Parent conversations: How do we teach children resilience? 07/02/2021

Parent conversations: How do we teach children resilience?

Two different, faith-based, meaningful perspectives on resilience: "the ability to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions." Is this something you want for your children?

Parent conversations: How do we teach children resilience? One of the fun parts of managing this column is that I’m never quite sure how God is going to bring it all together—I just know that he will. For example, when I asked Jenni Schubring to write about how to teach our children resilience, I did not expect her to say, “My take is not very pro-res...

Parent conversations: How can I let the gospel shine as I parent? 06/11/2021

Parent conversations: How can I let the gospel shine as I parent?

"In my opinion, this is the toughest part of being a Christian parent—letting the gospel shine in how I deal with my kids. It just seems to come naturally to me to be law-oriented. You sin.

Parent conversations: Why do siblings fight? How should I react when they are fighting?

Some great perspectives on handling sibling rivalry!

Parent conversations: Why do siblings fight? How should I react when they are fighting? My life is so much richer, thanks to my brother and sisters. Each one helped shape me into the person I am today. Part of that shaping involved fighting—a lot of fighting. Yet those fights taught me so much about life, and I was able to learn those lessons in a safe space. Fighting with our siblin...

Forward in Christ magazine

"When we are able to consistently find the good by looking back at every day, we are more likely to anticipate and find the good that is to come."

We live in a sinful world, and sometimes that can feel overwhelming and depressing. But Christians have a beautiful hope and one perfect reason to rejoice. Read more about how we can help our children—and ourselves—focus on God's goodness.

Some of these traditions help celebrate Jesus’ birth—the Christmas Eve candlelight service or the children’s Christmas service, for example. Others may be more worldly, but they still help unite a family. My father-in-law “forgot” h...
