Do you hate your children?
Umm...no! You say. And yet the Bible states that if we do not discipline our children we hate them!
Proverbs 13:23 Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.
Loving Biblical discipline is so not cool right now. Many, even Bible-believing Christians don't know how to discipline their children in a way that is in accordance with the scriptures.
And so our parenting pendulum swings back and forth between all love and no law, or all law and no love, and our children are caught in the whiplash.
But don't worry never fear because at Timbers we want to bless our families with a biblical parenting DVD called Getting to the Heart of Parenting. As the dad of seven rascally kids, and having been one myself, I can testify directly to the biblical wisdom gained from Paul David Tripp as he walks you through how to biblically parent your kids, plus the guy is really funny.
Our plan is to send these out to families at no cost to you, but consider it your first homework assignment. It's also great to watch with your kids, just be ready for some moments of pride swallowing!
-Please remember to send us a fun family pic, so that our prayer team can start praying for your family.
-Make sure you have filled out the Timber's Family Hour form as well Timbers Class Recommendations.
What We Are Diggin On:
-Another Summer Reading? The Sinking City. Fish people, magicians, and written by an amazing Christian Author who just happens to live in Moscow, Idaho. Doesn't get better!
-Nothing says summer and backyards like some Spike Ball! And let's just say we may have some Spike ball tournaments next year at Timbers so you'd better practice up!
