❓Do you ever get tired of telling kids "no" they can't watch that movie or show or listen to that music or play that game? ❗Help is here!!! This week on the podcast, I share with you a plan to reduce that stress, to help you say "no" less because your child has learned to discern and filter to protect their own heart and mind - the process of teaching them to be a gatekeeper to their heart. ❤It's a week about Guarding Our Hearts - Body & Mind ✔I know you're an intentional parent. Now help them become intentional to establish good habits and be comfortable with tough conversations - learn how to do this with me on the podcast this week!
Proverbs 4:23 says, "Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it" Please take the time to learn how to do that with your kids in our culture today by listening to this week's podcast!
I go into great detail for how we utilize Pluggedin.com at each stage of childhood from the younger years, to the middle years, to the upper years. You need a plan for protecting their heart and mind AND a plan for teaching them to protect their own heart and mind. Hear what alternative to rules we have for TV & movies, how we have conversations about culture topics, what our process is for gradually teaching our children how to be strong GATEKEEPERS OF THEIR OWN HEART & MIND.
If you want to see your child thrive, equip them for these life issues with a clear system that teaches them along the way how to BECOME their own gatekeeper. This is one of the most important things we can do - protect their heart & mind while gradually transferring that responsibility to them. Let me show you one way we do that at our house TODAY, on episode 154!
Business teacher Michael Hyatt, in an article, "Your Most Important Leadership Tool - Three Reasons Why You Must Guard Your Heart," says "If your heart is unhealthy, it threatens everything else 1. because your heart is extremely valuable 2. because your heart is the source of everything you do 3. because your heart is under constant attack
I am seeking to raise leaders who don't cower to bullies, shrink back from obstacles, or linger in the cesspool of the depraved alleys of our world. My long term goal is that they'd be in the habit of thinking before they expose their minds to the things that are destructive to their hearts..
