    Bad Behavior is a Symptom of a Heart Issue

    Bad Behavior is a Symptom of a Heart Issue

    If you want a more peaceful home don’t take the normal parenting short-term approach. Correcting your children’s behavior is important and it’s vital to be consistent, but if you don’t tend to their hearts while doing so, it will lead to frustration over time. It also misses an important opportunity for getting to the heart level of the issue with your children that should end by pointing them to Jesus. A biblically based approach to correcting your children. Remember, if you don’t have their heart in this season, you will likely lose it in the next. Just think about it, most Christian parents don’t have their children’s hearts in a strong enough way in today’s society, but it’s essential.

    Who’s Spiritually Leading Your Family?

    Who’s Spiritually Leading Your Family?

    We all must ask this question and be willing to be honest about it. With about 80% of the children raised in Christian homes leaving the church by age 18, we must do things differently than most Christian parents. So who is spiritually leading your family? As parents, I hope we all would want to say “We are”, but the truth is most aren’t. Not with the intentionality and frequency the bible talks about in Deuteronomy 6:6-9. While a church's influence is good and needed, if that’s where they get most of their Spiritual nourishment, then parents are failing in this area.

    Isaac and Angie Tolpin dive into what the Bible says about gender roles in the family and the importance of both mom and dad having influence while respecting God’s plan for the family. They even go into what if your husband isn’t a Christian, and direction for single moms and dads too.

    Food Supply Crisis? Actions You Can Take

    Food Supply Crisis? Actions You Can Take

    There is an attack on the food supply that aligns with some of the nefarious goals of powerful people and organizations. It’s not a lack of trust in the Lord to take action when there are pending challenges coming, it’s wisdom. Regardless of your situation, there are things you can do. Isaac and Angie Tolpin talk about simple steps toward preserving the quality of your family's food supply regardless of the growing corruption of food. We live in a world where there are valid concerns parents should think about with lab-grown meat that has been approved in the US, GMOs, and of course the dangers of the future meat supply.

    We can’t get caught off-guard but instead, do what we can do now. We believe it’s essential for children to grow up learning how to supply their own families in the future with safe food too. Watching and participating with you is the best training.
