September is “Back to School” month, a perfect time to refocus our mission-minded families back on God’s priorities — to rekindle our love for Him and for others — and to remember the lost.
September: It’s a Time to Refocus!
We need to remember that the Great Commandment is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength; and the Great Commission is to go into all the world to preach the Gospel. These are our priorities in life, and for our new school year.
How we spend our days is how we live our lives.
As Christian parents (whether we have chosen homeschooling, Christian school, or public school), we are all called to teach and train our children for God’s purposes. Other leaders in the church or community (teachers, children’s ministers, Sunday school teachers, youth leaders, Bible study mentors, coaches, or tutors) can come alongside, to assist us in this calling; but the ultimate responsibility to disciple our children for Christ, is ours as parents.

In His Harvest,
Jon & Ann
