As I scroll through the photos stored on my phone I see that they are arranged in moments. Each of these moments represents a slice of my life that I deemed worthy to record in pictures. Reflection of times past reveals that life happens moment by moment. Each of these segments of time are worthy of our gratitude and acknowledgment of God. The truth is, however, that as we scroll through life our Heavenly Father is often left out of the picture.
Faith Feedings…12 principles to nourish your child’s spiritual development was written to bring God Into the Moment in the lives of your children and families. The Back Cover of Faith Feedings says it best:
“We can’t rely on culture, education, technology, or government to build a heritage of faith in our offspring. Faith Feedings is a study of wisdom from the Bible that reveals what is right in God’s eyes, to help you cultivate godliness and integrity in your home. Through twelve Faith Feedings, which progress from ‘milk’ to ‘solid food,’ (Faith Feedings) communicates insight and encouragement for mothers and other close family mentors to be fully engaged in the assimilation of the Word of God into their children’s hearts and home life. This book includes practical and creative activities for integrating Scripture into the everyday lives of children.
(Faith Feedings) is essential reading for mothers, mothers-to-be, and anyone who hopes to mentor a child, grandchild, niece, nephew, or any other young person in her sphere of influence. You can cultivate a child’s conscience toward God!”
After reading Faith Feedings a dear Pastor and friend told me that I made one mistake with my book—“You didn’t write it to fathers!”

“Small numbers make a difference to God. There is nothing small that God is in.”
D.L. Moody, 1837-1899.
After that whole generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation grew up, who knew neither the Lord or what he had done for Israel (Judges 2:10) Bring God Into the Moment today! Deem Jesus worthy of your courage and boldness to make Him known to the next generation.
OPP (opportunity for action): It is my dream to see gatherings of women exploring Faith Feedings in communities across America. To this end, I have written the Faith Feedings Study Guide. This valuable “faith in the next generation” tool has been made available on http://faithfeedings.com. It can be found on the BOOKS or RESOURCE pages. Fall is quickly approaching. Invite your friends and neighbors to join you in a Biblical parenting experience. It is no small thing to encourage mothers to do for their children what is right in God’s eyes. You are the perfect one to change the faith landscape of your community. As always, I am available as a practical and prayer resource. Bring God Into the Moment on your street!
