Parenting Supernaturally

How is our parenting supernatural? We find the answer in a powerful passage of God’s Word…. And this paragraph was written specifically for all of us who are married to unbelievers. For the rest of you who are in mixed marriages—Christian married to non-Christian—we have no explicit command from the Master. So this is what you must do. If you are a man with a wife who is not a believer but who still wants to live with you, hold on to her. If you are a woman with a husband who is not a believer but he wants to live with you, hold on to him. The unbelieving husband shares to an extent in the holiness of his wife, and the unbelieving wife is likewise touched by the holiness of her husband. Otherwise, your children would be left out; as it is, they also are included in the spiritual... Read more →

How To Be The MOST Powerful Voice In Your Kid's Lives

Back To School: Equipping Kids in a contrary culture (Lynn) Every, single, day our children are bombarded with voices. Social media and television shout continual messages of entitlement, moral ambiguity, hate, lust and fear, to name only a few. Sheesh! With so much chatter coming at our kids we can fear our voice might be drowned out by voices sent from the darkness. And there are moments in our own home where our children receive conflicting messages from Dad about moral choices, (television, video games, and cultural issues). I know as a young mom I experienced moments of doubt and fear and this upsetting question would flash into my mind: Will my kids go to heaven? How do we help our kids find and follow Jesus in today’s culture? How do we as believing parents help our children listen to the right voices? I have a very simple answer: The... Read more →

SUMite Leaders: All of us are leaders by the way. But for all of you who the Holy Spirit has been nagging to start a small group in your area, this is for you.

Keys To The Kingdom - Part I

SUMites: I have a thing about keys. Last week I believe the Lord poured out revelation upon me regarding keys and their significance in the Kingdom. I also believe that the revelation was not only specific to myself but also to others. Way back in 2009 I penciled together an idea for a book. That book was centered on 10 keys. Winning Him Without Words, was the result and the keys became profound in my life and by default, in a lot of other lives who have read the book and will read the book. Then last year I had a dream. I rarely remember my dreams but on this particular night I dreamt that Jesus handed me three keys. I could clearly see bronze skeleton keys. It was obvious to me they were tarnished and ancient. I knew somehow they were large and weighty. That’s all I remember about... Read more →

Let Them Cry by Joanne Kraft

Joanne Kraft is offering a snippet into her newest book today. Joanne and I have been friends for a long time. Our lives have been interestingly and divinely intertwined. She is a good friend who loves God. I was able to read her book and endorse it. Today, she shares some of her parenting wisdom. Thanks Joanne. Love you girl. Hugs, Lynn ----- My teenage son walked down the stairs with a frown on his face. College classes have gotten the best of him. My pep talk with him yesterday apparently wasn’t as good as I thought it was and my future as a motivational speaker went down in flames. When I brought my first child home from the hospital their cries were immediately met with a soothing rub and my full attention until the whimpers quieted. From baby tears to teenage sulking, I want to make my child happy.... Read more →

Reader Question

Hey ladies, You mentioned in your book together about how you handle media choices. Could you share some advice? Music, tv, entertainers (comedians), too much screen time overall? Also praying that pornography is not an current or future issue. Thanks! Jen Jen’s question is such a good one, my friends, and she graciously gave me permission to answer it here on our blog. What Choices? My friends, as we walk in closer intimacy with Jesus, we become more sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading. Don’t be surprised if you are finding yourself unable to read, watch and listen to things you used to. For example, I used to love to read thrillers and watch shows like Criminal Minds. I can’t anymore—haven’t been able to for a while. In fact, just the other night, my hubby and I were watching one of our shows together (we have a handful we both... Read more →

I'm Pissed Off!!!

Can I say that on a Christian blog? Well, at least it's a righteous anger..... Read with me and then share with me your thoughts. Hugs, Lynn Believing Wife – Agnostic Husband (names have been omitted for privacy) Earlier in the week, Dineen and I received an email from a reader who was seeking some perspective about her husband. When Dineen and I read it, almost simultaneously on different sides of America, the same thing happened. We both were filled with emotion. Heartbreak for our sweet SUMite and also a righteous anger. Here is a portion of her email and then a portion of my reply: My husband, a life-long believer, has become agnostic/atheist after reading about evolution and every book & lectures from a (well-known agnostic author), and has also become very politically liberal in his worldview. He has been sharing with our pre-teen (still believes) and teen (says... Read more →

Audio Books For Busy Wives and Moms

Hi Everyone: I have one more story to share about our book, Not Alone, before we launch into our next series. On Monday we are going to have a discussion about contending with the Orphan Spirit. And my friends, I can almost guarantee we have all faced this demon in some way or another. This is a must read! But today, as Dineen and I end our week sharing our hearts about parenting, I’m moved to share the words of our friend, Steve Smith. Steve represents Oasis Audio. Oasis Audio published our books in audio and they were released about two weeks ago. Steve went way beyond inconvenience to allow Dineen and I to record the books in our own voices.

Hope For You, Mom!

Today I want to share a story with you that deeply touched me and Dineen. Below is a note I received from a young woman who is married and yet to have children. Her name is Stone. Dineen and I have come to know her and her story over the last several months as Stone lives near me here in California. Her story is horrific and also covered with redemption and love. She has faced great pain and fear and yet is finding hope. She is growing to be a Hope-Restorer. Let me set the stage. The note below was written to me shortly after Stone watched the 700 Club Interactive Broadcast where I talked about our new book, Not Alone.

My friends, today I will finish my Bethel story but I want you to know that this adventure is far from over. Our journey with God is an ongoing adventure that unfolds on a daily basis. I’m stunned at times to go back and read in my journal what I’ve written down and then forgotten! I’m so glad I can go back and be reminded of these things because sometimes those little moments wind up being key to understanding what a big one means. As I will share today. I had a small moment before the conference where I found a dime and penny on the ground during one of my walks.

Launch Day - Not Alone

I prayed away a bully! My daughter was in high school and for months and months during her senior year she was being bullied by another teen. The circumstances were such that a direct confrontation with this bully wasn’t possible so I did what any mom would do. I PRAYED. In our book, Not Alone, I share this story along with many others of how God makes every difference in the lives of our kids because we pray. God loves us so much and He loves our kids. This book is filled with real-life examples of how the faith of an ordinary mom can change seemingly impossible circumstances for the good of our children. Mostly this book will encourage every mother who ponders the question, “Am I enough to parent my child to become a life-long believer in Jesus?” There are answers in the pages that will fill your heart...

Praying God's Word

My friends, today I want to make you aware of a couple of great resources. Kathi Lipp is one of my favorite people and a treasured friend. She is as real and authentic in person as she is in her books. And her books encourage, delight and are amazing tools for us to use. Praying God’s Word for Your Life gives women the direction and Scripture they need to bring purpose and power to their prayers. The simple strategies Kathi Lipp shares will create in women the habit of praying with renewed boldness, consistency, and expectation. And Kathi’s warm, approachable style will make praying Scripture accessible to new believers and lifelong Christians alike.
