  1. […] opportunity to write for (in)courage- Home for the Hearts of Women has been afforded to little ol’ me! Woot! So you can start reading this post […]

  2. This really touched me–many times we do carry around a magnifying glass with our children (and our spouses!) and it’s hard to see their good. I’m so glad my Father sees the good in me–every. time.

    Rich blessings, Rachel, as your Father’s glory is revealed in your kiddos…

  3. oh how this excites me to encourage people around me! Great story for all us mommies!!!

  4. Such wonderful encouraging words from your Random Angel. That’s what I love about the (in)courage website….the encouragement we receive from the Daily Guests and from their posts…and we in turn can be an encouragement to others. Thanks for sharing your experience! Blessings!

  5. I too LOVED the magnifying bit. Oh how we need each other for a little perspective. Thanks for knockin my socks off today. Thanking God for His random angels.

  6. Thank you! My extroverted spirited physical 4 year old boy challenges me so much. Your post is so timely! I’m trying to remember to find the JOY in each say with him- especially on the days when nothing seems good.

  7. Rachel,

    What a beautifully written “truth in love” moment for me. My magnifying glass has been extra huge having come home from the mission. Thank you for reminding me to see my kids through His eyes and Praise the Lord for Random Angels to encourage a worn out mom, huh?!

  8. We work with lots of young missionaries with lots of young children and there are days when all I do is listen to these young Mom’s speak their worries about their children behavior. Your post was a reminder that those of us whose children have left our nest should at all times be looking for ways to encourage these young Mom’s. Raising children is one of the hardest jobs we do but it also carries the greatest lesson. Their actions and reactions mirror our own. You have heard this, “the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree”. This always put me on a guilt trip and can still even though my children are adults in their 30’s. That tree was first planted outside the garden and we are all apples fallen from it. I want to be more like that Random Angel giving out Proverbs 25:11 encouragement..turning those apples into gold. Thanks for the challenge.

    • Betty, I am so thrilled to hear you were challenged. This man was so God-sent. The great thing is that he didn’t pass up the opportunity. 🙂 Thank you for commenting!

  9. Rachel,

    Too funny! My sister, with her five little stair-steps was telling how a grocery shopping trip can really force a mom to admit her shortcomings when it comes to having well-behaved children. I told her that good mothers NEVER take their children shopping!!

    Thanks for the beautiful hint — I want to be a random angel!
