Blueprints on how to build a home to completion through, knowledge, understanding amd wisdom.

Attached to the source in order to yield good fruit.

How can we find the one to partner with in building a home on firm foundation? Although it may be important, it is not enough to place your faith on the ability to provide. Despite what society tells us it may be shallow to think all you need is provision when this can be lost in an instant. Building a family that last is based on so much more in pursuit of becoming one with the body of Christ.

Here a few scriptures without added words for you to receive what’s necessary for your home. This series will have 4 scripture at a time, feel free to seek more information by looking up each of them and reading the scripture surrounding each.

“Let your wife be a fountain of blessing for you. Rejoice in the wife of your youth.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭5:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬
https://www.bible.com/116/pro.5.18.nlt

“Didn’t the Lord make you one with your wife? In body and spirit you are his. And what does he want? Godly children from your union. So guard your heart; remain loyal to the wife of your youth.”
‭‭Malachi‬ ‭2:15‬ ‭NLT‬‬
https://www.bible.com/116/mal.2.15.nlt

“Don’t let the excitement of youth cause you to forget your Creator. Honor him in your youth before you grow old and say, “Life is not pleasant anymore.””
‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭12:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬
https://www.bible.com/116/ecc.12.1.nlt

“May he restore your youth and care for you in your old age. For he is the son of your daughter-in-law who loves you and has been better to you than seven sons!””
‭‭Ruth‬ ‭4:15‬ ‭NLT‬‬
https://www.bible.com/116/rut.4.15.nlt

Hopefully these words are a blessing to those who are called to build a family, those seeking what to look for in a partner, those who need direction in leading their home to be on firm foundation , and for those who want to give life to their home arms and not use the folly words that plant the seed of division in their home. Speak words of life in your home.

Direction – our loving kids. As much as they may not listen to individual request at times, they want to be instructed on what is expected. This can be delivered through instructions but better through demonstration. Easy to understand bullet point directions should be helpful, make sure they can read it back to you and that you’re available for questions.

Plan – starting without a plan for some children is like not planning to start, moreover finish. Schedule their day down to the hour and include breaks. Use Google/Amazon timers, alarms, IOS and Android screen time locks and alerts to manage distractions. This is one of the more critical steps especially when transaction the space where they recline into a plane of productivity. Set your aim for them at 4hrs of productivity.

Acknowledge – pay close attention for the cry for attention. It can be an opportunity for children to consistently give their best because they know you care. Celebrate accomplishments and show that you are pleased with the process at times along the way.

Synchronize – keep the bulk of their schedules synchronized with each other and yours if possible. Teens with their younger siblings for opportunity to support and to allow for group projects and lunch together.

Breaks – Can be scheduled for approximately 2 hour segments. Try to avoid breaks longer that this because it may be hard to develop an effective routine/rhythm. Outside time recommended.

Note: Suggested activities – Math, Science concepts, Reading, Typing, Coding, Art, Building projects and others you believe they could manage.

Gather

Gather your family and teach them the truth even when it’s uncomfortable. Family devotion and time together to know our Father’s word are critically important. It is essential for the devolpment of our children as well as ours. So hold your family close to introduce, expose, guide, demonstrate Jesus to your family so our children can witness first hand how much we as parents depend on our Heavenly Father.

Is it that the more we avoid the truth, we believe everything else?

Having been a husband and parent for some time now, I know that I am a mere steward for my family and that I surrender it all to Him.

Are you looking for a positive change in your family?

Attempting to answer the questions of a child, with love.

We are all children when attempting to navigate complex questions in our world.

My condolences for all who have lost and experience pain through our current challenges.

In an attempt to formulate an answer to the image above:

Because the hardest thing to do is to change a persons mind. You have to convince and possibly demonstrate why they should leave that ism (system/construct) and enter/forge a new one based in truth which deals in value. How do you make this a value to another.

And all of this has to be done in love.

Being Real makes a person stand their ground which have lead to wars. They then never really accept it in their hearts.
It’s not something you can force on a person.

Why or how does a person take a position such as this?

Because as free beings we get to choose. Those choices can be corrupted by the world and some environments we find ourselves. The ugliness that stems from that is dark. The only thing to extinguishes darkness is light 💡.


Jesus is, and is the only one who has explained my heart and yours. It’s the only way to avoid hate that is part of the thing that corrupts a heart. We are unable to mange hate. History has proven that…….

Patterns of expression and understanding

Kids show patterns of behavior that you can learn from similar to adults. Here are a few to look out for..

