What helped me most during those early years was a statement I remembered from childhood, "How can you say you love your children if you don't care about their souls?" It's a motivating factor to make sure one's children have every opportunity possible to learn about God.
And, though we may still occasionally dread alarm clock, in time one's faith becomes their own. Then, there's no place we'd rather be than in God's house.
Neither have I gone back from commandment of his lips; I have esteemed words of his mouth more than my necessary food. Job 23:12
