Teaching Children How to Behave

So much of this video has to do with SELF-CONTROL and RESPECT.

Each month I teach women in my home at a gathering called “Cultivate.” I share about real life experiences of raising six kids and seek to base it on scripture. I hope each time I speak that you see transparency and experience encouragement, laughter, and conviction. My desire is for immediate application into your own heart first and then intentional parenting to honor Christ.

Below is the video from November’s Cultivate. You can also find it, along with other Cultivate videos for FREE on my VIDEO page.  Watch in its entirety or in segments as you can. Share with your friends. Watch alone, with your spouse, with friends, your church group, or gather together some neighbors, make coffee and a dessert and use as a time to build friendships while growing in your walk with the Lord.