  • Wanting more – when a child is asking for more, it’s in your best interest to do a needs assessment. The current condition can be masked by a desired condition. Remember that they can be expert negotiators. Excess can be challenging to withdraw once introduced. Giving has greater than consuming, gathers and storing.
  • Correction – directly tied to discipline is must for all children and teens. The morals and values you hold and teach within the home as well as demonstrate are essential for the success of the application. These should be tested via the Word (biblical) and nothing else if you want to maintain consistency. Kid will notice when you pivot y what you feel is right. It can be extremely confusing to children.
  • Sleep as an individual category plays a crucial role in their growth. Keeping a routine in all seasons will reap great rewards for you. Avoid using this as a treat because they tend to want to earn it. This should be held as a standard with every effort. Children and teens psychological and physiological well being can be Directly traced to things like stress, anxiety, performance, irritably and many others including overall health. Speak with their teachers and other care givers regarding their behavior and performance with specific questions. You will have to all the teacher to speak freely without generalizing their overall well-being.
  • Sharing and turn taking. This can be best address through the second bullet. Practicing and application of turn taking are critical to friendship and integration, so it’s important that it’s applied among family and siblings. Apply the moral and value principles directly to the games or home activities in order for them to be locked together in memory with the action. (Kindness, courtesy, gentleness, joy and appreciation for the company to play and the activity itself.
  • Areas of avoidance – look for verbal avoidance, argumentative behavior and negotiations for any activity when it’s even mentioned. Watch for clinging or brushing up against or touching parents and caregiver in the time of the activity. Head bowing, lack of eye contact, mumbling, silence, defiance, tears, shaking and several other behavioral cues can be seen in teens into young adults.
  • Lack of Joy and zeal – Be very observant to your children when you see a drastic change in behavior that leads to long periods of neutral to sad behavior regardless of age. Kids are typically filled with joy and can generate it instantaneously; when this is not present or consistently not present, it can be due to several factors. Here are some possible scenarios: drastic change to their environment, change in relationships, changes in close foundational relationships with or among family.

This list is not comprehensive but only a few patterns that we should be on the vigilant look out for in our kids and their friends. (Yes, observe the behaviors of their friends as often as you have the chance.)

Please seek guidance from your faith based, community circles and professional help if any of these and others are associated with the precious children in your circle. These causes and situations associated can be disturbing to many and should be addressed. I hope this severs as a guide on your journey.

Children and families in service to others.

Can we as parents and families demonstrate work in service to others?

Some ways that may help are:

  • Keeping regulars family meetings discussing service and plans to serve.
  • Volunteer routinely in your community or place of worship even if they can only be present for now as little ones.
  • Refrain from speaking ill about others in your home.
  • Discussing challenges as they appear at school.
  • Make every efforts to put situations and responses through the word of God so they know what’s right and expected.
  • Talk to them about things that hurt them to witness and what solutions could possibly make a difference.
  • Demonstrate eye contact, handshakes and how to love friend sand people encountered.
  • Sign up for group volunteering opportunities to participate as a family.
  • When money is received from gifts or earnings, have them put away a portion for charitable work.
  • Practice writing thank you cards or creating things they made with their hands as a way of saying thanks for gifts received.
  • Have them help around the home even if it’s putting the placemats on the dinner table for all.

These are only a few things but these and many others are ways we can demonstrate giving. It appears to be best implemented early and often as a way of life.

Showing gratitude for small wins

Kids need to know what they do matters. They at times have similar insecurities adults face. A kind word, appreciation, simple thank you can go a long way.

Some children can have difficulty holding a series of task as they learn to juggle. We need to be mindful of this and open to conversations about what they do. Expressing gratitude for the completed task seems to be as valuable as thanking them along the road of progress. Lifting their spirits after a successful task, day or week can sometime be the rocket fuel needed. And from my experience the specific attention can have the biggest impact coming from specific person. Sometime it can be a Mom or Dad, a sibling, a friend, a teacher or from anyone they honor. Let’s look for an opportunity to celebrate our young one with love .

How did you celebrate 🎊 a first step, a first word, a first day of school. Let’s find our joy and watch them run/sprint to the goals set forth that can be passed to another like a baton.

Kidstrive to be and encouraged on the right path.

What if your kid said their tummy hurts?

When is there a real problem? When a child says again and again they have a headache, stomach cramps, or simply panicking uncontrollably.

Some of these can start from the avoidance of thing or activity. Can a child experience trauma if forced to do something they are verbally expressing disdain? The answer is somewhere along the lines that it depends. Stress can be an emotional response from simple dislike to something rooted in fear. Our interaction with the things we encounter is securely tied to our response to it.

We have to seek help and be on the look out for stress moving to greater physical responses.

Guard their senses from the wickedness in the world until they are mature enough. Sometimes what our eyes see and hear can amplify the effect of a thing based on how we imagine it. Preparing them is rooted in One Source.
