The most important thing our kids need in order to have self-worth in life is a relationship with God Almighty.
As parents, one way we can help develop that relationship is by telling them stories from the Bible.
There are no perfect parents, but there are strong ones. We become the parents God has called us to be by using His Word as our guide. Continue reading…
Whether it’s for a bowl of cherrios or for a job interview, it’s important that we teach our children the value and the power of saying, “Thank you.” Continue reading…
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
There are so many responsibilities we have as parents and before we turn around our schedule can be packed with “responsibilities.”
What we have to learn is the difference between what is an activity and what is a responsibility. Parents are responsible to teach and train their children as they grow into adulthood – and even beyond. Here is a practical tip to being a biblical parent…
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10-11 NIV)
As parents, we can help our children answer the question, “Why am I here?” by helping them to discover their gifts and talents.
If you have five children living under your roof, then you’ve got five completely different individuals. Their personalities, likes, dislikes, attitudes, responses to things, as well as their gifts and talents are all different.
As a parent, you know that your child seems to change every day. By the time you feel comfortable with one phase it seems like your child is on to a completely new one! It can feel like you’re never doing things right.
“Never accept the enemy’s thoughts and feelings of inadequacy. You are divinely appointed by God to parent your children.”
Parenting is a great privilege. It can be the most rewarding and challenging job you will ever have. The important thing to realize is that you don’t become a parent because you are the most qualified. From the moment that little bundle of joy arrives, most people have questions and self-doubts regarding their parenting skills. Never accept the enemy’s thoughts and feelings of inadequacy. You are divinely appointed by God to parent your children. He will equip you and give you the grace you need to be a great parent. Continue reading…
