{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.

{Week 9} Ministry of Motherhood Chapters 13 & 14 Commentary

This week we read the first two chapters (Ch 13 & 14) concerning the Gift of Training. In our video today, Courtney and I both share personal stories pertaining to those two chapters. Courtney discusses the need for Christian parenting vs. parenting that is focused on our children being socially acceptable. I LOVED what she had to say! One question to think about as you watch her portion is “Is my parenting focused on making my children ‘Good’ or is it focused on making my children more like Jesus?”

This week in our video I discuss a time when I was really hurt verbally and emotionally and how I had to choose to forgive and to train my mind not to replay the offense over and over again. Learning to take all our thoughts captive instead of allowing them free reign to continue to hurt us again and again is so important on our road to recovery and forgiveness. I loved what Sally said on page 153: “you can’t keep some bad thoughts from coming to your mind, but you can keep them from staying there.”

On Monday I asked “What some of your favorite training resources?” on our Facebook page. I was surprised and delighted with everyone’s response. Today I’d like to take the time and share some of those resources with you. Make sure to take a look at our Facebook page to see all the recommendations! Please note that these resources are listed in addition to the ultimate 1st resource….God’s Word.
