"The exhausting cycle of packed days, stressed-out kids, and emotional meltdowns was not going to change until rest became a central factor in our lives. I needed to pivot, to transform the way I approached parenting.
My realization came one day as I was reading Matthew 11:28: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" (NIV).
Jesus' words struck a chord deep within me. His invitation to find rest in Him was a reminder that in the midst of my family's hectic life, He is our source of calm and renewal. But even more so, it was a wake-up call for me to pursue slow, unhurried living within our family."
