א Aleph

Blessed are those whose ways are blameless,
    who walk according to the law of the Lord.
Blessed are those who keep his statutes
    and seek him with all their heart—
they do no wrong
    but follow his ways.
You have laid down precepts
    that are to be fully obeyed.
Oh, that my ways were steadfast
    in obeying your decrees!
Then I would not be put to shame
    when I consider all your commands.
I will praise you with an upright heart
    as I learn your righteous laws.
I will obey your decrees;
    do not utterly forsake me.

ב Beth

How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
    By living according to your word.
10 I seek you with all my heart;
    do not let me stray from your commands.
11 I have hidden your word in my heart
    that I might not sin against you.
12 Praise be to you, Lord;
    teach me your decrees.
13 With my lips I recount
    all the laws that come from your mouth.
14 I rejoice in following your statutes
    as one rejoices in great riches.
15 I meditate on your precepts
    and consider your ways.
16 I delight in your decrees;
    I will not neglect your word.

How to Take Advantage of Sibling Rivalry to Explain Emotions and Feelings to a Child
Few things can be more frustrating as a parent than trying to mediate sibling rivalry. You want your kids to be friends but instead they are fighting, badgering, and teasing each other. It feels like you are getting nowhere!  You think, “How do I stop him from hitting others?” or “Why can’t my kids just get along?!” But what if we could use sibling conflict as an opportunity to explain emotions and feelings to a child? You know what the cool thing is? Sibling rivalry is the perfect opportunity for teaching emotional awareness and explaining about feelings and emotions to a child. If you’re looking for an emotional intelligence activity, look no further. Just wait for the next time your kids start arguing—probably some time in the next nine minutes. An opportunity to explain emotions and feelings to a child When kids fight with siblings or playmates, their selfish tendencies can get the best of them. But there is real hope: When you as a parent express empathy, you can unlock your child’s big emotions. You can also teach your kids to have empathy for each other. How? By explaining to your child about feelings and emotions, and giving them the language and skills to identify those feelings in themselves and each other.

Understanding Boys Better :: David Thomas [Ep 315]
Understanding the emotions of boys is a challenge no matter the age. Anxiety that presents as anger or distraction. Depression shows up as low-grade irritability. David Thomas returns to the show to answer listener questions about all things boy. David is a family therapist and director at DayStar Counseling Center in Nashville. He has lots of experience counseling families and children and has a set of twin boys himself. We talk about teaching our sons about emotional language, going to counseling, helping sibling relationships, and managing boy energy levels. “I think we need to be clear with boys. I think it's always helpful to use concrete language with them. When we're concise, clear, and concrete, those are kind of three rules of thumb, we can consistently be adopting. The mistake that I think we can make is we kind of soft pedal and dance around things.” If you are a parent of boys, this is an episode for you!

#269: Wrestling with God
How can I trust that the bible is true? What do you do when you’re doubting your faith? What does it look like when your kids come to you with hard questions regarding religion? These are actual questions that came up in an especially candid episode released today. We didn’t know exactly where this conversation would take us and you may very well find parts of it that you disagree with. The great thing is, we are loved by a Father that welcomes the wrestling. The messiness is dialed up to about an 11 on this one! We are just three moms struggling (mostly) well through this hard and honest conversation. We invite you to listen through to the end and pray through the parts that you find uncomfortable, keeping in mind that we are clearly not pursuing perfection over here.

It seems like it's been forever since we last said these words, but college baseball season is here! On this episode we talk about opening weekend for the Aggies and the Bulldogs, and we also discuss our weekend outings to the State / Alabama women's basketball game (me) and the San Antonio rodeo (Mel). Plus, Mel shares some ways we can all jump in and help Texans who are recovering from last week's ice storm. AND. This week we get to spend some time talking with author Elizabeth Passarella. I mentioned her new book, Good Apple, on the podcast a few weeks ago (you may remember that I loved it), and Melanie and I were so excited to get to visit with her. You'll hear part of the conversation on this episode - the rest a few weeks down the road - and you are going to love her. Melanie and I had both talked to her for about three minutes when we realized that it felt like we've known her forever.

No Looking Back
Bible Reading: Luke 9:57-62; Ephesians 4:22-24 "What are you doing, Mr. West?" Brad asked when he saw his neighbor getting out some tools. "I'm going to use my garden tiller to get rid of some weeds," said Mr. West. "Do you want to help?" "Sure," said Brad. Mr. West started the tiller and showed Brad how it worked. "Start here, and keep your eyes on the space between the plants. Walk straight down the row. When you get to the end, move on to the next row." Brad eagerly began. It took some getting used to, but his confidence grew as the weeds in row after row disappeared. He was almost finished when he heard someone call his name. Turning his head, he looked back and saw Mrs. West with a tall glass of lemonade. "Come take a break," she called. Grinning, Brad turned to shut off the machine. To his dismay, he saw that while he had been looking back toward Mrs. West, the machine had swerved and taken out a few garden plants. Mr. West saw what had happened too. "Don't worry about it, Brad," he said. "There's not much damage. Come have some lemonade, and then you can finish the last row." As they sat under a tree with their lemonade, Brad mentioned a problem he was having with some of his old friends. "They're always after me to do stuff I used to do," he said. "And why don't you do those things now?" Mr. West asked. "Well, I'm a Christian now," Brad replied. He sighed. "I know it would be wrong to do some of that stuff, but sometimes it looks like fun." Mr. West looked over at the garden. "When you turned and looked back while working in the garden, it messed up a row, and looking back at your old lifestyle could cause you to do things that don't belong in your new life with Jesus. Instead of looking back to old friends, look to Jesus and His Word for direction in your new life. Maybe He can show you a way to reach out to your old friends without getting involved in your old way of life." Brad nodded. "Okay. I'll do that." He picked up the tiller. "After I finish this last row!" Raelene E. Phillips*How About You?* Do you often look back on things you used to do before you knew Jesus? He promises that life with Him is better than anything we had before, but that doesn't mean it will be easy. You'll have to let go of sinful habits--and maybe even old friends who want you to keep doing those things. Instead of looking back, look to Jesus. Trust Him to lead you in your new life with Him. *Today's Key Verse:* Jesus said, "Anyone who begins to plow a field but looks back is not prepared for God's kingdom." (ERV) (Luke 9:62) *Today's Key Thought:* Don't look back at your old life
