Crystal PaineCrystal Paine is a child of God, wife, homeschool mom of three, author, and speaker. In 2007, she founded MoneySavingMom.com, a site that has since grown to become one of the most popular blogs on the web, currently averaging 1.5 million readers per month. Her mission is to challenge women in any season of life to wisely manage their time and resources and live life on purpose.
Do you struggle with how others see you as a parent? Crystal Paine guarantees that parents cannot fail if they do ONE thing.
Bob: I think what is at the heart of real love-centered parenting is wanting God’s purposes to be fulfilled in our kids. As Ann Wilson was just saying, all of us, as parents, can fall into the trap of wanting our kids to perform a particular way because of how it makes us look or makes us feel. It’s one of the ways we need to diagnose: “Just how love-centered is our parenting?”
A helpful way to diagnose that in each of us is to go through the book that Crystal Paine has written, which is called Love-Centered Parenting. This is a book we want to make available to you this week if you’re able to help support the ongoing work and ministry of FamilyLife Today. Our goal here, at FamilyLife, is to see every home become a godly home to effectively develop godly marriages and families. And you help extend the reach of this ministry every time you make a donation.
If you’re a regular listener, and you’ve never made a donation, or if it’s been a while, today’s a great day for you to go online or call us and donate to support the ministry of FamilyLife Today. And when you do, we’d love to send you, again, a copy of Crystal Paine’s book, Love-Centered Parenting, as a way of saying, “Thank you for your partnership with us.” You can donate online at FamilyLifeToday.com, or call to donate at 1-800-FL-TODAY. Again, the website is FamilyLifeToday.com; or call 1-800-358-6329; that’s 1-800-“F” as in family, “L” as in life, and then the word, “TODAY.”
Now, tomorrow, Dave and Ann Wilson are going interact with Crystal Paine about what is at the heart of real love-centered parenting. It begins with a proper understanding of how our Father God loves us. We’ll hear that conversation tomorrow. I hope you can be with us for that.
On behalf of our hosts, Dave and Ann Wilson, I’m Bob Lepine. We will see you back next time for another edition of FamilyLife Today.
