Are you looking for practical tools to help you parent purposefully in the new year? It is easy to have great ambitions and goals for our parenting, but without specific planning, we tend to never quite follow through on those goals.
It is vital that you make a plan to parent purposefully in the new year and choose tools that will help you stay on track with those goals. These are resources that can be used at any time during the year, so pick and choose according to your needs at the time.
I’m going to share tools to help you — some are free, and some need to be purchased but I will provide coupons for those!
6 Tools To Help You Parent Purposefully In The New Year
The first four tools are free 30 Day Challenges which will make a huge impact on your home and family.
One of the most important things you can do to parent purposefully and Biblically is to stay in God’s Word daily. It is in His Word that we find direction and wisdom for teaching and training our children, and pointing them to God.
If you struggle to spend time reading God’s Word daily, this is for YOU! You can download and print the pack which includes a verse or two to read and write daily, along with a page to write the verse, journal your thoughts about it, and a prayer.
The goal is to make it EASY for you to do this daily, as it doesn’t take much time and you don’t have to decide where to read or write. The work has been done for you. (I will be adding a new list for each month of the year, with each one being a different theme.)
One of the most important parts of purposeful parenting is praying for our children! Prayer is our source of power, and when we pray Scripture for our children we bring God’s power into their hearts and lives.
I have personally found that when I pray Scripture for my children, God does amazing things in their hearts and lives. I believe that happens because when we pray God’s Word back to Him for our children, we invite His power into their hearts and lives.
We know prayer is important, yet so often we neglect it. Perhaps it’s because we get busy and don’t make time for it; perhaps it’s because we really don’t know what to pray or get stuck in a rut with our prayers.
Join me for this 30 day challenge to pray Scripture for your children’s character, and as a result see God do some wonderful things in their lives, as they grow and become more like Jesus.
Marriage is under attack today, and as Christian wives, we need to go to war and fight for our marriages. The best way that we defeat the enemy is by using the Word of God as our weapon, and daily praying Scripture over our husbands.
There is no better gift you can give to your husband, than the gift of faithfully bringing him before the Lord daily in prayer, claiming the power of God’s Word in his life.
Praying for your husband will help you to see him as the Christian man that God wants him to be.
While thinking about the need to declutter and get rid of stuff, God pointed out to me that I need to focus on decluttering some areas of my life, before I begin to focus on getting rid of stuff in my home.
This challenge is going to focus mostly on the clutter in our homes, but first we will look at the importance of cleaning out the “junk” in our hearts, and decluttering our schedules. THEN we will start working on decluttering our homes.
