Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father?

Sometimes, as a stay-at-home mom, I get tired. I'm sure that other moms will agree. My day is basically the same, day after day. Laundry and dishes never cease to pile up.

We are told that they should take charge of their own destiny, and are in control...they alone have the "power" to shape their lives. I feel quite … Continue reading Why “Empowering” Our Children is a Bad Idea
