I have to argue that three-year-old toddlers are more of a challenge to parent than two-year-olds. “The Terrible Threes” – it has a ring to it, no? While I love my children more than words can express, today was one of those days where my toddler was more than a handful and I felt myself spiraling downward near the end of the day.

Last week, I designed myself some artwork to hang on a wall in our home based on these verses from the Bible:

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)

I admit that today was a day where I felt I did not share some of these in my home, but it is these difficult days that remind me that I need to rely on God’s Spirit to parent my girls with these qualities. Tonight, I am thankful for God’s strength and His grace. I am thankful for a loving support system of family and friends that encourage me as a mother.

I am sharing this printable artwork with you with the hope that it will encourage you too!
