Covenant Eyes Internet Monitoring & Accountability
Online purity is a must for Christian families, not just to protect our kids but to keep our marriages safe as well.
Our family has used Covenant Eyes for over 6 years now and it is the best internet filtering and accountability on the market, bar none. Covenant Eyes not only filters out the bad stuff but it sends you a weekly log of all apps and sites your kids accessed (or attempted to access) so that you can know exactly where they go (and how long they spend) online. Covenant Eyes works on phones, tablets and laptops--all their devices.
I can't say enough good things about Covenant Eyes! It's something every family needs in their home to keep everyone safe and accountable online. Go here to learn more.
This awesome devotional from my dear friends the Kerchevals goes deep on important topics that matter to Christian couples (everything from forgiveness to communication issues to sex).
With three sections in each devotion (including a Bible verse, “Converse & Reflect” questions, and a sample prayer), Consecrated Conversations encourages couples to discover intimacy in marriage like never before.
We all have questions about how to have better sex in a Christian marriage, and we need a central place where we can go to (discreetly) discover clean answers about sex (without running into porn or erotica).
And that, my friends, is why I wrote this post. I've gathered these incredible Christian sex resources that give insight into the top questions many Christian couples have about sex and intimacy in marriage.
This is one of the most popular posts on the site and it’s loaded with amazing resources on marital intimacy! Don’t miss this list of the best Christian sex resources.
I developed this course because I saw so many of us trapped by mommy anger (and all the baggage that goes with it—guilt, damaged relationships, etc).
This powerful course with 7 video teachings and 50+ pages of homework is what I recommend for anyone facing the very-real issue of mommy anger. Listen, as a mom of four kids, you can bet I have dealt with mommy anger! I understand it, and I have found freedom from it. This course shares those awesome strategies—strategies that work.
If you have kids, then you have school papers and memorabilia everywhere in your home. You know--those adorable coloring pages and other school projects that you want to keep for the future (but have no idea what to do with now)? LOL
Enter the My Memory Box™ solution. Seriously this easy way to organize kids' school papers saves me so much time (and eliminates the piles)!
The My Memory Box™ System not only organizes my kids school papers on an ongoing basis, but it naturally creates a beautiful school memory box for each child for the future. A win-win for any busy mom.
Looking for some good books to read? Whether you want to find books to help you grow deeper in your faith or you’re looking for a great fiction book, these are the books that have challenged and stretched me (or have just been excellent and entertaining).
I love all of these and I recommend them regularly!
Grace Goals is an excellent, Christian goal-setting course that I highly recommend from my friend Arabah Joy. This 48-page resource teaches that God's grace is not just an abstract concept that we call upon when we need forgiveness but instead a practical, powerful tool essential for successfully setting and completing goals.
She describes grace this way in the Grace Goals course: "Grace is the power of God. It is more than God’s forgiveness when we do wrong... it is God’s enablement to do right. Grace is what has the power to transform a person’s life."
If you've been looking for a grace-centered, Bible-based way to meet your goals, check out Grace Goals here.
