is now available for purchase
Exposing the gift in impulsiveness
Do you know an impulsive child? One who is full of exaggerations, quick to respond, careless with words, and who acts without thinking? Do you have a child who gets out of his seat regularly when he’s not suppose to, interrupts conversations, or jumps to the front of the line uninvited? Impulsiveness is a quick, natural response for these kids. They might do all these things and more (and they generally do them rapidly). Nevertheless in the very same breath, impulsive kids can be quick to defend, remorseful for poor decisions, and able to leap over obstacles in a single bound. Somewhere between frustration and loyalty exists a gift for us to discover in impulsiveness.
The disciple Peter exhibits both the strengths and weaknesses of impulsive behavior. Impulsive Peter rushes into the water to meet Jesus, but he’s also quick to cut off a soldier’s ear. He was quick to defend, he responded without thinking, and he was passionate beyond words. His impulsiveness allowed him to experience the miracle of walking on water, while everyone else watched from inside the boat. The beauty of Peter’s impulsiveness is displayed in his life. Peter’s impulsiveness let him experience close encounters with God. He was authentic and real. He was maturing and challenging. But in the end, he was solid, and the guy others wanted to follow. Discovering the gift of impulsiveness begins in the life of Peter.
Why MommyStraat ™?
Life's roads all start at home. Life takes many turns. As Moms, we share a genuine hope that every road our children travel will lead them home. If you were to journey with me down the quaint, brick streets in Amsterdam, we would quickly notice the streets are referred to as Straat. Looking into the heart of a Mom you understand that , "(She) has no greater joy than to hear that (her) children are walking in the truth." 3 John 1:4 (NIV). MommyStraat was generated on that truth. No matter where our children travel, whether they are young or old, we, as Moms, commit their streets before God.
MommyStraats' come in many shapes and sizes. They love their families, and their children are cherished. Her kiddos make her laugh, make her smile, and make her wept like no one else can. They push every button within her MommyStraat heart. Amidst failures and success, a MommyStraat values the life of her child. She knows her children by heart, and she does not take this job lightly. She does her homework to find the most effective ways to prepare her child, but she also enjoys life and can laugh with her family. A MommyStraat has a realistic view of what works and what's not working with her kiddos. MommyStraats' love to archive their children's hilarious blunders and note-worth successes (albeit on Twitter or Facebook). At the conclusion of each day, everything is worth being a Mom to these children (because they are sleeping)!
