To EQUIP you as parents…
A bit of support: "Parenting is a challenging, delightful, heart-wrenching journey that can feel profoundly overwhelming and lonely at times. Parents need guides who understand the world of their children." If you find yourself feeling lonely or overwhelmed, check out the Raising Boys and Girls website - with podcasts like this one about the effect of covid on kids.
A bit of inspiration: Need a story from a fellow parent to inspire you? Read Fearfully and Wonderfully Mended and learn about what one mom learned about grace through mending a pair of shorts.
To ENRICH you in your walk with Christ...
A bit of solidarity: Have you heard of the Midnight Mom Devotional? It's a mother-daughter team and they post a prayer on facebook/Instagram each night. Whether you need prayer or want to join in praying for other parents, it's a great place to find some encouragement.
A bit of powerful support: This spring ACSD is launching Moms in Prayer Revamped for both campuses, an opportunity for all moms to connect with God and each other through prayer. We all know prayer can make a difference, and Moms in Prayer provides a way for us to make prayer a habit in our lives. Check out the video above to learn more and click here to sign up.
To help you ENGAGE with your kids...
Pieces of family history: Looking for a new show with a combination of fun, inspiration and a bit of British culture? This Netflix series with its heartwarming stories and incredibly talented repair work could be the ticket. Check it out and see what you think!
A bit of imagination: Maybe all of us could use something to look forward to these days. If that's you, check out Longwood Reimagined, a new garden experience like you've never seen before. It just might be something your whole family can anticipate together and enjoy watching the plans unfold.
