Do you ever find yourself at a stand still with your children concerning anger in either yourself or your children? I admit that I do. It is far easier to be unfair or to yell because I don't want to take the time necessary to find out what the heart of the issue is. However, the Bible teaches us something different, "he who loves his children will discipline them", "a soft answer turns away wrath", "do not provoke your children to wrath", "the heart of the wise ponders how to answer", and "the heart of the wise teaches his mouth and adds learning to his lips". I recently purchased a book that came highly recommended by many friends that will address these issues that I struggle with and am sure that many other mothers struggle with as well. The name of the book is The Heart of Anger by Lou Priolo. As I read this book I will enlighten other moms as to the wisdom that I will be learning. Motherhood is a journey that I am currently on and am excited to share the wisdom and struggles that I face on a daily basis to hopefully help other moms on this same journey.
