Welcome to June! When we began 2019, we probably didn’t know how quickly the year will go by. But here we are, five months done, and at the beginning of the sixth month.
The joys, the laughter, the challenges, the wins, the losses, the nights spent praying, the ones possibly spent shedding a tear or two have all brought you to this moment. They are forming part of your 2019 story. But we have hope that there are better days ahead of us because God promises us that the glory of the latter surpasses the former ( Haggai 2:9) and that the path of the righteous is like the shining light that shines more and more ( Psalm 4:8)
The month of June is a special and significant month for me. It is my wedding anniversary month and this year, my husband and I celebrate ten years of marriage. The things above sum up the last decade for us. But much more than anything, our joy for our future knows no bounds.
I remember before we got married, we would pray for our lives and our future home. We had asked God for a specific type of children and when the kids started to come after marriage, God reminded me of our request and how he had granted them.
One of the things I also did during the pregnancy of each of my children, was to speak into their lives, declare God’s words and what I desired over them as they developed.
For example, this might make you laugh. I prayed and declared daily that my first child would have lots of hair.
I had envisioned a child with a full head of hair. So, the moment I delivered her, my first question to the midwives was ‘ Does she have hair?’ It was very funny but she did come out with lovely full hair.
I say this to emphasize the power of words because I have seen God’s word come alive in my own life and my children’s lives and we have intentionally taught them the same word of God. They are committing them to heart just as we are and declaring them on a daily basis.
To this end, I have recently published a book ( a compilation of God’s words that your child can read and declare daily). No other words carry such power as God’s words do. Nothing else changes a person’s life like God’s power that we find in his word and it WORKS!
If you are trying to help your child get over the fear of anything or deal with self confidence or self esteem or even their academics, your child will find at least one declaration that is useful for every one of these situations or more in the book.

Tell you friends and family about it or you could get a copy for them. I would love to also read your reviews about it.
The Archers Lounge is still open for your to join us.
What is it like being a modern day Christian parent with a traditional value system? How do you even navigate the waters?
Do ever think about this?
This is one big challenge that parents like you and me face and cannot get away from. It shows up everywhere on their parenting journeys. This is a key area of learning at the lounge. Please click here to find out more and to join.
I wish you the very best this month. A culmination of things lost restored to you and renewed hope and zest for the months ahead.
Look at the bright side, it always has a better view.
