Greatest Parenting Struggles: Introduction.

Parenting //

Recently I posed a question to all of my Facebook Friends. The question was, “What is your greatest struggle in parenting your kids.” This is the first in a series where I seek to address some of the replies. If you were one of the people that replied thanks for your reply and I hope that this helps. Also, don’t worry, everything will be done anonymously so no one will know exactly who I’m talking about. I do this as some sent me private messages because they did not want to post their reply publicly.

As we prepare to get into this new series let me start by saying that I am no parenting expert. Quite frankly I think that anyone that claims to be is a fool. I have two kids, a 5 year old daughter and a 12 year old son. Even though these kids have the same parents and live in the same house they are vastly different. Still there are some basic principles that work for both of them. No, I am NOT an parenting expert. I am a parent. I am a kid’s pastor. I am a Christian. The thoughts that I share in this series will come from my own experience as a parent, pastor and follower of Jesus.

What is YOUR greatest struggle in parenting your kids?

About the Author

My name is Matt Norman and I am the Children’s Pastor at The Rock in Winter Haven, FL. I am married to my high school sweet heart Kim and have two kids; Trey, 11 and Jayden, 4. I love being in ministry to children and their parents, as well as to other adults. I love sharing the gospel and other Biblical truths. I love worshiping and leading worship.  I love seeing kids grow spiritually. I love equipping God’s people for works of good service. Basically, I love ministry. In addition to ministry I have spent 17 years working in a local hospital, 16 of them in the emergency room. Trust me this experience comes in handy in children’s ministry. God is working in my life. I don’t yet know what he has planned, but I know that it is going to be cool. I’m watching and praying and doing what I can to make myself ready for whatever it is that God is working out in my life and my ministry. I love teaching kids and adults alike. If you are looking for a camp speaker, or a special speaker for your training event then use the email link at the top of the page to contact me. I would love to come along side you to have a greater impact on kids and their families for The Kingdom.
