Day 7: Patience
Chapter Title: Active Restraint
Prayer Focus: School
Servant leadership has become a common phrase in society today, but for kids who are used to being placed on a pedestal and having their needs taken care of before all else, this concept can be a foreign one. The best place to practice being second is within a church and community group.
This small cross-section of God’s people can be just the place kids need to learn how to exhibit patience, celebrate others, and trust in God’s plan.
Mentor Mom Moment: Best-selling author, Tricia Goyer, shares her wisdom in an excerpt we call “Always a Parent” – The important thing to always keep in mind when parenting is that even when you don’t know what to do, you know whom you can turn to; our goal should be to install that same confidence in our children.

Make it Practical: One of the best encouragements I can give to parents wanting their kids to volunteer more is to Serve Where You Are: don’t wait for the “right” opportunity, just give the best of what you have wherever you are and be willing to do whatever is asked of you.
