The Power of Words in a Christian Home



"For we all stumble in many ways. And if anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle his whole body. If we put bits into the mouths of horses so that they obey us, we guide their whole bodies as well.  Look at the ships also: though they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are guided by a very small rudder wherever the will of the pilot directs. So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things.
How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire!"
~James 3:2-5




Today we are covering Chapter 5 of the book The Most Important Place on Earth: What a Christian Home Looks Like and How to Build One. If you would like to join us, there is still time and you can get your book HERE.






Words.

Our words.

They have the power of life and death. 

Yet sometimes we can be so careless with them and hurt the ones we love.


"Words are never blanks. They're actual bullets, and their impact is absolute. Every time."

They can build up, or at their very worst --tear down.

"Mouths are loaded guns, and the words they speak can be lethal." 


But in a Christian home, this should not be so.

"When words are spoken, we want the truth. When precision plays second fiddle to expedience or convenience or silly outbursts, you and I are the losers."

"Your home--your Christian home--must be different from this, It must be a place of true words. Accurate words. Your home has to be a place where people treat words as valuable and precious..and they must speak them precisely."

Our families are precious so we need to be careful not to mimic the world around us. It is so easy to replace respect with disrespect. Or encouraging words with hurtful words.

The way that we handle our words needs to be handled with the utmost care.

"Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones. 

~Proverbs 16:24




 Seek God today and ask Him where you can improve in this. It might be with your husband, or children, or extended family member but remember to be proactive and speak life into each person's life that you talk with!

A Prayer:

Dear God, please help me to control my tongue. Help me speak only words that bring You glory and build up those around me. Please forgive me when I don't and help me to be humble and apologize to those that I have hurt. Thank you for growing me in this area and continually showing me what needs to be changed in my life. Help all my actions to reflect You and Your love so that I can draw others closer to You. In Jesus's name I pray this, Amen.






If you are joining us for the first time, we are going through this book for the next few weeks and would love to have you join us! We will cover a chapter a week and in case you missed it be sure to watch the video and get the A-to Z  Bible Verse Printable to do with your children (we'll be doing it too). The book is still on sale so it is a great time to get it!

The 5 Important Graces of a Christian Home





"Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, 
as God in Christ forgave you." 

 -Ephesians 4:32


Today we are covering Chapter 4 of The Most Important Place on Earth. You can still join along with us and can find the book HERE. 

It has been fairly busy here on the homefront so this post  will be short and sweet one (I promise, the next one will be longer) but one that is important nonetheless.

The five graces in a Christian home are ones that we need to make sure we are putting into practice and they include:

1. FORGIVENESS -We need to teach our children to ask for forgiveness and we need to be humble enough to ask for it as well (after all, we are sinners and  we will mess up! We need to be the first examples of "I'm sorry, I was wrong. Will you forgive me?"  It might be hard a first, but after a while it get's easier. I promise!

2. REPENTANCE - Teaching our children to turn away from their sin after they get forgiveness is just as important as well and for us adults too!

3.GRATITUDE - I have been thinking about gratitude lately. In fact, the more I think of it, the more I am convinced I need to have more of it. Especially in the little things like--did I wake up today? Did I have water, food, clothing, electricity at my finger tips? Am I able to get up and around? Then God has a plan for me like Mr. Wolgemuth states and for all these things mentioned we need to be thankful. I think sometimes, we Americans have so much that we truly can take it all for granted and have an attitude that everything is owed to us when it is not. We need to thank the Lord for every little thing because it is indeed a gift. And we can teach our family gratefulness as well.

4.TENDERNESS - Tenderness is a purposeful act. Sometimes we forget and can act harshly towards one another.
"We've talked about repentance and forgiveness as examples of grace, but Paul also encouraged us to be "tenderhearted." Literally the word means "to smear with inward affection." Isn't that a great word picture?"

Tenderness is not something that comes natural to all of us.


"Tenderness is a quality you prepare before your're with your spouse and your children. Ahead of time, affirm the things you love about the people in your home. Preplay a gentle embrace and tender words for each one. How could I be so lucky? you think. Then when your actually with your family, the presentation matches what you've prepared. Even when circumstances call for toughness, your spirit is one of loving discipline and not one of anger or revenge. "





5. GENEROSITY - More is caught than taught when it comes to this. If the children are taught to be generous and share their toys, they will begin to learn a more generous spirit.  If we, as the parents, are examples in giving, our children will learn from our example. If a father is always giving at his church and a mother is opening the door to her home the children will see it. Especially it being modeled year after year.


A prayer:

Dear Lord, please help us to model these five graces of forgiveness, repentance, gratitude, tenderness, and generosity. We need help and can't do it on our own. Thank you for what you are doing in our hearts and our lives. Thank you for our family and help us to lead them to You and not hinder them from coming to You. In Jesus' Name, we pray. Amen. 



If you are joining us for the first time, we are going through this book for the next few weeks and would love to have you join us! We will cover a chapter a week and in case you missed it be sure to watch the video and get the A-to Z  Bible Verse Printable to do with your children (we'll be doing it too). The book is still on sale so it is a great time to get it!

The Busy Mom's Secret Weapon to Getting Her Family Healthy {& The Healthy Living Bundle 2016!}



Do you ever feel overwhelmed by healthy living?

It’s not that you don’t understand or agree with why it matters. You’re sold on the merits of eating whole foods, raising healthier kids, avoiding toxins and chemicals, getting fit, and using alternative remedies.

But sometimes it’s a whole lot easier to say than to actually do, right? Believe me, I’ve had the same struggles and questions as you. What on earth do you eat (and especially, what do you feed your kids)? How do you afford to buy healthier products? And where do you find the time to make and do all this stuff?

But when you have the right info and tools at your fingertips, it all comes together so much more easily.

You know what to cook for your family. You’re more confident in choosing natural alternatives. You find ways to save money without comprising on what’s important to you.
