I missed Father’s Day, but here’s a cute song based on a Bible verse to all the kids out there:

Rather, I fear that too many moms of our generation “major” on these controversial, blood-pressure-raising, attention-getting second- or third-tier issues, while missing the basics:
  • character development
  • obedience
  • the day-in-day-out business of RAISING ENJOYABLE, CHEERFUL, KIND CHILDREN who are growing in their understanding of God and the world He has made.

Moms who fall into this trap are focused on the side-issues but missing the major things.

This applies to dads as well.  How invested are we in raising the next generation of God worshipers instead of living for self?  We need to be very careful with the lives that are entrusted to us– one dad tried to shame his daughter and ended up losing her.  Obviously this is not the way to parent.

Godly Wife: How Do You Make Your Husband Feel?

February 20th, 2007 Viewed 7095 times, 1 so far today

It’s really interesting being a new dad– more so being a new mom, I can tell– but as any “new” parent knows (whether it’s your first or your fifth) that new “bundle of joy” brings a lot of attention. No, not the “changing diapers, up all night, and you have to feed me now” kind– that’s not what I was talking about. I mean, now people that may never have said “boo” to you before want to come up and comment on the baby and talk to you about everything to from if she smiles to who she looks most like.

This makes the parents feel proud– God did the work, we can take the credit. The question, Godly Wife, is how do you make your husband feel?
