8 Tools for a Godly Wife by Heather Longshore
“If you want to be a wise wife, that starts by being a wise woman. Proverbs says the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight (Proverbs 9:10). So there is no wisdom without acknowledging God. There is no getting wisdom without asking God for it either.”

Teen Girl’s Guide To Growing in Christ by Tim Challies
“While I have no experience in being a teenage girl, I’ve got a fair bit of experience in raising them. And from the perspective of a father, I can say this book represents exactly the kind of knowledge and wisdom that will serve them well for the few years they are teenagers and for the lifetime beyond.”

I Wish Another Mom Said This to me Years Ago by Christi Gee
“Biblical parenting is kingdom work, so you are up against the kingdom’s enemies. If it feels like you are always fighting a battle, it’s because you are. Recognize that the most strategic battlefield is in your own mind. The enemy knows that if he can undermine your confidence, he will thwart your efforts.”

Protect Your Eyes
This is a website that will help educate parents and teens on the possible dangers online.  It provides blogs, monthly newsletters, and many other helpful tips in creating a safe online environment for your family.

Why Satan Is No Friend of the Family by Tim Challies
“Turn on the TV or fire up Netflix and you’ll see picture after picture of society’s distorted plan for the family, society’s unbiblical redefinition of family, society’s vision of how the modern family needs to evolve with the times. They are creating pictures too! Open your Bible and you’ll see God’s much better plan, God’s much sharper definition, God’s much clearer vision. It’s your job and my job to carry out God’s true intention for the family and to create a more accurate picture that he can use—that he will use—to proclaim himself and his gospel.”

Why We Should All Work in the Church Nursery By Melissa Edgington
“Sometimes we tend to think that when we are in the church nursery we’re cut off from worship. We feel like we missed church. Even those precious young mothers may claim that they simply can’t worship if they are sequestered to the nursery. But, if any of us feel that way or try to use that as an excuse not to volunteer, then we are forgetting an important element of worship: service.”

Soli Deo Gloria,

Adam B. Burrell
