How do we teach our kids and teenagers about what other religions believe? In this 7-minute episode, Ann Dunagan shares a (very) brief introduction to Hinduism, from a Christian worldview.
Praying and interceding for the salvation of our children, and trusting God to handle our kids, is VITAL. We need to stand in faith and PRAY for our kids. Whether your children and young and living strong for Jesus, or perhaps you have Prodigal adults who grieve your heart more than you ever thought possible. Let God be GOD in your KIDS!!! As moms, our part is to pray and to trust God. He is ABLE. He loves our kids and God can do anything.
Do not FEAR, even for your children's salvation. Worry and anxiety are not helpful "Momma-attitudes" to have; but they are traps and snares of the enemy. No matter what the present situation is regarding your children, the virtuous woman can stand on God's Word and PRAY in faith.
This week, we're focusing on how to face your FEARS with FAITH, by the power of God's Word and prayer. Today, we're looking at being fearful for the teenage years. This is nothing to joke and worry about, but a season of parenting that requires solid trust and warrior faith.
In today's QUICK QUESTION, we're addressing the FEAR of what others think. Living with a focus on the opinions of others is a trap and a snare. The Bible calls it the FEAR OF MAN (or of people). Learn how to address this FEAR, through the power of the Word of God and by FAITH.
This week in our QUICK QUESTIONS, we're learning about how to tackle FEAR head-on, by FAITH. Today's focus is an introduction to FEAR and encouragement about how to handle FEAR of the future, especially for moms, regarding the future of our children.
Be encouraged as Ann Dunagan, author of The Mission-Minded Family and mom or 7, brings a word of encouragement and practical advice, especially for busy-at-home moms, to spend time with the Lord in prayer (without condemnation).
How can we pray more effectively as busy moms? Ann Dunagan looks at strategic keys for busy moms from the Lord's PRAYER -- from Matthew 6:9-13. How did Jesus teach us to pray? How can we pray more effectively? How can we be more honest before God in prayer? Join Ann for this week's episode of Mission-Minded Families.

What about people who have never heard the Gospel?
This week, we're focusing on needs of the world and the importance of compassion, from a Biblical and mission-minded perspective. In today's Quick Question, Ann Dunagan answers,
"Why should we care for the UNREACHED?"
In this episode, we're completing our study through the book of Titus, today in Titus 3:8-15. The focus is how to MAINTAIN good works. How do we keep doing what God has called for us to do? How do we even go beyond the maintenance-mode of cultural Christianity and truly ENJOY loving and serving the Lord?
Two key verses are 3:8, "be careful to maintain good works" and 3:14, "and learn to maintain good works."
We're not saved by our self-efforts or by merely doing good things, but God does have "good works" prepared for us to do for His kingdom and His glory.
As we continue our verse-by-verse Bible study, today in Titus 3:1-7, our focus is being prepared for every good work, by putting our hope in God's grace and the blood of Jesus Christ. This edition includes an introduction to The Scarlet Cord, Nothing but the Blood of Jesus (a concise call to world missions, by Jon & Ann Dunagan, available as a FREE eBook download -- http://harvestministry.org/the-scarlet-cord -- listen for details and the DISCOUNT CODE on the podcast).
Highlights in this episode include teaching about daring to OBEY (including an encouragement to wives about attitudes at home), to be READY for every good work, to be SWEET, to be free from sin, and to be full of HOPE.
Titus 3:1 "...to be ready for every good work."
The Q & A section is addresses a few questions from a mom in Oregon -- about discontentment, comparison, and how to work together as a husband and wife.
In this episode, our focus is a mission-minded Bible study in the second-half of Titus Chapter 2, (verses 9-15). Highlights include a few quotes from Elisabeth Elliot, plus a Bible study focus on "exhorting" moms, God's grace and salvation through Jesus, keeping a focus on eternity, and being ZEALOUS for good works.
Following our verse-by-verse study, Ann Dunagan also addresses several practical questions from real-life moms from Louisiana, Indiana, and Washington.
"Looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people zealous for good works" (Titus 2:13-14).
As we continue our verse-by-verse study through the Book of Titus, today beginning chapter 2, Ann Dunagan discusses the balance between DOING GOOD as busy-at-home moms (in raising and loving our children and families) along with having a passionate heart for the needs of the world. Are we called to love the Lord, or to raise our little ones? Or is it possible to do both?
A key verse is Titus 2:7 which says, "in all things, showing yourself to be a pattern of good works..."
