{Week 10} Ministry of Motherhood Chapters 15 & 16 Commentary

Today we are finishing week 10 and the Gift of Training. Only 2 more weeks left in our summer book club! I can’t believe how fast it has flown by! I pray you are enjoying it and learning as much as I am!

In today’s video Courtney and I discuss the importance of taking advantage of requests to pray with our children as well as seeing life’s tribulations as teaching opportunities to help our children in the midst of them learn to lean on Jesus and the wisdom He gives.

This week I have included a few more spiritual training resources that have been recommended to me to help assist and guide us as we point our children to Jesus. Please note all these resources are listed in addition to the ultimate 1st resource which is God’s Word.

Books

Please feel free to add to our list by commenting on our post today! We always love hearing from you!

On Monday we will start our last gift, the Gift of Service!

Also just a reminder about our giveaway this week, if you haven’t done so already make sure and enter to win the book Our 24 Family Ways written by Clay Clarkson! It’s a must have for every family!

Until next time…

Love God Greatly!

    We have been challenged to do more with our children than the devotional time that we do at bedtime. I think Clay Clarkson’s book would be wonderful to implement into our routine.

    Thank you Angela and Courtney for being real and sharing from your heart. Both of you are a constant source of encouragment.

    Blessings,
    Lesley

    I absolutely love My ABC Bible Verses, by Susan Hunt! I use this with my kids ages 1- 13. Every week we learn a new verse and write it for penmenship, this way when they are done they each have their own “book”.

    I am really excited to read Give them Grace; Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus by Elyse Fitzpatrick. I saw an interview on-line with her and it seems she promotes teaching our children’s hearts over the actions.

    http://www.amazon.com/Give-Them-Grace-Dazzling-Jesus/dp/1433520095

    Here are some of the Amazon reviews

    “So many Christian parents fall into the trap of asking the law to do in the hearts of their children what only grace can accomplish. Armed with threats, manipulation, and guilt, they attempt to create change that only the cross of Jesus Christ makes possible. It is so encouraging to read a parenting book that points parents to the grace of the cross and shows them how to be instruments of that grace in the lives of their children.”
    —Paul Tripp, President, Paul Tripp Ministries

    “In our human attempts to raise good and godly kids, we often forget that God extended his best grace to us. We are not full of grace on our own; we desperately need his grace. Elyse Fitzpatrick and her daughter, Jessica, provide a great tool to guide parents down the road of gracious parenting. I commend it to you.”
    —James MacDonald, Senior Pastor, Harvest Bible Chapel, Chicagoland Area; radio teacher, Walk in the Word

    “Elyse Fitzpatrick continues her never-ending quest to churn out grace-filled, Christ-centered, gospel-saturated books. And now she’s done it again with her daughter, Jessica, coauthoring this excellent parenting book! If you are a parent, get online and order your copy of Give Them Grace today!”
    —Deepak Reju, Pastor of Biblical Counseling and Families, Capitol Hill Baptist Church

    “The authors—mother and daughter—remind us that parenting is not only hard but also impossible. Yes, we need to nurture, teach, discipline, train, pray, and model, but we must not depend on our parenting skills to change the hearts of our children. Instead, they counsel parents to ‘rely on the faithfulness of Jesus, our great high priest, to change their hearts.’ Grace for both parents and children flows through the pages of this book; I only wish I had read it at the beginning of my parenting instead of the end.”
    —Rose Marie Miller, missionary; speaker; author, From Fear to Freedom

    “This is not just a book on parenting; this is deep training in the gospel. Elyse Fitzpatrick shows parents how to model themselves after the heavenly Father, who changed his children not by wrath and the law but by grace. A lot of books talk about gospel-centeredness in theory; this book shows you how to apply it to one of life’s most important relationships.”
    —J. D. Greear, Senior Pastor, The Summit Church, Durham, North Carolina
