Desperate, Chapter 12 – Living on Purpose


Jamesshow2Sally and I with James Robison on the Life Today Show

So here’s the thing, I’m having a really hard time writing today.

I just got back from Texas yesterday and it’s already 7:04am and I need to wake my babies and get the day going but I feel so bad that I didn’t do a Desperate book club post. Mind you, I’ve been up since 5:30am trying to write one, and for whatever reason, I’m out of words. I’m so sorry. So today I’m going to let Andrea take it. Here is an excerpt from her post on this chapter:

“When our children were all pre-school aged, Ken & I spent time working on intentional parenting.  We met so many parents who had elaborate systems of discipline in place for their children. Consequences. Charts. Escalating punishment.  These things aren’t wrong, but they felt one-sided.

We went in search of parents who had elaborate systems in place for what they wanted to teach their children. Instead of focusing on the discipline (what we don’t want) we wanted systems for teaching and training in righteousness (what we do want).

We came up with 5 Pitcher Family Values.”

Click HERE to head on over to Andrea’s blog and read the rest, including her 5 family values! Also, my friend Jessica posted about this chapter; you can find her post here.

Thank you for your grace.

Love, SM
