10 Tips for Successful Christian Parenting

God has made each one of our children special in his or her own unique way. My role as a parent isn’t helping my child be perfect or to become more like his or her peers. My main goal as a parent is to ensure my children are everything God created them to be. So what does “success” mean to the Christian parent? For me, it’s to raise my kids in a manner that cultivates their hearts for God. The Apostle Paul told the early church to imitate him as he imitated Christ. I believe every parent is called...

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.

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.

  • The Example Of Moses
    Moses was one of the mightiest vessels of the Lord. He was indeed a man of faith, but he was also a man of fruit. However, like Elijah, he was a man subject to the passions and temptations in life like every one of us. For example, he had a problem with anger, as evidenced […]
  • Let’s Plant A Garden
    Scripture uses nature to teach us many lessons. For example, Christians are likened to farmers. Some plant, some water but it is “God who gives the increase.” What a challenge! You and I can be implements used in the Lord’s garden. And for each task there is a season. However, if we get our eyes […]
  • Faith In Fruitless Times
    We are ever being taught by God’s Spirit to walk by faith, and not by sight. Faith sees what the natural eye doesn’t. How important it is for us to grasp this key to a steady walk with Jesus. I was reminded of this again when one of the lines sung during a worship service […]
