Six Inspirational Quotes

Raising children can be draining. Besides praying scripture and reading books, I so appreciate quotes about parenting (and life in general) from wiser people, because they give me a quick battery recharge during my mundane tasks of running a family.

I thought I would share a few of my favorite words of wisdom:

1. Good Kids

“Don’t let yourself become so concerned with raising a good kid that you forget you already have one.”

— Glennon Melton-Doyle, Momastery

2. Grounded Children

If you want children to keep their feet on the ground, put some responsibility on their shoulders.”

— Abigail Van Buren

3. Big Stuff

“Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what. If you don’t listen eagerly to the little stuff when they are little, they won’t tell you the big stuff when they are big because, to them, all of it has always been big stuff.”

— Catherine M. Wallace

4. A Thousand Times Brighter

“So even when it might seem easy to throw in the towel, just hang on. Things are a thousand times brighter on the other side and your children will be better for it.”

— a mother

5. Relish The Charms

“You will never have this day with your children again. Tomorrow, they’ll be a little older than they were today. This day is a gift, breathe and notice. Smell and touch them; study their faces and little feet and pay attention. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today, it will be over before you know it.”

— Jen Hatmaker

6. The Things You Have

“Never let the things you want make you forget the things you have.”

— unknown

We all need to be reminded that life is so much bigger than “us” in the moment. But know that you know- you are not alone!
