Understand the difference between punishment and discipline.
A child’s obedience is a function of the co-regulation between the parent and with the child. Co-regulation creates a secure base. A secure base influences obedience. A secure base creates positive neurological feedback loops and positive conditioning. Lack of co-regulation between parents causes children to react out of fear. So parents, if you’re dys-regulated, then don’t expect your…Continue

Take care of yourself.
Focus on transforming yourself into the parent God wants you to be. As a parent, you have to feel good enough about yourself to be emotionally available to your child. Your window of tolerance needs to be able to handle any emotion their child brings to them. You need to be a secure attachment figure for your child. God calls us to be in a state of love for our children. You are the best and most likely agent of change for your child. To do this you must…Continue

And if you love me, than you must see yourself in me,
And so learn to love yourself.
And if you love yourself than you can learn to love others
And so the love works through me to you and through you to others.
So love me as you love yourself
and love yourself as you love me.
For this love will open the door
And allow the power of God to be alive in you.
It will give you a reason to believe in yourself

How would you house the spirit
Here in this earthly home?
How would you allow the Breath of God
To be alive in your heart and soul.
How would you live here in God’s creation
And let the Christ spirit be directing you.
And live here with the gift of that love
That is the living light that sees you through.
If you could see the true beauty
And the blessings that so freely abound.
If you could believe with…Continue

I radiate joy and happiness because the Divine Presence within me is the source of good in my life. The peace at the center keeps me joyous, loving and kind. This Divine intelligence leads me on the pathway of success. It is right now directing my thoughts, my words and my actions into constructive channels of self-expression. Anything in opposition to my highest good, is nullified and not a part of my experience.
The richness of life has given me the opportunity to rise in…Continue

And as the Soul in all it’s radiance

So shall your life be lit
By the spirit that is alive in the Presence
Of this light in your Life
Greet the Presence and allow it to open your Heart
To the deepest reflection of God’s Being,
Which is Love
A Love that forgives, a Love that understands and accepts,
A love that shares and heals the wounds of time,
A love that gives you a…Continue

Be present and mindful.
Challenges make it difficult to be present and mindful with your child. Fear causes us to regret the past and obsess about the future. Ever done that? All of us do. As human beings we live our lives largely in memory and imagination. We are either remembering the past or imagining the future. Physically our bodies are present, but our minds are elsewhere. Take a few deep breathes and focus. Try to be fully present in the…Continue

IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL
“But God will rescue me; he will save me from the power of death” (Psalm 49:15 TEV).
The hymn, “It is Well with My Soul” is one of the most popular Christian hymns. Horatio Gates Spafford (1828–1888) composed it. When Spafford was forty-three years old as a Chicago businessman, he suffered financial disaster in the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. He and his wife were still grieving over the death of their son…Continue

Increase quality time with your child.
I recommend that you start to make special opportunities to be with your child by learning the 10-20-10 strategy on a regular basis. Here’s a formula to follow. You spend 10 minutes in the morning, 20 minutes in the afternoon, and 10 minutes in the evening with your child. These are special opportunities to be with your child. These opportunities are to just listen without judging, blaming, or shaming. …Continue

Live the New Life.
Every person has physical life. But when we receive Jesus Christ into our lives as Savior and Lord, we then possess a new, spiritual life-the life of Jesus Christ within us.
This life may be illustrated by a wheel. A wheel gets its driving force from the hub. In the Christian life, Jesus Christ is the hub -- the source of power and motivation for living a Christian life. He lives in us in the person of the Holy Spirit,…Continue

Reverse negative neurological feedback loops.
You can reverse negative feedback loops by interrupting your child’s stress cycle. This will help you connect with your child. Begin by exploring what is contributing to the negative neurological feedback loops within the family. You need to identify your negative reactions to your child’s behavior. Begin to understand what in your past triggers this negative reaction. Understanding this is critical…

HOW RESPONSIBLE ARE YOU?
"If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever" (1 Timothy 5:8 NIV).
In many part of the world, the Fathers' Day celebration for this year will be celebrated this week. While I congratulate all fathers throughout the world, I want to ask each one of us that is a father how responsible we are as…Continue

Be slow to anger and quick to listen and forgive
James 1:19-21tells us to be “quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,” and ready to forgive (my paraphrase of verse 21). I recently found a new perspective for forgiveness. The Daily Word (paraphrased), April 18, 2012 thought for the day: “I give the gift of forgiveness for the blessing of peace of mind.” Forgive is the combination of the words give and for. Ask yourself what you…Continue

My Dear Friend I write to ask you to give us a hand. I ask as a brother in Christ.
If you are a Christian, then you are a Disciple of Jesus, it says so in the Bible. As a Disciple to another Disciple I ask you if you would take a little of your time and sign up as a member of Following Jesus as a Disciple.
I myself is a Born Again Christian as Jesus tells us and this is what I stand on and teach from His teachings, but the fellowship is non-denominational to…Continue

The fabric of Love
How would you embody this Love
That holds the essence of the source of Life?
How can we judge the way the children of God
Choose to Play here in this field of dreams?
As you watch the Journey that has led us
to the Dance that this Miracle of love brings,
You find the compassion to understand
The depth and breadth of this Creation
And the power that brings us to this experience

WARN YOUR EYES!
"I made a covenant with my eyes not to look with lust upon a [lady]" (Job 31:1 TLB).
The world is full of detestable things - things that can drive people away from their Creator. Unfortunately, people are the instruments that the devil is using to propagate these detestable things. Most of these things are what are appealing to the eyes. This was the strategy that the devil used to deceive the first woman, Eve. The…Continue

And the Power it has to Heal the wounds you have felt.
So you may become whole…Continue
