Middle and High School has not been easy for us. I watched as all my friends post pics of report cards, GPAs, and college acceptances. As I viewed social media at times I was envious and discouraged; Wondering what I was doing wrong. When bad grades came in I punished, paid tutors, preached lol, prayed, cried, motivated (you name it). I knew my child was capable of better. So I did what I could, and depended on Gods Grace.
I share to encourage you to never give up on your children. Your seeds, prayers, discipline, and tears are not in vain!!! When you recognize mistakes you’ve made in parenting (I’ve had many) repent, ask the children for forgiveness and move on!!!!
I’m so excited to report that my child who used to barely pass English finished the year with a B+ average and didn’t have to take the final exam!!! We went from having no idea to what she wants to do, to deciding to attend community college with vision of becoming an entrepreneur. Don’t be defined by others yard sticks of success and miss the blessings that are right before you.
Kayla, mommy is so proud of you! You never gave up. It has finally clicked for you and your future is so bright!!!! To God be the Glory for the great things He has done and will do through you! Love you babe *happy tears*
