One of our goals in our Kidway ministry is to partner with parents by providing helpful spiritual parenting resources. Each month we provide free copies of HomeFront magazine on our resource board. HomeFront is an excellent resource for parents with kids of any age and is full of encouraging articles, and fun family activities, crafts and games. July’s edition is available now, and the theme for the month is “Course Correction.” Here’s a little preview of what’s covered in this edition (taken from homefrontmag.com):
“Each of us has experienced a season where our course needed some correcting. Romans tells us “all have sinned and fall short,” which means we ALL have times when we need to get back on the right path (3:23). But how do we hear from God in the roar of everyday life? Where do we find the time to seek Him and listen when our schedules are overloaded?
Sometimes God makes COURSE CORRECTION loud and clear, but often He uses a gentle whisper like He did with Elijah. Elijah waited to hear from God, but He did not speak in the fierce wind or the shaking of the earth or even the fire—no, God’s precious words were held in a faint whisper. I recently read this statement: 'You can’t hear someone whisper when he is across the room.' We can’t hear God’s whisper if we are not close to Him.
We can rest in the fact that God wants nothing more than to bring healing and wholeness as He lovingly corrects our course. Our prayer is for this issue of HomeFront to help you learn ways to be still and listen!”
Pick up a copy of HomeFront this week for yourself or for a parent you know could use some encouragement!
