I can't wait either clearly can be excited and what we can talk on today what you focused on talking about how do we get engaged hardly make a difference readily not our precious treasures began to think like children. How do we keep our family living in the same direction.

When so many are being fractured and torn apart 12 that we place our love when you said treasure Connie my daughter now love my son to Christian love you with all my heart.

I've always called my my daughter and I will always say she was using every time going to rub but I like a liquid. Albert radio broadcast actually and separate Internet me anything you want to go around your shell like you got your note I got my question why mentioned one time child learn to stay under the radar and tire life by that we want, we should have a relationship with one relationship with, and when you talk about your daughter and how you feel are the treasure God's children are a treasure. I think Sunday not much, however, that doesn't change what God said. Then how we should be like Vicki was sure it was 15 years we so really was a pleasure meeting you know all the struggle of people will treasure it even when it happened but you seem today and talk about how the family when you told me going to talk about it reminded me, you know, our family was military family and a real team mentality of military family family often on the wrong thing based. They referred her family came. Scores are returned both talk about family really body. What a team is as a family room. Sorry, but when you're talking about. What is great that you got my Military family and my father military 20 years and I still get calls from people that he served with to keep up with each other so you bringing the fact that military family through the treasure together your fear moving from place to place country country called me their current people and and change the culture shock and transmission but there's a consistent thing I want you here and not it people you're doing.

I plan on taking Chris I I'm not actually my husband and my children are all happy and place for unlimited big cities that we have in our team here and I like to export daywear identifier. They wear the same Jerry jersey uniform out whatever it is in the military you think you got me. You are exactly the same crank.

It means that we are identifying at core needs to kidnap their facing their facing backup.

The second at the culture shipping which is what culture engagement can be all about the recent New York City subway shooting on their feet and they built the laws that California Gov. or placed on their flock around the world with wealth and creek creek rocking there so much belief that are pulling our children away from what let's say you represented the family so that they can make team there on the same team there playing with each other, meaning there's a point guard, basketball, baseball, yet picture a guy capturing at first, second, third, fourth outfielder on the bench you come to the coaches that have a unified preventive to run the race.

God has before them as a family unit as a team with one objective and not to get the score. It can be done in a family.

It's not you, trying to beat other you want to learn to play the game together where you know each other's strengths and weaknesses and you do not marginalize them between that you encourage each other's strength. The picture to be a great catcher. They make catch up. Maybe God the role has a perfect plan to have the job a little purpose and frankly you can't play the game without well, at least without the catcher in the picture you need me on first base. Like you know content on every one of them have to be viewed as your children are in your family on purpose for a purpose and we have to come together with the shared DNA shared last name, name, address, or what ever is binding your family together made it to share with the same risk mindset crank that we are a family made up of unique value standard lease conviction and that's what goes into making a team that a difference between a team becoming a great success. Holiday play together sabotage each other there for each other any and again I basketball my kids were about the players in soccer player in a basketball yet here point guard is out there shooting at three point there's always somebody and what their goal to catch ball. If the shooter messes the shop and on a team crank there have to be each other looking out for one another, protecting, defending, caring for affirming believing in all key elements of what you talking about this show is brought to you by generous jokes.

I'd like to invite Ray sharing his strategies to help you navigate like enjoy a good shot at high noon on this day April 22, 1889 began the famous Oklahoma land rush within nine hours of 2 million acres became the private property of settlers who staked a claim writing as fast as they could. Many found plots already taken by some individuals with enter the territory sooner than was permitted. The remaining land was assigned to various Indian tribes join together in approving the Constitution of the state of Oklahoma in 1907. The preamble begins invoking the guidance of Almighty God secure perpetuate blessings transcript All-American one was probably talking about family issues and they were talking about how your family can build you here. We need to identify as a family we need to maintain the same goals might be different positions in which each individual share what is your story rose across the world of somebody being on the bench but we need to play together. We encourage our strength and help others when we have weaknesses we need to find our purpose and family came on our unique values and beliefs and convictions and played together all my short fat guy look like it mailed years ago I was a rustling for my wife ever told you she was three, All-American, world softball players or sheiks, team mentality, but when I was in the eighth grade I wanted to play basketball so bad audience and when you said that on the bench.

