Can’t Have Anything Nice

June 13, 2021 • Shayne O’Brien

We’ve all said it. We’ve all felt it. Queso in the car seat. Popsicle melted into the couch. Scratch on the new refrigerator. We love our stuff. We love our kids. But from time to time there is a conflict between the two. Our anger will set the direction of their lives and possibly how they parent your grandchildren. 1 Corinthians 13:5–7

It’s Mutual

All kids mess up. You did, they will. Punishment seems like the right thing to do. It could be, but only with the right goal in mind. Rules are not the priority, relationships are. Hebrews 12:11

The Ugly in Us

May 23, 2021 • Shayne O’Brien

Parenting has the potential to bring out the ugly in us. Our ego, the fear in us, the insecurity in us, the anger in us and the list goes on. One day we’ll want those same kids to come home for the holidays. What you do now often determines whether that dream becomes a reality. 1 Corinthians 13:4–6

Out of Mind, Out of Sight

May 16, 2021

Part of being a parent is to point our children toward an ideal future for their life, while also being honest about reality. This gets messy because parenting requires telling the truth and offering enormous amounts of grace at the same time. John 1:9–14
