How much better to get wisdom than gold, to choose understanding rather than silver. Proverbs 16:16
One of the most powerful things we can do as a parent is pray for our children. We know that. But so often, we don’t DO that. Let’s face it, busy-ness, hurried-...ness, a mile long to-do list, and constant distractions can keep us from doing what we know we should be doing: PRAYING.
Here are 12 powerful Scriptures to pray for your children.
Some good examples of ways we add unnecessary stress to our parenting journey. This would certainly apply to grandparents as well if you spend any amount of time with your grandchildren.
Words can hurt and have long lasting impact, especially with children. Dr. Dobson reminds us to be careful what we say in front of our children/grandchildren.
4 THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU WAKE UP FEELING EXHAUSTED
Have you had those mornings where you wake up feeling utterly exhausted? I definitely have! It has been a goal... of mine to make sure I’m getting enough sleep every night so that my body isn’t tired when I wake.
There is more to waking up feeling tired. I often find that we confuse being physically tired with having hit a point of burnout. Maybe the feelings you are dealing with in the morning have little do with your sleep habits, and everything to do with your mind habits.
If you are rolling out of bed each day already feeling defeated, it is no wonder you want to pull the covers over your head and dip out of existence for a while longer.

God's peace is like a river, not a pond. In other words, a sense of health and well-being can permeate our homes even when we're in white-water rapids. ~ Beth Moore ~
These things I have spoken to you,
that in Me you may have peace.
In the world you will have tribulation;...
but be of good cheer,
I have overcome the world.
Reflecting on these verses from Romans 5:2-4, thinking of my own struggles which pale in comparison to others - as Christians, we have two choices - succumb to our trials, or rejoice in the HOPE of the GLORY of God. and PERSEVERE through it.
By persevering, we're building CHARACTER and through that character, we're building HOPE. Because of the GLORY of God, Hope never fails. Have a blessed day my friends. ~ Abby
Today, ask God to help you make your home a reflection of His presence. Take time to pray: “Lord, thank You for the house I call home. Give me insight and wisdom in making my home reflect Your presence. You are welcome here! Amen.”
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
