Five Minute Fridays

Today is my first time joining Five minute Friday. Kate Motaung (encourages writers to write for five minutes on a specific topic. Today the word is Dream, so hear goes.....

I dream of a day when we can be more authentic with each other especially in the Christian community.

I dream of a day when moms can honestly say they are overwhelmed by the pressures that come with being a wife and mother.

I dream of the day when we can honestly compliment another woman without being jealous.

I dream of a day when we can all "BE REAL."

Secret Life of Christian Women: Overwhelmed by ADD/ADHD Child

google images
As I dealt with my son’s epic temper tantrum over buckling his seat belt, I asked myself, “why me? Why did you give me such a difficult child?” I must admit that day I was tired of life and exhausted but it was how I felt in that moment.  

If you are reading this blog, more than likely you are struggling through the challenges we face while raising ADD/ADHD kids. There are no definite answers and solutions to ADHD. Having no definite solutions makes the disease difficult to comprehend, especially in the Christian community where ADHD is considered taboo. This blog is to provide you with encouragement through scripture.  There are five scriptures I lean on each week to make it through the day (the name in red is my son’s). I look forward to connecting through our link ups this week.

1.    I praise you because Elijah is fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalms 139: 14
2.     He who began a good work in Elijah will be faithful to complete it.
     Phil 1: 6
3.     “Before I formed Elijah in the womb I knew him, and before Elijah was born I consecrated him; I appointed him a prophet to the nations.”  
    Jer. 1:5
4.     So God created Elijah in his own image, in the image of God he created Elijah. Gen 1: 27
5.     And I will make Elijah a great nation, and I will bless him and make his name great, so that he will be a blessing. Genesis 12:2

Please feel free to share your stories and ways you cope.

There are no definite answers and solutions to ADD/ADHD but together we can support each other through the dark allies and down the lonely roads.
