  • Be the spiritual thermostat

    “Prayer turns ordinary parents into prophets who shape the destinies of their children, grandchildren, and every generation that follows.” -Mark Batterson

    One of the greatest gifts you can give your children, or grandchildren, is to show them what it means to love Jesus with your own life. Be a living example of a life shaped and anchored in prayer. There is a laundry list of reasons why we may not take prayer seriously, or only go to prayer during those ASAP moments. We need a fresh love again for prayer! How about as parents, we lift the bar on prayer in our homes, and teach our children what it means to call upon the name of the Lord, no matter what our circumstances? If we want our children to follow Jesus as adults, then let’s make it a priority for ourselves to follow and love Jesus with authenticity and passion.

    You are the spiritual thermostat in your home. Let’s keep it hot by persevering in prayer!

    How have you been shaping your children and grandchildren’s destinies?

  • Grandparents Matter

    Grandparents, you’ve done it! Your kids are adults! They have their own careers, and they are starting their own families. The many years of relentlessly leading and guiding your kids are paying off, and it may appear your job is done. It’s tempting to celebrate; to kick back and enjoy this new season of your life. Well, you definitely deserve some much needed rest…but don’t celebrate too early. You’re not done yet.

    Research shows that the #1 influencer in a child’s spiritual life is their parents. No surprise there. The runner up though, at #2, is a close family member, specifically grandparents. This makes sense, and is supported in scripture. Check out Deuteronomy 4:9. “Only take heed to yourself, and diligently keep yourself, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. And teach them to your children and your grandchildren.”

    As grandparents, you have a tremendous opportunity to make a significant difference in the lives of not only your kids, but of your precious grandbabies! Don’t celebrate too early. Make sure your kids and grandkids love Jesus more than anything. Once that happens, celebrate away!
