ABYG: Making Time to Listen

Have you subscribed to the new feed yet? Search And, Before You Go wherever you listen to podcasts.

In this episode, I’m joined by my friend Laura Solis. I thought it was time to talk to a mom of girls and Laura has three so it was a perfect fit! As a bonus, her middle daughter Ruby joined us to share a college student’s perspective on this transitional phase of life.

Join me on social media or in the comments on the website. I want to hear from you. How are you coping in this season? What’s the Lord teaching you?

ABYG: Know, Grow, Slow

Well, the boys are much older now. We’ve traded in our Children’s Bibles for iPhone Bible apps. The oldest has left the nest and is off on his own at college. We’re in a new phase of parenting. Now, we are now launching young adults into the world. What a weighty responsibility! While we are still teaching our kids the Bible, we realize our daily time with them is rapidly coming to an end. And, before they go, there are some things we want them to know, some ways we feel they need to grow and we are praying the time goes by slow(ly) because there are places we still want to go. So, I’m launching a new site and a new podcast with that focus in mind. If you’ve been with us since the beginning, then your kids are in a similar stage and you probably feel the same as we do.  If you’re still raising littles, we don’t mind if you listen in – because one day – sooner than you realize, you’ll be at this stage too. Listen to episode 1 and let me know what your big 3 are for your child.

Moving From Milk to Meat

Wow, has it really been that long? When I started this blog, my kids were 8, 6 and 3. Now they are 11, 9, and 6. Time sure does fly by!

I haven’t really blogged here much because I didn’t think anyone was reading this page. But for some reason, I’ve been constantly drawn back to this blog over the years and I’ve decided to give the TKTB blog another go.

Since I’ve been away for a while, I suppose a bit of an update is in order. Honestly, not much has changed in the last 3 years. We (my husband and I) still love God, each other, and our kids. Our goal to impart Biblical knowledge in our kids lives has not changed. I will admit that as my older kids outgrew their children’s Bibles I have been very lax on dedicating specific time that is our Family Devotion Time.

But of course with the beginning of a new year comes renewed determination. Which has partly brought me back to this blog.

I love being able to go back and read this chronicle of my life and I really don’t want to leave the details of this next phase out!

In one of my resent Bible studies we were reading the book of Hebrews. The specific passage that stood out to me was Hebrews 5:12

In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!

What a strong reprimand for many Christians today. After reading and studying our Bibles for years, we are still just reviewing and consuming the “elementary truths of God’s word all over again.”

This passage was so convicting for me in regards to my Biblical instruction with my children. I have honestly ONLY been actively teaching them the “elementary truths”. And I STRONGLY feel God calling me to move them from Milk to Meat!

My oldest is 11.  He know, believes and confesses that Jesus is the son of the True and Living God and that He died to reconcile all who believe back to the Father. He understands the Trinity and believes in the Holy Spirit.

But its time to move from belief to faith in action. Am I teaching him to yield to the Holy Spirit? Am I teaching how to treat his body as the temple of God? Am I showing him through my actions and instruction that God desires our complete and total submission to His will so that we may enjoy abundant life?

Just typing those words makes me see and feel the weight of what God has called me to do as a parent.

I hope to chronicle our journey here on this blog.

Are you moving your children from Milk to Meat? Please share with me in the comments.

A New Year – A Renewed Determination

Wow! Another year has come and gone. I can’t believe how quickly time is passing.

We have one major goal for our family in 2009. 

Consistent Family Devotion

We want to have a consistent time of Bible Study in our home with our children. Our older boys are pretty well versed in the stories in their children’s Bibles as we’ve been reading from them for several years now. So in 2009 my husband will be leading a time of devotion for our entire family (that means we will be including the 3-year-old, much prayer will be needed).

We are going to move beyond Bible stories and talk more about Christian Beliefs, Christian Character and Christian Disciplines.

I’ll share the lessons here for those who are interested.

Our biggest challenge is picking a day/time for the devotions. Since my husband is a firefighter, he’s not home everyday and his scheduled days fluctuate every week. Please pray that we do not allow scheduling problems to stop us or quench our fire!

Do you have a goal of implementing and becoming more consistent with your family’s devotion in 2009? Please click on the comments and share your thought on what will work best for your family – as well as the challenges you may face in reaching this goal. I’d love to join you in prayer.

It’s Thanksgiving….GEEZ!

We went to my sister’s house tonight for a little pre-Thanksgiving gathering and when we arrived there, guess what they were preparing to do???

They were putting up their Christmas tree!!!

WHAT!

Who are these people (if it’s you, I’m so sorry!) who put up their Christmas tree before Thanksgiving. One at a time people! I can’t work this fast.

Before we’ve had any turkey and gone around the table to say what we are thankful for, many of you are already stuffing Christmas stockings!

My kids asked on the way home if we were going to put up our tree tonight and I said “NOOOO!!!! Not going to happen!” I’ve got to take the holiday season one day at a time – of no trees shall trim before their time.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING YALL!

Have I Become A Prude?

I took my sons to see High School Musical 3 last night and we had a blast! I loved the singing and the dancing. I found myself clapping after every musical selection.

I did have one complaint. I think some of Gabriella’s dresses and skirts were too short. When she’d spin and dance they would come dangerously close to showing too much. In fact, one time Taylor did show to much in my opinion on one of her dance moves.

Most of the kids who love HSM are 10 and under. Knee length skirts would have been more appropriate right? Which makes me ask myself “Have I become a prude?”

Really, I enjoyed the movie. I would have been happier with longer skirts, less closeness between Troy and Gabriella, lose the passionate kiss, and don’t have Troy take off his shirt and we would have a true Disney movie! Like the ones I watched when I was under 10…
