“There is a spiritual battle raging in our children’s hearts daily. With 66% of young people walking away from today’s churches, we cannot afford to be complacent, hoping everything will turn out okay. We have to be aware of the battle, and determine to do all we can to point our kids to God, and His Word, giving them a solid foundation of faith. We must also determine to purposefully pursue their hearts.” Kathie Morrissey – ‘Winning Your Child’s Heart’
Do you struggle with one or more of your children on a daily basis? Do you feel as though there is a disconnect between you and your child? Do you feel as though you are ‘losing the fight’ for your child’s heart?
If so, then read on.
I would like to introduce you to Kathie Morrissey and another one of her fantastic resources*. I have purchased many of her resources and find them all really helpful, and this one is no different.
This one is called “The Importance of Winning Your Child’s Heart – Heading off Rebellion, Restoring Damaged Relationships and Loving the Prodigal.”
It is, as the title suggests, a guide to parenting the rebellious, damaged child and restoring the relationship with that child.
In this ebook are many great tips, and some excellent advice as to how to win back the heart of your child. Kathie also speaks of signs to look out for to spot rebellion rising, for example ‘passive rebellion’.
Some of the signs of passive rebellion are:
- doing things their own way rather than how they were told
- rolling eyes etc.
“Focusing on just the outward actions when kids are young, rather than training the heart, wets us on the path to raising a rebel”. KM
Kathie goes on to say that it could be our actions that are leading our children to rebellion. How many times have we unknowingly modelled that rebellion to them? Children are like little sponges and pick up things so easily, and it seems they pick up more of our bad points than good sometimes.
Further on Kathie speaks about how to restore damaged relationships with our children.
It is so important that we win our children’s hearts while they are young. The more they move into their teen years the more they will be influenced by others, and if we haven’t laid the foundation first, it could all crumble and they will be more susceptible to peer pressure. (Especially if they attend a mainstream school environment.)
In conclusion I highly recommend this ebook. It is a valuable resource that many Christian parents would do well to have in these days. There are more and more families that are struggling against the tide and need all the help they can get to win and keep their children’s hearts in this broken world.
