Motivational Monday – January 26, 2015 Admitting Mistakes

on January 26, 2015

This quote from the wonderful Billy Graham couldn’t have come on a better day for me, what a great reminder.


I have definitely made some (ok many) parenting mistakes I wish I could take back.  I have learned that stress is one of my biggest factors for “losing it”.  I have also learned it’s not only ok but actually a great example to my children to admit when I have been wrong.  When I have acted or spoken out of anger or when I have not handled a situation so well.

In turn we should also ask God for forgiveness.  For he is a God of love, mercy and grace.

James 5:16  New International Version
“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

    I’m not a parent, but I have thought about this a lot for when I do have children. Very inspiring quote!

  2. Amen, amen. I’m a parent to one 9 year old and boy, have I missed it on several occasions. But like you said, as long as we confess, it can lead to a great example of faith to our children. We are ALL human. Have a super week!

Would love to hear from you!
