Melissa Spoelstra in Total Family Makeover inspires her readers to practically infuse a love of God and His word into daily family routines. I love that she challenges all of us not to let our children’s behavior or their spirituality in a snapshot moment be our parenting report card.
She also has lived these practices with her own children and I should know as I’m her sister. I have been on the other end of the phone as bedtime prayers are said based on their weekly list – easily remembered as each prayer target begins with the same letter as day of the week.
Monday – Missionaries
Tuesday – Teachers
and the list continues….
In a world tuned in through our electronic devices and often tuned out to each other, her brave and sometimes difficult resolve to keep Sundays media free inspires me. Stay tuned for the next Counselor Thoughts blog as I will be sharing regarding this particular topic in more depth after presenting one of my more requested parenting presentations – “Wired for Success” at a local church in the DFW area.
Just like my sister many of my friends have creative ways for sharing a love of God and His Word with their families and I’d love to hear from you! Feel free to comment below and let us know a great way you share your faith in your home. We will draw on name from the comments and send them a free copy of the Total Family Makeover.
