"Life is a marathon, not a dash, and the victory goes to the ones who PACE themselves. God wants us to live a life of balance and joy." — Karen Jensen

When my boys were younger, we prayed before school every day.

As I prayed, I always told them that they had such an unfair advantage over the world – they had (and still have) the Greater One living in them! (1 John 4:4)

Isn't that the truth?! With the Spirit of the living God inside us, we don't have to face daily challenges on our own -- we have His supernatural help!

One time a mom told me she had been fretting and anxious over her children (even though they were saved), so she began reading the "Parenting With a Purpose" devotional every day....

One day as she was reading and confessing about the Holy Spirit in their lives, she suddenly realized that rather than worrying about them making wrong decisions, she could trust the Spirit in them.

What a wonderful revelation! And we can all do that. Our faith isn't necessarily in our children's ability to get everything or do everything right -- our faith is in God, and His Spirit within them.

Your children are not out there all alone in the world. Think about all that the Holy Spirit makes available to them:

  • He’s helping them – with everything they do today! Ephesians 3:16 says He’s strengthening them by His spirit.
  • He’s helping them to remember things they may need to know (especially with school work and tests – John 14:26).
  • He’s guiding them and helping them make right decisions (trust Him to do it! – John 16:13).
  • He’s protecting them (John 17:11).
  • He’s empowering them with supernatural power (Acts 1:8).

Today, no plan or force of the enemy can harm your child. Be a faith parent and believe it!

John 14:17 says that as Christians “we know Him, for He dwells with us and will be in us.” Thank God. The Holy Spirit is causing your children to overcome in every situation of life today -- believe it!

What Parent's Are Saying

“My four year old son was out of control, to the point where I had to take him out of pre-school and stay home with him. But after just a few days of applying these parenting principles, he has changed dramatically!  Now he listens and obeys, and our home is peaceful – it’s almost miraculous! I am putting him back in school and able to continue with my own schooling.  Thank you so much!”  — F.L.

“My wife and I began putting these principles into practice right away and began to see excellent results. Our children respond very well to our godly way of discipline.  So much better for us. Thank you!”    — M.L.

“I attended one of Karen's seminars and it was far above everything I expected. It has equipped me with information that I needed to properly launch my children into their destinies.” — R.T.

“I have a 2 year old daughter and I didn’t believe in spanking until I watched Parenting With a Purpose and was made to understand the biblical purpose of spanking. Now I get it!  Now my daughter will benefit every day of her life – she’ll be able to fulfill God’s purpose for her life.  My home is now peaceful and calm with a loving and obedient daughter who will grow up obeying God’s Word quickly.”   — T.O.

“I learned SO much from Parenting With a Purpose about God’s view of parenting. I especially learned about correction and why & how to do it.  I can’t imagine waiting until my child is older before taking this course.” — K.H.

“After applying these principles of correction then praying with my son afterwards, he gave me a big hug and looked straight into my eyes and said, ‘I love you, Mom!’ I just melted.  He is 3 and has never expressed this kind of emotion before. I have taken many parenting classes and finally one that works! I now have the skills to help my child obey me so he will obey God." — M.J.

"Our 6-year-old grandson got his first report card at school this Friday.  The teacher had only positive things to say about him.  She said he is affectionate and helpful, both to her and his fellow sutdents.  He is obedient, attentive and a good worker. His big ‘turn around’ from being a rather disobedient and whiny troublemaker began when you came to our city and taught us how to raise children God’s way. My husband and I bought your Parenting With a Purpose CDs and gave them to our daughter.  Since then our grandson has never been the same.  I am so happy.  Thank you so much for coming!"  — L.K.
