UPLIFTING OUR CHILDREN BEGINS WITH PRAYER

MY OLDEST SON ELIJAH, MY BABY PATRICK JR. AND MY DAUGHTER LYRIC

I HAVE 3 BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN ELIJAH IS 19, LYRIC IS 14 AND THE BABY PATRICK IS 11. I HAVE LEARNED A LOT ABOUT MYSELF RAISING THESE CHILDREN AND THE MOST IMPORTANT LESSON THAT I HAVE LEARNED IS TO PRAISE AND UPLIFT THEM DAILY! MY HUSBAND HAS A WAY OF IMPLEMENTING THESE WORDS DAILY BY GIVING MY 19 YEAR OLD HIS DAILY DOSE OF REALITY. HE EXPLAINS TO HIM THE IMPORTANCE OF STAYING FOCUSED AND LIVING THE LIFE THAT GOD HAS PLANNED FOR HIM. IT STARTS AND ENDS WITH OUR TALK TO HIM ABOUT HOW PROUD WE ARE OF HIM AND ALL OF HIS ACHIEVEMENTS....












THE DEFINITION OF PRAISE IS TO GIVE 
VALUE, TO UPLIFT, TO MAGNIFY, TO HONOR,
TO COMMEND AND TO APPLAUD.


WE AS PARENTS NEED TO APPLY THIS DEFINITION TO OUR CHILDREN.












WHEN A CHILD COMES TO THEIR PARENT FEELING DOWN AND NEEDING A BOOST OF SUPPORT, OUR JOB AS PARENTS IS TO SHOW THEM HOW WORTHY AND HOW MAGNIFICENT THEY REALLY ARE. LAYING DOWN THE FOUNDATION FOR THEM TO BE SUCCESSFUL STARTS AT HOME WITH US AS PARENTS.



THAT IS WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO INSPIRE AND PRAISE OUR CHILDREN. BECAUSE WHEN WE SUPPLY ALL THE TOOLS NECESSARY FOR SUCCESS, OUR CHILDREN WILL TURN THEIR DREAMS INTO REALITY. IT IS SO IMPORTANT FOR OUR CHILDREN TO KNOW THAT WE ARE COMMITTED TO THEM. SO EVERY DAY WE HAVE TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE. IT STARTS AND ENDS WITH HOW WE AS PARENTS CHOSE TO LIVE OUR LIVES AND HOW WE CHOSE TO RAISE OUR CHILDREN. GOD HAS A PLAN FOR ALL OF OUR CHILDREN AND WE HAVE TO GIVE OUR CHILDREN THE TOOLS THAT THEY NEED TO NAVIGATE AND REACH THEIR GOALS. THOSE TOOLS ARE LOVE, PRAISE, RESPECT AND ENCOURAGEMENT THEY ALL GO HAND IN HAND WITH THE TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE.


PRAISE OUR CHILDREN.

God has blessed me with some WONDERFUL people in my life!

God has blessed me with WONDERFUL friends 

Have you ever stopped for a moment and said a thank you to God for all the wonderful people that he has placed in your life. I truly believe that you should. At least remind yourself of these blessings as often as possible. God has really blessed me to know some WONDERFUL people in my life. 









One of the GREATEST joys I have encountered in my military travels has been relationships that I have developed with friends. Most of the people who are in my life are military wives and they are all awesome in their own way. They have each touched my life and made it better in such a fantastic way. I really do mean that. I have such great memories of them.









Friendships of any kind are a gift from God. Having a friend that understands you and loves you makes your heart feel so full and their love is simply incomparable in my mind. I spend a lot of time sharing with my friends and letting them know just how important they ar…

PRAYER FOR FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH

Most of us are struggling to pay the mortgage... Most of us are struggling to pay our children's tuition. We work hard and yet we are constantly coming up short.....
I submit to you today that all of that can change through the power of prayer and a positive attitude. I personally believe that prayer has changed the circumstances in our home.




I believe that communication, prayer and honesty within a marriage, is key to maintaining financial freedom.












Secrets tend to destroy a relationship.








So sit down today with your spouse and openly discuss all financial matters in your house. When you pray talk to God about your finances.




Here is a prayer that we use in our home.


Hope this can help to strengthen your family and enable you to be at peace concerning your finances:




PRAYER FOR FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH




Father God, you are the source of all my sustenance. So I come to you today in prayer and I pray for you toHEAR ME AND GUIDE MEin your infinite wisdom.

My spirit is full, but my wallet is always…

Happy First birthday to the BEST GRANDSON ever....

I NEVER KNEW HOW MUCH LOVE MY HEART WOULD HOLD, UNTIL I BECAME A GRANDMOTHER FOR THE FIRST TIME....

Our family has been BLESSED with a NEW grandson. His name is Cameron and he is the most beautiful baby in the world. He has a smile that melts your heart and a laugh that is contagious. The first time I laid eyes on him, I loved him. I never knew how much love my heart could hold before our grandson was born. 













We are about to celebrate his first birthday and we are excited about the AMAZING future for the newest member of the Campbell family. Look at that face....
I hold him in my arms and I remember when my own kids were small and full of wonder. Grand kids are such a blessing and I plan on spending as much time as I can spoiling this beautiful baby (Smile)






THIS WAS A PERFECT MOMENT IN TIME






We love our kids and we hold them close to our hearts, but these grand kids tug a little harder and they make you forget how to say no (Smile) Where is my brain today? Is that a good thing or am I just …

I am finally Finding the strength I need to be strong as my youngest child Patrick prepares to step into his destiny!

Find the strength to be strong as your child prepares to step into their new chapter. I know that this will be extremely hard but you can do it. Remember to pray, pray and pray some more until you feel that peace that will allow you to let your child head out the door. Love them and let God carry them to this new and exciting phase. Remember you did so much from them. You bandaged their scrapes. You held them during bullying and you instilled all the right ingredients that will make them equipped for this college life (Smile) Its going to be OK.

Sometimes as parents we feel helpless and then God reminds us that he has it all under control!

Sometimes as parents we feel helpless and then God reminds us that he has it all under control! I have three children and one of them, my daughter is in college. She lives in Tallahassee Florida. I guess its about three hours away. I love and miss her so much but I know that she has a good head on her shoulders. My daughter has so much on her plate. Working, student government, her Sorority and studying. She spends most of her days away from her apartment and usually shrugs in after dark. That is where I worry. A beautiful young girl coming home at night but she assures me that she is strong and able to handle anything that comes her way. She said mom I got this, I told her no. God has it. (Smile)
