Why Family Ministry?
By Mandy Steele

I can honestly say 2013-2014 has been the most difficult for me as a parent. When I was a young parent of small children, I longed for the say when I could sit in quiet with a book, shop for groceries without corralling kids, and eat a candy bar without having to hide in a closet. Now, I spend that free time running them to extracurricular activities, helping solve social dilemmas, and worrying about their futures. Having two teens and a “tween” is not the glorious freedom I envisioned. I would give anything to time travel, back to when I was rocking babies and changing dirty diapers.
