Being parents who follow Jesus means we have a sweet responsibility to instruct our kids on how to let thankfulness be a way of life, which is so clearly laid out in Scripture. Natalie reminds us how and why to do just that.
What I love about Jesus is that He is aware of all of our situations. He is with us in them whether we choose to acknowledge Him or not. Natalie reminds us how thanking Him in all circumstances helps our perspective through hard and easier seasons.
Sometimes some good, hard work is just the fix for several things…at the top of the list is entitlement. Kelli wonderfully points out how we, as parents, can help our kids remain focused on others.
Here is the truth: life is hard and life is also beautiful. There are seasons of life marked by difficulty and seasons marked by joy. Natalie points us to three things needed to live well in all seasons.
“Integrity” can be defined as the state of being whole and undivided. Jacob points us to ways we can work on being the same person through and through…and bringing our kids alongside in the process.
“…But she really hurt my feelings, Mom!” Parents never enjoy hearing those words from a child. Randi Beth shows us how we can point our children in a direction higher than their current drama. Tough, but so good!
Ever struggle with a bad attitude? It can happen to the best of us…even when we might be in the best of circumstances. Read ahead for an example of how we can rely on God’s truth to remind us where our focus should be.
