Media and Shepherding our Children
Great podcast here for parents or grandparents who spend lots of time with their grandchildren. We had better get serious about getting involved with our children's media choices . . . today! Click Here
A friend of mind recently asked me how she could more effectively teach her children who God is, while reinforcing the importance of really knowing Him. A more important question could hardly be asked! So, here's my response to her, which I pray will prove useful to others raising and teaching children:
When to Have Kids?
A Gallup Poll found that most Americans think women should start having children by age 25. Seems reasonable to me, if not a bit late! But then again I'm considered "far right" and far too religiously conservative for "most Americans."
Do Intact Families Really Matter?
According to a recent Family Research Council report, 45% of children ages 15-17 in America have been raised in intact families (a Dad and Mom in the home). That's a surprising statistic, and if accurate is higher than I would expect!
The 4 S's of Purity
"The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body" (1 Corinthians 6:13).
March Madness? More Like Year-Round!
The best blog posts and sermon illustrations always come from real life. At least that's true in my opinion. This is why I do not post to this blog multiple times a week, and sometimes I go silent for a few weeks at a time. My life is not always riveting (as difficult as that may be for some of you to believe).
Parenting Tween the Times
I have a 12 year old daughter who seemingly became a woman (physically) overnight. God has blessed her with amazing beauty (after all, she looks like a female version of me). OK, so that was my sick attempt at humor! But seriously, now that young womanhood is present in my home, "who is sufficient for these things"?
Parenting through a Tantrum
This just in from the parenting "experts" on NBC's Today Show: The way to solve child tantrums is to ignore them!
Nate, Nick and the Truth
Last week the nation was shocked and a bit amused to discover a boy that sunk a promotional hockey shot (he squeezed the puck through a 3 inch slit) was not the boy who actually was drawn for the chance.
Who Grades Parents?
The segment on NBC's Today show this morning had me flabbergasted. Watch it here:
