CHALLENGES...PARENTING...TEENAGERS...STRESS...CHILDREN...FAMILY...WOUNDED HEARTS...ANSWERS

I think we would all agree on this statement:  I want my child/children to grow up making the right choices.  Right choices lead to right character.  As Christians, one of God sanctioned purposes is to grow more and more in our likeness to Christ Jesus!  In the ebb and flow of life, this growth into Christ likeness happens most often when we make choices that please God.  Life is all about developing character, and it all begins with the making of good choices. Here's a practical help...you might want to download a copy of this and put one on the 'frig door, or on the mirror where you kids look at themselves ever morning and evening....just make them aware of Right Choices...hope this helps in your efforts to help your kids make right choices...whatever you do never....never...never give up!
