Sweet Dreams Tanya
“Wake up, Tanya it’s time to get ready for your online class.”
“Mhmm,” was the only response.
Keisha knew that she would have to shake her fourteen year old to wake her up, as she was a deep sleeper and had hearing issues. It would usually take four or five attempts before Tanya actually got up……
A moment later, Tanya was wide awake and saying her prayers. After a quick shower, she joined her mum at the breakfast table in the kitchen.
“Mummy, I had another one of my dreams. This time I dreamt of Jonah in the whale.”
Devout Christians, 14-year-old Tanya and her mother Keisha are about to experience some changes in their lives that will need them to call on their faith.
Parenting teenagers has become a growing concern in our homes, communities and the church. Many mothers and fathers are unfulfilled in their roles as parents and many teenagers are emotionally unstable and feel unloved.
The relationships between parents and their teenagers are difficult and sometimes resulting in estranged relationships with many teenagers ‘divorcing’ their parents. Eunice encounters difficulties and was at risk of her daughter ‘divorcing’ her when her daughter reaches adolescence. All the parenting strategies she used over the years suddenly ceased to work, causing frustrations, verbal battles and chaos at home.
Do Not Stop the Little Children
Mary believes we need to take a deep and honest look at ourselves and see if we are preventing our children from being blessed by Jesus. Do we stop them by our worldly ways? Are we blind to the real preciousness of who they are in God’s eyes? We need to become more aware of Satan’s strategies, his lies and his plans to rob our little ones of all that Jesus wants for them. We need to look up and be aware of what is happening around us and not be complacent.
Silly Little Bumblebee
Silly Little Bumble Bee is an exciting children story book with (lessons to learn), lots and lots of BUZZZZZ, CROAACK and quirky little songs to the tune of [Five Little Ducks and You Can’t Catch Me].
