As we jump back into the fall season and school schedules, we wanted to spotlight a really great resource for parents, grandparents, and others invested in kids called “Connected Families.”

From their website:

Intentionally checking your parenting

When things get stressful, intentional parenting might mean taking a deep breath and double checking a few things:

  • Do my kids know right now, in the middle of this mess, that they are safe with me? 
  • Do they know they are loved no matter what? 
  • Am I showing them they are called and capable of making good choices? 
  • Am I communicating that they are the ones responsible for those choices?
  • What do I need to say or do intentionally right now to make sure my children hear these messages?

“It sounds so simple to memorize four key messages you want your kids to feel in every parenting situation: 

You are SAFE with me.

You are LOVED no matter what.

You are CALLED and CAPABLE.

You are RESPONSIBLE.

But as you dig deeper into what it looks like to project these messages to your children, right in the middle of their misbehavior, it can transform your family.”

God designed the home as the primary place to nurture Christian faith. Faith Path is a step-by-step process that provides resources to help you foster spiritual disciplines and prepare for key milestones along your child’s faith journey.

PERSONAL CONNECTION

No one should have to walk alone. Life is simply better when we know someone cares. We often feel better prepared as we enter a new stage of life with a little support or wisdom from someone who has already walked the same road. At times, the seasons and circumstances in which we find ourselves are challenging or deeply painful, and having someone to talk or pray with can encourage our hearts. 


If you would like to connect with someone from Crossroads Church who has walked through this season of life or through a similar circumstance, please e-mail us at faithathome@crossroads4christ.com and we will be happy to connect you confidentially.
