Loving union

When a man and woman unite and the two becomes one in the union. Love brings about great miracles spoke into existence since the beginning and all the words spoken created yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Truth – Children are a blessing and when we unite in union, we are to come into agreement to the purposes our Heavenly Father has for His children.

“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.””
‭‭John‬ ‭14:6-7‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Law – Children are seeking direction in the way they should go. We are are taught to pass the laws from our Heavenly Father to our children so they can pass it to their children. In his commandments instructions are given to our children, let’s point them towards it and don’t abandon it. We must draw near so so we can demonstrate for our children.

Culture – It’s the atmosphere and environment that our children are subjected too. The invitation of peace and truth has been given to us. Parents, please be aware of the cultural messages that come at our children from all sides. Oneness is a must for our children anything else is too costly.

The events in the news has shown us the power of an atmosphere. My condolences for those who lost their lives. Let us teach our children the truth because there is only one. We are only made in one image.

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.

Working with kids at home. (Tips)

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…….

Kidstrive to move out of negative constructs and into the Kingdom.

Sterring

Who steered you? What were your influences? Whose opinion is valid and relevant?

Steering ourselves can be difficult, so imagine if your child is looking to you to learn how to drive a car or tie a bow tie, or ease/avoid the pain of loosing a friend. My thought is that children are constantly looking and actively seeking direction but some of the places they get the answers are not expected. When teaching a teen to drive there are several rules you may lay out for them based on your own experience and tied into the laws that govern your area. To a child the list of things may seem large and endless but the teacher may list them off easily as the child throws question after question. Well, until the child ask some of the more complex question like how to parallel park, or how to do a three point turn with cars on both sides of the street. As the teacher you may have to go take a peep at the rule book / driving instruction manual online.

Steering our youth takes a consistent instruction manual because responding based on what you believe to be right can go devastatingly wrong given the scenario. Placing them in front of experts, the best experts money can buy may help in some challenges, but can be pointless if the child’s values does not line up with the instructor. What if letting them know that you’re there for them is not enough. We have only one true instructor and one rule book that can correct, and one comforter to steer us through the most challenging battles. When our strength, our finances, our security are seemingly not enough for that new situation that seems to have blindsided our homes. Jesus is our Lord, peace and truth. The bible filled and overflowing with instructions for all that we encounter should be our source. I, one dad, one husband, one brother, one uncle, one son, one friend, one citizen, one worker, am never enough on my own. The battles I have encountered and the testimony I have are surely not of strength.

I remember being present in the room as my wife gave birth to our first child, and how helpless one feels when we know that we cannot protect this little one from all the things the world can throw. Surrendering the gift back to the one who gave it is all I knew. This was not easy by any means, it came through countless hours of thought in the deepest places of my mind like so many other men do. Dads draw to silence, Dads weep on the inside rarely outwardly, Dads work with their hands and minds, summing the will to provide, secure and protect. At times, feeling like a boy, feeling of inadequacy, feeling of doubt while the world keeps going. How can I steer anyone in this state. My life and the lives of my family, my love, my future and the future of my family all rest in Him. All Praise and Glory and Honor to my Heavenly Father who it all belongs to. Steer me towards your will.

Kidstrive to be steered in the right direction.

Awaiting instruction

Kids can sometimes seem disinterested and not amazed or engaged in getting instruction. It’s more likely they want to be valued for what they do and it to be measured as significant and beneficial. This can be seen when they have something they want to show the people most important to them like a parent, family, teacher or friends.

The interest level of the audience can be crucial when it’s time for a new skill to be demonstrated, so eyes up and dial in!

These moments have significant value and can serve as critical information in identifying passions and gifts. Valuing things they value almost has the ability to serve as equity to cash in when teaching them a complex thing or asking a large task of them.

Getting to know your child and fostering a bond through teaching a new skill can be rewarding for both.

Learning as your child learns by teaching at home away from school?

Take a deep breath, we can do it parents.

