31 Days to Intentional Parenting

I am loving this series from Mommy Matter Blog.

Even though I am barely a mommy, with Asher not even being 3 months old yet. And a lot of the her tips and advice are directed to parents with "children" and not babies, I appreciate reading her Biblically inspired approach to motherhood. I am aware that these are probably the easiest days I will ever experience on this mommy ride, but I always want to prepare myself for the days ahead that will require much more effort.

One of my New Year's Resolutions is to pray over Asher daily. I want to pray specific things for him but I also love this blessing. And I like her idea to speak it over him.

Blessing for Asher
“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”
-Numbers 6:22-26
If you are a mommy, I am pretty sure you will be blessed by this series as well.

Get the book: "Power of a Praying Parent" It is AWESOME!!!!! Speaking blessings over your child in the name of Jesus is POWERFUL!!! I have really started practicing this a lot this year...and using it to combat his fear...when he is afraid of something.
