Gratitude is a product of humility.
A brief explanation:
The Hebrew word for gratitude is, “hoda’ah” which is the same as the word used for confession.
Being thankful is actually to confess dependence, or to acknowledge that someone else has the power to benefit you, to admit that your life is better because of their efforts. So let’s be thankful and not take things for granted.
“Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true wisdom” (Psalm 111:10 NLT).
Do you want to have wisdom? Then, fear God. That means respect, reverence, and honor Him. God is always right. Continue reading…
Have you noticed that troublemakers are usually not too hard to find? If there’s any kind of drama going on, they’re usually center stage.
Do you want to have great relationships? Then be a person who brings good news.
The Bible talks about how precious and blessed are the feet of him that brings good news (Isaiah 52:7).
Sometimes you can wonder if you’re doing anything right, if you’re doing everything wrong, and feel like you’re the only one who’s struggling.
It’s God’s Will for you to train up a child in the way they should go (Prov. 22:6), but He didn’t leave you on your own to figure it out.
What God’s Word Says:
- …”So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” Deut. 31:16
- If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. James 1:5
- God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. So we will not fear, even if earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea. Psalm 30:5
LAUGH ABOUT THE PERKS OF PARENTING…
THE TAKE AWAY
You’re not alone – not ever. God will help you! Also, remember that it’s important to take time to relax and laugh.
FIGHTING FOR FAMILIES
What you say over your children carries a lot of weight. Children will start to believe what they hear the most often, and if all they hear from their parents is how many mistakes they have made, they will begin to think that they can never do anything right. Continue reading…

Have you ever grilled a big, thick, juicy steak? Before you throw it on the grill, you sprinkle it with salt and pepper to season it.
There’s something about salt that brings out all of the flavor and creates a mouth-watering piece of meat that you can’t wait to sink your teeth into! Simply adding salt just makes it better!
Great relationships make life a lot more enjoyable. However, one reality check that may be hard to accept is that not everybody will like you or want a relationship with you. People will either like you and respond to you, or they won’t. That’s just life.
Did you know that your kids can help your family grow stronger, make you happy, and bring honor to your family name? God’s Word says it’s possible.
I know when I first heard this, I asked, “Do you mean MY kids? The ones who just flunked algebra? The ones who let the air out of the tires just to feel the wind on their faces? The ones who broke the window trying to throw rocks over the house? Do you mean those kids?”
Yes, those kids!
If we, as parents, fear the Lord and obey His Word, our seed (our children) will be mighty upon this planet (Psalm 112). God’s Word also tells us that our children are a reward from God, that they can bring us great joy (Psalm 127:3-5). The kind of reward they bring us depends on us teaching and training them according to the Word of God.
