Patience

Mommies,

Aren’t we so thankful that Karthi Masters went through Patience Boot Camp to bring us the message yesterday? Thank you, Karthi, for being so vulnerable and honest with us.  I think it is safe to say that you blessed each of us with your wise, truthful words.  Thank you. 

Karthi has given us a list of books that we may want to check out in reference to patience with our children.  Below is a list of those resources along with the discussion questions from yesterday in case you want to meditate on them during your alone time (does that even really exist? 🙂 ) .  Enjoy ladies!
Discussion Questions

1. When do you wish for more patience?
2. What does “abiding” have to do with patience?
3. Do you struggle with finding your red dot on the “emotions” map? How important is this in how you live patiently as a mom?
4. What will you teach your child about patience this week? this Christmas?
