The Joy of Being Like a Child

Have you ever watched your kids in amazement at their desire to find joy in any situation? It doesn’t matter if it’s a visit to the doctor’s office, a trip to the furniture store, waiting in an extremely long line, or sitting through a lesson on adjectives—our kids can find a way to find joy in the moment.

The Light Within Us

What do you do when you see someone you love, or even your child, go through something that seems to affect their very vision of themselves, and life? What do you say? What if it continues and there seems to be no end in sight?

Praying for Your Kids

Every parent understands the kids’ bedtime extravaganza. Night after night, what you think has the potential to be a brief bedtime routine, quickly turns into… an extravaganza. Somehow the energy levels, excitement, questions, special bed-time requests, water needs, trips to the bathroom, and conversations all come to a peak at bedtime.

Life-Savers

Easter is quickly approaching this week, where we prepare our hearts for remembering Jesus’ sacrifice for our sins, as well as His resurrection that assures our hope in Him. As we rejoice in that hope, we also rejoice that we get to be a part of the celebration, and remember that His Good News is for all that would receive Him.

Powerful Parenting

Do you feel powerful or powerless as a parent? What about any other role where God has called you to serve? It doesn’t take long visiting social media websites, or talking with other parents at our kids’ schools and sporting events, to notice that in a lot of ways, parents today can feel easily overwhelmed—or powerless.

How Do You “Teach” Motivation?

If you’re a “Type-A personality” like myself, with an oldest child mentality to boot, you understand the dilemma I often face in my mind. Whether in the workplace, in friendships, counseling others, family matters, or raising your kids, the question arises of, “What motivates others?”

Seasons of Difficulty

I’ve come to realize that most situations are not the crises that they initially present themselves to be, and that pressure or urgency to react is in most cases not from God’s Spirit.

Trusting God Leads to a Blessed Life

How do we in the midst of undesirable circumstances maintain our trust in God? Maybe we’ve learned to persevere in challenging circumstances in our own lives, but what about challenging circumstances that involve our kids?

Encourage One Another

When you get the privilege to become a parent, you get the awesome experience to realize that not everyone is like you, not even your child! I can laugh at this, because from the very first months of having our son, we realized that we were going to need to RELY on the Holy Spirit to lead us in leading him.

Nurturing Generosity in Our Kids

One day my 7-year-old son and I had a conversation about giving. I began by reminding him of how much stuff he has been accumulating over the years, and particularly since his last birthday and Christmas. I asked him if he ever thought about giving one of his toys to someone who might be without, or even just to a friend, since his currency at the moment is toys.

Freedom to Be a Good Mother

Have you ever felt the pressure to be a “good” Mom? Have you ever struggled with feelings of guilt for mistakes you’ve made, things you should have done, time you should have spent?

The Character of God

In the midst of our emotions, when we can’t hear His loving voice, we remember what God has said in His Word and we speak it over ourselves like a Father to His child. We speak it every time a thought or emotion challenges the Words that God has spoken.

Imagination for Innovation

My husband and I thoroughly enjoy that we have a little boy who, more times than not, thinks outside of any box we could imagine. He quickly turns a game of “Rock, Paper, Scissors” into “Crab Claw, Underwater Sea Goggles, and Lava,” without blinking an eye.

Strongholds of the Mind Prohibit Growth

My 6-year-old son and I sat down together as we regularly do to practice his reading abilities. Just like times in the past, he tried to dodge having to take the time to read and do his homework… He tried to read that same book that he always reads and has all the words memorized…

Developing Empathy

As a parent, have you ever taken the time to sit and observe the interactions of your child with other children? We often spend time in their early years observing their play to make sure they don’t bite anyone or scale a bookcase, and also to help them learn how to “give Johnny a turn” and say “please” for that toy train they just grabbed.

Praise and Encouragement

One parenting style that has become increasingly popular in our culture, is that of praise. In fact, the concern over a child’s self-esteem has become so great, that praise is quickly becoming the child development focus and primary discipline method.

Does it Bear Good Fruit?

While many Christians choose to send their children to a Christian school so that they can be protected from temptations and be among people that do not contest their own beliefs, we have learned that even this is not realistic or always edifying.

