As a Level 1 writer, you might not be aware of the free writing lessons available on the FaithWriters forums. This week’s lesson is on writing devotionals, and next week will cover writing on topic for the weekly challenge. Look for it at http://www.faithwriters.com/Boards/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=67, or if you’re on Facebook, you can “like” Faithwriters Writing Lessons. I’d love to have your input into the conversation there!

This is beautifully written. The only suggestion I'd make is that you might want to include a few more specific details--a narrative about times you've "messed up" and the way you've handled those times when talking with your children. I find that the more transparency a devotional has, the more relatable it is for your reader. This is exceptionally well-done, though, and I wouldn't expect to see you in Level One for long.
Well written. Easy to read.

Good advise. Keep writing.
One of the most profound things I read in this article was this: "My kids have watched me..." Our children watch us closer than we ever realize. They will be affected more by what we do, than anything we say.

A small red ink issue: The list of results from making easy decisions you mentioned should probably have ended with a colon, semicolon or dash, as it is not a complete sentence without what follows.

I enjoyed this piece.

Your not my mom, but I'm snatching up those advice. Very thought-provoking and well written. Thanks for the reminder & advice. Keep writing.
