How many times have you told your kids to “Say you’re sorry!” Realistically, how many times has that brought a heart or attitude change? I had found myself saying this way too much to my three boys ages 8, 5 and 2. Constant rough-housing and arguing can be the “norm” of some of our days and saying sorry every 5 minutes brings no change. From a young age, we can lead our children to the source of truth to get to the root of the problem. So often the way we parent only leads to temporary behavior change, not a lasting heart change. God’s word has everything we need to teach and train our children, we just need to know where to look. In the heat of the moment it is hard to think clearly and speak words of wisdom through our frustration. Being ready ahead of time can completely turn around the hearts and attitudes of not only our children, but ourselves.
I have several resources from Doorposts that I use and rely on. They provide biblical character training and parenting tools laid out beautifully in books and charts that are easy to reference in those difficult moments. I have used their resources for sometime now.
My husband and I have been reading, “Winning the Parenting War,” by David Clarke. He recently spoke at a conference at our church and it came at a time the perfect time. I had been feeling at my wit’s end with my parenting skills (or lack there of, ha!) and David Clarke just has such a comical, toungue-in-cheek way of helping you realize that you are not on your own and brings clarity to all the confusing situations that arise daily for parents.
A couple of months ago, we were at another conference when I came across this next resource. It’s simplicity and ease of use make it a powerful tool. I have had several tender moments with my boys using this chart. I expect we will have plenty of opportunities to use “Wise Words for Moms”by Ginger Plowman. It is well laid out in a calendar style booklet and leads the child and parent through steps of heart probing, reproof and encouragement, with several very timely Bible references. Using God’s wisdom to teach and train ourselves and our children will bear the true fruit of loving kindness…rather than forced and fake, “I’m sorrys.”
I love the Wise Words for Moms resource so much that I wanted to share one with you all today!! So I put together a giveaway for THREE of you to get one for yourself! Enter through the Rafflecopter Giveaway!
I recently began contributing over at day2day joys, a blog that focuses on faith, family and health. Rachel’s heart is that day2day joys can be a place where mothers and women can connect and talk about their experiences, their hurts, their joys, and still focus on faith, family and health. It has been such an honor to team up with Rachel and the other amazing women on her contributor team! Check them out, you will be blessed by their encouraging words and creative ideas!
She’s “relaunching” the blog with a new design and a new, broader tagline that will encompass the blog’s tune more eloquently.
The hope of all the writers is that what we write will encourage you and will help you to be a better homemaker, mom, wife or mother in the making and woman, joyfully.
Note from Rachel: Thanks for being a part of day2dayjoys.com whether you’re new here or have been around for a while!!! You should see the full site over the next few days so don’t be surprised if you hop on to the website and it looks totally different.
