Sarah Mae and Sally Clarkson have recently teamed up to give us a webinar series called ‘Discipleship and Discipline’. After seeing it being offered I was intrigued and quickly signed up to do a review. I wasn’t sure what I would be getting at first. I knew it would be good, but thought that it might just be some of the things that I had heard before.
The first thing that struck me is that Sally Clarkson and Sarah Mae have a heart for their children and secondly a heart for moms. They truly want to see us succeed. And, if you are struggling as a mom, this series would be a definite encouragement.
The webinar is broken up into 4 days and you can watch the sessions at your leisure. I thoroughly appreciated being able to pause the video and re-watch a section so that I could mull over what was being said.
I don’t want to give away too much of the good stuff, but this series was awesome! God really worked to help me view my children and parenting in a different light.
Two of the many things that I have taken away from the series so far have been the idea of getting to know your child, really know them, and what they need as a little person. Are they introverted, extroverted, shy, outgoing, need extra hugs? And, secondly that I need to accept them where they are. For me this means giving of my introverted self to my extroverted son. It means that I can’t expect my other son to have complete self control at the age of 3 because, well, he’s 3.
Sally said something that has burrowed into my heart, and I hope that it will for you, too. She said that once she gave herself over to the task of mothering, she fell in love with her children (not exactly a direct quote). That’s my hope for all of us, that we fall in love with our children.
