As a change of pace this week, you get to watch a video instead of reading a blog post!
Pastor Nathan Breithaupt of The Refuge Church in Walla Walla, Washington interviewed me last month on “Parenting during a Pandemic.” Click this link to view the video on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com
It’s 35 minutes long, so check out a few points of interest at these minute marks:
4:25 – A little about my story and how God’s plans for us and our families are bigger than our little dreams.
8:00 – Who is responsible for your child’s intellectual formation –their teachers, or you?
10:15 – What feels overwhelming to you right now is really God’s grace transforming your family.
14:15 – What is the hidden pandemic we all struggle with, and how do we overcome it?
18:20 – How can we establish a new normal? Why structuring your days is important.
28:20 – Why your kids need both your honesty and your confidence in God.
26:25 – How do we deal with fear? The role of wisdom and kindness.
28:30 – Practical ideas to help your family overcome anxiety.
29:09 – Why you and your children’s ultimate comfort is remembering the character of God!
If you enjoy this format, shoot me a note and let me know. I’m considering more videos (shorter ones) in the future.
May the Lord bless and keep you and your loved ones, and may he open your eyes to new ways of living out his kingdom values in your home.
