Hey Creek Parents! Summer is just around the corner and it is the perfect season for vacations and family fun. It is a time of relaxation and a break from routines...well, most routines anyway. One routine to never get away from is teaching your kids about God.

"Faster, higher, stronger." That is the Olympic motto. Like many of you, I am enjoying watching the Olympics with my kids.

To homeschool, or not to homeschool? That may be the question you are prayerfully considering. Homeschooling can be an amazing educational option for your kids and for you as parents. But is it right for your kids and for you?
It' "March Madness" time! The brackets are being filled out and people are getting ready to cheer on their favorite college team. While this is a time of great excitement, it can also be a time where we let our emotions and fan loyalties lead us to act in a sinful manner. This is something I refer to as "March Badness."
Do you love your children? Of course you do! A better question might be “Do your children know that you love them?” As Christian parents, we must love our children and let them know it.
Discipline is a big part of discipleship. Our kids need to know the rules and the boundaries as we help them to follow Christ.
As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, I wanted to share the following Scripture of encouragement with you all: "Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward." (Psalm 127:3)
