Warning: Use of undefined constant videoembedder_options - assumed 'videoembedder_options' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/www/ on line 306

Sound Expressions For Kids 2
is my newest holistic frequency infused spontaneous instrumental CD release, and my second created specifically for children (and for parents/grandparents/teachers/caregivers) to incorporate into vehicle riding time, study time/homework, quiet/calming time, classrooms, creative time, nap/bed time, sleep issues, etc.. More and more people around the globe are realizing the need for shifting away from stress-filled atmospheres/busy schedules and toward holistic healing approaches. Much research indicates music as playing a  significant role in that journey.

Fragrant Sound
is a brand new scents and sounds product line of holistic therapeutic fragrance blends and corresponding holistic frequency infused music in conjunction with Angela Vrettas/Scent of Life Australia. We have prayed together specific to this product line for over two years are so excited to release our first product, Bethany,which will be followed by seven additional Fragrant Sound scents and sounds products throughout 2019. Each scent and sound are specific to a Holy Spirit led holistic therapeutic blend, intention, frequency, Scripture, and color, all created to encounter our Healer.

New Revised/Updated 2019 Edition with 31 Day Devotional/Journal. Life is a journey that manifests through numerous experiences and scenarios. As humans, we often see things from a perspective reflective of what we are interested in. Our interests align with our gifts and talents – our DNA. For Tammy, music is in her DNA. She was given a prophetic vision of her life as a flowing music staff suspended infinitely over a lush green meadow. As a conductor, it was her joy to collect and place individual notes on the staff. The notes represented individual people, who when they sang or played their notes, became an integral part of a symphony being created at precisely the right moment in time. Every individual has been created as part of the tapestry of Good Ideas because each one of us is a God Idea. This book is written in a musical format; as a composition with a series of musical movements. Preludes and fugues, melodies and harmonies, and a musical directive called, Selah, comprise the expression of our personal journey and the revelation learned along the way. Selah means to “pause and meditate,” which is to say, “here’s how it plays out.” For each of us, life’s journey is about what we have learned, as well as those things we wish we had known. Praying and believing for each reader through Was I Not Listening or Did They Not Tell Me? to be better equipped and empowered in playing the life song you have been gifted to release.

Tapestry of Soundsare Holy Spirit led spontaneously recorded holistic frequency infused instrumental pieces meditation pieces, The Butterfly Effect, Monarchs, and The Throne Room are my first release in a new series of holistic frequency infused meditation pieces, entitled, Tapestry of Sounds. The intention of these pieces can be found in the definition of The Butterfly Effect. Spending time with Holy Spirit renews our bodies, minds, souls, and spirit holistically. Meditating on the Word in His Presence with holistic frequency infused Holy Spirit led instrumental music facilitates “prospering in all things and being in health, just as your soul prospers” (3 John 2). There is extensive research available scientifically, musically, physically, and spiritually to confirm the benefits of holistic infused music and daily meditation. My intention is to be a vessel, a daughterof the King, releasing the frequencies of the atmosphere of Heaven on behalf of those seeking to encounter our Heavenly Father’s lovingkindness, good plans, and wholeness as sons and daughters in the power of Jesus. These pieces are perfect for morning or evening devotional time, to set aside time to rest, regroup, balance, calm, de-stress at home, in the work place, or in the car. I am believing my initial step of recording and releasing these pieces for such a time as these will result in an eternal impact and praise reports on behalf of many, i.e. The Butterfly Effect.

The Greatest Awakening Has Begun

Warning: Use of undefined constant videoembedder_options - assumed 'videoembedder_options' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/www/ on line 306

We watched Surrounded on TBN last nite. I had goosebumps and wept joy-filled tears throughout,  as watching this unfold before my very eyes was such an exciting and incredible answer to years of intercession! Multitudes of multigenerational, culturally diverse backgrounds, and “denominations” – from young children through youth through young adult through middle age through elderly – gathered together in one place to worship as one, with arms lifted high, our glorious King! The goal: a great awakening! This event took place in Nashville, TN, at Bridgestone Arena. We participated in a similar gathering in Atlanta, GA, at Stone Mountain this past summer. I know similar gatherings are transpiring in CA, NC, MN, MO, TX and all over the world, i.e. from the smallest gathering in an underground house church in persecuted nations, to the largest stadium gatherings all throughout the world.

