Teen Trail is a path for the youth to learn about God, His Word, Wisdom, Will and Way. It will address tweenies’ problems and offer solutions with Bible scriptures. Also, this section will educate on the adversary, the devil, Satan who roams about the earth with the sole purpose of destroying people’s lives. He knows that by targeting the youth by corrupting their minds and distorting their value, he destroys their future.

Teen Trail is an opportunity to see that God has a good plan for your life. Choosing God is the best choice for a life of peace, joy and success. You must do your part. Search the scriptures and renew your mind.

If you change the way you think, you change the way you speak; you change the way you speak, you change the way you act, and this will ultimately change your life.  And, many of the questions listed above will miraculously be resolved. It all starts in your mind.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.  Romans 12:2 (KJV)

Intro to Parent’s Path

parents 11

It’s not easy. The road is difficult. But here we are. It is a must. We are losing our future—our children. Let’s save the children.

The world has become a scary place for our children to reside. Society rules and dictates ways of living. Our youth look up to athletes, actors and musicians as role models. Video games, electronic devices and social media are their educators. The upcoming generation are in slow mode, slow moving, slow thinking and slow acting. Their characteristics are selfish, aloof, disrespectful, lazy, and ill-mannered all encased with a sense of entitlement.

What happened? God was taken out of daily living, out of the homes, out of the schools and in some cases out of the churches. When God was taken out, the devil moved right in and God’s way of thinking was replaced with societal norms, governmental opinions, Hollywood’s influences and the worldly lusts.

People may say, it’s no different than in previous times. I beg to differ. The generation in question lack morals of respect, truth, honesty, humility, and more importantly love for self, others and God.

The solution is clear. Bring God back. Lean on Him. Obtain His Wisdom. Teach His Word. Recognize there is adversary: the devil roaming about, with a sole purpose to distract, deceive and destroy. It is imperative for the parents to realize the devil battles in the mind, attempting to influence the way of thinking for you and your children.

Parent’s Path is an avenue for parents to learn about God, His Word, Wisdom, Will and Way. It’s for the guardians who truly want a better life while raising their children. Common problems parents may face today will be addressed; using God as the Source and the Bible as the resource for results. Parents are the first line in helping the future generations, but the healer must first be healed.

During an airplane excursion, before takeoff, the flight attendant explains the procedures about donning the oxygen mask. They adamantly instruct you to put your oxygen mask on first before helping others. If you run out of oxygen, you can’t help anyone else with their oxygen mask. If you don’t care for yourself how can you adequately take care of anyone?

Can you relate to these issues?

  • I’m too busy.
  • I’m too tired.
  • I don’t know how.
  • What about me?
  • I’m lonely.
  • It’s too hard.
  • My house is a wreck.
  • I need help.
  • I’m afraid.
  • I must be in control.
  • I am not in control.
  • I’m broke.

The answers can be found in God and His Word. Stop shaking your head, sucking your teeth and rolling your eyes! Look at yourself! Look at your life. You are doing things your way. How is that working out for you? If you can relate to any of the issues above, it is not working out. Right now, what do you have to lose?

I was a single parent, raising my children alone. I can definitely relate to you and your trials. If I knew then, what I know now, life would have been easier. Parent’s Path will help you put your oxygen mask on first, then you can assist your children with their masks. It will take work. You must trust in God and not trust in yourself.

 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

Intro Basic Bible 101

Manners

She lacks home training. He is ill-mannered. They don’t have social graces. All these statements relatively mean the same. The person lacks etiquette.

Let’s search the definitions.

  • Etiquette are the rules indicated for proper and polite behaviors. Or, the conduct required or prescribed by authority to be observed in social settings.
  • Social graces are skills used to interact politely in social situations.
  • Manners are the way a person normally behaves especially with others.
  • Home training is home taught manners.

In summary, rules and behaviors conducted in public and social settings.

Generally, these skills and behaviors are learned at home and/or at school taught by parents, relatives, teachers or others experienced in the field. Details covered may include but are not limited to:

  1. How to think
  2. How to dress
  3. How to speak
  4. How to walk
  5. How to act in certain situations
  6. How to react to certain people

Basic Bible 101 teaches God Etiquette through His Word, the skills and behaviors to be performed in the world by His children. Biblical Scriptures will instruct on how to think, dress, speak, walk, and act. Also how to deal with certain people in life.

Basic Bible 101 goes back to the fundamentals of God’s teaching. Social graces are skills used to interact politely in social situations. God gives His grace—His unmerited, undeserved favor, a free gift given to us to be able to perform all things and act appropriately in all situations.

Let’s get back to basics so we can advance, because:

  • God has a good plan for your life.

 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. Jeremiah 29:11-12King James Version (KJV)

  • Discover your calling.

 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling … Ephesians 1:18King James Version (KJV)

  • Lastly, spend you days in prosperity and years in pleasure,

If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures. Job 36:11 (KJV)
