I think that the goal is to teach our children to obey quickly, but search as I may, I cannot find that as a standard in scripture. And so I may find relief in the grace I have found in scripture.
Join me in my podcast today where I discuss the way to contentment in marriage, how to build this legacy for a lifetime and why God considers your worship of Him as a reflection of how well you choose to love and live in harmony with your spouse.
Discipleship and mentoring took place daily at our table, because of our intentional commitment to inform their values, to reach their hearts with truth and messages from the heart of God.
The lifegiving home must start with a heart that says, "I will be the hostess of life here within these walls to serve all who come here so that they may taste and see that the Lord is good by being here with me."
Our newest book, The Lifegiving Parent, is all about the ways we walk along the path of life with our children, encouraging them to find life in God. Available now for preorder!
If we understand the importance of building this foundation of loving our precious children and teaching them to love others, we will give them the power they need to build strong relationships, stay strong in marriage, learn to work in ministry and a profession well--in short, we will give them the ability to have a fuller, more fulfilling life.
I find myself so anxious to share with you, my precious friends, the joy I find in the message of Christ this year, while deep in the mire of challenges and difficulties. Though I am not able to read or look at my computer or screens because of my eye injury, I have done my best to leave you a podcast message and this blog post that I hope will be of come encouragement to you. Know that you are all in my prayers.
Through the ups and downs, I've been thankful for the graces of God to allow my sweet friends to be near me, my family to support me, and the thousands of letters from people saying they were praying. Your kindnesses often brought me to tears.
I wanted to update you today about my eye injury, so my friends and I recorded a short podcast for you. At the end, we briefly mention the new Lifegiving Parent Launch Community on Facebook. I need many of you to help me as I walk through this valley and struggle through this eye injury. Gretchen, Misty, and Jennie will guide you and provide ideas of how you can help me get the word out.
Thank you so much for your many prayers. I am having plenty of opportunities to practice this principle of character training in my own life right now. I am still seeking answers from eye specialists as I continue to battle pain from inflammation and possible infection in my cornea. My vision is still very impaired. I would so appreciate your continued prayers for wisdom and healing. I know that the One who is walking with me through this is faithful.