Think about that and I was terrible long employee to my basketball clear was was 41 seconds, but I have his girlfriend not been completely honest with her about my position.

She made her believe that all of the software of the basketball team bench and that one day I'll look across the gym floor and she walked into a game that I was in big trouble multi-to be regular church basketball team. Jesus was "walking the gym. I jumped up and begged him to get them again. Big game and finally getting the ball going to somebody other ball they threw the ball into Archie and threw it to me so I got a real problem is I don't how to dribble dribbling. I go to the goal that is blocking me. I think we got a miracle you just put me in the game right assured came in the gym you given me the ball.

I can do back in school and I never made shots and brought his or any other time a miracle continues greater big miracle culminates in that I think Michelle Valeo school Jane Connie the other career. The other thing that make me thinking all I had to get up off the bench a big coach to pick me up again and as you mentioned in our first Connie. Even though we all make up a team sometimes or somebody in the family was sitting on the bench many times is older, choosing to sit on the bench and sometimes sadly parents and we got to get in the game and want to get a game for family because we can't help the team contributing to the important that we have located your family all copyright. What a great segue into thoughts on the team.

You know you eat it at that thing on the bench are still part of the team. That means your role in that particular situation situation.

One particular situation where your job is to cheer on one of the other players. The software on the core of water or child, or a great job or good job you're cheering him on from the bench are still part and parent. One of the ways you build a team. That goal and you got that goal together yet to define the goals you have to define what we think for mom and dad saying okay this is who we are. Okay guy get into that no established the rule together with the Lord based on difficult principal and he met not everybody can have the same ability that you have to accept that there are imperfection. You have to trust each other. You have to communicate the true me. I you wanted to need that you needed to get you to the coach coach put you in there. Maybe he scored pretty and again that wasn't your intention is still out to help your team i.e. boundary you have to focus on knowing each other and being consistent rules of the game. I really want to understand we we have to have rule in our family we have to have parameters boundaries limit the federal should not rule on and when we think about what is going on in our families and the influences that are coming on. If you want your children to listen to you and you have to practice the art of listening easily to them, need to listen to what's happening in their heart what's happening in there with her friend Grace what's happening in full how they're feeling how the practice thing the world around them because as a team.

It takes a lot of practice to get good at and as you said Chris some time with mom and dad there distracted by the cares of life. Maybe they're trying to put it on the table In the Bank and there they're just dropping by all of that current and I think it'll a lot of team practice families that are truly in Christ that the kids are not on the thinking is not going the same direction. Parents don't have the incline that they wish they had or even the influence of the children need. But the truth is so much of what happened in our family is the result of our parenting and not guilt or shame like a parent right now. This listing to realize that we probably typically practice our parenting on how we were packing that with the model I think Chris thought maybe it wasn't in your case is I heard your story a little bit is allotted family.

They didn't have a great model. They didn't come from a Christian upbringing. They don't know what God's word said. Donnie don't know children how to play the game of life for how to interact with their siblings know how to interact with mom and dad go there all what we teach and train, which is why in Deuteronomy God is teaching trust treat teach and train your children the way they should go when they are old they want to part. You have to be diligent and faithful to teach your kid mom and dad, grandma, grandpa listing ministry worker.

If you are actively teaching them somebody else's. If you're not constantly modeling what that looked like Chris, people are losing role at the start with the family this, just starting your older short, you're just starting your family you directly to Jim's body language used by your new parents can begin to do their family will always feel like you know like I know the feeling I was roaring to military make a big deal, and I have sure your team a day, all with your kids. I wish we had done this when our kids were smaller, not that we didn't always create a family try to create a family unit that worsen the school. This appearances are starting a family can you imagine we need to have rule games you play by rules and values are losing family, parents can do that will create an team atmosphere.

