Parenting should be full of faith, family and adventure, not dread, frustration and regret. Road Trip Parenting is a unique blog designed to serve as a fun, insightful, and practical resource for parents, pastors, and those who serve kids.
Parenting isn’t for a single season of life, we are parents forever. Also for those believers who don’t yet have a biological family, understand that we’re all raising kids in the sphere of influence we’ve been given. As we get older, it’s clear that we must acknowledge that we all have been given a perfect ‘heavenly’ father, and in that sense… we’re all being ‘parented’ by the Holy Spirit, and the wounds and struggles of our past can be healed.
My point is this, we’re all on a journey of faith and the shared stories and observations within this blog are meant to be a source of inspiration and hope. Life is messy, and often hard, but God’s grace is sufficient and the road doesn’t have to be walked alone or afraid.
