Standing In Faith, Even If Your Spouse Doesn't

May 18, 2021

Recently I got the special privilege of interviewing Sarah, from HER Tribal. Her and her daughter have both been a part of our Girl Truth community from the very beginning. She is also a dear friend to me.

 

During her interview she shared her personal story of leading her 3 girls spiritually in her home during a time when her husband was no longer leading or interested. Sarah and her husband had served in the ministry for years. They loved the Lord and put Him first. Things were going really well and they were both on the same page. God was using her and her husband’s marriage to break generational things off. God was shifting things and getting them ready for a big transition and a major breakthrough. He was calling them to pastor their very own church! For years they assisted other pastors. Now they had their own church and the target on their heads that caught the enemy’s attention just got bigger.

 

Sarah felt something coming. She begin to notice that her...

Are Your Spiritual Priorities in Order?

May 06, 2021

Focusing on ourselves as mothers may seem selfish, but really it’s the best thing we can do spiritually for our children. Making that time to read our word, having devotional time with the Lord, praying, etc is how we set ourselves up for success. Not just success in our own life, but also as that leader pouring into our children’s lives. In Matthew 4:4 the word of God says, “It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Have you ever felt like you’re just lost or not on fire for God the way you once were? Put yourself first and spend time with God. Don’t leave your spiritual life on the back burner. Put it at the forefront so you can walk in his love, authority and full of his word.

 A study by Barna showed that kids who have a lasting faith are highly influenced in their home spiritually. That’s doesn’t come as a shock to me. That’s one of our core messages in Girl...

What is Tsaphar and How Do We Live Out This Meaning?

Apr 27, 2021

            What is a watchman and why is it such a vital role for us women to have in our home? You probably seen dozens of movies with a watchman on a tower or on a really high-leveled wall. The watchman was probably old and feeble, haha! His main role was to observe and be a lookout for enemies, danger and harmful things that were trying to enter the city gates. The first person’s life to be threatened was always the watchman. He had a very important role.

            God has called us women to be watchmen in our homes as well. From a Biblical perspective it may seem very similar to the role of a watchman in the movies, but it is so much deeper. The word watchman in Hebrew is “Tsaphar”. Tsaphar means to look out, look about, spy, keep watch, observe, lean forward, peak and peer into. This word has so much to do with being aware with our eyes. First, before we dive deeper, we...

Are You Living Out Authentic Faith?

Apr 13, 2021
 

Hey Mama,

You don’t have to be perfect. What our daughters need is to see us live out an authentic faith. Not a perfect faith because we’re not perfect. Only Jesus is perfect, but if our faith is authentic then our children will be more likely to gravitate towards what is real. What does that mean? It means we’re not saying one thing and doing another. We’re not lecturing them about one thing and then living another way. When we say we love and follow Jesus they would be able to see that in every area of our life. When we mess up…we own it. We don’t try to cover it up. We don’t try to hide it. We just own it.

If teenagers love anything, it’s authenticity. They love to hear real life stories. They want to know if you’re struggling. They want to know if you’ve walked through the things that they’ve walked through. It’s this time in their life when they’re deciding all sorts of things about who they are and...

Since 2009 self-harm has increased 189% amongst preteen girls... What!

Apr 05, 2021
 

Did you know since 2009, self-harm has increased 189% amongst preteen girls. While that statistic is staggering, it says nothing of the suicide rates, the depression and the anxiety rates that are skyrocketing with our teenagers. No one can say that social media causes these mental health concerns, but there is an absolute correlation between the usage of social media and the way that our children are experiencing mental health. See, it’s so important that as educators, as parents, as mamas, as fathers, that we are armed and ready for the battle that is already on our doorstep.

I created a Digital Worldview because I wanted parents and educators, mentors to know, according to Life Impact 360, that only 4% of Gen Z has a Biblical worldview. Well, if only 4% has a biblical worldview, then what worldview do they have? I call it a digital one.

I ask parents all the time, “Who is discipling your child?” I say discipling because they are following so many different...

Being The Guard of Your Home

Mar 16, 2021

I recently seen a video of a woman who went under cover as an 11 year old girl with her media company. It only took 1 minute for predators to start messaging the woman who was portraying herself as a child. These predators commented with obscene words and pictures. It was shocking!

 

Now I know just like me, many of you have been concerned about social media and what's going on online. It's important to be aware of what can happen. 

 

Most of us are familiar with Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram. Nowadays there's so many different social media platforms to choose from. Here's a picture of a few apps that are popular with teens. Do you recognize any of them? I could literally only identity 5! That's it, but these apps are popular amongst our teens. They present a world of different things to our children. 

 

Statistics show that 84% of children between the ages of 12 and 18 have cell phones. My biggest concern as a mother right now, regarding this...
