Update and a quick question

We got an email from our family coordinator and apparently had mis-added a number on our financial statement, which means we have to re-do and have it notarized AGAIN!  (This makes financial statement #3!)  ARGH!  Homestudy is finished and reviewed, so we are so very close to sending off the I-600.  Please pray for direction and clarity as we trudge forward.  All the changes in Ethiopia make each step a step of faith...not that they weren't before, but my goodness there are so many more unknowns at this point. I contemplate the yet-to-be-announced adventure that the Lord is placing us on (mentioned in my last post) I would love to ask you a question...

What is your #1 goal for your children? 

I look forward to your answers!  Have a blessed week!


  1. Our #1 goal for our precious girl is to glorify God and to be satisfied in Him.

  2. Do I have to have just one? :)

    Seriously, I have hopes for my children, but no goals. To have a goal for my child is for me to be trying to live their life or to be trying to control an outcome. I don't believe I have that kind of power.

    That said, I'm guessing what you really meant was what is my #1 goal in how I want to raise them. It sounds a little pious, but my number one goal is teach them about loving the Lord and praying that they will. At the end of our lives, nothing else matters.

  3. My #1 goal for my children is that they allow God to use them in whatever way He wants.


  4. My #1 goal for my children is for them to fully allow God to lead their lives! What could they do for the Kingdom!?

  5. That's a hard one! Long term, I want them to grow daily in their relationship with Christ. I want them to LIVE. I want them to experience love in all of its meanings. Short term, I want Heather to sleep through the night, Allison to take a greater interest in personal hygiene, and Michael to trust me when I say books are fun!

  6. My number one goal for my boys (3 and 4 years old, brought home from Ethiopia 11 weeks ago) is that they would come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
    In His Love,
    Amy, Gloria's friend!


Let's keep the conversation going...
