Thank you so much to everyone who commented on my blog the past two days. I LOVED reading your ideas for connecting with your kids!
One thing that was confirmed for me, which I suspected before I ever wrote the devotion Speaking…I Mean Texting Their Language, is that we will not all agree on this topic! And guess what? That’s okay If you are a parent, then you know the best ways to communicate, bond, and connect with your children, just like I’ve learned and continue to learn the best ways to do that with mine. Just take note of this: Never did I ever mention or suggest that anyone should replace face to face communication and quality personal face time with their kids with texting, the computer, or any other form of media. I was merely suggesting something new and current that may in fact be another way parents could put God’s Word into their children’s lives. What I do know, is that we all love our kids very much and we want what’s best for them. We want them to know, love, and have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ that will sustain them for life. I hope we all agree on that
If you missed the discussion over the past couple of days, go back and read Connecting With Your Kids and Top Ten Ways to Connect With Your Children, especially the comments posted by others. There are so many great ideas to inspire you if you have children.
As promised, I am giving away a book and sweet Samantha Reed, our Executive Assistant at Proverbs 31 Ministries, drew the lucky winner today in our office today. Drum Roll Please……..and the winner is:
Jennifer! Here is her comment:
Thanks for the great devotion today! My daughter is only 20 months, so for the time being, its pretty easy to stay connected with her. We like to read her Jesus books and get on the floor and play together every chance we get. I’ve found that in this technology driven world, texting bible verses is great for more than just kids. I sometimes text my husband and other family members verses. Also, Facebook can be used as a great way to stay connected with friends and family as I often post bible verses or lyrics to Christian songs as my status for all to see.
I emailed Jennifer earlier today and will hopefully hear from her soon! Congrats Jennifer, you will love Lysa’s book, Am I Messing Up My Kids?.
Have a wonderful weekend y’all! Can you believe it’s the weekend before Thanksgiving?
Love and Hugs <3
