When Your Child Tells You He Wants To Be In Control Of His Life

When he asked the question, I started to chuckle. Until I felt the Lord gently tap my arm. “You ask me this too. It just sounds different.”

A generation screened to death

A wicked scheme is being played against your kids. Its goal is to addict them and to make you blind to what is happening. When we know something, we can’t un-know it. It’s time as parents we stop allowing our kids to be the victims of a generation screened to death.

Does God even hear my prayers? Will this ever happen?

It’s tempting to give up on our prayers. Or to believe God doesn’t care or even hear us. I found a key scripture that encouraged me to never give up on my prayers. Join me for today’s full post.

Scrolling through life – Are we living distracted by screens or focused on life?

How often do I reach for my phone out of boredom, looking for that next hit of entertainment or distraction?

How often do I reach for my phone for the high of escape?

When I don’t feel like listening to one more complaint or argument, I pick it up.

We desire intentional living, but you wouldn’t know from our habits. So we have a choice to make. Will we choose to live life on purpose? Or will we scroll through life instead, missing out on what we may never know we are missing?

Join me for a post that I hope challenges you as it has me to re-evaluate my screen habits.

When time management means learning to become less productive

Time is a gift not a dictator.

I’m a doer, a worker. I love efficiency and productivity. I thrive on accomplishing tasks and seeing my tangible, physical progress. The problem is I work better than I rest. The second problem is that I’m rarely satisfied that my work is complete. I set high bars and expectations and can always “do more”. But for a human being, that is chasing something with no finish line in sight.

Perfection isn’t reality. At some point I must choose ‘good enough’ and be satisfied.

It’s time for time to be handled with care. Join me for the rest of today’s post.

The possible missing link connecting your desire to your reality

Do you ever find you have desires that seem slow to become a reality if they ever do? Enough experiences like that can stop us from continuing to try. Fears of failure begin to take root even. I’ve found in my life there’s something else to discover. A missing piece to the puzzle connecting the desires I have with the reality I experience. If I want different results, maybe it’s time to take different steps? Join me for today’s post.
