[display_podcast] God has used my wife and son to reveal things to me that are within me that I didn’t have a clue were there. For instance, I thought I was a gentle and nice person until my son brought out anger issues in me that I wasn’t ever aware of. He was able to get me angrier than anyone else on earth by the time he was just three-years-old! God said, “It’s not your son, Craig… it’s Me.

Pam Thumbnail Big

[display_podcast] Each of us should continue to learn to love each other as Christ has loved us.  And, I can’t think of a better place to learn how to really love than in a stepfamily.  It’s a daily choice to choose to love others as God has loved us.  It’s a growing process but that process begins with wanting to please God by loving the ones He has sent us.  And that always begins with our family whether it’s blended or not.  You and I both chose to marry our spouses and we knew they had kids. … [Read more...]

Family Discipleship Ministries Mini Cast Square

[display_podcast] If you go into marriage with the wrong expectations, you’re going to have problems. Think about it: Imagine if you went out and spent $30,000 on a new car, and because you spent so much money, you have the expectation that this car is going to look and run as good as the day you bought it for at least 20 years. You assume that you don’t have to put gas in it – for $30,000, that baby better run!   You don’t have to put oil in it, it’ll never need new brakes, nor tires; you’ll … [Read more...]
