Trust & Obey - Lessons from Naomi

Naomi’s shirt was on backwards. At 2 years old you really don’t care about such things, but since we were heading out, I did. She was raring to go, so I told her quickly that I needed to turn her shirt around. She stood still for half a second as I took her arms out of her shirt with the intent of just turning the shirt around and putting it back on. However, the instant I didn’t do the normal thing that comes after taking her arms out of the shirt (taking it off over her head), she flipped out! […]

The point of this post is not to stir up dissension, but to encourage you to seek God’s wisdom for your family in this area as well as in all your ways. For more information on how to find wisdom see the articles here. Do you do Santa in your household? Among Christian circles this has become a fairly heated debate recently.

Finding Wisdom for Dealing with Halloween

Halloween is almost here. And like many Christians I’ve got some mixed feelings about the whole thing. + Trick-or-Treating is a fun activity for kids and is a social time with friends and family – and an opportunity to visit neighbors and others you may not see often – Most of these social times include ungodly things (witchcraft, demonic ideas, overt sexuality and immodesty, mockery of others, etc) + Halloween is named after All Hallow’s Eve, which the Catholic Church set up to remember those who’ve gone before us. – It was meant to replace a celebration with very pagan origins […]