One or two of you may have attempted to teach your child at home, probably with mixed experiences. Here a few sites that can aid in their learning.

PhET labs – a good place to start for science and math. https://phet.colorado.edu This may go along well with your existing understanding of a topic where you and your child can seek the answer using a text book, Wikipedia or other resources.

Mathgames https://teks.mathgames.com is a site and app for elementary or middle schoolers to get quick feedback as to whether they have mastered a concept with 10 questions for practice. (education standards supported) Works well with khanacademy. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/khan-academy/id469863705

Science journal by Google is a great way to explore your environment with your kid using digital devices like Apple or Android products. It uses the tech built into the devices like the accelerometer, compass, collect light measurements from various colors, recoding sound frequency and intensity along with many others. This works well for all ages with some sort of support text to explain and connect the concepts. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/science-journal-by-google/id1251205555

Hopefully these sites and applications are a fun place to start. An effective strategy is to focus on teaching objectives and concepts tied to thier current knowledge and understanding. A general sense of intrigue lead by you may help bring out their sense of wonder. Learning together even at varying levels may have some benefits as well.

Let’s use these and other opportunities to gain insight on what direction to point our kids based on their interest and aptitude.

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.

I would love to hear your suggestions on what things you and your family have done.

Hold her close with a firm bow, pressed against your cheek. (Repost, reminder to the Dad)

Develop this arrow with the finest care so when you shoot it off it flys far, straight and with a graceful silence to hit the mark of the bulls eye.

  • Hold her close while you give her a bath.
  • Hold her close while feeding her.
  • Speak to her before she understands.
  • Speak into the dreams that you have for her life so it may be multiplied.
  • Hug her daily even when hugs aren’t cool.
  • Hug her even when she forgets.
  • Let her lay on you still like days of old.
  • Let her have one more “piggie back ride.”
  • Hold her mother long enough so she can see.
  • Kiss her so that she can hear the affection.
  • The love from her Dad should be her first love that demonstrates how she should be treated, unmatched.
  • Tell her that she is more beautiful than words can say then find some that accurately conveys what’s in your heart.
  • Look into her eyes so she won’t forget.
  • Arrive early so she sees you in the stands.
  • Make her room like a princess’s.
  • Demonstrate the importance of vows and commitment as noted in scripture.
  • Teach about the strength of a union that no one can divide, and the power of two or more that agree if she chooses to have a family of her own or if she walks alone.
  • Give her a belief that she can do all things and her family will be there to catch her if she falls.
  • Spare no expense for her to have understanding.
  • Arrive home so she can hold you with the warmest of hugs, yet feel the strength of your arms as you lift her.

  • Be thankful her for her strength and comfort her when she is weak.
  • Share with her skills you have learned on your journey.

Our daughter need to have no doubt what a father should be. There are too many books in the library to learn from but very few good ones. Teach how to wait until good books are published by being near to a good one on a mission.

Children hear our voices in their heads and uses that voice as a guiding force as they grow, be conscious and of a sober mind when you speak words into their lives.

Giving her your all has little to do with how much things you can provide with a monetary value. Focus on the things that last a lifetime and even more so on things that have value in eternity that no man can value or devalue like faith, peace and the ability find it in any circumstance.

Demonstrate unconditional love, understanding and how to seek it, kindness, goodness, joy, charity for others and a heart for others, how to give a handshake and make eye contact when necessary, how to stand alone or how to stand with a partner in a union in the eyes of God, forgiveness, enduring long suffering with purpose and goals in view. Watching her grow is a blessing and her success is something to witness with all glory to our Heavenly Father.

Kidstrive to make the choices that are fulfilling and last a lifetime.

#If she is to walk with any man, make sure he is a greater man than you, one who is willing to die for her, willing to provide for her if she ever can’t, treat her like a queen as you treat her as your princess. How great are you? Rise to the challenge and make sure the man that approaches with the thought is humbled and possesses only one fear.
