Intentional Grandparenting: What? Why? How? #1

God has no grandchildren.Reading through the Old Testament book of Judges recently, a sentence jumped off the page and jabbed at my heart: After them another generation rose up who did not know the Lord or the works He had done for Israel (Judges 2:10 HCSB). Really?! How could this happen to people whose parents and grandparents had “worshiped the Lord throughout Joshua’s…See More

"I see three reasons that we absolutely MUST reimagine discipleship -- in America and around the world: 1. Our neighbors need it.         Example: Two of the top three causes of death among teens in the USA demonstrate their…"

What Matters Most to God in a Disciple (Part 12 - Series Conclusion)

“Follow God’s example . . . and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us. . . . Now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord.” (Ephesians 5:1–2a, 8b–10 NIV).  With our Bibles open to 1 Corinthians 13, we began our 12-step meditation about God’s top priority for every disciple with this statement: “The most fulfilling journey in life is the path of a person who…See More

What Matters Most to God in a Disciple (Part 11)

“Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” (1 Corinthians 13:7–8a NIV). Love doesn’t quit!  As He continues speaking to us through the pen of Paul, God identifies four ways that distinguish a maturing disciple who reflects His enduring agape love. All four are related to our relationships—which is not surprising, since life is…See More

What Matters Most to God in a Disciple (Part 10)

“Love . . . does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail” (1 Corinthians 13:6 AMPC).Throughout this series on 1 Corinthians 13, we see clearly that what matters most to God in a disciple is that person’s agape love.  Verse six identifies another way in which that love shows. A disciple can be trusted to do what is right and say what is true. That is, this person has trustworthy integrity.…See More

What Matters Most to God in a Disciple? (Part 7)

“Love . . . is not easily angered . . .” (1 Corinthians 13:5b NIV).Potentially the most impulsive—and most destructive—weakness in your life and mine is poorly controlled anger. We are inundated with angry incidents that—if we are not careful—can lead us to give ourselves “permission” to imitate those lapses of control: fiery dialogue in politics, fist fights at supposed sports events, rage on the roads, violent actions and reactions in media “entertainment,” and vicious words at home.  God’s…See More

What Matters Most to God in a Disciple? (Part 6)

“Love . . . does not boast; it is not arrogant. . . .” (1 Corinthians 13:4b ESV). As we continue our journey of discovery into what matters most to God, there is a fourth quality that God seeks in the hearts of His followers. It is a quality that we all wish other people would show toward us, but that we sometimes only grudgingly show toward others: humility.   In his letter to Corinthian…See More

Intentional Grandparenting: What? Why? How? #2

An alarming report recently grabbed my attention:

A seven-year study of the causes of death among teens in America observed that the top three causes of death were accidents, homicide, and suicide.* Almost half­ of those tragedies—about 68,000 deaths—were accidents, and most of those accidents—about 46,000—were by motor vehicle.

Good Day,

 How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through
your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have
something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to
express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back
to me on:( mrs.awounyodoris@gmail.com) for the full
details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mrs Awounyo.