The greatest awakening to ever hit the Earth has begun for the glory of One! This awakening is not about children, not about youth, not about skin color, not about economic status or educational level, not about religion, not about any one man or ministry, but rather, it’s about a multigenerational blood of Jesus – red wave – Bride/Body making herself ready for Him to advance the Church HE is building on Earth that the gates of hell will not prevail against. This awakening focuses on being one with our Father by being one in the Son, by giving Holy Spirit the conductor’s baton to connect and release Heaven on Earth through His Spirit and Truth worshipers who possess His Kingdom life within. These are the sons of the Most High the entire Earth has been groaning for the manifestation of in the midst of deep darkness covering the Earth. We, His sons and daughters, now arise and shine with the light of His glory as His ambassadors of love, and it’s all for HIS glory! What an amazing and profound time to be seated in Heavenly places with Christ!!!

Spiritual Mothers and Fathers

Warning: Use of undefined constant videoembedder_options - assumed 'videoembedder_options' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/www/ on line 306

Today I was inspired by the following post to write: “‘My generation doesn’t need anymore apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, or teachers…We need FATHERS AND MOTHERS!” Where are the Elijah’s??? There’s an entire Elisha generation waiting on you to pour into us!’
Josh Wyatt, a Millenial”

Elijah was a major prophet of Israel who mentored Elisha to be his successor. Elijah imparted a double portion of his mantle/legacy when Elisha was granted the privilege of observing Elijah’s sudden departure from Earth (one of only two recorded in Scripture who was taken to Heaven without first dying (2 Kings 2:1-14); Enoch was the other (Genesis 5:21-24; Hebrews 11:5)). Both Enoch and Elijah were known as intimate friends who walked with Jehovah God, along with David, who was considered to be a man after God’s own heart (1 Samuel 13:14; Acts 13:22). 

Elijah represents the Holy Spirit poured out on a generation in such a profound manner that the hearts of the fathers are turned toward their children, and the hearts of the children are turned toward their fathers, and the land is neither cursed nor destroyed (Malachi 4:5-6). Sounds like the heart cry of the millennial in the opening paragraph. Elijah represents the vastly needed spiritual mothers and fathers in the midst of this current fatherless and floundering generation, whose foundations over the past 50+ years have been built on the foolishness of man and sinking sand. When rains, floods, torrents, and winds come against foolish foundations, the fall is great and complete (Matthew 7:26-27). Elijah represents a world wide move of Holy Spirit through mature (pursuing spiritual perfection) spiritual mothers and fathers who have done all to stay the course of pressing toward the goal of the heavenly prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus, irregardless of the cultural tide; who are standing ready to mentor and impart a double portion on behalf of a generation whose hearts are about to be turned toward their Heavenly Father (Philippians 3:12-16). Elijah represents spiritual mothers and fathers who will build the foundations of this up and coming generation on the supernatural Spirit of Wisdom in such a profound way that rains, floods, torrents, and winds coming against them will not prevail because they are standing firm in Christ who IS the Rock (Matthew 7:24-25)!

What exactly do spiritual mothers and fathers look like? A personal perspective: from the moment of conception, we knew this was our highest calling for parenting our amazing gifts of three children on this Earth. We also knew this was our highest calling for adopting three additional children (siblings) from Guatemala. From the onset, grounding them in the Word, their identity in Christ, worship, prayer, and intimate relationship with their Heavenly Father was first and foremost. Providing for, protecting, and nurturing their physical, emotional, educational, and every other need was a given in the midst of the spiritual intent as parents. Additionally, we were led from their earliest of years, to identity and nurture their unique giftings, talents, and callings (natural and spiritual), and to provide the necessary avenues for each one to be equipped/skilled with excellence in their God-given abilities. 

