Diligent Parenting

As parents it is so important that we be diligent in the way we treat, pray for, and raise our children. In this article I wanted to share some tips on how to diligently parent our children, including our teens. These tips I have learned while ministering to teens and reading about raising teens. 1. Allow choices whenever possible It is so easy for us as parents to make decisions for our children, especially in the heat of the moment. However, the only way children are going to learn to make good choices is by making choices. If good...

Struggling

As a parent the biggest concern I deal with (and pray about) on a daily basis is my children’s relationship with God as they grow up. The idea that our kids might doubt, or turn away from God completely, isn’t something that’s easy to think about. But it’s important.  At some point our children are going to have to own their relationship with God. They will need to figure it out for themselves; they won’t be able to rely on our faith as their parents. I have heard it said many times by many pastors and teachers: “God is a father,...

Youth Group?

Dear Parents, Thank you for all you do every day to invest in the life of your teenager. I am sure at times you probably feel like an Uber driver (always picking them up and dropping them off somewhere), coach (helping them perfect their sport), tutor (working on homework with them), and guidance counselor (preparing them for the future) all wrapped in one. That is why with the insane busyness in the life of a teen and of a teen parent, it is so easy to let Youth Group attendance slip. It can be all too tempting to think,...

Victory

Do you know that right now regardless of what you are battling with, you have victory in Christ? 1 Corinthians 15:57 tells us: “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” In Christ our victory is sure, just as sure as Christ’s death and His resurrection. In fact, it is through His death and resurrection that we have the power to live in victory, and in that victory we should live in a constant state of praise to our victorious Lord and Savior. Another great verse to remember as we are in the...

  • Cleansing … It’s An Inside Job
    It is significant to note that in the days of Hezekiah’s reformation (2 Chron 29:1-5), they began the cleansing of the house of the Lord in the inner part. Before there can be any pure work of God accomplished, our inner man must be cleansed. Paul writes about cleansing ourselves “from all filthiness of the […]
  • Upright Living
    “Shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.” The Hebrew root of the English word “upright” means straight, even, or right. Webster’s Dictionary defines upright as a strict adherence to moral principles. As followers of Jesus we, above all people, are to be honest and scrupulous in all of our ways. The psalmist […]
  • Are you Listening?
    As soon as He was alone, His followers, along with the twelve, began asking Him about the parables. And He was saying to them, “To you has been given the mystery of the kingdom of God, but those who are outside get everything in parables, so that while seeing, they may see and not perceive, […]
  • Access To God
    To have access to God means that you and I have the ability to communicate or approach the Lord at will. Jesus Christ has made God the Father accessible. Each and every child of God is now able to have personal fellowship with the Lord. We can bring all of our prayers and needs to […]
