ALL IN

This Mother’s Day tribute is from Focus on the Family’s, Roy Baldwin.

I wrote a recent blog post about my mother for Dad Matters entitled, “My Mom: Through the Highs and the Barf…” In it I describe my mother as one who was always been “all in” in my life.  My mother and father sacrificed much in raising my younger brother and I.  My parents have modeled for me the importance of having an intimate relationship with Christ.  They have shown me that putting others first is a primary calling not a secondary thought.  We were far from a perfect family…we have had our struggles and trials but in the midst of the journey my parents kept pointing to Christ.

As I raise my own family…I look back on those years and am grateful for a mother who was “all in” as a mom but more importantly as a Christ follower.
