I'm always looking for opportunities to show my children how God is working in their life. Sometimes these moments happen while walking across a field, riding in a car, or scrubbing the dishes after dinner. These teachable moments that happen about 1,000 times a day are perfect times to open up lines of communication with my kids. Sometimes, I get too busy and put on my "I need to finish this work" hat and I forget to look for those teachable moments.
As I was driving the car with my two daughters and two of their friends as passengers, we were talking about how God works in our lives. I heard one of my girls lean over to her friend and say with a smile, "We have talks like this every day in my home. It's awesome!" I was so glad that she felt that way. I truly feel that everything we do is a waste of time if we aren't seeking Christ in the midst of it. Though I miss some of my opportunities, perhaps her statement shows me that I'm catching many of them for the glory of God and for the benefit of my sweet kiddos and their friends, as well as for myself.