When the beginning of the beginning of the maybe if you imagine the commercial break. We talk about what we did do that beginning so we got together now that's great person for not pray pray for you can't play with your kids pray over your Family. Let your children know who you are and what you stand for the family where a family that trust each other where family that speaks on the chapter and is on in our dealings with one another. Where family who believe we appreciate each other. We serve one another. We care for each other we defend and protect each other from the bullying or whatever might come their way.

When children know that there's three and a family unit that is accordingly for your kid but it also what God is God made a nice children want to know where they belong belong in your family.Clay format whether adoption, foster care through birth.

There their place. Therefore purpose on Parker at that year can their identity is found in the family, not in the school not in the teacher not in the culture not on tick-tock on not only social media platforms found within the family unit and that the family is a haven, a place that is secure done under fundamentally key so get ready for the next segment I want to cut it close with death. Family is built on trust.

If mom and dad. They are going to do something to it. If you don't do it. Give your children a reason why automated car broke down and you are able to take in the back to basketball practice or baseball practice. You unable to do something that you're going to get. Failure to do something do it if you and make sure you're capable of doing that which you say you're going to don't promise Valley less than 15 others. No money for that doesn't ultra respect that your children have you checked teacher children to respect you be reliable. Children need reliability are they need. That's where that safety and security comes them and your children need to know that you care deeply for them. Not today. Not and how to look for reform how to behave, how to get along with her siblings how they clean the bathroom or clean. Whatever it is, pick up the closed they are cared for and loved.

Because they are God made him to be not from external factors that make sense states.

America has a strong Christian heritage, most Americans don't know the truly important role God and the Bible is radio host and founder of America foundation, Dr. Chris, or maybe days in our nation's capital with Crystal embark on a journey of discovering the hidden and rediscover much of America's Christian heritage up close and personal look and how it evolved over the centuries learn about the government and the men who helped forge this new kind of Republic wanted to acknowledge the creator from its very inception the truth about the creation of about the fate of the mounting father Christian principles governing America secure your spot to join this this show is brought to you by generous Joe's coffee company with the Christian perspective, this is the answer that Christians and conservatives have been looking for a coffee company that gives back to causes you care about.

You need to find your unity in Jesus Christ and in your family about social media for Junior Satish school to be kicked out or something else in his family loves him of the family is safe and secure place and how we need to be parents. We need to be reliable, while kids need to know that we care deeply for you and there has to be trust in the Guardian our own family because you were going to come because if you work different places you which is not a good situation of the reality of the world will mechanically live together all I a lot of conversation need to be one of the communication is localized in your particular, we need to always be in sync with your situation, family, work on his mom to get really bad one is to always communicate the same age as you like.

Vicki Gorka maybe we are stable talking mom we make a decision that is safe, talking the talk about trust and without liability.

We haven't always been a good job of what we found out very early on, don't you want to go, something you can't lose. You will probably not do it on their mortgages, becomes a problem when you make promises to children or even to your spouse, you don't follow through on promises that level of trust is no one's missed trust energy family: what safe. Families gaining jeopardy to be a big deal situation will not first thing will trust in the family unit operating as a family 14 minimal not affected the very purpose God created you to be effective for them not to shine a light credit God in your family does not mean craft. I get that a lot, especially by rev. John the book is typically geared toward 1520 years from grade actually have the biggest struggle is easy when our children are less than when our children are little and were building it because work with lunch and think we have an idea we know where we would like to see our family calendar. I know we talked about this before, and Michelle where we had A vision for your kids contained a picture of the abilities that a lot of family picture they had when they were holding that little one when they were teaching that child to ride a bike or attacking them completely in the bed at night and it was beautiful, yet admit moving at the meltdown, but nothing compared to the middle, marking the mysterious marvelous middle school years for me no drink document Time in the got get blurry or the dream they had not actually panning out, and they can help and I and I know you would agree with this. I got in the restoration.

There is even restore the broken. He read the he redeemed at the Locust for Eaton that if your relationships are not what you want them to be to say when your children you broken the trust mom and I gave you nothing good for your word, you'd maybe been heavy-handed when you shouldn't and you didn't come back and say hey I'm really sorry I actually was wrong.

