Restoring Hope in the Lives of Families

Our God-given mission at Joe McGee Ministries is to restore hope in the lives of families through the knowledge of God’s Word.

We use every method and avenue we have available to us, including social media to reach people.

Here is a note we received via social media of one woman who had hope restored and recommitted her life to God —

“I saw a clip of Joe McGee on facebook…Joe’s messages on marriage and family were exactly what I needed at the exact right time. I recommitted my life to Christ. I’m more patient and understanding with my children and husband now, among lots of other things. I feel things moving toward the better for us and, although it’s by the grace of God, I have to thank Joe as well!”

How To Get More Unity

Last year, the number one topic our listeners and readers wanted help with was getting more unity in their family.

It affects families, businesses, marriages and the list continues. Unity sounds like a flowery term, but if you don’t have it, relationships can easily turn ugly.

The reason a lack of unity affects relationships is that because it causes conflict. Conflict is most often the result of unmet expectations. When everyone has a different goal or expectation that doesn’t get met, conflicts ensue.

We actually recorded a special message on this topic called, Growing Up Together.

[Ep. 562] First to Serve

 

The Bible clearly teaches that every family needs leadership. But good leadership is not telling everybody what to do.

In fact, it’s the very opposite of that attitude. It’s more about asking what I can do for you. In this episode, Joe talks about how leading your family means serving your family.

[Ep. 557] Kids First?

 

 

Be careful not to let your desire to be a good parent come at the cost of your marriage relationship.

Your children need your time, but so does your spouse. Often, this statement comes with a sense of guilt because you don’t feel like you can give everything to everyone all the time.

Firstly, you need to know that God is the only person that can meet all their needs, it’s not solely on your shoulders.

Secondly, you need to know that God gives us children to raise and then give back to Him—they are passing through your house.

Thirdly, you need to remember that you spouse is the second greatest thing God ever did for you outside of sending His Son to save you. And when you steward the health of that relationship, the strength and health of your family will follow.
