Somewhere in between the snotty noses, sleepless nights and incessant diapers, Denise Lilly’s baby boy adjusted her sight. She saw the beauty of dependence. She saw growth in difficulties. She saw wisdom in obedience and courage in the face of change. She saw glimpses of glory. Before her son was born, she was being primed for an awakening. Being pregnant taught her about expecting, waiting, nourishing and sharing. Being a mom taught her even more. Parenthood recalibrated Lilly’s faith. Through her parental eyes she grasped that God, as parent, may be acting or not acting for reasons she simply couldn’t understand. Through her son’s blue eyes she soaked up the simplicity of life and faith.
