HOME is here!

It’s here and it’s out!

I’m so excited to announce the new family devotional written by myself and my husband, Jared.

Home Family Devotional is a 6-week devotional written in such a way to help teach children about spiritual disciplines that will nurture their spiritual growth.

Because, let’s be honest, this parenting gig is no joke. Our children are growing up in a world where untruths are accepted as truth and immorality is celebrated. 

Proverbs 14:12 says, “There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.”

As parents, we have been given a divine calling to speak truth and life into the lives of our children. We are their guides in ways that don’t just appear right, but are right.  That divine calling isn’t easy.

Together, Jared & I have had the privilege of ministering to students and parents as well as raising some crazy kiddos ourselves.  Home Family Devotional was born out of a shared passion to equip and resource parents to disciple their kids.

One of my favorite lines is “Parenting isn’t for sissies.” Well, neither is discipling your children. It is an investment and a most worthwhile one.  We would be so honored to join in your journey with the Home Family Devotional.

The Best Advice

The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice–Proverbs 12:15

This morning we sat around the breakfast table reading our daily family devotions when we came upon this verse.

The words, “…the wise listen to advice” rang in my ears.  How many times do we spurn advice when we simply want to take our own way?

The devotional we were using posed the question, “What’s the best advice you have ever received?’

The kids struggled with an answer so Jared & I thought about it and came up with similar answers.

We both agreed the best advice we’d ever been given was about choosing carefully who we married.  Kati Ann rolled her eyes in disgust. (this is the reality of our family devotional time)

I thought back to more than 20 years ago receiving that advice & how I know and have experience so many things that have have confirmed the validity of that advice.

Not all advice is worthwhile but we are wise to listen and not assume we automatically know or have the right answers.

What about you?  What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
