A Mother’s Wisdom on Raising Children

There are times I feel like my grandmother’s voice is fading in my memory. She has only been gone for five years, but I am afraid if I don’t hold on tightly I will forget completely. I often long to sit in her room with the smell of a burning fire, the music of her canary filling the air, and listening to her tell a story.

I am at a time in my life I long to ask her questions. I want her advice on how to be a Godly wife. Although I am not a mother yet, I know one day that day will come, and I want to ask her about raising children. I do know, whatever her answers would have been, my grandmother, Ruth Bell Graham, always had a sense of humor with her bits of wisdom.

I consider myself lucky daughter, that she passed her sense of humor and wisdom down to my mother. And I pray one day I will pass their sense of humor and wisdom down to my children.

Instead of sitting next to her bed and asking her questions, I am able to watch the wonderful memories on video. In the memory of Mother’s Day, I wanted to share with you an interview with my grandmother about raising children.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful moms.
