Focus on The Family


After just returning from a conference, I thought it appropriate to share some truth gained through a husband & wife ministry team of Pastor Brian & Amy Bloye that speaks volumes of decisions that should be made in the life of every family to raise up an army of Disciplemakers.  


Check out some of this truth as a reminder that the right families have right priorities:


Pastor Brian & Amy Bloye shared the following:

  1. LEARN TO VALUE MARGIN:

  • GOD SHOWS UP IN OUR MARGIN – DON’T GET TOO BUSY FOR GOD

  • VALUE MARGIN

  • SCHEDULE MARGIN

  • DO WHATS IMPORTANT NOT WHATS URGENT – Phil 1:9-10

  • LEARN TO SAY NO


  1. CHEAT IN THE RIGHT PLACES – MT 6:33

  • MISCONCEPTION:WORK FOR GOD, HE WILL FILL IN GAPS

  • “GOD NEVER PROMISED PROVISION FOR MISPLACED PRIORITIES” – ANDY STANLEY

  • TAKE A DAY OFF

  • PHYSICAL & EMOTIONAL HEALTH


  1. UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING A TEAM

  • KING SOLOMON – Ecclesiastes – “TWO ARE BETTER THAN ONE”

  • PRIORITIZE BEING A TEAM

  • CHALLENGES AND DIFFICULTIES MAKE YOU A TEAM

  • PRAY TOGETHER

  • TIME

  • COMMUNICATE – BRING WIFE INTO MINISTRY – NO WOMAN WANTS TO BE A SIDEKICK

  • ENCOURAGER



  1. PAY ATTENTION TO EMOTIONAL HEALTH

  • FORMULA FROM RICK WARREN:

    • DIVERT DAILY

    • WITHDRAW WEEKLY

    • ESCAPE QUARTERLY

    • ABANDON ANNUALLY

    • HAVE A PASTOR

    • HAVE A COUNSELOR


“UNHEALTHY FAMILIES MAKE UNHEALTHY DISCIPLES.” – BRIAN BLOYE


Let’s make a concerted effort as followers of God to bring a focus back to family that we can experience healthy homes.  


Of course, a big part of Healthy Families is making the right choice to start.  This Sunday, Student Ministry Pastor Matt French will be bringing the message, “Happily Ever After? – Pt. 3 – RECOGNIZING THE RIGHT SPOUSE”. Please plan to be part of this Sermon & C -group Series as we continue this week in a quest to bring spiritual health to our marriages and to greater connect us to Jesus!!!!!


REMEMBER, GOD LOVES YOU AND SO DO WE AT CALVARY!!!!!
