Holy Cow! Just yesterday my little boy ran to me crying “Mommy, Mommy do you hear the train!” His blonde loose curly hair bobbed up and down as he jumped with excitement.
I say it all the time. I loved that boy more than I thought possible the day he arrived. That boy in a Good Mood is sunshine walking!
Why should turning 13 change that?
What the World Says About Teens
Stupid, dumb, foolish, brainless, reckless, defiant, unworthy–ugh, why would we label our precious babies like that!!
Want to take a stand against the world telling our teens who they are? Let’s explore together who God says these precious children are to him.
Are You Ready to Take a Step of Courage?
Take the “counter will” of your teen and see it as God’s gift in your household. Stop rolling your eyes at me! This will be good!
Love is all we need–poop! Love and to grow up and act like the mature adult parent all teens desire in their lives-and aspire to be one day.
That’s right! Instead of telling your teen to be responsible, I am saying that to you and me. More than ever your teen needs you to act right. Dare I say righteous–like Joseph was righteous when he followed God into marrying a pregnant virgin based on a dream.
Whose with me? Quit staring off into space and look at me. This is your choice.
Why choose to be this hard parent, or this parent soft
When you can be this parent–the righteous one.
Ready to Take the Challenge
I am speaking to you adult to adult. Do you have what it takes to stop bearing down on your teen. Stop asking who does he think he is and instead ask who do you think you are?
Like Jesus says let’s not think about fixing “them” until we get right with Him! Who are you today 13 years after God gave you this precious gift of a child?
Think you are strong enough to pray for your teen for 21 days. Twenty-one days to focus on the Lord’s plan for your relationship with your son or daughter?
Want to catch my drift a little more before you commit?
Not for Sissy Parents
No, I didn’ just call you a sissy. That would be name calling and adults don’t do that right? I said right–did you hear me? Now, look at me. I am speaking directly to you.
Do you really have the strength to step into this?
Trust me it will be worth it.