Their father did his absolute best to demonstrate our Heavenly Father’s unconditional love, provision, listening ear, covering and boundaries for their well-being and character development, as well as spiritual disciplines and virtues. Their mother did her absolute best to take care of every physical, educational, spiritual, emotional, and social need to the best of her ability, and prayerfully, each of her children would say she did it ‘over the top.’ Neither parent did it perfectly, but both walked it out lovingly, intentionally, purposefully, and wholeheartedly, with Holy Spirit in the power of the Word leading throughout (or with the Word in the power of the Spirit – both apply). Our Heavenly Father alone sees the big picture – the good and perfect plans He alone has ordained – for each and every child. It is in His leading and in His Word alone that each one will arrive at the Kingdom destination they are called to to arrive at, lead with, and walk out to His glory. 

If we, as parents, do not take the intentional and purposeful time it requires to daily search out Holy Spirit leading and the Word on behalf of each precious child, it is simply far too easy to let the extra-curricular activities, schools, churches, peers, entertainment, immaturity, self-centeredness, distractions, bunny trails, traditions, and alluring strategies of the kingdom of darkness determine the course. We are now living in a such a time, where precisely that reality has transpired for far too many, and sadly, multitudes do not even see it, hear it, or understand it; far too many are blindly/deafly allowing the blind/deaf to lead their families into even deeper blindness/deafness. 

As a mother and father, we daily parented with extreme intentionally at an immense cost (Matthew 10:34-46; Luke 14:26-33). We purposed throughout to make our ceiling our children’s floor; to impart to them a double portion/legacy for their own calling in this life. Their double portion focused more on the Word, Holy Spirit, true identity/Christ’s character in them, and giftings/callings equipped/skilled with excellence for His glory, far surpassing anything financial, cultural, social, educational, or any other earthly focus the world would deem important or necessary. We did not do it perfectly, but we did it wholeheartedly. 

We immensely love our now adult children beyond words, are incredibly thankful for our many parenting years, and are humbly proud of who each one is/how they are walking out their callings in this life (the youngest has yet to say, ‘yes’ to the Kingdom call on his life). Each one has been equipped to lead/is leading on behalf of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. We are now entering the season where our latter years will be greater than our former years; where Isaiah 54 and Joel 2 has and will manifest from the unseen to the seen realm. 

To this millennial generation needing/searching for spiritual mothers and fathers to pour into them, our response is, “Here we are, Lord, send us!” As the eyes of the Lord search to and fro to support a generation whose hearts are completely His, a generation whose focus is on the King of kings in all His glory, lovingkindness, compassion, mercy, justice, humility, sonship, and infinitely more, we say, again, “Here we are, Lord, send us.”

Christians Should Be Relentless In Training Up This Next Generation In The Ways Of The Kingdom

Warning: Use of undefined constant videoembedder_options - assumed 'videoembedder_options' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/www/ on line 306

The Old Testament testifies over and over again of Israel’s failure to equip the generations to walk in the ways of the Jehovah God…Creator God…God Most High…our Father who is in Heaven. Whenever the adults failed to be relentless in training up the next generation to love Him with their whole heart, soul, mind, and strength, and instead, adopted the ways of the culture of their times, devastation within the entire nation manifested. Whenever they were faithful to train up the next generation according to the Lord’s higher ways, abundant blessings manifested within the entire nation. Being relentless with the next generation was and still is key.

Relentless: showing or promising no abatement of severity, intensity, strength, or pace; oppressively constant; incessant; inflexible (Merriam-Webster).

