Never Give Up – Pray for our youth

My thoughts and prayers

My thoughts and prayers

So school’s officially over, at least til summer school. I’ve been working with youth professionally now for over 10 years, and recently became a substitute teacher within my county. Though I’m aware that we have a serious problem with our young people, I’m also aware that there’s a major problem with parenting as well.

I haven’t always been the best parent in dealing or handling a situation, but I always handled things in love, and over time, God has taught me to change my patterns. What I’ve learned is to never administer discipline in anger; wait until you calm down. Be patient and hug your child afterward. Be firm, fair, AND caring. Don’t be angry or cruel. Teach your child that you are the parent and you are in control. Don’t discipline until you are under control.

I pray someone who reads this is encouraged to change their patterns and way of thinking as well. If your child is now grown, teach them to teach their own better some day and just maybe we can help them make a difference. We cannot give up on the young folks. My mother always believed in me even though my choices in life appeared to take me down dead-end roads.

Never Give Up!

Peace and Blessings always!

About AskBrotherArt

Brother Art and his wife started a ministry called, “Destiny” in 1999. Destiny Entertainment Gospel Records (DEG Records), is an independent ministry/label, birthed from the closed doors and lack of supporting contacts he once had. However, God gave them the vision, and without the vision, the people perish (Proverbs 29:18). The ministry's motto (You Can't Hold Me Back), stands firm on the scripture found in Ephesians 1:4-5 “Long ago, even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes. His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us to Himself through Jesus Christ. And this gave Him great pleasure.” Now through the tools of networks, technology, and music, Brother Art is committed to a diverse genre; offering innovative music with professional artistic quality. The ministry's overall purpose is to maximize the potential of his musical vision, spiritually, commercially, and artistically. Albums available by Brother Art & Destiny via iTunes and all major online stores: "Real Love, " and "Amazing God of Love"
