I realize my views and beliefs may offend people and know that is not my intention. I hope that my words provide clarity and provoke families to really give thought to this topic.
I have been accused of parenting out of a spirit of fear, and I assure you, I took some time to think that over and I honestly would not call it fear. I feel it is wisdom. I believe God does what He can to protect us and guide us. However, He gave us free will, and we make mistakes. He forgives and has taken on our sin for those who believe. My point is, I want God to use me and my experience to enlighten and hopefully help others. He does that you know, He uses us and our trials for good.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
