I love the country that we live in. I love the principles that the Founding Fathers set forth: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I love that there have been men and women willing to fight for those freedoms, whether physically or with other means.

But, I love Jesus more. Any freedom that we experience in the United States, is ultimately, thanks to Him.

Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever.

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed….”

John 8:34-36

May your Fourth of July be filled with true freedom.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
