Do I Dare Talk About This??

Do I dare talk about this????

Well, lets get real and talk about when your child is strong willed and discipline, I know this is a touchy subject but thought I would share my view of it. Speaking from experience I know what its like to lose your mind as a parent when your child is defiant and just refuses to obey. My middle daughter was quiet a character as a toddler and young child, but as a preteen she is growing into a very lovely young lady. She has tried my patience many times and there were times I felt as though I just disciplined her all day long. She was a very stubborn toddler and child but because I am a christian I believe what the word of God says. I would rather give a quick swift spank and be done with the correction then to drag it out by forcing her to sit in time out all day long.

''Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.''
                                                      Proverbs 13:24

The word of God tells us that we need to as parents discipline  our children.If you believe the Bible then you know that we are to listen to Gods word and follow his instructions.  I have read many parenting books and have tried other avenues of discipline such as taking away toys, grounding, timeouts etc. I  have seen no effects on my children what so ever. They just get right back up and do the same thing they were doing all over again. In my own journey of raising  children I believe  biblical discipline ,early on is most effective. My children are now 8,12 and 15 and are very well behaved. Now, that doesn't mean they don't get disciplined any more. They still do get disciplined but it is less frequent now and in other forms due to there ages,I mean lets get real I can't spank my 15 yr old son who is bigger than me LOL!!!! When they act up they know they are not only disobeying us but they are disobeying God by not honoring and respecting us. The word of God also says that... 
"Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child, but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him."     Proverbs 22:15  

I firmly believe that spanking children ( NOT BEATING) is one of the ways we need to discipline our children to ensure a healthy respect for parents, authority and GOD. I also know that when children have boundaries and structure they are more happy and content with their days. I hope this sheds some light and what the Lord has instructed us as parents to do concerning our children. Keep in mind this is my own personal view and how I raise my children so no hate comments. We all have freedom of speech and this is my place on the web to speak freely as I see fit. I hope to encourage christian parents to follow the will of the Lord in raising strong , respectful, christian children. If you have doubts about anything concerning your children and how you handle things take it to the Lord and read his word because it is our instruction manual not only for raising kids but living life in general. God Bless!!!!

Hello everyone!

Today I just wanted to give a short little explanation about my curriculum books that I have created for my children. First of all, I created them specifically for my daughter that learns differently from the norm. She is a right-brained thinker and a very artistic and critical thinker. My daughter did not like the standard read and answer questions as most curriculum books are laid out this way. So I had to get creative. I realized she learned best when she was able to choose a subject that interested her, and the information stuck in her head! I was so thrilled! So I scoured the internet trying to find a curriculum that would do just what she needed. I did not find anything that I liked so I decided to create my own. And so A Christian Delight Directed Curriculum was born!!! Both of my girls use …

Stand Still And Let God Move!

Do you ever feel like you pray and pray and nothing happens? Maybe you you try to take situations into your own hands and it just causes more stress to your life?

Well that's how I feel. Lately I have been praying for multiple things and in my impatient heart nothing is happening. But the Lord reminded me that he is an on time God. He has a perfect plan for my life if I will just sit back and stand still and let him move. So I am, and it's funny how things begin to happen or fall into place when you least expect it. I am so thankful that the Lord speaks to my heart. Just the other day my husband had some good news and then something irritating happened and the Lord showed me how the devil likes to seek and destroy. You see in our happy moment something came up that was just simply irritating and the devil tried to still our joy. I am thankful that the Lord gave me the insight to see this and rebuke the devil!
With Thanksgiving upon us I am reminded of all the blessings the L…

The Contented Homemaker

Hello Everyone,

Lets chat for a bit. For as long as I can remember I have longed to be a homemaker. Sure there are a lot of girls who wish to grow up and have a huge career and make lots of money etc. But for me I have always wanted to be a wife and mother. Sound boring? Well I will tell you that the life of a wife and mother is far from boring and it is the highest calling that God has for a women. I have always longed to be like Caroline Ingalls and to live in a tiny house somewhere on the prairie. She was content where ever she was as long as she had God and her family. I want to raise my children as she did firm but loving. I want to honor and respect my husband for all that he is and does and to Glorify God in all that I do. Am I perfect? NO, I fall short in so many ways. The wonderful thing is that God molds me and makes me into what he wants me to be daily. We live in a day and age where so many women are not content and satisfied with life. Maybe its because as homemakers and…
