Welcome To Family Ministries

I welcome you to our Family Ministries page. We are very excited to have a dedicated page to meet the needs of you – our singles, our married couples, and the entire family in general.

We have made several features available for you on this page, including the family ministries blog, upcoming events, photo gallery, video clips, and a contact tab. I encourage you to use the contact tab to let me know what your needs are or just to say hello. This contact is monitored daily, and I will be happy to hear from you.

Today, I am launching the family ministries blog – The Parental Advice. Enjoy this article and let me know what you think. Continue to check this page weekly for more articles and information.

Let us continue to build strong families for the advancement of the work until the return of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Parenting Tip

As we are all aware, children are like sponges. They soak up information and knowledge instantaneously. Children are great learning machines. They learn more through doing (experience) than they do from their parents shouting and talking. Ellen G. White reminds us in the book “Child Guidance,” that the home is the first school. So, we ought to be most careful about our activities, dispositions and attitudes in the environment in which they live.

Teach them the importance of “family time” by creating unique traditions that they enjoy doing. Go to the beach or the park where they can run and play freely under your parental supervision. Include in their list of activities visiting the grandparents on a regular basis. They will learn so much from the grandparents that will last a lifetime.

Children remember and appreciate time with people they love: family members, school and church friends. It is a great thing to always be friends with your children’s friends. So create activities and events where you can meet them in a relaxing and friendly environment.

Laura Buddenber, a renown child expert, says, “When advertising and popular culture tell kids that life is all about ‘getting stuff,” teach your kids to love people and use things, instead of the other way around.”

John & Evelyna Musgrove

In her magazine, Oprah writes a column, ‘What I know for sure’. Borrowing that thought, I know for sure that my parents are still in love after 50 years. How do I know? Well you only have to watch them! See the way they smile at each other, walk and sit close to each other. Every morning Dad dares not leave the house without mom’s goodbye kiss. He gets home as early as he can and mom has dinner waiting when he arrives. They do almost everything together and except for childbirth and one time when Dad had a short stay in hospital, they have never slept apart. They’ll both tell you, “I married my best friend and I’d do it again in a heartbeat.”

Their story began a long time ago. Dad says, “Since I was about 8 years old, I prayed to God for a wife that I could live peacefully and happily with. He gave me your mother.” Mom says, “Chile, I know your daddy from I had sense” – typical of her sense of humor. She refers to the fact that their families knew each since they were children.
