I am a busy mom with four children age 9 months up to 10 years old. My husband works nights, and life is very busy! I try to raise my kids to love God and to respect themselves and to respect life. We live out in the country and have an acre of land, and I try to teach them how to take care of the land, by not hurting the wildlife and by using sustainable methods to grow our flowers and vegetables. We don't have much money so I can't do everything I'd like, but we recycle, and do not waste our resources. I also try to teach them to have a spiritual awareness, by not getting involved in negative behaviors or hurting others. I hope they can bring many good things to our suffering world!
