Mothers know how to nurture and pamper their children. This natural tendency often makes it difficult to rebuke or discipline our children. We do not want to hurt their feelings or break their fragile hearts. We want to be their friend and parent. What a difficult task! As the little one continues to assert his […]
Here is a poem and scripture for everyone of us to reflect on: For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of […]
Parents of little children provide almost everything needed to keep their children alive and healthy. Clothing, shelter, food, and everything essential. We all came into the world naked and dependent on our parents/caregivers. Despite being the little one’s “provider”, I get excited and feel honored when he decides to share his food or anything with […]

Are we applying this power to the little ones we love and hold dear? Have you ever prayed words of Scripture over your children? This mother does. ◊ A couple of years into her marriage, my daughter shared with me a series of Bible verses that she faithfully compiled together…
This quote reminds me of God, our heavenly father as a parent. God corrects his imperfect children, yet he calls them righteous/perfect and calls forth who they will become. God convicts his children, He does not put the weight of condemnation on them. Conviction leads to repentance, condemnation leads to separation. God models what wise […]
With many schools closed leaving parents to homeschool their kids, it’s becoming a highly anxious situation for many parents (and their children too). On the surface, it may seem as if the pandemic isn’t affecting them, but deep in their hearts what they could be experiencing is fear or at the very least, uncertainty. How […]
As parents of adult children, we often wonder: will my children make good choices when they are out on their own? How can I let them go when I’ve held them close for so long? How do you trust God and not worry when you see your child making unwise decisions? How can you know […]
This post was originally posted on January 30, 2019. I find it encouraging this season as the little one’s behavior has not changed. The little one has come to believe everything in the house belongs to him. He reaches for our food everytime and cries if we don’t share with him. He turns mommy and […]
By grade school most children in the United States have heard of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. They are taught that he fought for peace and equality. This month during Black History Month, I encourage you to go beyond teaching your kids about Dr. King. For example, teach your child about Rosa Parks, a civil […]
When young children speak ill of people or dislike someone, could it be that their parents are partly responsible? When young children do not like Church people, could it be that their parents speak ill of Church folks at home? The answer to these questions is most likely ‘yes’. We shape our children’s worldview with […]
Two days ago, My dear sister, kim Petitt shared her personal experience as a mother raising a Black son in the 21st Century. Please read her short post HERE. We can’t trust our governments to protect our children. They are failing every child regardless of race. While some local churches are speaking up through the […]

Brain regions that respond more strongly to the mother’s voice extend beyond auditory areas to include those involved in emotion and reward processing, social functions, detection of what is personally relevant and face recognition.
Some may argue that my attempts are futile as she cannot understand what I am saying. However does that stop parents from talking to their babies? Isn’t it from our talk, describing the world around them and constantly telling them who daddy and mummy is that our baby’s first words come from those s/he hears the most. We are already training our babies in so many areas: eating, using a car seat, table manners, talking, walking, biting is bad and so on.
Wow! It’s the third month of the year already and the last day of the 5 days of prayer for my children challenge. Day 5 of the reading plan encourages us to study our children. This will help us pray uniquely or specifically for each child and build a good parent-child relationship. We are wrapping […]

I, without thinking grabbed a dark brown crayon and started coloring the girl’s skin. Without skipping a beat, the little boy asked me why I would use that ugly brown color because my real skin was so nice and white. I didn’t know if I wanted to cry or hug him more in that moment.
Anyone want to guess what my son, Carlos is pretending that big plastic spoon is? If you guessed sword, you are correct! He has been obsessed with soldiers and swords for months now. He watched a few episodes of “Bible Man” with his siblings and now that is just about all he wants to play. […]
I have gotten to a point where I clean my phone and hand it over to him when the fight for my phone gets real. He thinks cell phones and everything belongs in the mouth. I am beginning to think he is the second in command after God in our home.
This is a 7-Day reading plan which can actually be completed in 1 hour. It will however take a lifetime to meditate on the words in this reading plan. You have nothing to lose, it’s FREE!
I will wage war for life, but I cannot justify trampling the wounded on the way to the battle. I must keep my heart at a place that I will stand for truth, but also be willing to run across the street for the broken carrying the weight of her choice. When I forget how to do both, then I fall into dangerous territory myself.
As a Christian and mother, I can’t ignore women and children in poverty when I have the ability and opportunity to help.
The changes I have seen the little one go through are pointers to the fact that God knows our needs and He is able to provide all we need exactly when we need them. Teething, babbling, crawling, and other baby milestones occur exactly when they become important. My son’s teeth are not visible at the […]
I heard the sound of a fall while making my way back to the room. My heart sunk. It started beating fast but I couldn’t and didn’t panic……….Perhaps, choosing not to panic or express fear as a new mom is God’s strategic way of preparing me to live fearless in every area of my life.
