Growing Relationships at Home

One of a mother’s primary, never-ending, sometimes hair-pulling jobs is nurturing the relationships in the home. In the big picture, few things are more important in life than relationships. Here are some practical ideas to inspire you:

  1. Help your children develop the habit of kindness.
  2. Be deliberate about spending time together.
  3. Just because strife is normal, don’t allow it to be acceptable.
  4. Help them learn to be friends.
  5. Conquer the Me-Monster.
  6. Work on raising grateful children.
  7. Become a better mother.
  8. Develop family teamwork.
  9. Become a kinder wife.
  10. Know your sheep and parent your children as individuals.
  11. Use the words of warfare.
  12. Guard and grow your marriage.

    Just wanted to say “thank you”. With tears in my eyes I am glad I am not “alone” in my thoughts. While I know through the Word I am never alone, satan wants us to think differently. I found your sight on Sunday morning before church searching about “no children’s church”.
    I am thankful for John Piper and love that you sourced his thoughts. I continue to pray and will be lead by my husband. I have felt an increasing call to have our children with us at church. It is amazing how much more a husband will receive views after prayers. He enjoyed your website. I also enjoy your creative thoughts paralleling the Proverbs 31 woman! God is good- all the time!
