Our Kids' Friendships

Our Kids' Friendships
We moved in July and I am reminding the boys to be discerning with new friendships because they are vulnerable. And we have learned the hard way that we also have to be careful with friendships in the church. Youth in the church can be heading down a path of compromise as well. You can just never be too careful. That’s why it’s so very important for us to cover this in prayer. Read More

And this girl has had to learn how to preach God’s Word to her heart in times of disappointment as well... Read More

Connecting with Our Families
Last year, my son was a senior and he came home at 12:30 each day. I scheduled my day so that I could have lunch with him before he got busy with homework and activities. Some people might have thought I was silly and some days my son probably thought to himself "oh, brother". Ha! However, I am so thankful I had that time with him because now he's at college 15 hours away. Read More

Maybe your child is struggling? I'm so sorry. Currently, I am trying to support and pray a couple of my children through some struggles.
