Family accountability

When setting goals, making a living, taking care of your family's needs, etc. isn't it tough sometimes keeping an eternal perspective. It often--too often--is for me. Because of this, I've announced to the kids that they have full permission to keep mommy accountable (Mom and Momma to the older kids as it's been a long time since I've been Mommy to them). They can say, "Hey, why aren't we reading the Bible and praying together anymore?," "Mom, did you pray today?," "Mom, let's not skip church today." I need that and they are benefitting from seeing me admit that I'm not perfect and need accountability.
