25 Encouraging Scripture Verses for Parents of Preschoolers

Wow, I have a whole new appreciation for the work that preschool parents do each and every day!  I have spent the last week working with six precious preschoolers, including my own sweet granddaughter, at my church’s VBS (Vacation Bible School).  With ages that range from a year and a half to four years old, and even with a team of five ladies, I’m so exhausted at the end of the morning I can barely stand!  I know I once raised preschoolers, but I believe there is good reason I had my children young…I just don’t have the energy like I did way back when!  So I salute you wonderful Moms and Dads of preschoolers!  May you continue to stay focused on God, let Him give you the strength and endurance to teach those little ones in the “way they should go” (and I don’t just mean potty-training 🙂