The New Testament testifies over and over again of the disciples being relentless in spreading the Gospel and love of Christ, to the extent of losing of their own lives. Children were always present when Jesus taught…they weren’t dismissed to children’s church and given snacks, games, over-simplified object lessons, cell phones, or iPads that entertained them during His message. The children were very present in the worship, as the Pharisees were quick to criticize (Matthew 21:16; Psalm 8:2). The key to peace, abundant life, and blessing is clearly connected to our children being taught to love the Lord with their whole heart, soul, mind and strength, which in turn results in loving others with His love.

Relentless is what satan has been with regard to the destruction of this present generation, impacting families, individuals, and freedoms designed to protect through misguided legislation politics, education, media, arts/entertainment, as well as the church. Satan has been relentless in the murder of 60 million aborted babies, in the name of “protecting woman’s rights” over the rights of the unborn. The enemy has been relentless in redefining the family through gay marriage legislation. Satan has been relentless in the abuse of children and youth through pornography, sex trafficking, and abuse. The kingdom of darkness is now being relentless in redefining gender itself, and perverting the innocence of children’s minds through licentious and perverse sex education and media on multiple levels. “The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.” Deitrich Bonhoeffer

Why are professing and practicing Christians not being as relentless in training up the next generation to walk wholeheartedly toward the ways of the Lord as the enemy is in deceiving and luring us to train them to walk away from Him and His ways? Relentless means equipping our children to worship Him, love Him, know Him, obey Him, and walk in His ways from the womb to the tomb. Why are we not teaching our children to think about, talk about, talk to, listen to, focus on, spend time with, and desire to please, obey, and honor Him 24/7 instead of hours and hours spent focusing on school, sports, friends, fun, entertainment, media, etc.? His ways would include everything from modest dress (preferring others and dignity as opposed to ‘sexy’ and stylish (in direct opposition to mimicking the hypocrisy of Hollywood, music and entertainment, where embracing violence and sex are the standard of entertainment generating billions, yet portraying themselves to be the voice of justice). His ways would include courtship (rather than advocating dating and sex way too young with way too many partners), purity vows, purity with regard to what’s allowed through the ears, the eyes, and the heart, etc.. His ways involve loving those in sin without condoning their sinful lifestyles. If we truly love someone why would we condone choices that lead someone to a life of destruction?

Why can we not see as Christian parents spending relentless hours on a sports field or in a gymnasium or on a musical instrument that requires endless commitment, dedication, and diligence in order to become more than average, fails in comparison to applying the same intensity and commitment to walking in the ways of our Lord and King, impacting us eternally now? Why are we content to compromise in so many areas? Far too often we are content to sit on the fence with one foot in the world and one foot in the church, not remotely noticing that Satan owns that fence and continues to move it further and further away from Father’s ways, i.e. His plumbline, with every passing day? We live in an anti-Christ society and age. We must come to understand that being relentless in this commission with regard to our children is the only hope for this generation and for our nation. We cannot be satisfied with worldly and culturally defined “entertainment” any longer. The deceptions, so frequently addressed in NT Scriptures, are blatant and aggressive in our day and age. “Wake up, oh sleepers!” Children do not receive Junior Holy Spirits. They can walk right from childlike innocence to being Kingdom Holy Spirited filled. We must become relentless in our own relationships with the Lord in order to model to and instruct our children; relentless in pursuit of His Kingdom, His righteousness, His love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, His wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, and the awe of the Lord, not by power or might, but by His Spirit. Will the coming generations be prepared for what’s on the horizon if we relegate this number one calling on our lives (stewarding our children) to others: day cares, schools, peers, sports, arts, entertainment, etc.? The absolute number one key in these times in which we have been given lies in being relentless with equipping this next generation to love the Lord wholeheartedly and to walk in His ways 24/7. It’s not a choice…it’s a command with eternal significance NOW.

Deuteronomy 11:1-3, 5, 7, 13, 16, 18-21, 26-28, “Love the Lord your God and keep his requirements, his decrees, his laws and his commands always. Remember today that your children were not the ones who saw and experienced the discipline of the Lord your God: his majesty, his mighty hand, his outstretched arm; the signs he performed and the things he did… It was not your children who saw what he did for you in the wilderness until you arrived at this place…But it was your own eyes that saw all these great things the Lord has done…So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today—to love the Lord your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul…Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them…Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth…See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse— the blessing if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today; the curse if you disobey the commands of the Lord your God and turn from the way that I command you today by following other gods, which you have not known.”

