1. Rachel, great encouragement today! I’m not there yet, but I think you connect so well to a moment many women are definitely dealing with. Visiting today from Suzie Eller’s #livefreeThursday.

  2. Rachel this is beautiful and such encouragement. This is something I worry about as a new stepmom of two boys and a girl. I never planned on having children in my life, and now I find myself worrying about who and how they grow up to be. Thank you for your tips and for sharing this story.

      I am positive God gave you step children to raise because he knows they are in good, safe, and godly hands with you. Enjoy the journey.

  3. Rachel, this is such a valuable post. Such a great story you tell, and such wisdom in your main points and illustrations. I can so relate because we dropped my son off at college 2 months ago! We’re going to visit him day after tomorrow. (I live in Turkey, but we actually relocated to America for 9 months to be just 2 hours away his first year.)

      I can understand your decision to relocate. How wonderful that you could. I hope you had a great visit with your son last week.

  4. This post reminded me of the times I left my two at college. They both went to out of state schools. They weren’t across the ocean but it sure felt like it! Like you, I prayed a lot and constantly leaned on what was true. They both continue to live out of state but they are doing well so that makes me feel good.

  5. I love this. Brought back many memories. You gave great advice and important reminders. When we’ve done our jobs we’ve done it for this very moment. Thanks so much for linking up with Faith ‘n Friends Blog Hop! Blessings to you!

      I’m sure you’ll find yourself well equipped and prepared when the day arrives. Stay strong.

  6. Rachel, I think you were more prepared than you give yourself credit for. Years of investing and praying and believing the best more than made up for the little that didn’t get done. Thank you, Rachel, for sharing your heart at #IntentionalTuesday on Intentionally Pursuing. : )
