7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
Ever feel like you're not sure how to parent your teenagers? You're not alone. Author Jonathan McKee--a parent of three teenagers--gets vulnerable as he draws on his own parenting (mis)adventures and almost twenty years of studying youth culture. Like you, he's not perfect. You'll definitely laugh with him, and you might even laugh at yourself while you learn from his practical advice.
In this enlightening and entertaining book, Jonathan McKee shares how to connect with your kids, how to teach lasting values to teenagers in an R-rated world, and how to put parenting blunders behind you. You'll discover how to: - notice communication arenas--like cheap breakfast spots--where your kids will naturally open up. - get from "What's your favorite pizza topping?" to "What's troubling you right now that you're too scared to talk about?" - let them mess up--even big time--and not overreact when you discover things like how they really talk on Facebook. - help them begin to make mature decisions about things like what song to download or what outfit to buy.