Matthew 5:17-19 (AMP), “Do not think that I came to do away with or undo the Law [of Moses] or the [writings of the] Prophets; I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For I assure you and most solemnly say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke [of the pen] will pass from the Law until all things [which it foreshadows] are accomplished. So whoever breaks one of the least [important] of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least [important] in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever practices and teaches them, he will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”

Matthew 22:36-40 (AMP), “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” And Jesus replied to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself [that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for others].’ The whole Law and the [writings of the] Prophets depend on these two commandments.”

WHAT We Teach Our Children Matters

Warning: Use of undefined constant videoembedder_options - assumed 'videoembedder_options' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/www/ on line 306
In 2017, I was led to create a short video for which I was given very specific words and pictures to include (YouTube Link: The Children’s Heart Cry). The content of the video contained foundational tools we are to be teaching, i.e. equipping, the children and youth of this generation, as both their present and future depends on knowing each word (truth), discerning each word (truth), and functioning in each word (truth) intimately. Rather than false love, political, social, and sexual indoctrination that condones confused, unstable, ungrounded, angry, and insecure identities in children and youth at younger and younger ages, the focus of The Children’s Heart Cry (YouTube Link) is centered around Kingdom of Heaven love, identity, gifting and purpose; precisely what Jesus demonstrated for us to BE and made available to all. I then wrote The Children’s Heart Cry (Look Inside Link) as a curriculum, i.e. an equipping manual, for parents and teachers who are called to equip the up and coming generations in BE-ing the Kingdom on Earth as it is in Heaven. Broken nations and multitudes of hurting, lost people are crying out for revelation; for justice, mercy, kindness, love, acceptance, etc. that can only be found in one place: intimately knowing the love of our Heavenly Father through the love demonstrated by His Son in the power of His Word and His Spirit. We can debate and protest the symptoms of current tragic and bizarre events for the rest of eternity and at best come up with bandaids. Unless we correct our current course of WHAT we are teaching our children, man’s temporal solutions will only create more eternal problems.

It’s time for a generation of parents and teachers to receive a revelation of how to truly change the course of a nation for the good. The enemy of our souls has already used this present generation to change our nation’s course to our detriment in the name of humanism and progressivism. There is truly only one solution for all of life’s problems and He must be introduced to the children of this generation. His luggage (all that He is and all that He purchased on behalf of all mankind) must be unpacked early on in their lives in order for them to truly be rooted and grounded in His love. Instead of simply entertaining our children with good stories and fun activities, we need to take them to ‘practice’ every single day, just like we do for hockey, soccer, football, basketball, karate, dance, music lessons, etc. or they won’t be prepared, skilled, or able to play in the game of this life. Parents and teachers understand both the age and time investment on behalf of their children when it comes to sports or music. Instead of letting the public education system, movies, television, music, video games, peers, and social media teach your children to turn away from their Heavenly Father and His ways that protect, nurture, and equip them for this life, we need to take the tiger by the collar or the bull by the horns, and deal with the elephant in the room by becoming the champions of both our own children and those who have not been given a fair shake in life’s circumstances, turning them toward their Heavenly Father every minute of every day.

Instead of teaching them to condone peers who are lost in the perversion of their sexuality and false identities, we need to teach them to love their peers with the love of Christ so powerfully and so selflessly that Holy Spirit Himself can do the convicting they have a Heavenly Father who loves each one in the power of His Son infinitely; that He has much better and bigger plans for each of their lives and only desires they receive, trust, and follow HIS leading in the power of HIS love, rather than the culture’s or self.

