Tomorrow We Start! 30 Days of Child-Training Boot Camp for Busy, Busy Mamas!

Why Learning to Obey is Good for Our Children (Obedience, Part 2)

Why learning to obey is good for our children

Last week, we looked at some ways we can easily allow our children to disobey. This sparked some good questions, which will be addressed in next week’s post.

Here, as in many aspects of Christian parenting, we should look to the example of our Heavenly Father. Why does God ask us to obey Him? How […]

Thirty (Seven) Days in Isaiah 53 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 37: What’s Next?

We’ve come to the end of our study. 🙁 We’ve seen what our sin cost Jesus. We’ve seen how He willingly laid down His life to bring us healing and salvation. We’ve grown in our love for such a Savior.

Thirty (One) Days in Psalm 103 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 31: Remembering His Blessings

We’ve spent a month studying this one amazing psalm. We’ve slowed down to meditate on these blessings that David urges his soul — our ours — to not forget. Many of us have realized in a new way that we really are forgiven, that we really are loved with a steadfast love that is not going to let us go. What can we do to help us not forget? What will help keep us anchored […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 103 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 15: Memorize

Each verse of the passage starts with the next letter of the Hebrew alphabet, so that the entire alphabet is used by the […]
