What to Do When Your Teen is Struggling with Their Faith

I was raised in a Christian home. My mom was a children’s pastor.  I felt like I was always at church.  But when I got to high school, I started having doubts about my faith.  I was no longer interested in taking everything my parents said at face value.  I had to figure it out…

For me, as a teacher, August is like the beginning of the year.  I try to set New School Year’s Resolutions, create new habits, and set myself up for success.  However, many times I fall short (probably because I bite off more than I can chew.) One goal that I have worked hard to maintain…

Is There Hope for my Children in an Uncertain World?

There is overwhelming joy and raw emotion in reminiscing about old photographs. With tear-stained cheeks I recently remembered when my kids were small.

Introducing Your Child to Prayer

As far back as my memories go, Jesus has always been an ever-present figure in my life. I don’t remember the exact day that my family introduced me to Him, but I can’t remember a time without Him. Knowing this, I had no doubt that I wanted to do the same for my child. Being…

3 Reasons to Respond to Your Child’s Heart Before Their Actions

“Mom, just let me explain.” “I don’t want to hear your excuses right now.” “But Mom, please, just listen for a second.” You admit it — you made a mistake, you messed up, and you feel terrible. You simply want 2 minutes to let them know that your heart was in the right place, even if…
