It could be that faulty child-training methods have snared your line of thinking. A quick bribe or mild threat looks appealing to a parent’s appetite for gaining control of a child, especially in a hurried situation. So, we take the bait — hook, line, and sinker. It’s not until later we {Read More}

The 6-Word Prayer that Transformed My Parenthood | Eryn Lynum

I’m not sure when I first whispered this plea to the Lord, but it must have been one of those times we parents face often, a moment dripping with fear and anxious thoughts. Six small words slipped off my lips. Little did I know how they’d be a constant companion to me in the following days and, I am sure, the coming years of raising my children. Fear is a too-familiar companion these days. It lurks around every corner, hunching {Read More}

She Says I’m Her Best Friend | Dawn Camp

It took 19 years of parenthood and seven other children before I gave birth to the one I call my mini-me. She arrived the year after my mother passed away, and we moved when she was six weeks old. If that wasn’t stressful enough, we owned two houses for seven months (we bought one before the other sold—never again!).

Writer Wednesday with Terri Blackstock

Five years ago, my husband and I built a house that featured my dream office. It had everything I’d ever dreamed of. Big windows out to a wooded area, a fireplace, a seating area with a comfy couch, chair, and coffee table, and not one, but three desks, so I could work from different angles in the office. I imagined myself writing while gazing out the window, drawing inspiration from trees, birds, and the occasional deer crossing our yard. Boy, {Read More}

Stop Calling My Daughter Names | Kelly Johnson

“I’m so stupid! I can’t do anything right. I’ll never be able to do this! I’m an idiot.” Frustrated and overwhelmed, my daughter threw up her hands in despair and plopped her head down face first onto the kitchen table in defeat. I wasn’t sure either one of us was going to survive another round with her math homework. A strong writer and an imaginative storyteller, she saw numbers as her nemesis. Despite her good grades in other subjects, she {Read More}
