Back to School Children Crossroads Baptist Church Marshall TX

Parental Peace

I will have to say I am speechless, proud, hopeful, grieving, and to a certain extent living in denial. You see, our baby girl leaves the house on Monday, August 26 for her last first day of this leg of her education. It is startling how quickly these days have arrived. Many of you have…

In Praise of Inefficiency

This is the illustration used in Sunday’s Faith at Home Kickoff sermon. I found it a few weeks ago while looking for family ministry resources. It is by a man named Timothy Paul Jones. http://d6family.com/articles/in-praise-of-inefficiency I saw something beautiful the other day while walking down Breckenridge Lane. In a front yard not far from my home,…

Media in Your Teenagers Bedroom

This is from a weekly newsletter I receive from Eric Tooley with “Ultimate Escape.” Eric is a youth speaker who speaks about purity. We are hopefully having him at Crossroads in February 2014. It seems like every parent program I have ever done I have taught that it is not good to allow a television…

Build on that fun and take your kids on a tent-camping adventure in your living room—they’ll rave about it for weeks! Together, transform a room in your home into an indoor campsite for the weekend. You can even set up…

Quality Time Isn’t Nice; It’s Necessary

With his last hours, Jesus spent time with his closest friends. This wasn’t anything elaborate—just a simple meal together. But in that time set aside to be together, Jesus showed his disciples how much he cared for them. He could have lavished them with material gifts beyond compare, or provided a meal and then gone…

Parents, how do you start your day?

Most Christian parents are well aware of Proverbs 22:6: “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” We focus on the long term. We want to raise our children well so they will make good choices as adults. What about the short term though? The…
