Head on over toElisabeth Foss' blog post that helped me a great deal. I don't have all the outward signs of a child rebelling. There is no pink hair, drugs, alcohol or other things. But I have had an offspring make it clear that they do not want to be associated with me, the family, or our lifestyle. And it has been hard to understand. I was one of those women soaking in all the magazines and newsletters and books on how to be a Christian wife and mama, how to manage a household, how to home educate, etc. I had full expectation that all the children would grow up and carry on.....I guess I did think they would be immune to the ditches out there.
So read, be encouraged. While there may be no immunity, there is grace. And I am seeking it too.