He always had to be right course always have to be right at the very difficult place for child care to live and thrive and your family is not over and done, you can rebuild, you can restore and you can make something that you can build it back longer and that the work of the Holy Spirit working in your family have to start with rack to start with a desire for reconciliation and restoration have to have to start with humility and I need to say something. Krista, this is really important. When I touched on this in the earlier statement about women. We apparently we were parented what we now that's why we look at the many parenting magazines were we watch them a pot at the honeypot. Capt. followed your duties Google searches for three quick to solve the momentary problem. Problem is, Chris, in order to build back what has been broken.

We have to be willing to make an clerkship course corrections in our own life like you and Vicki you and the family.

Your family knew that this is our life, we are in the military, which means to be separated for long. The time got work to that you can still have a close family through that. Why because it got me what you you Vicki were on the same page with and were not connected to the really good at figuring out they have to make up your married or if you're divorced you listening to this year. Now they no other place I got it… I asked mom if they know that daddy yeah and time canceled plans against each other in order to get what they want because their wretched awful people know the kid trying to get what they want by money that we've we've got to deal with women hurt people do hurt people and if you were raised in a family that was. The work area. It was their way or the highway or maybe it was very permissive and or maybe it was very legalistic whenever your family what family of origin you got to be mindful that practical point good and healthy and that God can redeem and change. You then you go to your children and you say that in the beginning excitement.

Chris Young communicate you go, you can't think of I am doing the best I can.

I am an imperfect parent and I'm writing an imperfect child and an imperfect marriage. Let all you work together and build a family that's going to do life together can be damaging to your natural system for parents to Christian unity. People from all Christian families, but for whatever reason start off right Gmail later got to go and change your we all know that's when things are scheduled trying to file their unique nation away from the family and so do you think your way. Sorry if we have recommended already in their weekly overview was that we got Sherry try to get her life together and we want to created team unit after I we do that when we are family environment has been horrible maybe painful things to consider with your brother, you corporately might not like coming home to bed now. Mom and different and we turn it into a team that Trinity. Oh, that's a great question if the flow path that you know think about a ship going off shift that's headed out. You can't hear a ship standing at the dock yelling at you can't demand that your children only believe you your respect you want to listen to you or actually might be around you there at the screensaver. Think about the Lord, the Lord delights in the light and when we are walking with him. He delight the little things like parenting Monday and confident that the tedious process that beauty is what your children are walking with the Lord, whether they know the Lord. And if you're a new believer, you want to contact your kids done things wrong asked him to forgive you and then tell them I'm going to be making some changes.

Please be patient with me. I love you I love you unconditionally.

God loves us unconditionally at agape love is the deep abiding love is not based on your actions or attitudes is based on his God made you to be. You tell your children not happen.

I maybe I haven't been very loving.

Maybe I haven't even been lovable and maybe you haven't been very loving or lovable but I love you and that's not going to change.

I'm going to get rid of the hindrances that keep me from loving you and putting up walls and get half-day you start slowly dismantling the walls and trust that you have or lack of faith that II want to show you that I can be respected that are family candidates and I'm to be praying and consequently let your kids Krista through the little thing for the little act of showing your children that you love them and that God loved them not beating him over the head work that pushes them away at it, especially the children are already in rebellion, or rejecting you. We we want to be like the Lord and that is week paper.

We want them to delight in the way that they learn to delight in us as we are delighted we look specifically for the things they're doing that are praiseworthy not they will finally get cleaned up your RAM I'm sorry that's not going to cut it when you're trying to gain the heart of your children. I do not know many team to strive for approval from disapproving parent want their affirmation for parents, specifically from your children from your love for their children. Be humble. They apologize when you need to apologize your children were going to be making some course correction. You understand trust or respect has been broken. Maybe you haven't been reliable.

Maybe you haven't cared for their needs maybe had intended to their heart, but you're asking the Lord to right the wrongs that had been done and you're asking them to work with you and to please forgive you and to work with them as a parent that we can become the family before they grow up and go away and maybe are disconnected and distant uncle talking about how to google the family team today.