It’s time for another Reformation. Reformation begins when parents and teachers understand the generational ramifications of their current choices, views, and priorities. Reformation begins one family at a time having Jesus and the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth as their priority 100% of the time. Since Jehovah God IS love, since His love was demonstrated through the life/sacrifice/resurrection of His Son, Jesus, who modeled what His love looks like in every Word and action, and since every single individual on the planet desires and needs love, this mission is a no brainer. Parenting the generations truly is a mission, i.e. a calling, that we can no longer fail at. Check out The Children’s Heart Cry for a comprehension look at how to be a champion for this generation of children and youth. It matters eternally…it really does.

Age Is Not Kingdom

Warning: Use of undefined constant videoembedder_options - assumed 'videoembedder_options' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/www/ on line 306

Age is not Kingdom (Luke 17:21); it’s cultural, tradition, religious, etc., but not Kingdom. Equipping the generations for the times in which we live, always preparing and making themselves ready for the glorious second coming of our King (Matthew 22:1-4, 25:1-13; Revelations 19:7), requires Holy Spirit leading, and will absolutely in no way be based on an individual’s chronological age (Matthew 25:13-40). Just as Jehovah, Father God does not judge as man judges with regard to physical appearance, ethnicity, economic status, etc. (1 Samuel 16:7), He does not accomplish His purposes in and through His people based upon their chronological age (Isaiah 55:8-9). This cultural, traditional, and religious mindset is simply not Kingdom. Interceding for eyes and ears to be opened in the Body of Christ regarding the truth of this great deception is paramount!

Christian parents enroll their children in the latest and greatest sports, musical/artistic, educational, or entertaining activities of all kinds, as well as have the latest and greatest technological gizmos from the earliest years for infant, toddler, and preschool ages. However, when it comes to equipping their children in the ways of the Kingdom, they continue to insulate them from the meat of the Word and the power of Holy Spirit – from true intimate relationship – through cute/fun stories, snacks, busyness, and activities.

Sound the alarm (Joel 2)! Cute stories, snacks, and fun/busy activities will never prepare this generation for their Kingdom calling nor for an eternal reign with Christ! Satan absolutely knows the children of this generation are spiritual beings called to do mighty exploits in the power of the Word and in the power of the Spirit (Daniel 11:32). As long as he has parents blinded by entertainment, developmentally age appropriate, and American dream mentality, Satan can render generations ineffective for the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. While at the same time, the kingdom of darkness is strategically deceiving and destroying the children of this generation through abortion, abandonment through drug-addicted/overdosing parents, pedophilia and pornography, physical and sexual abuse by those entrusted to care for them, bullying and suicide, sickness and disease, poverty, etc.. Additionally, educational, progressive, global, and political agendas, are all part of the counterfeit great deception increasing across the Earth with social media and the arts/entertainment as their megaphone. One only has to briefly engage in the mainstream media to comprehend the horrific ramifications of our current age-appropriate parenting strategies.

The children of this generation need the empowerment of the Word AND the empowerment of Holy Spirit. Both are absolutely critical on their behalf. There is no Jr. Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit can come upon a child even in the womb! The children of this generation need to be taught during the infant, toddler, and preschool years to hear Holy Spirit’s voice, to know the identity Christ purchased for them on the cross, to worship and pray (commune with the Lord), and to be empowered by the Word and in the giftings each has been uniquely given in order to walk out their calling on this Earth. Father God has great and good plans for this generation to be a demonstration of His infinite love and power. Parents who profess Christ must begin to mature in discipleship themselves in order to disciple their children, i.e. their gifts, their legacies, etc. in the very specifics they have been gifted and called to walk out in power. If we as parents don’t equip our children in the ways of the Kingdom from birth on, the world, Satan, and the kingdom of darkness will lie, steal, kill, and destroy them, from the womb on. The kingdom of darkness is not age-appropriate nor selective. Just as in the days of Moses and Jesus, Satan is aggressively after the children of this generation because God Himself has ordained for them to arise and shine with His glory for such a time as this in the midst of all the darkness.

