Dear Responsible Momma,

  How does a high responsibility Mom take care of 5 boys who have little interest in responsibility?     #1: She goes crazy. She spends her every step trying to command them in “duties”—wash your hands, take off your shoes, put away your toys, make your bed, brush your teeth, stay on task! Thus,… Read more »

Lazy Parenting

We’ve all heard it.   “Do as I say, not as I do.”   What does “Do as I say not as I do” imply? It implies.. quite bluntly… you are a lazy parent. Telling your child to “do as you say and not as you do” is a cop-out of all cop outs. You… Read more »

  • blinded by my list

    1 Thessalonians 5:19 says: “Do not put out the Spirit’s fire;” I was talking with Lesley tonight and we were sharing how we each tend to put out the Spirit’s fire… one way that I shared, is by having my to do list (or lists at times) that blinds. Granted there are good things on… Read more »

  • soaking it in.

    I was watching Roman the other day as he was playing with his “little people“….. he couldn’t see me as I was peeking around the corner at him. I just took in the moment of being proud of him and “pleased” with him (I told him to go play until supper was ready)… What I… Read more »

  • got-it-together

    I recently have been asking that God give me a world vision. I had a conversation with a close friend and he suggested to pray that God would give me an accurate world vision…… well, I was put in my place the other day when I heard someone say on a podcast that “most of… Read more »

  • live without quotations

    I’ve been hungering books lately, maybe just reading in general – so I’ve started to read The Case for Christ, but Lee Strobel, something that stood out at me tonight while I was reading was the fact that ancient Greek and Hebrew languages [of which the bible was originally written] did not have a mark… Read more »

  • watching eye

    “you haven’t left his watching eye” I heard these lyrics tonight, and I was reminded how close God watches me. Even when I don’t remember this… he is there watching all day. He knows the pain, the difficulty, the frustration of each and every circumstance. He knows the distance we feel from loved ones, he… Read more »

  • insanity

    i truly believe being a disciple of Christ, means to transform yourlogic to that of Christ’s – if you think about it, what Logic Does Godhave except that he can do all things? So what an amazing position thatputs us in when we follow him… my logic is endless. and my logic doesnot coincide with… Read more »

  • logic, the enemy of faith?

    I heard this statement tonight – and I’m not sure where I stand concerning it… the statement went like this: “logic is the enemy of faith”. is logic from God? so how could logic be the enemy of faith?? So maybe the statement should have been “logic is the enemy of a faith in God“….?… Read more »

  • temptation

    i was listening to a podcast the other day when something startled me…. the teacher said (and I am paraphrasing) : if we neglect to acknowledge that we are tempted everyday, then we have been deceived. For a moment I thought “I wasn’t tempted today….” then I caught my self. I was caught up in… Read more »

  • do what satan hates.

    Recently I have had the honor of serving with a number of people from CBEFC and other churchs in the area to bring in a group called The Power Team. The thing that I have seen so clear in the preperation and planning with this is that satan hates this type of thing (anything that… Read more »

  • intention

    This weekend was a great weekend, it was filled with building memories with Lesley and Roman, we raked leaves, went on a walk, played with Roman’s mega blocks on the living room floor, spent time with family… but this all took intention. I learned something this weekend, and was reminded this morning while I was… Read more »
