Description

You're probably checking out this podcast because you are a Christ-follower and you have kids… and you intuitively know that you’ve got a massive job on your hands. But you also see your role as a Christian parent as one of the most amazing privileges given to human beings. You get to fashion human beings into God-saturated, Christ-following, Kingdom-building individuals who make a difference in eternity… and all to the glory and praise of their Creator. And that ain't an easy job. We're here to help. Episodes are conversations about Christian parenting between retired Pastor, Carey Green and his wife of over 33 years, Mindi. They'll discuss what the Bible reveals about raising your children in a way that honors God and connects the child of your heart to the child of God. https://GodFearingKids.com

ON THIS EPISODE:

The New Testament is filled with instructions to the church (duh). And since we Christian parents are endeavoring to build homes that are centered on Christ (just like the church is), doesn't it make sense that we should be applying the instructions Jesus gives to His church, to our families?

This episode focuses on the 47 "one another" statements and how we parents can use them to better grow and equip our family members to represent Jesus in the world.

There's a free downloadable resource on this episode you can get here.

ON THIS EPISODE:

Hey parents, take a few moments to think through your growing up years. What were the different stages you went through and what were the markers in your life, those pivotal moments that you wish you had been better prepared for as parents? Do you think there are things you could do to help your kids be prepared for those same things and even more?

If we're willing to put in preparation for these kinds of things, shouldn't we be putting in at least that much effort in preparing our children for life? I mean that's really what parenting is. It's preparing our kids for life.

ON THIS EPISODE:

Every home thrives when it revolves around a sense of orderliness and the children within that home have a much greater chance of thriving as well. When we live our lives in an orderly fashion, we are imitating our Creator who does everything that He does in an orderly way. This episode lays the groundwork for order in the Christian home and challenges you to assess your needs in this area.

ON THIS EPISODE:

Hello again, parents, this is Mindi Green and I have a heart check episode today that I wanted to share with you. And I wanted to ask the question, who are you listening to for advice? As parents, I hear a lot from parents how they've read this article or they've heard this podcast or their friend told them some advice on their child. And sometimes I'm encouraged because it is good counsel that they received. But many times I'm saddened because it sounds like worldly counsel. And so I'm wanting to ask you as parents, who do you go to first when you need counsel? And my encouragement to you, my, my counsel to you today would be, God should always be your first source of wisdom and help. And as we've said in other episodes, our hearts need to be completely in 100% dependent on the Lord. And so are you going to him asking him for wisdom about the issues with your children, how to raise them, how to love them, how to teach them and train them.

What is your highest ambition in life? Honestly, take some time to seriously answer the question.

The scriptures give us God’s opinion on what SHOULD BE the highest human ambition…

Jeremiah 9:23-24 - Thus says the LORD: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, 24 but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the LORD.

This episode we’re discussing what it takes to build a heart and vision for knowing God into your kids.

ON THIS EPISODE:

Imagine that you come into a newly built home and it's your job to decorate it for the sale of the home. You have these beautifully painted blank walls. You have a wonderful open floor plan. You have all this great canvas to work on and you get to adorn this home, whatever way you want to. You have an unlimited budget. You can just do whatever you want. Now, some of you would have a lot of fun with that. And you would think of all these creative things you could do.

I bring up that illustration to put you in mind of the creative process… and to point out to you that when your child comes out of the womb, you have a blank slate. You have a blank canvas that you, as the parent are responsible to adorn with godly character and godly ways of thinking and godly perspectives on the world. They don’t know how to think, how to feel, or how to act. It’s your job to paint on that canvas with the things of God… and you do it through good communication.

012: Nine guidelines for loving spankings that benefit your child

CONTACT: 📩 feedback@GodFearingKids.com


ON THIS EPISODE:

Many adults were never spanked and others were abused. So we understand how it can be very difficult to know what a "good" or “right” spanking should be like.

Scripture assumes readers to understand what a “good” and “bad” spanking looks like… but that’s not the case anymore. This episode we want to give you some quick guidelines we've learned that will prevent you from underdoing it (not really disciplining effectively) or overdoing it (abusing your child).

011: Spanking is a good thing (not an abusive thing)
1173

FULL SHOW NOTES & RESOURCES: https://GodFEaringKids.com/011

CONTACT: 📩 feedback@GodFearingKids.com

“Spanking” is a word in parenting circles that immediately creates tension. We all understand why… there are folks on either side of the issue who have a strong opinion about the subject…

Some feel any time a parent strikes a child it’s wrong and abusive. Many of the people who feel that way were in fact abused by a parent or authority figure, sometimes even under the guise of it being a “spanking.”

Others feel spanking, done properly, is an appropriate and healthy form of discipline. What is more, they also feel that it’s supported scripturally as a method of discipline God Himself condones and encourages (when done properly).

We understand the debate, but honestly don’t care much about the arguments on either side. We’re most concerned with what God says about spanking. On this episode we’re going to walk through the primary Bible verses that support the use of spanking in parenting.

