"If you’re always tired, always under-rested, you’re not going to be capable of doing everything you need to get done.  You’re going to make mistakes more readily, lose your temper, or miss opportunities. " — Karen Jensen

When it comes to our kids, there’s a lot to be afraid of these days….drugs, gangs, danger, kidnapping, failing in school, rejection…..it’s easy to have fear for your children.

But if you’re a Christian, remember that you are not of this world….we have inside information – INSIDE THE BIBLE.

You don't want to surround your kids with fear and doubt. Instead you want to surround them with faith and the protection of God.

You don't have to be afraid! God promises protection and victory for us, and for our children. (more)....

In Luke 10:19 Jesus said, “Behold I give YOU power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over ALL the power of the enemy and NOTHING shall by any means hurt you.” Psalm 91:10 says no evil shall befall us. Proverbs 18:10 says the name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and they are SAFE.

According to God’s Word, you and your children are safe!

One of my favorite parenting stories in the Bible is about a Hebrew mother named Jochabed (Exodus 2). Her baby boy, Moses, was born in a time when the king was having every Hebrew baby boy killed. Understandably, she hid Moses, until she couldn’t hide him anymore. To save him, she did something amazing….she put that precious baby boy in a basket, and sent it down river.

Stop to think for a moment about putting your baby in a basket, in a river, in a country where they’re killing babies that look just like her baby. Amazing! And you know what happened -- down river a bit, the king’s daughter picked Moses up. And she said, “Oh look, one of those Hebrew babies like my father is killing. Let’s keep him!” And Moses grows up in the lap of luxury at the king’s palace.

I tell you, only God could come up with a plan like that. I’m amazed every time I read it! And if Jochabed (a woman who wasn’t born again, and didn’t have the spirit of God in her heart like you and I) could send her baby out into the world with faith in God’s protection, you and I can send our children out into the world with faith. And we can see miracles happen to them, just as she did.

This topic of fear is a huge subject, and there’s not enough space here to cover it all, but I just want to encourage you to keep your child surrounded with faith, not with fear. Meditate God’s Word about His protection, until it becomes more real to you than fear. You and your children are SAFE!

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.
