Pearce Family Discipleship Highlight

I enjoy hearing creative ways that other families disciple their kids to love Jesus and follow in His ways.  Although each family is unique, we can all glean ideas and wisdom from each other, so I thought it would be beneficial to hear from some families as to what Biblical resources and approaches they have found effective in encouraging their children in Christ-like ways.

Keeping God First While On Vacation:
A Family Vacation Devotional

Recently we had the opportunity to take a family vacation with some friends on a cruise to the Bahamas! We had such a wonderful time with our family and friends and enjoyed God’s beautiful creation all around us.   There was only one thing missing… we wished we had a family vacation devotional to do with our kids over the trip to encourage us to keep our hearts more focused on the Lord and His ways!

7 Great Christian Chapter Book Series for Kids

One of my favorite activities during the summer months is reading chapter books with my kids.  I enjoy snuggling on the couch as we read the next chapter and discuss what we can learn from it. There are some great, classic books out there, but lately I have been searching for some good Christian chapter books with a message of faith. We know a few, and I reviewed one of them below, but I asked some friends (and some of their kids) to tell me their favorites and why they liked them.

5 Reasons To Send Teens to Christian Camps  

Last summer I led a small group of teenagers at  Camp 220 with my church. I had heard many great things about this camp and how teens’ lives had been dramatically changed, and I wanted to experience it first hand with the students from my neighborhood Bible club.  It was an unforgettable experience, to say the least.

Best Christian Audio Dramas for Kids

Have you ever wished you could eliminate those countless hours of screen time on long road trips?  What if you could give your kids a constructive activity that the whole family enjoys? I know books are great, and we encourage our kids to read in the car as much as possible. It’s also important to use some car time to talk or play family games, but it’s nice to have other options as well. One of the activities we enjoy on road trips and when traveling around town is listening to audio dramas: stories that come to life through the character’s voices and sound affects without the visual input.

5 Goals For Intentional Parenting

As each new year approaches, I begin to think about what I want to do differently and ask God how I can be more effective and intentional in different areas of my life.  One of the areas I have been praying about is how to be more intentional with my kids.  As a mom, one of the most important assignments I have is to raise my children to know, love, and follow the Lord.

Best Christmas Resources to Focus on Jesus This Holiday Season

What do your kids love about Christmas?  Mine love decorating the Christmas tree (my husband’s least favorite part), making, icing, and eating Christmas cookies, and spending time with their cousins…  Christmas is fun and full of exciting activities, but with so much to look forward to, if we are not careful, it can become easy to loose sight of the main reason for Christmas.
