Paul, in encouraging young Timothy to be wise in navigating his own life, described faithfulness this way: “holding on to faith and a good conscience.” He went on to say, “Some have rejected these and so have shipwrecked their faith” (1 Timothy 1:19). Of all the things Paul could have used to describe the difference between those who stay the course and those who shipwreck their faith, he picked these two: faith and a good conscience.

I am so very, very excited to share with you a new book I’m reading this month – Motivate Your Child: A Christian Parent’s Guide to Raising Kids Who Do What They Need to Do Without Being Told. Sounds great right? I am only in the very beginning of this but already, I know this is something my children, my family, needs!
Written by parenting experts, Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN from the National Center for Biblical Parenting (NCBP), also authors of The Christian Parenting Handbook, this book gives us real skills, based upon God’s word, to build a strong internal motivation in our kids. As we read, we see how we can help change how our kids live, seeing the world through God’s Word, while bettering their lives and the lives of those around them. It’s simple; its so obvious. I cannot wait for some down time to read more!
