Dare To Be Different: A Lesson In Confidence

The other day my oldest daughter, Areyna, came home from school with a pretty long face. I could tell that something was wrong but I couldn’t quite put my finger on what area of her life was being affected simply by looking at her body language. I quickly began running through the list of questions […]

Help keep your teenager guarded from witchcraft

Teenagers and Witchcraft

Recently, my daughter came home and asked me about Voodoo and Ouija boards. She is 14, and goes to public middle school. There was a new “game” that had come out called “Charlie Charlie” and she wanted to know if it was real or not. It took everything in me to not drop my jaw. […]

Asking for Help

My daughter is passionately independent. Ever since she was a toddler she has wanted to “do it herself.” Sometimes this is a good trait. It allows her to figure out ways to complete complex tasks and have a great sense of accomplishment when she does. Sometimes, this trait is a curse. She finds it very […]

Why I Sometimes Ignore My Son's Questions

Why I Sometimes Ignore My Son’s Questions

My son is 4 and is very verbal. At his 3-year-old well check-up, his decades-in-the-business doctor told me that he’d never had a child that age who talks that much. Little did he know then. My ears get tired some days. Anyway, I digress… So take a normal 4-year-old and then add like 10 extra doses of a fondness for […]

As parents, we pray for our kids. We need to teach our kids to pray - and nothing better than praying for our dads!

10 Verses for Kids to Pray Over Their Dads

As parents, we pray for our children. We seek the Lord for His protection, His guidance, and most importantly, for their salvation. It is then our job to show our children faith. As they see us praying, they learn to pray for others. A great method for teaching our children to pray is to pray […]

Add a little theology to your kids' summer reading and help them understand God better!

Add a Little Theology to Your Child’s Summer Reading

In Koine Greek, the language of the New Testament, the word “Theos” means “God” and “ology” means “the study of.” Theology, then, just means “the study of God.” We study God by reading the Bible, which is all about Him. We also study Him by committing to understand good theology and doctrine, making certain that our […]

Talking about the Commandments

I am a first born child, a rule-follower. I have always been the type of person who wants to be very clear on what the rules are so that I can follow them well. When people use “house rules” in a board or card game it drives me crazy. My son is a lot like […]

Parenting Without Fear at Kids in the Word

Parenting Without Fear

My son is a gift from God, given to us after 8 years of trying, waiting, losing, crying, praying, hoping, and waiting some more. When I finally became pregnant, it was only after repeated loss. As a result, my pregnancy with him was distinguished from the ones before him with one significant marker: fear. For […]

Remember the hard stuff...

Remember The Hard Stuff To Give Hope For The Future Stuff

Isn’t it funny how certain smells and tastes, and even songs, can take us back to a certain time in our lives? For my husband it is the scent of Bath ‘n Body Works “Sweet Pea” lotion that brings him back to our wedding day and honeymoon. Certain songs bring me back to soccer field […]
