I'm not perfect or flashy.  I've got issues.  I've failed.  But I'm growing.  I'm carried.  I'm not what I used to be.  I'm not yet what I will be.  Life's got struggles.  But, in Christ, there is so much hope.  He's made a way for me to live life very much alive."

 

Parenting.  It's complicated and exhausting.  But it's not true that it has to be a losing battle.
