I love Ruth and Richard Littlehales, and their children very much. Their son is my Godson! They are some of the most genuine and faithful people you could ever hope to come across. I was part of a house church (glasshouse) they led a number of years ago and it was one of the most wonderful and challenging things I’ve ever been a part of.
Basically Mrs. Wang is brilliant – she and her husband David are some of the most hospitable people I’ve ever encountered. They teach me so much about being church but more often than not it’s not with their words.
Rachel Borland is one of the most wonderful people I’ve ever met. She and her husband John are the only people I know who make it look like having kids doesn’t totally disrupt their lives.
I’ve got two gorgeous kids aged 7 and 5, and being a parent has been a like a madcap adventure. Before me and my husband had kids, people gave us loads of advice and we really thought we were listening. But maybe we weren’t, so here are 30 things that either people didn’t tell us or we just didn’t hear.
I’m so grateful to have Nicole contributing here; you guys are in for a treat!
Thanks so much Nicole.
We learn just as much from our children as they do from us. It’s not a cliché if it’s deeply true. Being a child is frustrating and glorious. They are experts at honest living. Every parent needs a reminder to see their kids as teachers not just tiny drunk comedians we are trying to keep alive.
