Guest Blog Post by our Friend Amy Carney, Author of Parent on Purpose
When my kids were young, I knew that I wanted to raise them in a family who was known for their kindness, generosity, and ability to love others well.
What I didn’t know was how difficult it would be as a parent to actually live this out.
We want our kids to be kind.
We want our sons and daughters to be compassionate.
We want our offspring to be loving and empathetic toward others.
We can’t just want our children to grow up with these essential values and character traits; we must purposely show up in our home, community and world and consistently show kindness, compassion, love and empathy to others.
But, how do we prioritize serving others in this busy culture we are raising our kids in today?
