Families United in Parenting

As our parenting series draws to a close, we all learned alot, shared alot and prayed for stronger homes in our churches and our communities. As parents we are the ultimate living example of Christ to our children. We are the ones to model love, kindness and servanthood to them. If we are modeling the opposite of that (yelling, anger, etc.) then we should not be surprised when the seed we have planted grows up and mature into such. Parents have a high calling to raise up children who are mighty in spirit, love the Word, serve and take the Gospel to the lost. We must perservere in training our children and raising them up as arrows of light to bring glory to our Lord. God will keep His word when he says that if we are careful to discipline and train our children that later it will produce a harvest of righteousness!

The Devine family lead worship as a ministry and as a team to bring praise to our King!

The Fuentes girls play hymns 'Ode to Joy' and 'Amazing Grace' on their violins.

We enjoyed a Q & A time with Daniel and Herb Devine as they responded to questions about how a dad can keep his sons heart and how children can keep their hearts turned towards their parents as stated in the Book of Malachi and Luke. What helpful insight!

"I'm glad my parents are here! I know they are trying to be the best parents they can be!"

Parents get vision, encouragment and support at HomeBuilders.

Stephen, who is seven, ran our book table with his siblings. We sell a variety of CD's ( also some past HB'ers teachings), books and magazines that promote the Biblical home.

We got a chance to meet little Alesi Rodriquez and here is a picture of her! Isn't she a doll? Welcome to the world, Alesi!
