Jordan Family Highlight:
Family Short-Term Mission Trip

I have always dreamed of taking a family short-term mission trip one day.  Family vacations are so great, but getting to serve others, be a part of the great commission, and experience another country and culture as a family would be an unforgettable experience!   While we have yet to do this with our children, I wanted to find a family that has for my next family highlight. I was introduced to the Jordan family of Houston who went on a family mission trip this year.

The Importance of Teaching Our Children to Obey: Interview with Joey and Carla Link Part 1

I recently read the book, Why Can’t I Get My Kids to Behave, by Joey and Carla Link of Parenting Made Practical, and I love how they not only explain the importance of teaching children to obey but also the practical side of how to do it! The Links get to the heart of obedience and provide practical tools to help train your kids that are easy to understand and implement.

Jaimez Family Highlight: Sharing God’s Love through Neighborhood Bible Clubs

I have had the privilege of knowing and serving with the Jaimez family for several years now and have been so blessed by them and their heart to serve the Lord. Even though Carmen is a single mom, she does not let the difficulties of life hold her back from all that God has for her and her family. She not only serves with her immediate family, but she also serves with several of her sisters and their families too!

The Importance of Teen Discipleship: Interview with Pastor Sterling Archer

I enjoy working with teenagers in ministry and believe that teen discipleship is so important because they are at a pivotal point in their walk with God. By this age, teens have heard a lot of information from the many influences around them, including parents, youth pastors, peers, music, media, teachers, and education, and they are coming to their own conclusions about life. If they do not have the foundation of knowledge about what they believe, coupled by a growing personal relationship with Jesus, they are more apt to fall away from their faith.

Importance of Finding Security in Jesus

While praying about which character trait to focus on for my monthly devotional, the word “secure” kept coming to my mind. This is not a traditional character trait that we tend to focus on as parents, and I tried to brush it away, but I felt God continuing to press it into my heart.

As I continued to pray and seek God on the matter, I felt that He wanted us as parents to focus on security, because it is one of the most important attributes our children need to thrive in this life.
