Being of service means having a heart that is ready and willing to help those in need. It’s especially nice if we can help even before being asked. 2 Corinthians tells us (9:7 NIV) “...God loves a cheerful giver.” For more about how to be of service, watch this short animated video for kids.
There are many beautiful examples of sharing in the Bible. In Acts (4:32-35), the early Christians all joyfully shared their belongings with each other. Everyone had enough and no one was left out. We offer some ideas for our youngest listeners in this short animated video.
Angels are such an interesting topic for most people, but what do we really know about them and how they operate? And what about “guardian angels” - do we all have them? How can we - or should we - communicate with them? Watch this short vlog and then listen to the full podcast of the same name.
How do we know what to pray for? What kinds of things does God want to hear from us in our prayers? What kinds of things are inappropriate to pray for? We should pray for our needs, not our wants. We must be thoughtful, humble, and respectful in our prayers - after all, we are speaking to the Creator of the universe! Get the answers to these questions and more in this short animated video.
We are losing our grip. Really. There is a battle for our children raging before us and we are losing it miserably. Raising children does not at all look like it once did a few generations ago. Back then, parents were expected to control their households and children were expected to grow up within that control. You might argue that such an arrangement was a little rigid. Perhaps. Now children and their feelings have become the idols of their parents' lives and those parents dutifully bow before and serve the desires, hormones and natural immaturity their children display. You might say that such an arrangement is a little - a lot - permissive. Absolutely! So, what do we do about it? How do we think, act and respond to our present parenting crisis? How do we swim upstream against the current of pitiful parenting and grab hold of and apply principles of powerful parenting?
We all want a sense of security and peace and to feel heard, accepted and cared for. Is prayer the way to do this? Should everyone pray? Does it really do any good? Watch this quick video and then listen to the full podcast.
