Reclaiming the Culture
J and I are constantly being challenged with how much we have integrated into society. Anyone unfamiliar with the Lord would say that we do a lot of weird things. Despite how cross cultural we have become, we have such a long way to go. The Lord is gracious and reveals to us only what we can bear at the time, and as we are obedient, He continues to show us areas we need improving on. We recently saw a video about raising our daughters (yet to be born) to be great wives and mothers and keepers at home to fulfill God's calling on their life. I would call it extreme, but it just goes to show how much we've adopted the world's perspective and how far we've gotten from God's intention for families. I am eager to learn all that I can about God's plan for families so that we can have a family that glorifies the Lord and so that our children have families of their own they'll be a step ahead of where we are. One generation at a time, we'll reclaim our culture for the glory of God. Vision Forum offers many tools to help us learn, but Kelly is giving away one of their DVD sets called "Reclaiming the Culture" on her blog. Check it out and register!
