How to Foster Sibling Relationships (Even If Your Family Isn’t Perfect)
Do you feel like your kids are always fighting? I know it seems like you’re the only one, but every single parent goes through this. It’s impossible to put two people in the same place without at least occasional friction, but that doesn’t mean you must give in to the world’s combative view on siblings. God has a beautiful plan for this treasured relationship, and fostering it isn’t quite as difficult as you might think.

Parenting on Purpose
Reaching the Heart of Your Child
Based on Ginger’s best-selling book, Don’t Make Me Count to Three! There is far more to parenting than getting children to “act” right. We have to get them to “think” right and to be motivated out of a love of virtue rather than a fear of punishment. Ginger equips parents to reach past the outward behavior of their children and address the issues of the heart. Move beyond the frustrations of not knowing how to handle issues of disobedience and into a confident approach to raising your children.

40 Ways to Be Present in Your Child's Day
In the midst of a busy day it's easy for mamas to think of our children as “tasks” rather than as “hearts” we need to connect with. We struggle with putting our kids before our to-do lists and school schedules. After all, we can mark things off our to-do lists. Kids are never "done." It hurts my heart to realize what my kids see and experience on some days: a busy, distracted mom. Tricia Goyer shares how to be present in your child's day.

Homeschooling life isn’t always an aesthetically pleasing photo spread. Sometimes it’s messy. Sometimes we struggle. Often we struggle in silence, afraid to admit our sin, our mishaps, our battles. It’s time for us to stop living behind a filter and start walking as true sisters in Christ. Because when we share our true struggles, we bring the darkness into Light and the best filter is a life lived in the Light of Jesus!

The Disciple-Making Mom!
Being a Mom is about so much more than feeding, dressing, and driving our kids to play-dates. With only a few short years to impart important spiritual truths to our children, every day becomes an important opportunity for teaching, training, and modeling Christlikeness. A Discipling Mom conference will give mothers the tools they need to disciple their children in the important areas of prayer, service, Bible study, scripture memorization, and true fellowship. Moms will walk away encouraged.

Responding Biblically to Fear, Worry, and Anxiety
Most of us disguise worry with different terms like, “concerned,” “troubled,” or “bothered.” Worry saps our energy, drains our joy, destroys evangelism, and even aggravates many physical ailments.The Bible is clear that worry is sinful, idolatrous, and a sign of unbelief, and that fear is wrong when it is allowed to motivate thinking and behavior that is unbiblical. You will discover the biblical solutions to worry, the keys to overcoming fear, and how to disciple others with the same truths.

American’s Greatest Sin—It’s Not What You Think
What is our nation’s greatest sin? Is it the horror of abortion, adultery, homosexuality, pornography, fornication, or blasphemy? You may be surprised that it’s none of these things. There is one sin that most Christians could hardly identify—let alone define, and it is the catalyst for all these sins...and it’s not unbelief.

If we homeschool simply to achieve high academic marks, we are squandering the opportunity to influence our children for Christ. Character healthy leaders are those children who have learned to elevate virtues above feelings. If we spend our homeschooling hours simply on academics and activities, we may win the praise of man, but we risk losing the hearts of our children.
