Learn to "Be Still"

This commentary was delivered by Prison Fellowship president Mark Earley.

It’s hard to believe, but school is just a few weeks away. And you know what that means—hauling children to and from classes, dance lessons, music lessons, sports practice, homework, church activities, and on and on. It's no wonder that many parents (not to mention their children) get worn out

Busyness is a problem all of us face. In fact, a 2007 study asked over 20,000 teens and adults if "the busyness of life gets in the way of developing [their] relationship with God." The response? Six in 10 Christians said they are too busy for God.

Are you? That's the question which Ann Kroeker poses in her new book, Not So Fast: Slow-Down Solutions for Frenzied Families.

How to help children learn Bible doctrine

One of the questions I am asked is “how are we going to teach basic Bible doctrine to our children and grand children?” Well, I have an answer and it comes from a book that was written by Dr. Bruce Ware. The name of the book is Big Truths for Young Hearts and addresses how to teach Bible doctrine to your kids. This is a key area of Bible study and one that often overlooked by many parents. We may want to give this responsibility over to our youth pastors, but it is us that need to be training our children in these spiritual truths.

When we started our class over 18 months ago I wanted this website to be a good resource for any number of different areas within the Christian life. And over that period of time I have posted audios, videos, and articles along with links to number of different websites that hopefully have provided helpful information. Let me encourage you to check out this article which is an interview Justin Taylor had with Dr. Bruce Ware regarding his book. This is a tremendous resource and one that Bruce has put together from what he did to teach Bible doctrine to his own children.
