Welcome to and Enjoy Reading
The heart of the church universal is the Christian family. Parents have the joyful responsibility to raise up Children to love the Lord. Parents should model proper Christian living to their children by resisting temptation, unclean living, and foul language. Children learn more by watching their parents than by listening so parents should model prayer before meals, prioritizing time for Holy Scripture, and being active participants in their local church. An active participant is active with their prayers, presence, witness, tithe, and service. Revival in the church universal begins with revival in each family. We then gather together to worship and build up one another. Prayer and Holy Scripture are important for the Christian family as they continue to seek His face each day.
I was blessed to be raised in a Christian family and do my best to raise my children with a heart for God. The secular world will gladly set the priorities for our children. It is up to parents and legal guardians to emphasize the importance of Christian living and help them set priorities that honor God.
I was blessed to be raised by two Christian parents, Harold and Jean Shupe. My father joined the great cloud of witnesses in 2009, and my mother is still alive and still lives in the house that I was raised. She is my rock. God blessed me with two sweet children, Kyle and Emma. Kyle has autism and is the sweetest young man that I know. Emma is academically gifted and has a heart for God. She is an undergraduate at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. I am beyond proud of my children. My older brother, David, is my best friend and role model.
The goal of this site is to help families grow closer to each other and to Christ. I encourage men to honor and love their wives as Christ loved His church. I love children and blog about how important it is to show them the gospel with your actions and use words when necessary. This site will give parents comfort and inspiration for the journey and tips on raising children with a love for God and the knowledge that He loves them.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.”
Proverbs 22:6 (NKJV)
