Do we hand ourselves over or do we live by real devotion? Part 2

Today I would like to look at how we can live a life of devotion and shed that victim mentality of living at the mercy of others. As we have seen in this Article from last week, there is a huge difference between real devotion and this presumed devotion that has much...

Do we hand ourselves over or do we live by real devotion?

Did you know there is a huge difference between handing yourself over and living a life of devotion? Most of the time, this difference is not visible from the outside. Plenty of Christian songs talk about the topic. “I give myself to you” – “I surrender” – “I am...

How we can live a successful life after big mistakes or failures

Today’s article is slightly different. It is not in direct relation with family …. However, it has everything to do with family, education, mariage and  personal growth. Simply because a peaceful, happy and healthy family has less to do with what we do – then of whom...

A worthless activity that absorbed my day-turned around in a precious teaching for my kids.

Those who regularly read my articles know that it is really important for me to invest my heart and life into my children and my husband. I want to be close to them and share my life and heart with them. However, I keep reminding myself that this is a daily decision....

Three important things to consider before bringing your kids to a nursery

“I am so stupid!” – The way we talk to ourselves

This morning I was eating breakfast together with my children, drinking my coffee. With a sudden movement to help one of the children with his cereals, I spoiled my whole coffee over the table, chair and floor. My first, spontaneous reaction was “oh no!”… But then, I...

Halloween is my favorite holiday – Really?

No it is not. But this is a sentence I have read from several friends over social media. In Switzerland it is not that big a deal as it is in other countries. In our little town only a few kids are disguised, coming for a trick and treat. There are some public events...

A vacation on a campground and how realities can be completely different

The past two weeks I have been on a campground with my children. We were in a tent, enjoying the warmth of a beautiful autumn. Since the campground was one of only a few which were open during this fall season, my sister was there with her family during almost the...

How we teach our children to be friends with their siblings.

There is a popular belief (at least in the German-speaking world) that it's normal that siblings quarrel. That siblings have rivalries. And even that siblings can be mean to each other. Well, in my family of origin this was certainly true. We not only quarreled,...

Why my girls challenge became my concern and how I helped her in it.

These days I found myself in a situation with a child that reminded me of the article I wrote last week. I have a very social little girl. She loves to play with others. She’s a very happy and excited girl when there are group activities in school. After the summer...
