11 In the same way, consider yourselves to be dead as far as sin is concerned. Now you believe in Christ Jesus. So consider yourselves to be alive as far as God is concerned. 12 Don’t let sin rule your body, which is going to die. Don’t obey evil desires. 13 Don’t give any part of yourself to serve sin. Don’t let any part of yourself be used to do evil. Instead, give yourselves to God. You have been brought from death to life. So give every part of yourself to God to do what is right. 


Gracious God, give us ears to hear and hearts to receive your words of peace. Thank you for pouring your love into our hearts, and help us to be confident in all that Jesus has done for us. 

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

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.

RAR #173: What Happens in Your Child’s Brain when You Read Aloud
Ready to dive into a little brain science? Today, we're discovering what happens in your child's brain when you read aloud. This is probably not a surprise, but... A LOT is happening. Dr. John Hutton of the Reading and Literacy Center at Cincinnati Children's Hospital is joining me to break this down. I love how he puts it in the beginning of this episode: that scientists are using fancy methods to verify what we already know - that reading aloud is good for our kids. Want to know what happens in your child's brain when you read aloud? You're in the right place. IN THIS EPISODE, YOU'LL HEAR: how the brain actually readsthe immense value of dialogic reading (don't worry - you're already doing this!)how reading aloud "primes" the brain for reading independently CLICK THE PLAY BUTTON TO START LISTENING: TIME STAMPS: 3:35The RAR Premium Spring Lineup! 🌸🌱6:09Lots of nature!9:44What's going on 'under the hood' when we read aloud14:40How the brain actually reads18:42Seen on an MRI23:44'A Goldilocks Effect'30:15'Neurons that fire together, wire together'37:25Let the Kids Speak QUOTES TO REMEMBER: "There's a maxim in neuroscience: neurons that fire together, wire together.
