What is "Building A House"?

"Building A House" is a blog about my journey back to God. The name comes from Proverbs 24:3-4 (The Message), "It takes wisdom to build a house, and understanding to set it on a firm foundation; it takes knowledge to furnish its rooms with fine furniture and beautiful draperies."

No, this isn't going to be a blog about making my house look pretty - at least not pretty on the OUTSIDE. But, I'm going to be working on getting my house
"pretty" on the SPIRITUAL side. I'm coming back from a pretty dark place in my life after losing 8 babies to miscarriage. This blog is about my journey back
to the Lord.

Proverbs 22:6

"Point your kids in the right directions - 
when they're old they won't be lost." 
Proverbs 22:6 (The Message)

Yes, this verse is talking about training our children in the way of the Lord. But, does that look the same for each child? Nope. Every child is different and God has a specific purpose for them. One of our goals as parents is to figure out - with God's help - what purpose God has for our kids and then guide them and train them to follow His will for their lives. Not always an easy task when we have so many dreams and aspirations for our kids. Having dreams for our children is fine and dandy, but do OUR dreams follow GOD'S dreams?
