Free and Equip Your Children to Pursue Their Unique Interests


A great way to help your children become self motivated is to help them to discover their gifts, talents, and interests. Then, as parents, we have the opportunity to free and equip them to pursue those unique interests. 

To learn more about this, watch this last video in the series, How to Help Your Children Become Self-Motivated. You will also get a sneak peak at my upcoming book, Loving God: A Practical Handbook for Discipleship

He who has not been a determined accuser during prosperity should hold his peace in adversity. He alone who denounces the success has a right to proclaim the justice of the downfall.
— Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

Who knows how easily ambition disguises itself under the name of a calling, possibly in good faith and deceiving itself, in sanctimonious confusion?

How to Help Your Children Develop Their Own Convictions

Many Christian parents today want to make sure that their children develop their own faith. We know that children who grow up in a Christian home often do not follow Christ when they leave the home. They conformed to the family's faith while at home, but did not own it for themselves.


So what can we do as parents to help our children develop their own convictions? How can we help them to learn to seek the Lord directly and understand his will for their lives? Watch this short video to learn how to avoid common mistakes and develop important biblical assumption in your children's thinking. This is Part 9 of the video series How to Help Your Children Become Self Motivated.

How to Stop Arguing with Your Children


Sometimes I am in the middle of an argument with one of my children before I even realize what is happening! How did this happen?

How can I make sure I am having a fruitful conservation with my kids instead of an argument. I can do this by operating according to this biblical principle: Correction can take the form of discipleship instead of discipline when there is respect and teachability.

In this video I explain how to apply this principle to conversations with your children and stop the arguing! This is part 8 of the series How to Help Your Children Become Self-Motivated.
