Book Summary:

Manifesting God's Love in Your Family (Growing Together in Faith)

Manifesting God's Love in Your Family [2013]  will restore your faith when family members test you.
 

Parenting isn't easy no matter what. If we want to make it to the finish life with some sort of sanity, we must make a stand, morally and ethically, that will empower our children to embrace life without fear or being pulled into the negativity this world has to offer.
 

Being a great mentor takes strength and equipping ourselves with the Word of God on a daily basis. Having knowledge allows us to know why He chose to give us these amazing gifts. 


Children do not ask to be here, they come to us as a gift from God. He gave us wisdom and knowledge to take it from there and to follow His words so they have a chance to make it through their adolescent years serving Him not running the streets.
 

The world is tough on all off us and because we are seeking His face, doesn't mean that trials and tribulations will not come against us. It's what we do with them and how we handle ourselves is what really matters.
 

Stay focused on the Creator and less on the creation. Do not get distracted by looking to the left or right. Remain on course and know that the Bible has already laid it out, all we have to do is be open and allow our spirit to receive.
 

Our children need healthy mentors in their lives. They don't need you to be their friend, they have plenty of them already. They look to us for solid answers and it is our responsibility to fill them with His words of wisdom, not ours. 


We should not be afraid of our faith, nor should we think that just because we are the elders that we have all the answers. God has supplied us with many ways to handle situations that will leave our children feeling content, not angered by our smug remarks.
 

This book is about obedience. And, when we are, we will want to be the kind of person that walks their talk rather than speaking out of both sides of our mouths. The last thing we should want to show is hypocrisy. Know who you are within your faith and stand fervent. There is no room for wishy-washy parenting.
 

God loves you so much that he has entrusted you with these children. Mold them carefully into what He wants them to be so that they will, one day, preach the gospel and share His love with all those they come in contact with.

THE BOOK "I'm Doing The Best I Can!" (They won't always be cute and adorable)

THE BOOK "I'm Doing The Best I Can!" (They won't always be cute and adorable) [2007] has been said to be "One of the most down to earth parenting/family resource you will find for today's parenting needs."


Lisa Hein, a parent herself, shares her parenting experiences from birth until her child walked out the door for college. She says "Being a mom is a full time job that never ends."


When her child was born, her world did a 180 degree turn. When he was in elementary school, she was the center of his world. In middle school, she was the most 'awesome' mom ever, and by the time he went to high school, she was the most ‘ridiculous’ person he had ever met! 


Her heartfelt story allows parents to see that even though we brought these children into the world, doesn't mean they have to be the 'center' of our world. 


It appears that, at times, we provide too much for them, things that maybe have no value to establishing their personality or path. 


If we understand then these children come to earth with their own agenda than maybe we can learn to relax and allow them to teach us what they have to offer.


Parenting can be one of the most incredibly difficult journeys we make, or, it can be the most amazing discovery zone we've ever entered. We have the ability to teach our children to be loving, respectful, and caring human beings by taking time out of our busy schedule and spending 'quality' time with them. 


Children don't warrant - 24/7 in your face parenting, they do need really healthy and positive affirmations that teach them to be good decision makers while realizing the consequences for their actions.


It's so important to not cross lines that may put you in harm’s way, eventually. Stay focused on everything you are doing to help mold your children into self-sufficient individuals without feeling that you have to provide everything for them. 


Lisa feels that parents today try too hard to be their child's friend, to make sure they have every technological gadget, which they have 'everything' we never had....and the list goes on.


Let's stop this insanity, and bring back the theory that we were raised on...'if you want it, earn it.' Maybe then, we will not end up with self-absorbed children who think the world revolves around every one of their needs. 


Hopefully, with lots of boundaries and consistency we will raise healthy, good decision-making children that will not fall prey to what the world has to offer them!
