Episode 58 - “Perfect Parents and Perfect Kids”

March 17th, 2019

Publish Date 3-18-19
There's no such thing as "Perfect Parenting" or "Perfect Children" it's just not a reality. So why then do we spend so much of our lives either striving for perfection or demanding perfection in others when the truth is we are all imperfect people? So many of us walk around with deep wounds and so much baggage feeling like we are failing at life because we are not measuring up to this ideal Mom, Dad, Partner, Son, Daughter, or Friend we might be measuring ourselves with. We need to somehow get our minds around the fact that this idea of perfection is not reality. There are no perfect people, no perfect parents, no perfect kids, and no perfect families. So maybe that's the bad news, but here's the good news you are enough. Did you hear that bit of "gospel"? God knows us and sees us just the way we are with all of our imperfections and flaws and still loves us with complete and everlasting love. An unconditional, transforming love that will absolutely bring wholeness and healing to our lives and to our parenting and marriage relationships.

Episode 52 - “8 Ways To Exasperate Your Kids”

February 3rd, 2019

Publish Date 2-4-19
​I was going through some old file folders and found some notes I jotted down from a radio show discussion panel on parenting. I honestly don't remember the name of the radio show or source but I thought they were important enough to write down at the time and rediscovering them today I think they might be worth sharing with other parents out there. 
Ephesians 6:4 encourages us with this thought: "Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord." Another translation says, "do not provoke your children to anger". Seems like a no brainer doesn't it ? And yet I know in my adventures in parenting I've been guilty of doing just that. I think that's why I must have taken the time to take these notes when I heard that radio interview. 
​Here's a link to read the blog post and review the "8 Ways to Exasperate Your Kids" and I hope you'll be encouraged by these thoughts in your parenting adventures.

Chip and Brittany are talking about how they're dealing with this time of year and exploring the idea of even embracing the natural rhythms of nature and life and how there may be something good happening in this time. If your family is beginning to show signs of Cabin Fever we hope this episode will be an encouragement and even give you some fun ideas for your family.

    Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
    and streams in the wasteland.
