Thirty Days of Child Training Boot Camp for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 31: Doers of the Word

We’ve come to the last day of our study.  I have really enjoyed studying with you all! You’ve finished your review. God has probably taught you many things from His Word along the way, because His Word is “living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart”  (Heb. 4:12, […]

Thirty Days of Child Training Boot Camp for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 30: Review

We’ve seen over and over that the training of our children begins with our own humble response to the Holy Spirit’s work in our lives. We are discipling — disciple-ing, not just disciplining — our children. A disciple imitates his teacher.

Now it’s time to look back over the lessons, tie them all together, and prayerfully decide what we’re going to do with what we’ve been learning. We’ve considered our own commitment to loving and obeying God. […]

We’ve been looking at strife – where it comes from, what it is like, what we should do instead of quarreling, and how to help our children overcome the temptation to quarrel.
