Reclaiming Our Common Ground

Reclaiming Our Common Ground article

I recently saw a television interview with a WWII veteran who was weeping over the condition of America and the changes that have been forced upon us without the consent of the American people.  Through his tears he proclaimed, “This is not the country we fought for.”  Within the same timeframe, I am told of…

A Biblical Precedent

A Biblical Precedent article

Instruction in things that are acceptable and good is needed by our children, and the Biblical precedent is that this training comes from the parent or from the home.  We are not born with such knowledge.  We are naturally selfish and demand our way, but we know little of our effect on others.  We also…

God Said It

God Said It article

In taking a fresh look at the 5th commandment, Exodus 20:12: “Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the LORD your God is giving you,” this commandment is an instruction with a promise: If you, then God will.  We have no way of measuring the consequences…

The Meek

The Meek article

This information comparing the Biblical meaning of being “meek” to the dictionary came from the television-series “The Chosen” Bible study for Season 2 Episode 3.  They did such a good job I thought it appropriate for this article.  As parents, we constantly navigate and instruct our children in their response to life and how it…

We know that if we want to arrive at a destination that is to the east, we will never get there going west. The same concept applies to parenting.  We must have a goal or destination in mind and be sure we are on the right path to get there.  In Matthew 5-7, “The Sermon…

Reclaiming That Which is Lost… article

Joel 2:25: “The LORD says, ‘I will give you back what you lost to the swarming locusts, the hopping locusts, the stripping locusts, and the cutting locusts. It was I who sent this great destroying army against you.’” The intent and purpose of this parenting article is to deliver “carats of gold” as deposits to…

If Not Me, Then Who?

If Not Me, Then Who? article

Our quest for parenting requires an intent and purpose with results in mind.  Parenting is too great a job to wing it.  Parenting requires the “supernatural” power of Christ and His wisdom in us to accomplish great things.  We must keep short accounts with God on our motives to be sure they are in line…

Easter: What Do You Believe?

Easter: What Do You Believe?

“Anything is possible if a person believes.”  Sounds like something from a Disney movie, but these are the Words of Jesus as told in the New Testament account of His ministry.  Belief is “acceptance that a statement is true or that something exists; trust, faith, or confidence in someone or something.”  We “can” have faith…

Who’s The Boss?

Who's the Boss article

We seem to struggle in our contemporary understanding as to Whom has ultimate authority over us.  The “Truth” is that God “is the Boss” and He, as Creator, created the family.  In His all-knowing and all-powerful existence coupled with His perfect love, He created something that has incredible power over each of us and greatly…
