I know it’s mothers’ day and this should be a tribute to all moms. It’s not.
I want to honor my husband. Weird, right? Well, not really. I often hear people tell me I’m a good mom, that I’m raising my kids well, that I should take some credit. I don’t disagree, but I really believe it’s because I’m part of a great team and I have an awesome leader.
Of course King is flawed and makes mistakes, but he leads with such great faith and great humility. He loves the Lord and he does not assume that he knows everything. He listens and is willing to learn. He admits when he is wrong and tries to do better. He is patient, kind, joyful, loving, faithful, and forgiving. Sometimes he’s all jokes, and sometimes annoyingly so haha, but he gets serious when it counts. Constantly he speaks life, encouragement, and wisdom to me. He teaches me about God, about the church, about character, about relationships, about generosity, about family, about love, about many many things. But even when he does not speak, he teaches me. He teaches me by example. He leads us by example.
Many say that behind a successful man is a woman. I say in front of a successful married woman and mother is a good man. In front of me is my man. I am a good mom because of the grace of God and because of King’s leadership.
