2:35 One Year of Dinner Table Devotions & Discussion Starters

helps families start where they are already gathered together on a daily basis―around the dinner table. As the meal comes to a close, family members can take turns turning to the dinner-table devotion for that day, designed to be done together as a family in 10 to 15 minutes. The result is a meaningful daily discussion in which every family member can participate, drawing the whole family closer to God . . . and each other.

This is a great resource for maps and timelines. It’s great to help kids (and adults!) visualize their study of the Bible. They also have an app (iOS & Android).

There’s a great article by Christina Fox over at TGC called “5 Reasons to Read Missionary Biographies to Your Children”. Check out her article and suggestions of missionaries to start reading about with your kids.

20:05 Ten Questions

Tom Ellif, Tom Elliff, former president of the Southern Baptist Convention has published several resources for family. Among “10 Questions to Ask Your Wife Every Year” and “10 Questions to Ask Your Husband Every Year”. These are GREAT resources from Family Life. You can download 10 Questions parents should ask their children every year. As Jeff explains in the video, parents ask these questions and allow their children to answer without comment. So that removes arguing and for the need for defensiveness!

21:44 The Talk

If we want our children to know the truth about healthy sexuality, we need to create a comfortable climate of continual conversations. This book will show you how to move beyond the initial awkwardness of this subject into an ongoing communication with your kids about God’s amazing gift of sex. He equips you with what you need to talk openly about dating, temptation, porn, and purity, and you will find answers to tough questions and relevant Scripture on sexual issues.

We want to hear from you! What resources are you using that works?

 

What Is God’s Will for My Life?

This week was a special time at Gateway. At both the Atoka and the Munford Campuses, we took time to recognize our High School Seniors who will be graduating this month. This is usually a time when students really question what God’s Will is for their lives. Today, Steve answers that question.

Desire vs. Conviction

There is a difference between wanting to trust God and being convinced you CAN trust Him. In today’s message, we take a look at the life of Abraham and his journey through that gap.

Do This.

At some point, every believer reaches a time in their journey with Christ when they feel they are going backwards. Or plateaued — just not growing in their walk with Jesus the way they know they should.

It’s can be a repetitive pattern of  valleys and mountain tops.  This process can be  frustrating and discouraging.  There is a way to end this cycle!

In a brand new series, “Do This.”, we’re going to examine the things will lead to consistency. By practicing the spiritual disciplines, we aren’t trying  to “feel” better or to check a spiritual box.  Like 1 Timothy 4:7 says: …“discipline yourselves for the purpose of Godliness”.  Do this. Put yourself in God’s path. Allows the Holy Spirit to do the work in your life that He desires.

Not Ashamed

Baptism. It’s so important that we understand what Baptism is all about. It’s not necessary for our salvation. But, it is of great importance! In fact, it is a public declaration of a new association. In today’s message, Steve talks about what it means to be NOT ASHAMED of our identity in Christ.
