when children struggle

Finding Peace When Children Struggle – Day 15: Light the World: Build The Kingdom (Year 2)

As a mother of six, I’ve had my share of times when my children struggled – either from their own choices or through no fault of their own. I know how tough it can be to watch a child have really hard times. It can be a helpless feeling. Over there years, I’ve used a visualization meditation to deal with the worry and stress when children struggle.

In this video I share my insights on being a parent of a struggling child and the meditation I’ve used to get me through. This is a visualization meditation I use to take my children to Christ in my mind.

How the Challenge Works

Step 1: Ask God each day, “What is one thing I can do to light the world and build the kingdom today?”

Step 2: ACT upon whatever He leads you to do. Go through the day EXPECTING for opportunities to arise.

Step 3: Document somewhere — in your private journal or on your favorite social media platform.

Step 4: Share! If you share publicly, please use our hash tags: #BuildTheKingdom and #LightTheWorldNow so I can cheer you on! If you’re going to be documenting privately, I recommend sharing your experience with a close friend or accountability partner. There is power in the sharing.
