Mom Profile-Beth Templeton

Posted by on 27 July 2012 in MCG Moms, Mom Profiles | 1 comment

  1. How many kids do you have?

We have 7 children, ages 17-23. There is one day in the year, July 26, that we have named “Consecutive Day” in our family. On that day the ages  will be 17. 18, 19, 20, 21, 22,  and 23– pretty cool!  We have 3 biological daughters and  4 adopted children, two sibling groups from Russia. A son who was 5 when he came home, and his sister who was 10. Then two brothers who were 7 and 10.  

2. Who do you look up to most as a mommy role-model?

This may sound weird, but I look to my Daddy God first to know how to be a mommy. His tenderness and unconditional love for me has been my model. I also have an amazing mother myself who has given me great and ongoing wisdom my whole life.

3. What is the toy you’d like to lose most?

Now that our children are older I value talking to them and hearing about what is going on in their hearts and thoughts, so this one is easy– the ipod and ear phones!

4. What is one character quality you hope your kids inherit from your husband?

Stephen has a tender heart for the things of God and is always ready and willing to grow and change. That is a quality that will take you wherever you need to go in life and I want that for my children more than anything else.

5. From you?

I’m not one to give up. I’d love for all of my children to do whatever it takes to live in the dreams God has placed in their hearts and to not stop short in difficult times.

6. What is one character quality you hope your kids don’t inherit from you?

Great question! Pride that would prevent the ability to grow.

7. What have you learned about yourself through the adoption process?

I have learned that as wonderful and intentional and godly parenting is, and as amazing as the love of a whole family is, there are places deep in the core of some of our adopted children that ONLY GOD can touch. I have become convinced that believing prayer is where the real action of parenting is, and that my hope cannot be in my good parenting (as much as I value good parenting), nor in the ability of my child to succeed, but in the Powerful Love of God alone.

8. Finish this statement……Looking at the world Through Mom Colored Glasses means………..

LOVE. Love that doesn’t fail or grow weak in tough times. Love that sees the daily tasks and small joys as the great work of a lifetime with eternal purpose.
