  • 7 Practices That Help Children Know Their True Worth

    The world tells our children who they are and who they are not--in a hurry.It begins as early as the playground, the track team, the classroom, and nights out with friends. It macerates harder with social media and of course, there’s television and magazines too. They become teens and then adults who struggle to know their worth, their value.They often wonder if they are enough and struggle to fight the lies they’re being fed.But what if we, as their parents, had the power to change that? What if we had the power to raise faith-filled kids who know their worth? What if we became intentional about building our children up in truth, about reminding them of their true identity?What if we became deliberate about helping our children know their worth?We can. We are the parents, mothers and fathers that were created specifically in mind when God gave us our children. We know them inside and out. We know how funny, brilliant, and wonderful they are.And the more intentional we are about instilling their sense of self-worth, the better it will go for them when they are adults.Many of us have to work so hard to undo negative views of ourselves because of our upbringing. We pour over self-help books, go to therapy, constantly work at breaking old habits and learning new good ones that reflect our true value instead of what we believed growing up.Let’s make this job easier on our kids by using godly principles. Here are six practices to help children know their worth.Photo Credit: ©Unsplash/Eye-for-Ebony

  • 4 Things You Can Do for Your Adult Children Who Don’t Believe in God

    Having adult children who do not have faith may be one of the hardest roads for a loving Christian parent to travel. Even if you have done everything right — you attended church when your kids were growing up, prayers were said every night at the dinner table, and you openly turned to God in both praise and supplication — sometimes those sweet little kids who so openly, trustingly believed in Christ grow into questioning, doubting, and even impatient adults who shut you down at the mere mention of God or His son.You know your adult children were lovingly created by God, and eternally loved by Him; Jeremiah I:5 pinpoints the intimate nature of that holy love, stating, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”You are probably praying every day for your adult child’s salvation, too — the most important action you can take in all situations. So, why can’t your kids just get with the program, and believe?There is good news in this challenging situation. The Lord gave us free will for a very important reason: He wants us to come to Him willingly. He does not want robots who love Him because our parents told us to.Who hasn’t been moved by the depiction of Christ knocking on the closed door? Many have not opened that door until adulthood. But they have opened it, finally understanding that stanza of the beloved old hymn “Amazing Grace”: “How precious did that grace appear, the hour I first believed.”This can happen for your adult children! God will ultimately do the heavy lifting, but here are some ways you can help while respecting your adult children's’ autonomy — and even strengthening the parent-child bond in the process.Photo Credit: ©GettyImages/fizkes

  • Feed Your Faith, Not Your Doubts

    Have you ever noticed that when you focus on one specific prob­lem in your life, the normal things you deal with every day tend to fade into the background? For example, not too long ago, multiple warning lights on my car’s dashboard popped on during a road trip I was taking with my wife and kids, including the dreaded “check engine” light. I couldn’t think about anything else other than the fact that my car needed maintenance as soon as possi­ble. It was difficult to focus on the subject matter my family was talking about throughout the rest of the day.
