Biblical parenting can certainly supply the tools your family desires to gain victory over the battles confronting you every day. We’ll show you the best ways to get started.
Before we begin, allow me to ask you a question. What is the initial thought or picture that comes to your mind when you hear the word “parent”?
If you said “discipline” or got an image of disciplining, you need to adjust your focus.
It may be time for an attitude revolution, and Biblical parenting is the answer you are seeking.
There are several new and old fads available ranging from authoritarian parenting to permissive parenting.
All you need to do is take a quick look at how children act at the mall to realize the majority of parents are struggling BIG TIME.
The answer is to return to the fundamentals – Bible parenting.
The Bible has plenty to say about parenting.
While there may only be a handful verses that directly address parenting, many passages present useful insight to direct parents.
But who will you turn to as your authority on parenting wisdom?
Is it going to be Dr. Phil, Dr. Spock, Oprah, or your Heavenly Father?
A effective place to begin is finding a several Scriptures on parenting.
One such verse is located in Eph.Ch. 6:4 and says, “Dads, don’t exasperate your children; instead, raise them up in the guidance and instruction of God.”
Now this might appear fairly simple. Do you have any idea how many ways there are for loving parents to provoke their children? There are plenty, and as parents, we have to be careful to avoid them.
The 2nd aspect of this passage demands that you be informed about the Lord’s directions.
Let’s take the 10 Commandments for instance. Could you identify them right now?
Our Supreme Court outlawed them from public schools because they could persuade our sons and daughters to tell the truth, not steal others’ belongings, and also be faithful to your spouse.
I am not kidding.This occurred in 1980.
The idea here is that parents should have an useful plan to follow and stick to, in order to be successful.
There is a great deal in the Bible that is worthwhile for parents. Hey guys, we don’t need to re-invent the wheel.
Pick a couple of areas in which you hope to see your family progress in and spend some time finding some passages that fit. Apply them consistently and your family will certainly experience the transformations you are expecting.
There are no short cuts to becoming a wise parent, but Biblical parenting is the most helpful means to help you successfully cope with today’s home struggles.
Put some enjoyment and celebration back into your home. Come with our family and start celebrating with the Biblical feasts now.

My Jewish Cookbook
We have seen such an awesome display of God’s goodness in our lives and we want to share that with you.
Our Jewish cook book is actually a family guide to Biblical holidays. It is full of Jewish cookbook recipes for you to enjoy and share with your family.
We have put together a short video to introduce this unique and colorful digital Jewish cookbook below.
To celebrate Jesus every day and see that celebration influence my family and everyone I encounter is my constant hope. You and your family can put the same life-giving influence to work in your lives. I trust these questions and answers will propel you down that path.
Q. Does celebrating Jesus bring success in THIS life?
A. Being a Christian doesn’t mean that you and your family have to be doormats. Jesus didn’t let the world run Him over. He laid down His life freely as act of love and obedience. He was the most successful person to walk the face of the earth. Your family can enjoy the same success He did right now, by learning how to celebrate His life of love.
Q. How can I celebrate Jesus’ life?
A. The most obvious answer is to imitate Him with excitement. That’s easier said than done. It all starts with laying down your life and declaring Jesus to be your Lord, which means master. The saying part is still important because it keeps the door of hope open to becoming more like Him. Through constantly praising Christ, reading and confessing Scripture, and walking in the fruit of the Holy Spirit, we move closer to being able to imitate Jesus.
Q. Is it really possible for me to be like Jesus was?
A. Jesus was and is much more than someone to admire. His life revealed to us how to gain victory in every circumstance of life. You and your family can love like He did, forgive like He did, and walk in victory like He did. Now, that’s a lot to get excited about. Jesus even pronounced that we could do greater works than He did. Let’s not sell ourselves short.
Q. Does Jesus want us to celebrate the Jewish festivals?
A. Let’s not make this too complicated. Part of celebrating Jesus is imitating His life and Scripture tells us He did participate in the Feasts. The Last Supper was actually the Feast of Passover. Jesus also participated in the Feast of Tabernacles as described in John 7. These appointed times of feasting were established by God for the Jewish people to observe. The feasts gave them continual opportunities to honor and remember God’s place in their lives. I firmly believe this is true for Christians also.
Q. What spiritual meaning does the Passover Lamb hold for us?
A. In the New Testament, Jesus is called “our Passover.” God sent His Son, the Passover Lamb, so that we all could have access to being transformed from death to life. Everything that is separated from God is moving to destruction. Just watch the news to see evidence of this. He gave the Israelites the Passover feast to mark their change from slaves to being a free people. This was only the starting point of the process of their transformation. And it is through Jesus alone that we are able to celebrate OUR movement from death to life.
During the past 10 years, our family has discovered lots of cool ideas about how to celebrate Jesus. One thing we definitely need is more chances to bring times of celebration into our homes. Come right now to get some more ideas for your family to celebrate the Biblical feasts.
What happens if someone decides to keep the Sabbath?
The simple answer is that it will release blessings into your life, especially your business endeavors. It’s a rather simple concept.
It wasn’ that long ago, maybe 35 years, when businesses started to ignore observing the Sabbath. Or should I say business owners.
God is not against us having wealth. He is against wealth having us in its grips. He knows the result of this situation – ultimate ruin.
God instructed us to keep the Sabbath as a way to imitate Him, follow in His footsteps. Is that such a horrible thing?
Here’s a no-brainer folks – REST. We were created with a need for rest. When we ignore that need, when we ignore God, we will suffer the consequences. Your health, your family, and your pocket book may suffer. That is not God’s will for us.
What we do with our times of relaxation says a lot about us. It reflects what our priorities are, what we value. So, what’s really important to you?
The seventh day Sabbath is not complicated. The Jewish people were instructed to observe the Sabbath on a Saturday, every 7 days. Almost all Christians recognize Sunday’s as the Sabbath. Is it more than just going to a church service to you, though? We hope not. We encourage you to rediscover the power that can be released into your life as you keep the Sabbath.
Pleas forgive if we don’t stop here. There is also something called the Sabbath year. You guessed it. God introduced the coolest vacation idea in resting every 7 th year from your labors. We bet this one just blows you away.
What does all this have to do with? It has to do with effective time management. People and companies spend lots of money on courses to teach them how to manage their time.
Our message here doesn’t cost you a dime, but just a little time. Christians have no excuse when it comes to time to time management. We’re not saying we never complain about not having enough time.
We ‘re just saying that the Christian time management concepts above, will set you on a new path to success if you begin to put them into practice.
To get started, pick just one new way you can keep the Sabbath and ask the Lord to bless your efforts to honor Him. And expect His blessings to come!

Family life winning tips are what this blog is all about. So let’s get to the basics here folks.
Life here on earth is not a random thing. We are all part of God’s grand plan whether you choose to follow His design or not. God is not trying to keep the enjoyment of this world from us. He simply wants us to seek Him first, His way first, and allow His Son Jesus to be the master of our lives. And through Jesus, ALL things are ours to enjoy. Then we are able to become the blessing we were called to be and change this world for the better.
The best way to do this is as a family, not as individuals. The family is the building block of society and the building block of the Church.
We will be covering all kinds of life-changing tips ranging from marriage tips to parenting tips to home business tips and to spiritual living tips based on the Bible.
