In the Midst of the Parenting From The Inside Out Seminar

We’re in the middle of the Parenting From The Inside Out Seminar here in Prince Edward Island, and its been fantastic. Anita is really in her element doing these, and its such a privilege to team up with her and take the more background role.

Last night and this morning, she went through ideas in Parenting Philosophies, Character Development, Cultivating The Garden of your child’s heart, Obedience, Discipline and more.

Tonight I open up Identity and Destiny (who you are, and who you’re becoming), and we crack into the father end of parenting. Lots of small group and group interaction have really opened all of it up in beautiful ways.

We got a chance to run up to the North Shore of the Island (Anita calls it “my island;” i.e. her island). It is breathtakingly beautiful, even in winter, just like the Anne of Green Gables film.

Must go now to prepare for the evening.


Sheltering Mercy: Prayers Inspired by the Psalms

Sheltering Mercy, along with its companion volume, Endless Grace, helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.
