When your kids challenge you.

Whenever my kids really challenge me, i think of the Mother St. Augustine. St. Monica as the Catholics call her and i am encouraged. Her story does not allow me to give up on my children, no matter what. St. Augustine became the giant he is and greatly contributed to great church doctrines like the Trinity, God in three persons, because his mother refused to give up on him. she sought God with tears and the priest even chased her away because of her endless prayer requests but see what she birthed for us St. Augustine, literally snatching him from hell.
