Consider this powerful statement: "The Kingdom within me becomes the Kingdom around me." How can pondering this statement lead you to become a better parent?
The answer is simple yet profound. How you believe and feel within yourself directly influences how you parent your children externally.
At Crazy Cool Family, we embrace the concept of the "CCF House," which lies at the core of all our teachings. The top of the house bears a crucial message: "Pursue God." This placement signifies the utmost importance of your relationship with God, as it serves as the foundation for becoming a better parent.
Amidst the responsibilities of marriage and raising children, it's vital to prioritize your personal growth and well-being. When you are a healthy individual, you naturally become a healthy parent, positively impacting every aspect of your parenting.
Your mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional health significantly influences your parenting style. For instance, if you're an angry person, you may find yourself parenting with anger. On the other hand, if you're generous and forgiving, those qualities will shine through in your parenting.
However, recognizing the significance of your relationship with God is just the starting point. We have so much more to share with you on your parenting journey. Yet, this is where you focus most—on nurturing your relationship with God and developing your own discipleship.
To become a better parent, own your personal growth. Engage with your local church, participate in small groups, seek mentorship, read the Bible, and explore Christian discipleship literature. Cultivate and deepen your relationship with God, for it is the first and most impactful way to grow as a parent.
As you align your heart and beliefs with God's wisdom and love, your parenting will naturally reflect these qualities. Remember, the Kingdom within you has the power to transform the Kingdom around you, creating a loving, nurturing, and godly environment for your family.
