I had to really be on my toes-there was little-or-no catching of mistakes I made on the older child so that they wouldn’t be repeated with the younger one. What I was—or wasn’t—doing to love and raise my children was being done to both of them at the same time.

When I write, events happening around me often show up in my books. The same thing occurs in Paul’s writing as he explains the reality of spiritual warfare. Paul pens a letter from a prison where he’s been for two years, observing Roman soldiers daily.
