5 Goals For Intentional Parenting

As each new year approaches, I begin to think about what I want to do differently and ask God how I can be more effective and intentional in different areas of my life.  One of the areas I have been praying about is how to be more intentional with my kids.  As a mom, one of the most important assignments I have is to raise my children to know, love, and follow the Lord.
