Nurturing Your Marriage with an Instant Family

 

As a remarried, newlywed couple, your biggest challenge will be finding the time to nurture your marriage because most of the time you also have an instant family to take care of.

When you come back from the honeymoon, if you even get one, you immediately step into the role of mom and dad—packing lunches, dropping off kids, picking up kids, helping kids with homework, etc. There’s no time for you and your spouse to grow in your relationship first. You both have to hit the ground running.

Why is Family Important?

Depending on the day you may be thanking God for your family or asking Him why He put you in the family He did.

Whether it feels like it or not, it’s a blessing to be part of a family. We grow and learn by being around others. Whether or not you’re married, God desires all of us to be part of His family.

Be encouraged as you watch this crucial reminder from Joe about why family is important.

WATCH THIS:

TAKE AWAY

God created the first family after he told Adam that it was not good that he was alone. You’ve got to be around other people to grow up.

Friday Funnies: Never Enough Bathrooms in the House

As a father of six children—five of those being girls—Joe learned early how to find “creative” solutions to keep the peace. There’s no greater example of this than in how he “solved” the bathroom fights.

Beyond the creative solutions, Joe also shares a biblical truth that is the key to understanding how to successfully deal with family issues.

Building Healthy Blended Families

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth” (Genesis 1:27-28 KJV).

God’s plan for humanity is that a man and a woman come together as husband and wife, raise godly seed, and build a strong family and a successful life. The problem is that we have an enemy whose goal is to kill, steal, and destroy (John 10:10).

At the top of his list of things to destroy are marriages and families.  Blended families can feel an extra strain because of the unique circumstances they may be facing with ex-spouses, children,etc. As a result, one of the biggest challenges of divorce or remarriage is building a healthy “blended family.”

There is No “Wisdom Gene”

 

“And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man” (Luke 2:52 KJV).

I want my kids to grow in wisdom. Why?

Because wise kids live long, they have the ability to become wealthy, and they’re more apt to be promoted to leadership positions and have a broader scope of influence. And that means they can do a lot of good for a lot of people. I want my kids to be godly influences everywhere they go and live happy, successful lives.
