There are great spiritual lessons from God’s Word about the concept of a lasting legacy. For many of us, we know that if we don't intentionally pass along our beliefs and values to our children, it will be filled by our culture’s beliefs and values instead. Today we’re going to be talking with mother-daughter duo, Teresa Conlon and Kate Hughes about Family Legacies.
They both share examples of traditions and legacy inherited from their own parents which have made tremendous differences in how they have raised their own children.
“I actually inherited a legacy of prayer and I saw the power of it,” said Teresa
Teresa shares about the legacy of prayer in her family and how God challenged her when she had Kate. She recalls how easily Kate made friends, but how she was concern about her choice in friends. Teresa’s anxiety about Kate’s friends led God to convict her about judging those friends challenging her to instead pray for them. Kate also opens up about her own concerns for her children, but how God has constantly reminded her of His goodness and His faithfulness towards her and her family.
“It’s also healthy to remember that your children are in the hands of God and that He has them. When you’re able to fully surrender your children to the Lord, its huge. You can then parent from hope and love instead of fear,” said Kate
Both Teresa and Kate share about aspects of their emotional, social and spiritual legacies and how the Lord has used key building blocks in those areas to create a more wholesome person, mother and friend to their children.
