In this broadcast, Lou Priolo (one of the featured speakers at the upcoming Family Relationships & Parenting Conference) will explore what disrespect is, how it is displayed, why teenagers might be motivated to show it, and what parents can do to help teens correct it.

De-Cluttering: The First Steps to Organization

My husband Bob and I had an experience that transformed our ability to de-clutter our home effectively.  We have always been strong advocates of trying to clean out things we no longer need, especially since we’ve always lived in small homes and we’ve desired all the space we could get.  But when we put our house on the market for sale a few years ago, we became what we thought were temporary extreme de-clutterers (yes, I made up that word) through the use of a rental storage unit; but this actually transformed us into master de-clutterers!  *chuckle*  Our home needed to look and be more spacious. And by de-cluttering, well, one can literally double the amount of space in a home. You’ll have more space for the children to play in, more space for homeschooling, more space for relaxation, more space for company, more space for more children – more space to live in!  I’d like to share the following with you:

  • Strategies and methods for de-cluttering
  • How to be careful with others in your family as you develop plans for de-cluttering and organizing your home

God and Gas Prices

 

“The law from your
mouth is more precious to me
than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.”

~Psalm 119:72

Parenting that honors God must be consistent with what God says about Himself in Scripture. Your appreciation and awe for God and His Son must increase, not decrease. In any relationship, if you begin to take someone for granted, the strength of that relationship begins to decrease. Taking God for granted, as in not having growing love for Him, will lead to inconsistency in the things you say and the things you do.  Children show particular expertise in detecting inconsistencies in parents. If you talk to you children about a God who is wonderful, about a Savior who means everything to you, but then you are down and discouraged about some event that didn’t go your way, you are being inconsistent. Your testimony about the wonder of God is diminished your children’s eyes.

Gas Costs How Much?

gasFor example, you may speak glowingly about the sovereignty of God but then be quickly discouraged by rising gas prices. This discouragement may spill over into worry and short tempers as the price of gas marches upward. Complaints begin about the price of food going up because of high gas prices. Trips to the gas station become an exercise in anxiety as you peek to see how high the gas price has risen since yesterday. (more…)

Webinar Recording: Raising Visionary Kids Who Engage the World for Christ, with Israel Wayne

Raising Visionary Kids - WayneHow do you teach children not to shy away from the giants of this world, but confront them fearlessly? How do you impart the tools of a culture-shaping Biblical worldview into the hands of your children, and also into their hearts? How do you disciple your toddlers and teenagers to become Christ-followers who engage the world for Him?

 

In this final broadcast of the spring series, Israel Wayne uses Scripture to get to the heart of the matter of raising visionary kids. He will challenge:

 

  • Kids to engage the world right now as part of their families.
  • Parents to set the example by engaging in Christ's battles themselves.
  • Everyone to remember this often overlooked truth: if you don't first engage the world for Christ side by side with your children, they will be ill-equipped to engage the world by themselves.

 

Are you engaging the world for Christ with your children?

Webinar Recording: Raising Visionary Kids by Teaching the Reasons Behind Rules
