I once met a very old sage from Himalayas who told me that everyone he meets is either dwelling in yesterday or tomorrow and almost no one is bothered about Today said:
A wise man is that one that sees reality for what it is.

As much as I believe in the concept of time slips, and accidental cross-overs, astral projection, lucid dreaming, OBEs, accidental opening of doorways, somewhere I have a hard time believing that one could travel to the past in physical body > change something > return back to their world to discover that things are now changed. As fantastic and romantic as it sounds, it is pure recipe for nothing but chaos that would just mess up life as we know it. Without sounding like a cliche and telling you what we all have heard many times, the focus should be to change and impact the Present as much as we can as we know it, and future will take care of itself.
The way you described time travel presumes one worldline and is chalk full of paradoxes which make it impossible to occur. One entity would not be able to make changes to their past to alter their present. You cannot affect the past of your worldline because you've already lived it. That would suggest there are infinite copies of you across infinite worldlines of varying degrees, and to alter your past is not altering YOUR direct past, but the past of a different version of you; which is why you cannot observe the changes you'd have invoked directly EVEN if you stayed in the worldline you traveled to because it's a different set of events.

why not give a try planning different new time line keeping your family with you, just removing the mistake you made. That is a reason you can't do the jump, beacuse you dont want to leave your husband and daughter of this current line.

I have often prayed for the past. As a theist, I believe that God holds control over all things, including time itself, and is hence unbound by time.

Time is a fabricated human construct so we can understand the workings of our surroundings and environment. Time does not actually exist - it is simply a method of explanation to our experience of existence with a measurable factor in direct relation to space and gravitational distortion. To travel through space is to travel through time - it's called spacial offset divergence. You could theoretically "stop" your time by travelling faster than the speed of light. The rest of the universe would age at the normal rate while you do not age. It's all relative.

Imagine life is a cassette tape. All of it exists there on the tape. There's even two sides to the tape. But you can only experience what's on the tape by playing it and while playing it you can only experience a fraction of the tape at any given moment. Playing the tape is like time. The tape itself is existence or reality.
