“One of the lies that has been promulgated is that you don’t need quantity time with your children, you need quality time.” -Mark Driscoll
We do have a lot of quality time together here in the Goodpaster household. It’s wonderful. Mike and I are taking the mission of parenthood seriously and are showing our children that they deserve the lion’s share of our time. In all honestly, though, it’s difficult. Some days I really don’t want to play another game of Chutes and Ladders or shield a tantruming toddler from another forehead gash. Sometimes I just want to stroll around Target or the Mall of America. Sometimes I just want to spend hours on the computer. And I will do these things at times, but first I check my heart. Am I honoring the Lord in my calling as a shepherd of little hearts?
