When my husband and I meant we talked a lot about leaving a legacy for our kids. We both didn’t grow in a Christian household and we wanted to change that. After growing in God and learning God’s plan for family, we felt we needed to lead by example. So we thought of different things that would help us and our children grow in God.
3 tips to leaving a Godly example for the next generation:
Be an example
Kids watch everything you are doing, even without you knowing. How you handle anger, how to have a Godly marriage, cleaning cooking, running a business, etc. They watch everything and home is where they learn and how to handle different situations.
Leave Small reminders
I LOVE to have cute christian decor around my house. A few things in my kids room, the bathroom, the front door and the back. EVERYWHERE. I get excited about things like that and in turn my kids get excited as well.
Here’s an example, this picture says so much to me. The mantle above my fireplace is chaos, it needs cleaning, organizing and right now, in the midst of the holiday season, I don’t have the strength to do it.
In the midst of the chao, we’re still blessed. My husband and I got Married in the year of 2006 and during that time it was a lot of ups and downs in our life but God is Faithful even from the beginning and still now.

Talk about God every chance you get.
Lastly, 3 tips to leaving a Godly legacy for the next generation, is talking about God every chance you get. I believe having those frames and Christian decor is a great conversation piece.
My daughter is a Teenager that has a attitude of a Teenager and reminding her of God’s love and her behavior chances. I talk about God’s love and point stuff out with the decor to make it real for her and all my children.
