6 Discipline Mistakes Parents Make | Ginger Hubbard

Do you find yourself threatening, repeating your instructions, or raising your voice in an attempt to get your children to obey? Are you frustrated because nothing seems to work?

It’s not until later we {Read More}

I sat in the doctor’s office and watched as another mom hurried in with two kids. She made sure to let the front desk clerk know she was early and expected to be able to get in right away. She also let them know (about a dozen times) that she wasn’t happy with having to fill out the necessary paperwork for herself and her kids. “I would have picked this up ahead of time, filled it all out, and made {Read More}

16 Ways to Offer Yourself Grace As a Mom

I don’t know about you, but I don’t need anyone to point out my flaws … because I’m a tough enough critic all by myself. It’s easy for me to see another mom and want to tell her, “It’s okay, you don’t have to be perfect. Don’t stress yourself out trying to be.” Yet I have a hard time speaking those words to myself. I always feel as if I can do better. Always. For so many years I woke {Read More}

Ecclesiastes 4:6

Ecclesiastes 4:6 Better one handful with tranquillity than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind. Prayer Lord, I don’t know when I started believing the lie that more is better. More things consumes my time. More activities take me away from those closest to me—and away from time with you. More desires fill me with longing instead of thankfulness, yet even when I receive what I think I want, it leaves me with emptiness inside. Today, Lord, I {Read More}

Praying for Fruit; Waiting for Harvest | Hettie Brittz

Immediacy is one of my favorite things. I find deep happiness in a perky voice answering my call after only half a ring and in the same-day delivery option on Amazon. Wouldn’t parenting be a breeze if our efforts could bear same-day fruit? Imagine this: We’d call for generous sharing and – tadaaa! – our sons would offer their sisters half of their desert. Bliss. Well, I’ve tried teaching instantaneous good character, without success. When simply asking didn’t do it, {Read More}