‘Tis the Season

What is it that you enjoy most about the season of Christmas? Is it all the beautiful decorations, the generosity, the relaxation time, gathering with the ones you love and breaking bread together, or the cheerful music bringing joy to your spirit?

Commissioned to Train

Sometimes training only seems applicable in one of two situations: you have a situation coming that you need to prepare for, or you have a current situation that you need to get through or overcome. Many of us can look at our children and know that we need to prepare them for their future of one day being a responsible, mature adult that is submitted to the Lordship of Christ.

True Leaders are Led

We are beginning to realize and appreciate that our kids are different than ourselves, and have their own unique destinies using all the wonderful treasures God has put inside of them. We are watching in awe and wonder as we see them blossom and grow into their unique personalities, and begin to dream with God about what their futures and destinies for the Kingdom of God hold.

Finding Peace in Chaos

Sometimes I start to think that my peace depends on stillness—the absence of noise, distractions, and interruptions to my plans—and everything going the way I think it should go. When this picture of peace isn’t met, I can quickly set myself to the task of putting the pieces back in my order, as the future may be threatened—at least in my vision—if I don’t act quickly.

Purposing to Love Your Kids for Who God Created Them to Be

What if we started from the very beginning, from the very first powerful words spoken to and over a child, training their body, soul, and spirit which way to go and believe? What if we simply started today to purpose loving our kids—and all those around us—with the truth of who they were created to be?

Rooted & Living in Love

As a parent, my hope and my prayer for our son is probably no different than any other Christian parent. It is that he continues to grow in knowing and loving God; that he knows it is his God that protects and strengthens him; and that he understands God’s ways and His Word and that he clings to them for the rest of his life.

Teaching Your Children the Power of Apology

I have seen the resulting fruit and have been convicted about God’s instruction regarding forgiveness in my own life. He loves us so much and wants us healed and whole. As a result, my husband and I have sought to not only teach our child how to forgive others, but we’ve also sought to demonstrate how to apologize to our child.

Building Character that Builds Behaviors

Have you tried every trick in the books upon books that are available to parents today? Have you exhausted all the advice of parental experts, well-meaning friends and relatives, and school staff? What am I talking about? BEHAVIOR.

Teaching Your Children to Hear the Voice of God

I began practicing with my just turned 3-year-old how to hear Jesus—by sharing our hearts with Him, asking what He thought in return, and asking Him to spend time with us in whatever way He liked. I love the memory of those days as my son, Jesus, and I played games like pretending to be jellyfish, or popping imaginary bubbles, or even going through fields in our hearts picking flowers and things from the garden. Jesus would share some very intimate and heart felt things with us, even while we pretended to roast marshmallows with Him on the moon.

Gratitude: The Way to Heal Any Attitude

Taking out of the Heart vs. Putting in the Heart: this is the question I often come to at my wit’s end with my little one’s attitude, and quite honestly, my own attitude. When I’ve coped with an attitude long enough, and it is looking at me square in the face—I just want to Do Something about it! So what do I do?

Prevention vs. Cure

My son said to me this morning, “Mom, adults don’t need God’s help as much as kids do, because they already know what to do.” After thinking about that for a moment—that common, natural misperception of what it means to be grown up, I replied, “Hmm. Actually, the more responsibility I have as I grow up, the more I need God to help me and shape me.” As it turns out, those led by the most knowledge don’t always win.

Teaching Our Brains to Partner with How We Perceive Reward Part 2

I love praise and worship! Whether in the midst of community or in the privacy of my own car, there’s nothing like pouring your heart out to God and reminding yourself of His goodness, why you love Him, and how much He loves you. However, I have had those moments when I’m worshipping from the depths of my heart and I hear inside myself, “Do you really mean that? Do you really understand the words you are singing, and do you really believe them?”

Teaching Our Brains to Partner with How We Perceive Reward: Part 1

I’ve been guilty of losing faith in the effectiveness of God’s Word. I didn’t realize it—I had been looking for solutions in many good ways and people, and focused more on problem solving and acting, rather than trusting God to act as I agreed with His Word. When I sought Him one day for our son, as I had many times before, and said, “I know You have the solution for this, and I know that you’ve already made it available, just help me to see it,”
