"He tends his flock like a shepherd:
he gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young."

Isaiah 40 v 11

Our days are long right now and in some cases there is a sameness about them. We have found real times of joy and a reminder of the smaller things, by making sure we each have three things to be thankful for at the end of the day. We know it is a small thing, but sometimes hearing our children's lists has made our day. No, they do not always want to do it but for us it has been worth persevering for.

We are not any of us doing this alone, there are millions of parents/carers going through the same thing. We are here. If you need anything, just get in touch and we will do our best to help.

We are expecting there to be bad days, bad moments and interruptions in the routines we set but we are pressing into having grace for ourselves with that. And seeing what God has for us in those moments too.

We wanted to share with you a selection of articles and videos that other churches and organisations have produced that we've found really helpful:

Resources for Parents/Carers

A list of parenting resources, specifically for the time we find ourselves in for all parents/carers:

Christian Resources for Parents/Carers, Kids and Families

If you are wondering how to be encouraging your children’s faith at this time or indeed looking into adding to or creating habits, we and others have found these useful (again not an exhaustive list and we will add to this).

We're all in this together so do share with us any resources you find particularly helpful.

Much love.

Manny & Sinead