The same deceptive mindset impacts the elderly generation, who are to be cared for, respected, honored, and given the wisdom leadership roles they are being called to play in these times in which we live. Currently, on both ends of the age spectrum, the enemy is deceiving the masses – deceiving the Body of Christ – for his own evil agendas. An understanding of this deception must begin in the Body of Christ before it will ever impact the world.

Scripture is filled with numerous examples of individuals who would be excluded according to current cultural and religious standards, as far being too young or too old to accomplish amazing exploits, including and especially His demonstration of sending His only Son in the form of an infant. Read the following examples, just for starters.

  • Abraham (100 years old) and Sarah (90 years old) gave birth to a son, Isaac: Genesis 17:17; 21:1-8
  • Joseph (17 years old when he received his prophetic destiny of saving the nation of Israel through two dreams): Genesis 37
  • Moses (80 years old) and Aaron (83 years old) were sent to confront Pharaoh and lead the Israelites out of Egypt: Exodus 7:7
  • Joshua and Caleb (85 years old) when conquering the Promised Land: Joshua 14:10
  • Samuel (3-5 years old) when his mother brought him to the temple to minister to the Lord for his entire life: 1 Samuel 1:24-28; 2:11, 18-19, 26; 1 Samuel 3 (approximate 12 years old) when he first heard the Lord’s voice and was commissioned prophetically
  • David (10-13 years old) when anointed by Samuel, (13-15 years old) when commissioned by Saul to play the harp/drive away tormenting spirits, (15-17 years old) when he defeated Goliath: 1 Samuel 16-17
  • Daniel (approximately 11-15 years old) when Daniel was led not to eat the king’s food and began his leadership role while in captivity: Daniel 1
  • Jesus birth: Matthew 2; Luke 2 (12 years old when all who heard him in the temple were amazed by His understanding, continuing to grow in wisdom, in stature, and in favor with God and men.

What is the solution, Believers? Stop raising your children to look like the world they are being raised in – we are called to be in the world but not of it (John 17:16). Stop raising your children according to the lens of the American dream, race, culture, ethnicity, age, standards for success, etc. Get going on a deeper walk in the Word and a deeper walk in the Spirit yourself. He desires ALL of us – wholeheartedness – as opposed to compartments, pieces, parts, schedules, and time slots. He wants us to be zealous and fanatical. Case in point: sports and music icon fans have absolutely no problem comprehending zealousness or fanaticism at ANY and ALL ages.

Take your children with you on the journey of discipleship, irregardless of their age. Don’t try to entertain them, keep them quiet, or satisfy them with food, but rather teach them to hear Holy Spirit’s voice for themselves. Teach them to enter into worship, to pray, to draw/write down what they hear, see, and dream. Talk about/to the Lord continually from the womb onward. It intentional, it’s purposeful, and it requires diligence, persistence, and continual daily focus.

Deuteronomy 6:1-9, “Now this is the command; the statutes and the judgments (precepts) which the Lord your God has commanded me to teach you, so that you might do (follow, obey) them in the land which you are crossing over [the Jordan] to possess, so that you and your son and your grandson may fear and worship the Lord your God [with awe-filled reverence and profound respect], to keep [and actively do] all His statutes and His commandments which I am commanding you, all the days of your life, so that your days may be prolonged. Therefore listen, O Israel, and be careful to do them, that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly [in numbers], as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has promised you, in a land flowing with milk and honey. Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one [the only God]! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and mind and with all your soul and with all your strength [your entire being]. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be [written] on your heart and mind. You shall teach them diligently to your children [impressing God’s precepts on their minds and penetrating their hearts with His truths] and shall speak of them when you sit in your house and when you walk on the road and when you lie down and when you get up. And you shall bind them as a sign on your hand (forearm), and they shall be used as bands (frontals, frontlets) on your forehead. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”

Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go [teaching him to seek God’s wisdom and will for his abilities and talents], Even when he is old he will not depart from it.”

