Today’s Encouraging Word:  “Psalm 21:13 (ESV)”

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.”

Backpacks, pencils, folders, and lunch boxes are lining department store shelves as “back-to-school” season arrives. As parents trade the carefree days of summer schedules with rushed morning school drop-offs, sports practices and PTA meetings, the thought of returning to the routine can be a bit daunting.

Danny Huerta has some suggestions to help the summer-to-school transition go smoothly! Danny is the Vice President of Parenting at Focus on the Family.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Why are routines so important for kids AND parents? Are those routines different for every family?

Should parents include their kids in the monthly planning/scheduling? How can parents make this a “fun activity”? Danny has some great ideas to get your started! Terry has some great recommendations, too!

Are family dinners important to strengthening relationships?

Final suggestion from Terry: Team up with another couple and trade off your kiddos so you and your spouse can have a date night at least once a month. And Danny adds: Even a simple walk can do wonders for your relationship with both your spouse AND your kids.

Today’s devotion from Crown Financial Ministries is entitled:“Holiness” and is taken from Ephesians 4:1: “Walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called.”

DL Moody once said: “Next to the might of God, the serene beauty of the holy life is the most powerful influence for good.” What is holiness? Is it the same as being spiritual? Or is it just like religion? Do you have a clean, pure heart? Larry asks and answers these questions and reminds us of two of the most quoted Bible verse: John 3:16 and 1 John 1:19.

Further Scripture reading: Jeremiah Chapters 4-6

Day 4

During the Biblical Literacy lesson this week, Pastor Ed Ethridge reminds us of the “Attributes of God”. Pastor Ed is the Pastor of Pastoral Care at the Cypress Creek Campus of Champion Forest Baptist Church.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

While God never changes, His creation does. These are the only two constants in the world. Listen as Pastor Ed Ethridge expands on this thought…

Why does Pastor Ed believe studying the Bible is essential to the Christian life? He says Proverbs is a great place to start.

Will God change His mind about His plan for you?

Can you depend on God? Pastor Ed uses Proverbs 3:5-6 and Deuteronomy 31:8 as two examples.

Will God provide everything you need to further His Kingdom?

The Lord did not call any of us out to salvation just to sit and soak and sour,” Pastor Ed says. “He called us to be obedient children.

Tune in tomorrow to hear the conclusion of his lesson.

Discussed by Pastor Averri LeMalle
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (

Day 4

The sermon this week from Champion Forest Baptist Church is a little different than your “normal” sermon. Teaching Pastor Averri LeMalle does a fabulous job transporting us back in time as he presents the story of Jonah in first person.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Reminders from Jonah:

2. God’s appointments for us are intended to grow us.

Are you so caught up in other’s faults that you can’t see your own? Do others only see YOUR faults because that’s all you see?

3. God’s compassion toward us should be expressed through us.

Do you place limits on God’s love? DON’T because He doesn’t! “Maybe your misery is God trying to get your attention,” Pastor LeMalle admonishes…

Pastor David Fleming encourages you to visit Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston this Sunday! CFBC has Life Groups classes (Sunday School) for all ages and walks of life, including Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy Class, as well as several service times and locations to choose from.
