One of my personal missions in life as a Parent is to ask God how to Glue Kids to Him so that they have a better chance of sticking and to share with others what I learn along the way as a Parent Coach. Parenting is much easier when God is in our children and teens’ hearts and He can teach them as He has promised so they can live a more peaceful life.
Sticking of course means staying connected to Him in their lives to fulfill the role He created for them and have a more successful life
Parenting can be hard work. We parents often struggle to balance our relationships with our children. It’s important though to remember it is OK to lovingly discipline children. They will thank you later!
If you get to know me personally, you will notice I love art. Particularly paintings & drawings. Sculptures are fascinating to me but photography rocks. Matisse was the best of the classical world but I am enjoying this posted artwork from the Iris Global website. I was fishing for information on the Harvest School that my son is attending this summer as any snooping parent would for more details….and found an art treasure.
Praying Momma; an excellent watercolor that says it all. You can see her intense connection with God as she prays to Him for her son. Wow!
The Iris Fine Arts page on the Iris Global Website https://www.irisglobal.org/multimedia/fine-arts#4 will lead you to other gorgeous paintings as well.
Many of our children today are hurting…
some are secretly addicted to explicit and harmful content,
are addicted to gaming,
are victims of cyber bullying,
or worse – are part of the estimated 50,000 abductions per year…
We as parents and educators need to equip them and ourselves to not only protect them but also train their hearts and minds to help them stay on track.
It is time to work together to rescue children and youth who are ensnared by the internet and struggling… they desperately want to return to the path of peace.
