Going to church is an IMPORTANT part of the Christian home. It builds a strong community of believers around your family that helps your children to know God in a tangible way. When they see the other families at Church, it helps them to see that they are not the only family who believes. They can look around and say, “We are not the only ones who believe. So do the Jones’s, the Bailey’s and …”
“Let us not neglect meeting together, as some have made a habit, but let us encourage one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching” Hebrews 10:25.
I remember going into my daughter's room night after night and kneeling beside her bed and crying my heart out to God because I didn’t know how to be a Christian mom; I felt like I had no idea what I was doing. You know what? God is so faithful! He answered me and simply said, “Spend time with me, Deb.” And so I did. I began arising 15-30 minutes earlier each day so I could read my Bible and pray, and plan out my day with my family.
If there was one thing I would love to share with you is that God is personal and loves you as you are. You don’t have to be perfect to be loved by our amazing God! Come as you are! His loving presence can be practically known and experienced. He is not a God who is far away, He is near and easily found. He longs for you to come to Him!