In conclusion, I want call attention specifically to the creative arts, as does Scripture (read the Psalms, just for starters). The creative arts are to be permitted, nurtured, developed and skilled for worship and intercession throughout all ages. We were created to express this naturally. We have to be taught to express it silently, religiously, and privately. We have to be taught to give our worship and exuberant praise to the false gods of this world (Lens: have you been to a ball game or a concert recently? Have you taken your children or have they participated for themselves?).

We love, belong to, and serve an infinitely creative Heavenly Father – all of creation is attributed to His handiwork. The entire Old Testament points to man’s need of a Savior through the mercy and compassion of a loving Father. Jesus perfectly fulfilled His calling on our behalf. Everywhere He walked, creative miracles manifested on Earth. Why? Because He was, is, and always will be One with His Father. Every where His true disciples walked, creative miracles manifested. Why? Because they became One with Christ, who was, is, and always will be One with His Father. The sons the Earth is groaning for in Romans 8:19 are being called forth. Sonship has nothing to do with chronological age. It has to do with the finished work of Christ on behalf of those who profess His Lordship, seeking first His Kingdom and His righteousness, exchanging His life for theirs. There is no more perfect time than infancy to preschool to nurture a testimony in your children that they walked with Jesus in the power of Holy Spirit and the Word all the days of their lives; to be extravagant and wholehearted for Jesus the moment you choose to dedicate and nurture your children to and for Him.

It simply has to do with being led by Holy Spirit into all Truth, irregardless of age; loving the Father and loving others in the power of Christ and in the power of the Spirit, irregardless of age. It’s most often adults who find this difficult, not children. A lost, broken, and needy world is waiting for the sons of the Most High to arise in the midst of the darkness. Expect the creative arts and musical giftings to manifest in both young and old ages; expect amazing inventions, entrepreneurial endeavors, and discoveries in both young and old ages; nurture and equip skill in their giftings beginning in the preschool years, and always point their purpose to the glory of the Lord. Be intentional about including and seeking out the mentorship of the wisdom generation who intimately walk with the Lord. The Kingdom will eternally be multi-aged – multigenerational – and includes every tongue, tribe, and nation.

A Heart For Discipling Our Legacies

I recently read a post written by Becky Fischer of Kids In Ministry International on Facebook that bears sharing again on this website.  I quote Fischer, because my husband and I were led down a path of perceiving and raising our children from infancy 25+ years ago through a Kingdom lens, all throughout having experienced what she references. Our family also traveled for several years with KIMI in both worship and teaching, and I read Fischer’s book prior to it even being published. My husband and I were led to raise our children to be Kingdom leaders, i.e. spiritual parenting, in contrast to what both Fischer and our family have observed throughout the years and nations. I concur that in 2018, in the church throughout America, Fischer’s perspective still rings truth. It’s why I wrote and released my newest curriculum in November 2017, The Children’s Heart Cry (Equipping A Generation To BE The Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth) (See Latest Products on the left side bar of this site or Amazon for more details). I include another valuable resource by Joseph Mattera at the end of this post, because it is NOW time for the Body of Christ to wise up and rise up!

Written by Becky Fischer – Kids In Ministry International

‘I travel all over the world speaking in churches and conferences across denominational lines. Here’s what I find: that children are not taken seriously as disciples of Christ in Christianity. In our churches we entertain them, play games with them. We tell them cute little Bible stories. We keep them busy, and we keep them out of our way. In our homes we love them, pray for them, bless them, and give them the best of everything. We lay our lives down for them as parents, self-sacrificing in order that our children can have what we never had.

But we seldom, in church or in our homes, seriously disciple them in the Christian faith—our faith that supposedly means more to us than life itself. And if we’re not careful, we’re going to lose them.

Take the challenge. Read my book “Redefining Children’s Ministry in the 21st Century.” 

My heart is for the children to be equipped to BE His Kingdom come, His will be done, on EARTH as it is in Heaven. This is the other great resource I referenced above:
