A True Story from my book Rescue the Stories Book Two
A Good Book Can Help
Besides the Good Book, (The Bible,) when my children were
just babies, I subscribed toParent’s
Magazine.I gleaned many tips and ideas
that were of tremendous help to me in those early years.
As time passed, I found a special book - - probably at a
Thrift Store; but I discovered it to be a wonderful book on raising children.
Here was an outstanding book that incorporated answers to
all sorts of behavior problems.Included
were fact-filled chapters covering various ages through the teenage years,
along with suggestions on how to cope with different and difficult problems.
During that time, we had five teenagers in our household; our
three, a brother-in-law our son’s age, and our foster daughter.Disturbing emotional problems plagued our sweet foster
daughter! I was prompted to give special
attention to her each evening.It was
ten minutes with no preaching, but rather just talking and listening.What wonderful therapy there is for others if
a person can just be a good listener!
Before entering her room, I reviewed a current chapter in
the book, and prayed asking the Lord how this would apply to her.Certain lines from the book seemed to stand
out, and were to become the answer for that evening.
Just a sentence or two, and the Lord’s direction on what
else to say next, the answer was provided for her need each evening.
Today, with children, and even with friends, using a few
moments of quality time, can work wonders!Share an encouraging thought that will bring them confidence and will
show your support!
At times, it might be a line from something you have picked
up from a book; a magazine or possibly the internet; that will carry enough
weight to bless your child or your friend.
Of course do not forget to utilize the Bible!
Ask the Lord, “What do I say next?”He may direct you to a Scripture verse that
can complement, and then completely cement the thoughts for you to share.
man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how
good it is!
