This world feels like it’s spinning faster every day. As the darkness has crept in, your brave prayers may have given way to fearful pleas that your kids would experience God’s kingdom—in a safe and comfortable way.
This generation needs heroes of the faith and your child can be one of them, but that will require you to be strong and BRAVE. You and I must call out the bold Christ followers within our children and help them face the unknown future with divine confidence.

While we might believe they will outgrow “lesser” behaviors like selfishness, lying and whining, are we willing to gamble the future of our children with our passivity? Will we skirt addressing and tending to the business of their hearts because we are tired, worn down, or distracted? What will you do, mom? #bravemomsbravekids
Heroism happens in a moment that you’ve trained for all your life. It’s a revealing of the character stored up in you that meets the moment ordained for it to be revealed to the world. Years and years of practicing faithfulness has been stored up for the time it takes a stand. Are you ready, mom? #bravemomsbravekids
I wasn’t very far into motherhood when I began to realize that some of the misbehavior and attitude problems in my kids were caused in part by the actions and attitudes of their mother. What are you modeling, mom? #bravemomsbravekids
Scripture tells us bravery is associated with true friendship. Friends must be willing to confront each other, give good advice, turn each other back from sin, encourage on another and help carry each other’s load. Those are huge responsibilities. How can we model Jesus’ perfect example of friendship to our children? #bravemomsbravekids
Our kids will never look or sound more like Jesus than when they’re valuing people with the same value system the Lord used, and sacrificially serving them out of love for the Father. Service, then, is built as we consider the needs of others and reckon we can do something about them.
Tell about a time when you witnessed your child serving sacrificially, out of love. Tell about how you model this sacrificial service to your children. Tell about a time you served or met someone’s needs as a family.

Tell about a time you chose to not be passive and instead tended to the matter at hand concerning your child. How did it turn out? How might things have been different if you had been passive?
Practicing consistent discipline is often much harder for me than it is for my own children. These are the choices we make every day to engage with our children and they are neither convenient nor fun, but they are right. So we get up and do the hard work of training our kids because that’s our job.
Tell about a time when you had to first discipline yourself before you could discipline your child. How did it turn out? How might things have been different if you hadn’t disciplined yourself first?
