CH OnAir Broadcast: Thanksters or Cranksters: How to Cultivate Hearts of Gratitude, with Rachel Jankovic

 2015_OA_Jankovic_E-head

As any parent of little children knows, being in the car can be quite the challenge. The opportunities for infighting between siblings are all the more available due to the close quarters. In this broadcast, Rachel Jankovic will share the system her family uses. It’s called “Thanksters or Cranksters.”

Helping small children focus on the things they do have, rather than the things they don’t, encourages hearts of gratitude and comes with the benefit of reducing fussiness. It even works on adults!

CH OnAir Broadcast: Returning to the “Why” when you get stuck in the “What,” with Dwight Cover

CH2014_Cover_600x315_2

Dear Friends,

It was Saturday morning of the Family Relationships & Parenting Conference in Ocean Shores, WA, and I had just sat down to listen to Pastor Dwight Cover’s keynote session, “Why Your Family Matters in the Advance of God’s Kingdom.”

In a matter of minutes into Dwight’s talk, I jumped out of my chair, walked over to my producer for Christian Heritage OnAir, Danny Craig, and said, ”We have to have this guy on the program!”

I could tell Dwight was passionate about the family, but what stood out to me even more was his passing comment about how he and his wife had lost their way – after 20 years of homeschooling! They got disconnected from the “WHY” and had started to drop the ball on the “WHAT”.

Now I could relate to that!

If you can too, please listen in to this next episode of Christian Heritage OnAir as Pastor and homeschooling father, Dwight Cover, shares his testimony of returning to the “Why” when he got stuck in the “What.” Listen in for six reasons we must keep the “Why” in view and the transformation we can experience when we do.

“See” you there!

Dr. Thomas Lamar
Host, Christian Heritage OnAir

CH OnAir Broadcast: How to Raise God-Worshipping Children, with Dr. Joel Beeke

Beeke Broadcast

Many parents begin the Homeschool Journey motivated by a strong desire to nurture a deep and enduring love for God in their children. Over time, they realize that passing on their faith requires something more than simply schooling them at home.

So how do you pass on your deepest convictions to your children in such a way that they learn to worship God on their own? How do you daily bring them to Christ – fully realizing that He, alone, can save them? On September 9 at 7pm, Joel Beeke will join us live to present the familiar biblical pattern of daily discipleship – but in a fresh and winsome way. Tune in to hear the heartfelt testimony of a man whose life was transformed by parents who understood how to raise God-worshiping children.

CH OnAir Broadcast: Walking with Your Sons on the Journey to Manhood, with Craig Houston

Houston LVB
Play

 

Dear Fellow Dads,

I love my boys – all five of them – and I want the very best for them. I want them to grow up to be mighty men who fear God, and God alone. But I also want them to be tender, humble, self-sacrificing men who lay down their lives for others.

Sometimes it’s tempting to look for a special formula that will guarantee our sons will turn out exactly as we envision. There isn’t a special formula. 

I’m convinced, however, that there is a special journey. This is the journey of a father walking beside his son into manhood. This is the journey of a father giving his heart to his sons, with the desire for their hearts in return.

This is the journey I’m seeking to walk with my five boys. And if you desire to walk this journey too, I’d like to invite you to listen to the recording of this Christian Heritage OnAir Live Video Broadcast recorded on August 5, as we explore:

  • How we can give our hearts to our sons, and truly make the effort to gain their’s.
  • How we can build trust with our sons.
  • How we can help our sons reach their full potential, acknowledging their unique natural gifts, spiritual gifts, personalities, and passions.
  • How we can train our sons to understand the importance of work and diligence.
  • How we can lovingly chasten our sons as our Heavenly Father chastens us.
  • How we can teach our sons to love God and others, preferring others better than themselves.
  • How we can give our sons the opportunity to exercise leadership….and fail in the process.
Dads, this world is an unfriendly place for boys who want to become godly men. Let’s not let make them walk this road alone.
Your Brother in Christ,
Pastor Craig Houston

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…)

Advice on Family Prayer

On April 16,1604, Matthew Henry preached an abundantly practical sermon to the families gathered in his congregation. One part of the sermon was for equipping them for prayer in their households. Here is what he said:

Five things especially you should have upon your heart in your family prayer, and should endeavor to bring something of each into every prayer with your families:

1. You ought to make family acknowledgements on your dependence upon God and his Providences as you are a family.

Give unto the Lord the Glory due unto his Name; give honor to God as the Founder of families by his ordinance, because it was not good for man to be alone; as the founder of your families by his Providence, for he it is that buildeth the house, and setteth the solitary in families. Give honor to him as the owner and ruler of families… (more…)

For Young Men: Why Don’t We Like Goals?

goal

I have noticed that many people are reluctant to set goals.  The fact is, I can be reluctant myself in this area.  Goals seem so “concrete”, so “un-movable”.  I like flexibility and spontaneity, and setting goals and budgets just seems to kill that.

But, the old axiom says, “if you plan for nothing, you will hit it every time.”  I have found this to be true in my own life. (more…)