ON THIS EPISODE:

I'm sure you've heard the term and you've probably experienced the result of the phrase. One size fits all. The only thing I have ever experienced where one size really does fit all is with those professional flexible band, major league baseball type ball caps. But in most circumstances, one size does not. And that's true of parenting as well.

When it comes to the issue of DISCIPLINE, it’s especially true. Not only does discipline need to vary in consideration of age ranges and stages of life varying children are in… each CHILD will have their own unique temperament and personality to consider.

This episode, we give some general guidelines to think through when it comes to applying discipline in the variety of circumstances you’ll face as a parent.

ON THIS EPISODE:

What do you think of when you hear the word “discipline?”

Exercise? Dieting? Punishment or correction?

It’s a word that certainly has a place in all those contexts… and it’s also a word that comes into play for Christian parents almost daily as they seek to train their kids for godly living.

Don’t let the difficulties you have potentially experienced in this area make you afraid of being the “bad guy” in your kids’ eyes. You are commissioned and equipped by the God of creation to do this job… and you CAN do it. Listen to learn how we suggest you go about reframing your discipline-mindset to benefit your kids long-term.

008: Don't excuse your kids’ behavior

ON THIS EPISODE:

Recently, my 94-year old mother told me a story about how an old friend of hers dealt with her kids’ misbehavior. According to my Mom (who can tell a story, but seldom makes things up). this friend often got calls from the school that her kids were in the Principal’s office… but every time she did, according to the friend, “It’s their friends that keep getting them in trouble.”

Does that explanation sound believable to you? Or is the Mom thinking more highly of her kids’ behavior than she ought? Or is she making excuses for bad behavior for some reason?

We often hear parents excusing their child’s behavior — rudeness, shyness, disobedience, disrespect — all things that should be dealt with appropriately and swiftly. Why do parents do this and what’s the remedy? We’ll cover the issue on this episode.

Every parent comes into their role as Mom or Dad with NO experience. There’s also no step by step user’s manual to help us get our feet under us. But there are role models we can look to who can give us an idea of what we’re supposed to do as parents.

Our best role model is God Himself, our loving and perfect Father.

This episode is designed to help you think through how God parents us, His children, so that you can take the perfect example of a great Father and apply it to your role as a parent.

ON THIS EPISODE:

If I were to ask you, “Are you're willing to do whatever it takes to equip your kids to be adults who honor and love the Lord?” you'd likely say, “Yes.”

But what if I asked you this question?

“Are you willing to do whatever it takes to overcome YOUR OWN fears and insecurities and baggage, so THAT you can best equip them to be that kind of adult?” That’s a more difficult question isn’t it? It’s difficult because it’s not theoretical, like the first one, it’s real-life. It’s one we instantly realize we are answering every day of our lives… and much of the time we answer it from a place of fear… fear of our kids.

That may sound kind of strange, but there are parents all over the world who seem to be afraid to be the parent, when that's the role that God's given them. This episode, we’re talking about that… and providing you some mindsets and tools to begin moving in a new direction.

ON THIS EPISODE:

Take a little bit of time to consider this question… “What is the environment of your home like?” We’re not asking whether you have AC or heat or just open windows. We’re not asking whether or not your house is clean or dirty. What we’re talking about is the spiritual environment of your home. Is it an environment that magnifies and uplifts Jesus or one that is no different than your neighbors who don’t even know Jesus?

This is a VITAL question to answer because the environment your kids grow up in is going to DICTATE how their character develops in many regards. For that reason, this a serious issue that we’re going to take a while to unpack. It’s on this episode, so be sure you listen.

ON THIS EPISODE

Think about your day, you make your plans. You're gonna go to work and at work, you'll be doing this and that. And you might need to go to the lunch with a friend during work, the wife might be thinking, I need to go to this store. I need to take the kids to school. So you plan out your day with the things that you need to do, and it involves your car, driving you all these different places. And very rarely are you thinking of the gas that is helping the car drive. But we all know that if we don't have our tank full of gas, we're not gonna be able to do what we plan for that day, whatever it is that we're gonna do, it's kind of the same thing with prayer. 

As a parent, you have these desires and these places you wanna go with your children in your teaching and prayer is like the gas in the car. If you have not, first of all, prayed through your desires of where you're wanting to take your children of what you're wanting to teach them. It's like you're out of gas and you're not gonna be able to get there. So we wanna talk to you today about how important prayer is. It has to be a part of your life. Just like you have to have gas in your car to be able to go to work. There's not an option. So we, we wanna encourage you with this important element of your life as a parent.

ON THIS EPISODE:

We thought we should probably start out with an explanation of the title of this podcast. "God Fearing Kids and the Parents Who Raise Them - It's kind of a long name, but it has meaning behind every word.

So let's talk first off about the idea of being God fearing. That's a word or a phrase that may give some people a little bit of trouble when they hear it. Because you know, in our heart of hearts, we don't wanna be afraid of God. We feel like that's wrong to be afraid of God, because He's loving and compassionate and all those things.

 

But God himself encourages us to fear Him. This episode, we'll dive into the reason behind the name of this podcast — and explain WHY the issue of fearing the Lord is so essential to Christian parenting.
