Parenthood in the Local Church: Part 5, Discipline

Blog_8.28.19_Discipline

"Bryson, what are you thinking? Why would you do that? Stop tackling your sister; she obviously doesn’t like it! Amaya, STOP whining! Use your words!” I don’t want to admit how often my parenting looks something like this and has been void of any real parenting. I naturally approach discipline attempting to achieve behavior modification; often this is acco...

Parenthood in the Local Church: Part 4, Catechism

Blog_8.18.19_Catechism

Children are sponges. Research has proven it, and we know this by experience. We all have songs, chants, and facts we learned as children that are forever imprinted on our brains. As faulty as our memories become as we age, those imprints from youth remain. This is why catechism is such a powerful tool for our children’s instruction!...

Parenthood in the Local Church: Part 3, Circle Time

Blog_5.28.19_Circle Time

In the little years of our parenting, my husband worked especially long hours. He would get up for some Bible time and exercise in the wee hours, and then he was out the door for work well before the kids woke up. In the evenings, he was often home just in time for a late a dinner. This meant the kids typically had about an hour of his time before they went to bed. I was g...

It seems that on Mondays, more than any other day of the week, my children need constant correction. And this on a day when I’m trying to get my house back in order from the same busy weekend, can often make for some explosions as my kids interrupt ...

Parenthood in the Local Church: Part 2, Family Worship

Blog_2.15.19_Family worship

I am so grateful that the Lord put me in a home where my dad regularly led us in family worship growing up. I know that this is not the norm for most people today. The family is being more and more torn apart. Not only in terms of redefining what the family is, but also in terms of the growing demands for our time, and the endless onslaught of entertainment that seem to cr...

Parenthood in the Local Church: Part 1, The Gospel

Blog_2.1.19_What_is_the_gospel_and_how_teach

My husband makes fun of me because I hate instruction manuals. “Just let me figure it out; I learn better that way!” I insist. Besides the fact I may ruin (have ruined?) a project before I even begin, he tells me that I miss out on so much by not reading the manual and thus not understanding the maker’s intentions for and capabilities of a device....

Parenthood in the Local Church

Blog_1.25.19_Parenthood_in_the_Local_Church

When my husband and I first came to understand Reformed Theology, we were in what I call our “Little Years.” My oldest son was a year old, I was pregnant with our second, and a couple years later I would have our third. I’m grateful for God’s timing in this, because as my husband and I were growing in our theology and knowledge of God, our children were too little ...
