Raising a large family on a tight budget isn’t always easy. Whenever a child asks for money, I mentally multiply the amount by the number of kids that are with me at the time, since realistically that’s the amount I would have to dole out.
I say no an awful lot.
My heart wants to say yes, but my reality demands another answer. Sometimes it slips out almost without thinking.
I worry that this is how my kids will remember me: the mom who always said no.
I’m thankful for a Heavenly Father who holds the power of yes—although sometimes He may answer otherwise, either for my own good or because His timing and mine aren’t the same.
“If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? ~Matthew 7:11”
How do you find creative ways to say yes to your kids that don’t cost you more dollars and cents?
