Loving Our Kids on Purpose

Standard

This book has been a tremendous blessing to me, and has changed , for the better my relationship with my children.  Making heart to heart connections with our children, and discipline coming from a place of love  and honor as opposed to control and performance, with strict adherence to the rules has made all the difference in our home.

Here is an excerpt from the book, that really struck a chord in my heart.

When the Pharisees asked Jesus what the most important commandment was, He startled them with His response. “Love God, love your neighbor and love yourself. The Pharisees were hoping he was going to say “obey this commandment” Because their culture was steeped in the priority of obedience and compliance to “the rules”
In one fell swoop Jesus promoted relationship above the rules. Love and relationship are the bottom line of the kingdom, and they must be ours if we wish to establish a Kingdom culture in our homes.
