We are in the process of creating a resource center that will help strengthen our families and root them firmly in the love of God. The resource center will be called “The 6-4-9.” The resources will be accessed on our website and other places our families find helpful. All ages are invited to participate in the survey.
Please take a minute to fill out this survey. https://forms.gle/SEzGjDK4g3vrTqS29
You may be wondering…
What is “The 6-4-9”?
It is simply an attempt to help families apply the principles found in Deuteronomy 6:4-9. Namely, love the Lord with all of our heart, soul, and mind. Moses said that this love should be in your heart (not just your head), and naturally that would be demonstrated to our children as we teach them, literally, all the time. By our words and our walk. It’s as if our hearts should be so full of a knowledge and passion for God that we can’t help but spill that into the lives of our family.
Yet, what we find, for a variety of reasons is that so many families struggle to make this a reality. Consequently, causing precious souls to doubt the validity and practicality of the Lords plan. It’s not because our parents haven’t tried, or lack a desire to make it happen. So, what can you do I about it? We can shrug our shoulders, point fingers and watch family after family quietly struggle, falling short of the grace and peace God desperately wants them to experience. Or, we can wrap our hearts around them, take one another by the hand, and trust that the Lord keeps His word. When we ask for help and serve others as we wish to be served, God blesses us in unimaginable ways (Matthew 7:7-12).
Should you complete the survey if your children are grown? Yes, please!! We have suggestions…
1) If your grown children have children ask them to complete it. Or complete it for them.
2) Or complete the second half of the survey as if you went back in time when all your kiddos were young. Asking what would have been helpful. Also, any tips or advice or things that blessed your family can be left in the comments section.
God bless you and thanks so much for lending your hand to help bless our families! https://forms.gle/SEzGjDK4g3vrTqS29
All the best,
