To the parents who are exhausted, divorced, who have sinned, who have not chosen life, who have committed adultery, who have lost tempers, who have made decisions in which you cannot take back.
The parents who have been through abuse, and endured battles of mental health and addiction.
To the parents who are succeeding, happily married, who have chosen life, who have remained faithful, who are in great health and free of any abuse or addiction, who are living each day choosing God’s will for both themselves and their families.
We call on all of the above. We want and need all of the above.
We welcome every single one of you with open arms as that is what has been done for us.
Here at The Real Deal of Parenting we celebrate motherhood, fatherhood, pregnancy, life, restoration, mercy, grace, and forgiveness.
We celebrate the imperfect who are fervently aiming to do better and be better every day.
We celebrate and welcome YOU.
While we will continue to passionately share our beliefs, we want to remind you that here at TRDOP we have fallen flat on our faces many times, we’ve made more mistakes than we can keep track of, and yet we feel abundantly blessed knowing we’ve been given (and accepted) God’s mercy – which has made all the difference.
Thank you for boldly sharing in our imperfect community of mothers and fathers who all chase the goal of doing the best we can with the hand we’ve been meticulously dealt or chosen.
Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your journey as we share The Real Deal of Parenting.
