TTWMN 198: Family Faith Foundations

Over the past month, I think Mike and I have done a pretty good job of laying out a snapshot of what is wrong with kids today and the world in general. With shows like “Losing our Kids”, “(So You) Think You’re So Smart” and “The Attack on Manhood”, I’d go so far as to say we’ve likely scared the heck out of you and maybe caused you to seek the fetal position.


We know from what Jesus said that the world would be just like this in the Last Days… but the one thing I think we’ve failed to do with these shows is the very thing we need to do, that we ALL need to do, which is to encourage each other with practical, doable, biblical steps on how to make sure we provide the absolute best foundation on which our families can not only survive, but actually thrive in these turbulent times. Make no mistake, your kids still have free will to choose which path they will travel, as do we all, but if we don’t lay a good foundation for them, the world will likely devour them.

So today, we’ll explore how to provide the best chance for them, and us, to choose Christ over the World, to choose that narrow path, by laying Family Faith Foundations.

TTWMN 195: Losing Our Kids

The recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida has shocked the country with its brazenness and cruelty, but also with its obvious preventability. Any parent who has raised their kids with morals and values, only to see them reject those morals and values, and even Christ Himself after they’ve headed off to college, could tell you that something has been wrong in our culture for a long time now. But now it seems as if the entire generation has lost the ability to reason, as behaviors get more and more erratic, violent, seemingly out of control. You might blame a political party, atheistic professors, ADHD or even the NRA, but the truth is that as parents, you are not helpless against this dark tide. Today’s topic is “Losing Our Kids”, but we won’t leave you without hope—we have some articles with excellent suggestions, even steps you can take toward undoing the damage and reclaiming your kids.

TTWMN 188: Protecting Innocence

There is no doubt anymore that the Enemy now has the full and even enthusiastic support of society to ensnare your kids in a lifetime of slavery to sin. And while the recent headlines of Teen Vogue or plots & characters of Disney Channel’s Doc McStuffins may have shocked us, we know the country has been going this direction for a long, long time. Public education, the media and the entertainment industry have been making a concerted effort to subvert the morality of our children for decades, an effort now aided by parents either too lazy or too afraid to step up and put boundaries on their kids…you know, actually “parent” them, teaching them right from wrong, giving them boundaries, and teaching them their choices have consequences for which they and they alone are responsible.

TTWMN 175: Christian Relationships (Part 2)

As Christians we are called to love all people, even those who hate us or would persecute us for our belief in Jesus Christ. But even we as Christians, saved by God’s grace but still struggling with our sinful and selfish nature, do not often know how to love others well. And loving all people does not mean loving them equally or in the same way. So just how can we do that the way God commands us to as His children?

TTWMN 173: Preparing Kids for the Future

In the last few weeks we saw some major developments in the Middle East and North Korea, possibly causing some of you to worry about the potential for war, and others to expectantly look to the sky for Jesus’ return. And regardless of what you think all this means for you, I know many parents and grandparents who carry the special burden of worrying about how the generations after them will cope, wondering “what will they go through?” and maybe most importantly, “will they remain faithful?” After all, the Enemy has already done a great job undermining Judeo-Christian values in culture, and twisting the Bible to subvert and misguide many professing Christians. So today we’ll take a look at some areas that are the biggest potholes that can sidetrack or even derail their faith.
