Sep 8, 2022 – Loren De Jong Identity in the Promises of God
Setting our families up for success by putting strategies in place can help make day to day life more manageable. Tools, such as Dr. Pervis’ The Connected Child, help us walk alongside our kids. Some strategies that Loren and Patt De Jong incorporated into their family routine when their adopted children were young included providing a structured schedule, playful engagement, minimizing “extra” activities, and focusing on family time. The ultimate goal; however, as Christian parents is to point our children to Christ (Isaiah 61:1-3). Loren reminds us that not all days will be filled with happiness; however, all days can be filled with joy. The joy of the Lord is our strength! In order to find His joy and perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3-4), Loren encourages us to stay rooted in the Scriptures, always searching for WHO God is (Isaiah 40).
