Posted by on Sep 6, 2018 in Blog, Bonus Days | 0 comments

As the air turns cooler and school bells signal the start of a new year, parents around the nation are gearing up to help their children complete homework. There is perhaps nothing more frustrating than watching a child struggle under a heavy load of work or looking at your 4th grader and admitting that you can’t do this type of math either. The homework horrors hit the best of us. But, if you’re already living in agony about the...

Fathering and Child Sponsorship

Posted by on Sep 5, 2018 in A CHERISHED FAMILY, Blog, Dad Voice | 0 comments

For a number of years, our family has sponsored a child from Haiti. There are numerous reasons we have chosen to do so, and many of them come from my desire to be a good father. What specifically has sponsorship taught me (and my children)? I’m privileged to have been born in a country that has so much, and yet there are so many countries that have so little. It’s easy for me to part with a small portion...

As moms and dads put kids back on the school bus at...

Bless the Teachers

Open House just ended. Your child’s teacher is wiped out and sprawled on her sofa after meeting a bazillion parents and students—who think she will remember each of you and all the information on those sheets you placed in her hands. She was already tired from preparing each little detail to beautify the classroom your child will inhabit. Compilation of curriculum, handouts, materials, and gathering of supplies—many of them paid for with her own money—is done. Lesson plans are...

One-on-One Time

Posted by on Aug 28, 2018 in A HAPPY HOME, Blog, From the Heart | 2 comments

We call it “One-Oh Time” in our house. My littlest coined the phrase a while back. In was her baby-talk way of asking me to spend “one-on-one time” with her. We laughed at the cute expression, but it stuck. Now we all use the term for our special mommy-and-me times. We started this practice of one-on-one time a few years ago during a particularly frustrating parenting season. My days were spent correcting and instructing, yet the negative behavior continued....

Posted by on Aug 27, 2018 in A LASTING FAITH, Blog, Prayers and Promises | 0 comments

It’s a time of preparation, purchasing new clothing and school supplies. But it’s also a time of preparation for life. And since God told us to bring up a child in the way he or she should go, praying and teaching them to pray will equip them for success in anything they undertake. So let’s do this. I’ll provide a list of items and associations, so that when we purchase or use these, we’re reminded to pray specific prayers...
