Enough

Daughter hugging father

by Bethany Forster Many lucky grownups like me can look back to a time of childhood bliss (blighted as it may be by pet deaths and mathematics). I imagine you would like your child to look back on the current days with similar fondness. Is that thought discouraging? After all, you had to harass them for the fifth time today about doing their piano practice or you lost your temper […]

New Things Happening!

I need to show you what I’ve been focusing on instead of writing blog posts the last few days. Our eleventh grandchild, Samson, made his appearance last Tuesday, and I’ve had the privilege of helping out his incredible parents for the past week! Before I show you his pictures — my grandmotherly duty and honor — I also want to invite you to join us in a new part of our […]

Parenting in 3-D

We go to movie theaters once or twice a year, for the special experience of watching a new movie with friends and family. My wife and I wanted to see the new Star Trek movie, so one night after the kids were all asleep my parents took up the watch and we snuck out the door. The local theater was only showing 3-D at $13 a ticket, so we made […]

Children in the Worship Service

When our children were young, we made the decision to keep them in the worship service with us on Sundays. We wanted them to learn how to worship alongside us. We wanted them to hear the singing and learn to sing with us. We wanted them to be in the presence of the saints while we prayed, while we heard the Word preached, while we read the Word responsively, while […]

Time for a Giveaway!

Thanks to all of you who studied Ephesians 6 with me over the past month! I have appreciated your fellowship, and I pray that God has used your time in the Word to change you and to draw you closer to Him.

30 Days in Ephesians 6, Day 9: Obey

Now that we have looked in a general way at Paul’s instructions to children, fathers, servants, and masters, let’s take a closer look at each of those commands. Word studies, cross-references, commentaries, and looking at other translations can all help us gain a better understanding of a verse or passage of Scripture, and free Bible study websites help us do this kind of studying in a fraction of the time […]

Thirty Days in Ephesians 6: Day 1

Welcome to our study of Ephesians 6! I’m really looking forward to studying this chapter with you! Limiting our study of Ephesians 6 to just thirty days is going to be a challenge! This portion of Scripture is packed with riches! My prayer is that you will want to continue studying the chapter on your own when we reach the end of the month, because we certainly won’t study everything […]

Join Us in Our Month-Long Study of Ephesians 6!

Wrapping paper tubes. Garden stakes. Umbrellas. Scraps of lumber. Tree branches. Rulers. Pool noodles. Fingers. What do they all have in common? If you have any boys in your house, you probably know. Most any innocent-looking item that is longer than it is wide can become a sword in the hands of a child who is eager and ready to do battle. No swords in the house? No problem. They’ll […]
