June’s Helpful Articles

on June 7, 2017

As we get ready to honor our grads, kids and families on Family Sunday this week (June 11), We have a link to a blog post about passing down faith to our kids, and a post about ways to encourage summer memories!


PASSING DOWN FAITH Posted by Nina Schmidgall

Featured Quote: “Even if you are new in your faith, you can live it out in front of your kids, sharing with them both your mistakes and triumphs. One of the best things I have ever heard Reggie Joiner say is, “We can give our kids a front row seat to the grace of God in our lives.” There’s no better way for our kids to understand the true meaning of grace than when we invite them to witness the journey, letting them see first hand the miracle of us being transformed right in front of their eyes.” 


CREATING SUMMER MEMORIES: LIFE’S BUILDING BLOCKS Posted by Amy Fenton Lee Parent Cue- Building Summer Memories 

Featured Quote: “It was not long before I realized that without electronics involved, my child lacked the ability to self-play! The match box car set, the locking blocks, and the puzzles all sat idle as Watson struggled to find constructive activity for himself. Like my young son, many children require intentional parenting to develop the ability to self-play. Reflecting on my own growing up and the downtime I spent playing Atari PacMan (yes, I am that old!), video games hold little significance compared to the memories of… active play utilizing my imagination and family’s existing resources that I fondly remember”


We hope these are helpful and encouraging to everyone as we continue on this journey of caring for our kids and teens!
