Kelly Rowland on Navigating Parenthood with Faith, Grace, and Love
She explained how important it was for her to be the best parent she could be for her sons.
“I want to really be a part of bringing some really amazing young men forth into the world. That was my only prayer,” said the songstress.
“I don’t know why I’m emotional, but my only prayer was to have really great young Black men in this world who were sure of themselves and didn’t have to be told who they were,” she said.
Rowland, a mother of two sons (Noah, 2, and Titan, 8), shares her motherhood journey with husband Tim Weatherspoon. She places great importance on nurturing and cherishing children and their passions.
Rowland emphasized immersing in children’s passions and joys for effective nurturing and understanding of their happiness.
She explained, “I’ll sit out here and watch him do basketball or do whatever it is that he loves so much because I want him to know that I see it. It’s wonderful. It’s worth celebrating. You’re worth celebrating. Your try is worth celebrating. I love all that is you.”
Her faith influences her parenting. Rowland comforted her son Titian by guiding him to visualize “Footprints in the Sand” by Mary Stevenson during a moment of distress.
Titan affirmed envisioning his footprints, God’s, the expansive sky, and the ocean’s blue in his mind’s eye.
The singer then explained to Titan, “That’s God next to you at all times. That’s how close he is.”
“You saw how big the ocean was? How big the sky was?’ I was like, ‘That’s God. He’s always next to us,’” Rowland added.
