Bonding with Your Child

Bonding with Your Child Through Boundaries

Boundaries sound uncomfortable. So how can they benefit your parenting? Today we are going to answer that question and give you some tips on child rearing.

What sorts of things does a child need? Look at the following passage:

Psalm 78:2 – 8 I will open my mouth in a parable; …things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might, and the wonders that he has done. He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers to teach to their children, that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments…

That’s such a lovely passage, which shows the importance of passing on our faith. We long for our children to follow God because living in sin will hurt them. If only we could follow a recipe and turn out perfect kids every time, but it’s not that easy.  Instead, it’s important to stay on our knees and to ask for guidance from wise counselors.

June Hunt and Peggy Sue Wells have a new book which offers help, Bonding with Your Child Through Boundaries.  June laid the foundation with sound teaching from the Word, and Peggy Sue added her experience as the mother of seven.

Build a Great Marriage

September 4, 2015

Build a Great Marriage:

Popular media today seldom depicts enduring love in marriage. Many people seem to be on a quest for that special someone who will fulfill their dreams and make them happy, while other choose never to marry. All the while the divorce rate climbs and many despair.

However, you and your spouse can build a great marriage. In Ephesians five God reveals his design for marriage, which depicts the relationship of Christ and the church. God issues that very unpopular command for a wife to submit to her husband.  But he also says he man should love his wife enough to die for her.

Greg and Julie Gorman share how God helped them untangle the knots in their relationship. You’ll enjoy listening to both Greg and Julie open their hearts.

Parenting and Praise

August 29, 2015

Parenting and Praise:

For me, parenting and praise don’t belong in the same category. Many days I find it hard to do even though it pleases God. On days when I drag my feet, I remind myself how incredible God is. After all,  the Psalmist said, “Shout for joy in the LORD, O you righteous! Praise befits the upright.” Very convicting. I have to work at it.

My guest, Becky Harling, found added benefits of praise. She shared how much it impacted her life and her parenting. Listen, enjoy, learn!
