"Tests are not a plot and conspiracy against you.  A test is to determine what you know, to see if you're ready for the next level (ie - a math test).  Don't moan over tests — count them all joy, and pass them!" — Karen Jensen

No Strife At Our House!

How can you tell if a Christian is spiritually mature? By how well that Christian walks in love.

Love is the one commandment that Jesus gave the New Testament church, and I believe that families are where we practice.

As parents, one of our jobs is to help our children grow into mature Christians, and a huge part of that is teaching them how to walk in love.

How can we do that? We can look to the Word of God and let it help us develop a culture of love in our homes.

Let’s look into the Word, beginning with 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 in the Amplified:

Playing with Your Baby

You are your baby's first teacher. Babies are usually easy to please -- they like to be well rested, fed, and kept clean and dry.

Your little angel is growing and changing every day, and there are many ways you can communicate and play with him or her.

Remember, babies can be lots of fun! Here are some fun ways to spend quality time with your baby:

Refuse to Worry

In today’s world, it’s easy to worry about your children. There’s plenty going on to cause a parent to worry or fret.

But worrying won't get you anywhere -- it's not the same as faith -- and God doesn’t want you to worry! He wants you to be confident in His protection and care for your family – in every area of your life and theirs.

Worry is borrowing trouble from tomorrow -- trouble that may not even happen. Worry is believing that God might not be there for you and your children.

But He will! And He wants you to trust Him -- to be in faith when it comes to your children.

Is that possible? Yes! God says in Proverbs 18:10 that His Name is a strong tower, and when the righteous run into it, we 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.
