The Texas Shindig will be a joyful gathering of families growing in the grace of God, and will be an opportunity for your kids to meet their life partners.
Be careful to never betray their trust, to never be the source of consternation or fear.
God says look diligently because it takes real focus to avoid catching the flu of bitterness.
We are not going to always do and say the right thing at just the right moment, but there is one thing we can get right every time without fail…
The obviousness of the child training principles, along with Mike’s sometimes obnoxious wit, was just what our family needed to really solidify some of the basic mindset of the need for consistency and what it looks like.
Kids are made of rubber. They bounce back if we don’t get frustrated and throw them away.
The following was written 12 years ago when Amy (Amy’s parents are on the cover) was four years old.
The girls are ready, trained, and waiting for their man to come find them, but the men are not finding them. Why?
I would like to receive your bimonthly magazine. No Greater Joy Ministries….It would be appreciated, Thank you, H Brallier
“How Can You Help” on p. 19 really changed my life. I had decided to get off facebook and stop ‘teaching’ others and completely and exclusively focus only on my home and my family. The next day, I read that little paragraph at the bottom of the page and knew God was talking to me.
I’m 39. My son has graduated homeschool and begun college and my husband works second shift, so my evenings are pretty free. I have 3 women that I am mentoring already and I was an administrator on the “Created to be his HELP MEET” facebook group which had become extremely quiet. But I was just ready to give it all up and become a recluse!
After reading this little article, I decided to stay on Facebook and see what would happen. It’s been amazing! The group has grown so fast. We are going through the book as a group. God is adding women who are finding a safe place to seek to be a helpmeet. They are blossoming before my eyes! They are reading and hearing difficult godly advice and REJOICING in it!
Not because of me, and not because of Debi, but because He uses anyone who is willing to be used. I am no more than a glove on the hand of a surgeon. But it is quite an honor to be used and see what He is doing! If you would like to check out the group page, here is the link. It is closed (only members can see posts), so you have to request to be added. I or one of the other administrators will add you. Just be patient, we may not happen to be on at that particular moment.