I'd like to invite Ray sharing his strategies to help you navigate like enjoy the United States of America has a strong Christian heritage, most Americans don't know the truly important role God and the Bible is this you radio host and founder of America foundation, Dr. Chris, or maybe days in our nations capital with Crystal embark on a journey of discovering the hidden and rediscover much of America's Christian heritage up close and personal look and how it evolved over the centuries learn about the government and the men who helped forge this new kind of Republic wanted to acknowledge the creator from its very inception the truth about the creation of about the fate of the mounting father Christian principles governing America secure your spot to join this will like you lately about what we thought of ongoing love done well so your relationship helpful for.

Thank you for your ministry to reach out to families podcast equipped to be booking all that you do all the rules of working on new book out of going for long. Thank you for the great advice you were talking about why – you will see teenagers rebuilding just great about who taught all we need to work in the county committee like barley offers yellow like usual market really really bad temper by giving notice to love everyone.

I knew I was keeping it in check and document community your own first real please place all the little change, and even though we love and sometimes will tell them about proud of them. You were talking about earlier is usually to skip over things and we really need to a formal acute, teenagers, and maybe you have time you can talk about how to keep your expert is right next to you. To keep the team together all one still wants to Millie's own Sheldon to give her all about teenagers calling you going to be ready along generational midget.

Vicki played softball Vicki Ruggiero. She was a shortstop when she got older she and your team has many different positions used to show all talking about and she didn't have the agility or wearable when she was in her 30s that she did when she was ready to be sure Stephanie more on the level she social change positions and became a picture of your cases and her family were sometimes been a pleasure position and we need to shift position your take-home walls. I think you read my book. Yeah yeah as your child grows in and matures on the dynamics of your relationship change you mom and dad, caregiver, parent, grandparent, as you learn more. As you work through your own will on your own baggage per se, then you mom and dad as your keen start to grow and change. He's got to change with them. It doesn't mean you're wishy-washy but you know you know because he does not handle gathered. That said, you know, 10-year-old have to be in bed by 8 o'clock. What mom and dad died or 15-year-olds are allowed to be out till 10 or 11, they may want to be out till one or they may not want to come home at all. We sat at the mom and dad is a lobbying parent who is looking after the well-being were carrying well for our children to go. I don't know any parent that wants to start off being a really bad parent. Most of them want to be a really good parent and then they start failing, and make it and you don't know a way change as you children go change your job.

It's not that there spring, and in your listeners ran back down there spring independent there spring independent mean that you're getting to something like Dan or your letting go of the need to chair acknowledging the fact the nature of the relationships are changing formally like he said with Vicki you how to acknowledge okay that you got understand yearly or limitation, the budget will dictate what you can do the physical ability will dictate what you can do the age of your head. Their desire to be around or not be around the personality, their temperament, all other factors that we can better when we are willing to pay that and not by way definitely be really clear on the doesn't mean that every day we just would like a wave going in and out every day.

The kids never know what to get together means that are happy to get them on strict on rule today are the mom like I don't care to do whatever… What a picnic need to do is wear a family to people and to save the child could clean and the parent or parents. They come to you and they really say hey I am doing this than them.

And I feel like you're not I feel like you don't trust me you don't mean you won't you treat me like a little kid I heard that a lot can and I would always say, well, free. Granted, there is no there is no place in anywhere that you have freedom to do Apsley anything you want to do at any given time were all under authority thing money you can't drive whatever you want. You can't crash interesting on you can't go and commit against other people, or even to get your stuff with out a consequence until when were laying the foundation Chris with their kid.

I can't children come July 13 and say listen, I think I've been faithful EE my curfew at 1030. I'm asking the party just get on my current menu due to whatever it is Lord granddaughter you pray about it. I'm getting paid.Harry and pray about it and let the Lord speak. Here's what happened there faith grow because you're sending them to go to a living act of God works in the world who will work to change our heart there faith and think basically you pray about it.
