they are listening

Colin hit his sister in the face with a football. So he was sent to his room for time out while I dealt with his crying sister.

Standing outside his room, I heard his talking and sobbing:

“Help me. Please help me. I hit my sister with a football and I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry. Please help me.”

I went in to the room and asked, “Colin, who are you talking to?”


“You were praying?”

“I was so sad about how I do bad things. I do so many bad things, Mom. I have so much sin.  I need God to help me.”


They’re listening. They really are listening.

I hope that encourages you, Moms. I hope it inspires you to keep teaching these little ones the truth!
