Spring Fling Feature #5: Focus On The Family

Spring Fling: "New Beginnings Event"
(Click here to read more about my theme)
March 13-19, 2011

I'm inviting you to hop over and visit our featured Spring Fling Feature Sponsor. Feel free to shop from their site/ store and follow them through the social media links provided below.


Earlier this morning our Pastor preached a message on "The importance of seeing God" in our lives, in our families and in our social circles. He went on to share that while academic qualifications are good, the pursuit of the same should never take you away from God, for in the end the same qualifications will never guarantee you a place in Heaven.

We all need a little nudge of encouragement through the day to help us stay on track. Time and again in my own life I've received that loving nudge from God through the
Focus On The Family ministry.


The Buzz:


Focus On The Family is a global Christian ministry, founded by Dr. James Dobson, dedicated to helping you stay focused in your walk with God, with help and resources for
  • Couples to build healthy marriages that reflect God’s design
  • Parents to raise their children according to morals and values grounded in biblical principles.
I love that the resources you find on their website, through their print material or audio and visual aids, are not just Biblical doctrines that are preached but are practical aids to encourage, bless and build you and your family up in the ways of the LORD.


For the Kids:

Focus On The Family has some wonderful resources for your kids. Thanks to Dr James Dobson's curiosity as to why children had a lack of high quality entertainment in the mid 1980s, Adventures in Odyssey was born.


The Adventures feature original audio drama stories that entertain and teach Biblical and moral lessons that are important to help mold a child's character.

Bunny girl loves Adventures in Odyssey and the animated group from Whit's End. We own the Cause and Effect collection of 14 stories and store the collection safely in my car.


If we're not listening to a music cd, we have Connie, Wooton, Whit and the rest of the "gang" chattering away on our drives!

Remember, you don't have to wait till your ordered cd or DVD comes in, just gather your little ones around and then click over to listen to the Adventures online.

Now if you love What's In The Bible then another online bookmark stop just has to be JellyTelly!


JellyTelly
is an online destination for families, developed in partnership between Focus on the Family and Phil Vischer’s Jellyfish Labs. As a Bible-based alternative to video and gaming sites, JellyTelly provides families with a safe place to learn and play online.

Their mission seals it for me!....

Our first mission is to help raise the next generation of Christians so they know what they believe and know how to live it. Our second mission is to help launch the next generation of Christian storytellers. We think the combination of a new generation of Christian storytellers and a new generation of Christian kids who know their faith and know what it looks like to live it can change the world.

Amen to that!


Your child can play action games, creative games and puzzles


or watch Buck Denver, Adventures in Odyssey, Last Chance Detectives episodes and more.

On the print resource front, you can subscribe to the award-winning, monthly, Christian, Kids magazines- Clubhouse Jr.

{Faith-filled fun for youngsters (ages 3-7). Creative stories, fascinating articles, puzzles and craft ideas that reinforce biblical values and help boys and girls explore their world, are packed into each issue.}

and/or

Clubhouse

{This kids magazine for ages 8-12 reinforces traditional values and promotes family closeness with hands-on activities, challenging puzzles and exciting stories.}

It doesn't just stop with print because both magazines also have more fun on their respective sites.

With the online world of Clubhouse Jr


you can find some great craft ideas (I love the Lolli-poppies craft and plan to try it out with my Missionettes class this week.), coloring pages, recipes and mini Bible nuggets of wisdom.

For the older kids, the online world of Clubhouse has a really neat segment called "The Average Boy", that has an average Joe relay thoughts about life in a language all kids would understand.


Each Average Boy story weaves its way around some lesson or character trait that would benefit your child.

Focus On The Family really has an ocean of Christian Resource wealth. As they beautifully put it....
"No matter who you are, what you’re going through or what challenges your family may be facing, we’re here to help"
....And you know what?
They really are!

Focus on the Family is wonderful! I remember sitting by the radio at 7 pm at night and eagerly listening to Adventures in Odyssey growing up. My parents listened to the program that followed (can't think of the name right now.) I've actually been looking into some of their resources recently to work on a couple different areas in my life :-)
