Over all, keep it simple. If you manage to find success with one of these, don't feel like you need to try them all! There is no 'one size fits all' to potty training so listen to your littles, address their needs but be firm in your style and chosen method.
I learned that when we confess, we are opening up the wound so that He can heal us, truly heal us. No more 12 steps to 'self care', no more band-aid solutions that eventually lead to infection and spread into other areas of life.
God wants the matter settled, once and for all so that we can move on to the next course in our spiritual growth.
Struggling to find peace when I look at the world. Can some of my mature brothers and sisters in Christ help me?
I could feel the heat of the day, the echoing of the sun's rays off the pavement as I ran between two fields. Both full and ready for harvest. Something green and tall to my left and bright, golden wheat to my right. While I felt no pain, other than the burning of the scorched blacktop on my bare feet, I noticed I was bleeding.
The big kick in the butt came when we decided to take a break, spending a few days away from ‘school’ and just focusing on bonding again, enjoying each other’s company. A few days turned into a week, a week turned into a month and before I knew it we had completely deserted our homeschool program altogether.
Have you ever felt His silence? What was happening in your mind, in your life during this time? How did you react?
10 Things being a mother has taught me about life and people. From social anxiety to spiritual growth and house rules. What has parenting taught you?
“But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” Ephesians 4:20-24 KJV
This morning, verse 20 came to my mind. (But ye have not so learned Christ;) And I’ve been stewing over it all day. Basically, it means “you know better”. What He has taught (revealed) to you, you should act in obedience to do. These things will keep you clean and fit for the Master’s use.
Throughout the day more in depth information proceeded from this verse. Right now, we have a blessed and splendid opportunity…

One year old birthday parties are another one of those parties people tend to go all out for. It’s insane how much effort goes into celebrating someone who wont remember anything about that special day. As parents, we know it, yet we still do it. I think we are just celebrating surviving a full year.
We send out invitations, spend a ridiculous amount on decorations and balloons, and we invite people our poor baby may not even know. Some of us even go the extra length to get professional photos done of our little monsters annihilating a cake.
Instagram is full of them. The extremely popular “smash” cake. It’s adorable, it’s extremely messy, and the intense sugar rush is so worth the memories. Even if we did spend a fortune on the photos. Who cares!
For the parents who fall in the middle of it’s not worth it, and let’s…

A few weeks ago I have wrote a post about how many enemies we carry inside of us. This is some sort of continuance post on that topic.
In moments of dissatisfaction with our own life and destiny, we often seek to blame someone or something for our current state of affairs.
Often, this blame falls on those around us, whether it’s
family, friends, neighbors, work colleagues, bosses… Sometimes our country,
politicians, journalists are guilty for our dissatisfaction… And sometimes
our annoyance is caused by the weather or the seasons…
Do you understand in which direction am I going?
We blame everybody for everything. For it is easier to throw
guilt on others than to take fate in their own hands. For how, we the perfect
specimens of the human race, were responsible for our own failure?! How can we
admit that we are not right, and that our…

Still, as difficult as this road has been, the rewards have been twice as powerful. The reward of knowing that my children will have their mother, not an absent parent. The reward of knowing others have found comfort in the testimonies shared here, if only for a moment. Just long enough to spark the fire of recovery within them as well. These alone have been an honor I had underestimated and at times over looked.
This activity can be used to teach your children the importance of daily devotionals, speaking kind words to their peers regularly and/or the overall idea that our minds and bodies need to be reminded of positive teachings throughout our lifetime.
It was the fall of 2015. My husband & I had separated that summer, & I was doing all I could to support my three boys on the seasonal income of a server, on top of every other challenge the enemy had tried throwing my way ever since I had made the decision to give my life back to Christ. Every day was a struggle in one way or another, to say the least. But I was making my stand, refusing to give up.
During the financial struggles as I worked to build a new life centered around God, He provided help through His people & my church family, ensuring we never went without. I remember one Sunday that summer, I walked into to church with only six dollars in my pocket, no food at home for my boys, & had to work…
