At some point in our lives we all go through sadness, loss, pain, illness, among many things. The feelings are affected and it is normal to live it. As parents we often do not know how we can handle and / or provide tools to our children so that they can somehow manage their emotions. What can we do?

  • First of all, pray! – I think praying is the first thing we must do. Ask God for help, wisdom and strength! We trust and rely in God’s care and provision to every need we have. And helping our kids with the emotions is one of them.
  • Second, get yourself some information and knowledge based in the Word of God. If you look closer and deep, the bible tons of help for the parents. Take a look at the book of Proverbs!
  • Third, listen and listen again! – Make yourself available to listen and pay attention to words and body language of your kids. Sometimes, they can express something and demonstrate other thing with their behavior. Pay attention!
  • Fourth, love and love! – Give them gestures of love, even when it’s hard to understand their emotions. Being present, providing a hug, give them security! Give words of affirmation always!
  • If your kids are older (8, 10, 12 or older) talk with them about your own experiences with your emotions and how you deal with your emotions in different settings. Perhaps, they feel identified and this helps them with their own emotions.
  • Don’t let them deny or avoid their emotions. Provide a space for ventilation. May they feel safe talking to you. Give them confidence and do not share what they tell you with other people who are not from the same family nucleus.
  • For toddlers and preschoolers, let them come to you in every need! – Pay all your attention to them. If they come crying to you, expect them with arms wide open. They come to you because they feel safe and secure with mom and dad! – Get yourself some tools like books of different topics (this have help me a lot) to explain to them according to their age.

As parents we must be available to our children and promote emotional health. Guide them using faith and the Word of God as a basis at all times. Have you implemented any of these tips with your children? How did it go?

Resources every man of God should have

Each man and each father must seek the resources to strengthen and increase their faith and relationship with God. It is important that each member of the family can contribute to that development. The fathers and men of our home who love God also need to receive love, prayer, and the right resources in their hands to continue to be hard-working men.

Each man and each father must seek the resources to strengthen and increase their faith and relationship with God. It is important that each member of the family can contribute to that development. The fathers and men of our home who love God also need to receive love, prayer, and the right resources in their hands to continue to be hard-working men.

As leaders in marriage and family life, men play a fundamental and necessary role for the good of everyone within the home. They are the head and need to be led and guided by Christ.

Here I share several resources that can be obtained to give to those we love, whether they are our parents, spouses, children or our most precious friends. A detail with love that will encourage them to continue in their faith.

The best resources to encourage fathers spiritually:

  • If you ask me, what’s the first gift that can encourage a man in these days? The Bible! I think this is the most important gift, when it comes knowledge of God. Here is an amazing bible, perfect for Man! The Every Man’s Bible!
  • Just like woman, men also like to see movies. Just, maybe a little different of what we like. However, giving them a good movie that inspires them to continue learning and growing as man or father is a must! My recommendation: Courageous “Honor Beings at Home”:
  • The great companion to their bible study time! Having a more structured bible study in their hands and focused on Men or Dad’s, can empower them greatly in different areas of their life. This Father’s Plan, Bible Study for Dads can provide that help during bible study for them.
  • A Good book to read is always a must have in the hands on of man of God. This book is all about devotions and inspired stories about God’s wonders in the life of men. Dugout Devotions for the Men of God!
  • Entertainment can also be linked to learning. This movie is an excellent alternative to give away and enjoy a Sunday with the family. Just Mercy will speak to any man’s heart about mercy, justice and redemption.
  • For those parents and man of the house who love coffee. It never hurts a beautiful mug with an inspiring message for them.
  • Another great option to complement the bible. This beautiful book full of promises for the man of God who wants to grow and mature in every aspect of his life. Especially growing spiritually. Promises from God for Every Man is a must have companion for the bible.
  • Having extra help for parent-child relationships is good. This journal will help you strengthen your relationship with your children in an always good and positive way. Father and Son Journal will help you to get to know your son better every day.
  • Finally, this book that I consider every man of GOD must read. The man of God, a man of the Kingdom. Full of inspiration, encouragement and strength for the man who is determined towards the perfect will of GOD. Kingdom Man by Tony Evans is a must read and must have in your library!

It is not just giving a gift, that is a nice touch, but giving them tools that help them grow and obtain power for the daily life of a man. Recognizing that the main source of power, of faith, of love is God Himself. Jesus the Rock in which they can lean, rest and regain strength and continue to be a man of courage and good leaders in their homes!

Summer is near and it is necessary that our children can not only have fun but also learn! I invite you to join with your children to an exciting summer camp where we will learn about the some important characters your kids will love! Gather your supplies and prepare for this adventure!

Our DIY Summer Camp is designed for 7 days starting on a Monday but feel free to adjust the schedule according to what works best for your family. If doing one character trait each day doesn’t work for you then spread it out between two weeks. Get the full details HERE!

We will work each character trait with fascinating examples and faith object lessons you will love. Each trait will be represented with kids and family activities (this is for the whole family!), children’s books, family movies and more!

How here at His Purpose In Me you will learn about BE FAITHFUL! Enjoy this great character trait where God calls us to be faithful and He is with each one of us! Read below for a lesson and plenty of activities to practice what you have learned about this trait!

Be Faithful Lesson:

Maybe you know or have heard about Ruth’s Story in the Bible. It really is a complete book of Ruth. It is an interesting, fascinating book and above all it teaches us to be faithful. After Noemi and her family moved to Moab, sad events occurred for Noemi. He lost his entire family. However, God had a plan of redemption for Naomi and her daughter-in-law Ruth. Noemi’s son married Ruth, a Moabite girl who had other beliefs and customs. However, Ruth came to know through her relationship with Noemi the GOD that Noemi served.

When they were alone they only had each other and Naomi decided to return to Bethlehem, so Ruth decided not to leave Naomi and accompany her wherever she went. This is where the faithfulness to the friendship that they had flourishes in Ruth. Thus leaving all their gods, customs and traditions and opening her heart to the true God.

But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.” When Naomi realized that Ruth was determined to go with her, she stopped urging her. (Read Ruth 1)

When we are faithful what do we do?

  • We DO NOT turn our back to the ones we love!
  • We KEEP and STAY near to help others!
  • We DON’T LET differences get in the way of friendship!
  • We KEEP our promises!

Being Faithful is being: loyal, constant, and steadfast.

ACTIVITIES TO PUT OUR FAITHFUL CHARACTER TRAIT ON PRACTICE:

  • Ruth The Belle of Loyalty: As Rooney watches Ruth face the choice to stay or walk away, she learns what it means to be loyal and put another person’s needs before her own.

Fun things to do about faithfulness: Here is some ideas of activities and games you can incorporate to learn and practice this beautiful character trait.

  • The Big Shirt of Faithfulness: With a shirt of your preference in large size (Large, X Large) write on it “The shirt of being faithfulness” Take a time for family members to participate. Two members must put the shirt together, in this way the two will be dressed in the same shirt. They should have it for at least 10 minutes and try to do some activity with it on. Then make a wheel to discuss how it felt to be together. Check out this amazing post at Meaningful Mama about this activity!
  • The Star Movie: a recommend movie about courage and faithfulness. So, prepare a special night with popcorn and get comfy to watch this amazing movie. It’s important that while you watch the movie you can mention the values ​​and qualities that are presented in film through the characters.

In this time, perhaps the summer is not the same for what we are living, but it is up to us to make it an unforgettable summer and with lots of learning! Remember to do each character trait mentioned above, it will be a great blessing for your family!

How to teach your kids to do acts of kindness

The Bible teaches us that kindness is one of the fruits of the Spirit. Teaching kids kindness is important from an early age. But how can we do it? Here I share with you a few tips on how we can teach our kids the acts of kindness.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, (Galatians 5:22)

The dictionary of Bible Themes says about kindness the following: The quality of compassion and generosity, characteristic of God’s dealings towards the weak and poor, and demanded of believers. The kindness is also shown in the words and deeds of Jesus Christ.

In the Bible we have the best example that we can use to illustrate and teach our children about this topic. JESUS! – If we speak about compassion, generosity and kindness we are speaking about Him, and how God (our Father) made a great act of love and kindness with us through Jesus.

The first thing to say here is focus your teaching on Jesus. And you will be giving your children a solid foundation in kindness.

You can teach your kids with the following:

  • Being yourself the example of kindness with themselves. Teaching values ​​begins at home and it is important that we are willing to not only talk to them about kindness, but willing to model it through our actions.
  • When we do acts of kindness it is important not to draw attention to ourselves. Children must learn that these acts are born from love and in the heart.
  • An idea to practice it may be choosing a day to perform acts of kindness with family members. And then, do it with the neighbors and so on.
    • Write a letter of encouragement.
    • Set the table for dinner.
    • Help with cleaning the dishes.
    • Help your neighbor to clean the yard.

Encourage your children to be kind to everyone regardless of differences (race, color). It is very important to teach these things from an early age because today we see a great need for healthy and loving adults in society. When your children do these acts of kindness, give them affirmation words that positively reinforce what they have done.

Finally, pray together as a family and ask God that you can always do acts of kindness and that each act is to give glory to Him. Have you had the opportunity to do this with your children? If not, would you like to start now? Comment below!

Focus your teaching on Jesus. And you will be giving your children a solid foundation in kindness. #faith #teach #kids #howto
