He who did not spare His own Son,
but gave Him up for us all,
how will He not also with Him
graciously give us all things? Romans 8:32 (ESV).
This week’s verse for the Hearts of The Home Challenge comes from Romans chapter 8, verse 32. Read it, write it down, and place it in your car, on your desk, sticky note it to your kitchen window or bathroom mirror!
What does this verse mean to you? As a woman and a mother, what thoughts does this verse invoke? Does it remind you that God spared nothing at your expense?
Moms know full well what grace is. Grace is embracing your child, terrible two’s, and three’s (and eight’s for that matter) and loving them for who they are. We know that no amount of tantrums, screaming, and messes they make will ever cause us to love them any less. We may be frustrated, tired, and irritable, but grace is freely granted to our precious babes. That is how God love us. Before He spoke each one of us into existence, He knew what decisions we would make, and the grief we would cause Him. Yet He sacrificed His only Son so we can know Him. Just as we have a never ending love for our children, so does God for us.

What a great blog! Glad to "meet" you through Bloggy Moms.
I am so glad to have come across this blog…and your book sounds like it will be a great inspirational to many.
Well I am going to be completely honest here. When I read your blurb about you I got nervous and thought oh is this going to be a Churchy McChurch blog (sorry didn't mean to judge) and then it hit me. I have been struggling with my faith for some time now and then I happened upon your blog to me means something. I need all the help I can get. I feel lately I am the worst mom always yelling, expecting so much from them when its me who isn't happy. I am a Catholic but not practicing. I just don't know where to begin with God. I'm not expecting to get all my answers from you but just like not judging a book by its cover (I'm an avid reader) I will not judge. God has a way of working his magic and I think that is why I found you!
