A Few Key Ideas:

  • The lines of Online Living and Offline Living have been blurred
  • Businesses today cannot avoid interacting with customers on social media – this is meeting people where they are
  • Social media has become a crutch
  • Do you still memorize cellphone numbers?
  • Social media has also made life convenient – do you remember the Jet’s?
  • Technology evolves faster and faster for each generation
  • Parents – How do you monitor technology usage in your homes with your children?
  • Privacy is a real issue regarding technology. While we engage technology we must be mindful of this.
  • So – who you are in private – with technology – is who you will be in public as these two worlds converge.
  • Virtual and augmented reality (i.e. – Pokemon Go, Fortnite) is here and it’s not going anywhere.
  • Everything will be social media and internet enabled (more of your offline experiences will be catered to you like your online experiences and preferences).
  • 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene

Episode 021 – [Dads/Fatherhood/Family/Parenting] – The Dad Life With Marc Jeffrey, Part 2

The Dad Life With Marc Jeffrey, Part 2 :: A Conversation About The Life of Being A Dad, Real Fatherhood, & and Parenting with Marc Jeffrey (Leader of the #DadLife & CEO of The Legacy Consulting Group)

The entire month of June, we are focused on Dads and Fatherhood! It is a TRUE statement when Pope John XXIII said, “It is easier for a Father to have children than for children to have a real father.” So all of this month, we are focusing on Dads, Fathers, Fatherhood, and parenting from the angle of the Dad. We believe that Dads often don’t get their credit and are their impact is often misunderstood. Our host Christopher J Harris, continues the month-long conversation with Mr. Marc Jeffrey, who’s the lead for The Dad Life Brand and CEO of Legacy Consulting Group.  Feeling like a living room conversation, Marc spoke very straightforward about his journey and growth into Fatherhood, his daily navigation of being a dad, and offered a number of great and simple tools that everyone would benefit from. Although it’s past, Happy Father’s Day to all of the Men out there!

(By the way: We focused on Mom’s for the month of May. Go check out our previous episodes!)

Episode 018 [Life / Men / Fathers] – How To Recover From Injury

A Message About Fatherhood & Life :: How To Recover From Injury With Christopher J Harris

All of the month of June, the Wise Idea Podcast and our host Christopher J Harris will focus on Men, Fathers, Dads, and Fatherhood. To be clear, we are celebrating the men who ARE taking care of business.  Regardless of the cultural narrative that’s been created, there are millions of dads across the world who are handling their business. Regardless of race or class many Dads step up every day to serve their families and empower their children. This month, we’ll contribute to that conversation.

 

 

A Few Key Ideas:

  • God’s plan for us is to live HEALTHY, HEALED and WHOLE lives.
  • The context for our story in Recovery From Injury involves King David and his interactions with his sons in 2 Samuel 15: 4-13.
  • 3 Things Missing From This Story – that are almost always missing from homes and families where there is trouble:
    • David doesn’t appear to have admitted his own sins with his sons.
      • You know, the problem for too many parents is the fact that when we sin we feel it is somehow beneath us to acknowledge that we had done anything wrong.
      • DON’T EVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF AN APOLOGY!
      • You cannot – I repeat – YOU CANNOT disobey God and expect your behavior NOT to have an effect on the people you care for… upon those who look up to you.
    • David looked the other way when his children sinned.
      • David NEVER punished Amnon OR Absalom for what they did.
      • BUT DAVID DID NOTHING – He shifted his parental responsibility and He didn’t pass his faith along to his children.
    • David failed to ask God for Guidance and Help.
      • Nowhere in this story do we read of David praying to God for guidance.
      • We don’t see where David asked God to help him forgive his son.
      • Why wouldn’t he do that? Why wouldn’t David cry out to God for guidance and help in the midst of this terrible mess?
      • I suspect it’s because David suffered from the same spiritual weakness that effects many Godly men and women – I call it Compartmentalization: the tendency to put our lives in different compartments.
      • Often, It’s not that we deliberately leave God out of our family life. It’s just that we don’t deliberately include Him.
  • Notice God does not :
    1. withdraw his love
    2. never disciplines in anger(1 Cor 13:5)
    3. never forces our will
  • Notice God does:
    1. Set Boundries
    2. Warns us (Gal 6:7)
    3. Chasens us for our benefit
    4. Is willing to forgive us when we return
  • Allow God To Customize A Plan of Recovery For You.

Episode 015 [Parenting/Family/Moms] – Living As A God-Centered Mom With Heather MacFadyen – Part 2

Living As A God-Centered Mom :: A Discussion About Parenting, Motherhood, and Life with Heather MacFadyen (God-Centered Moms) – Part 2

Focusing on Moms and Mother’s Day, our host Christopher J Harris, welcomes Ms. Heather MacFadyen, host of the The God-Centered Mom Podcast (where Mom’s can admit that they’re not perfect!) and a mom of four sons for a Two-Part Conversation around her story, her growth as a mom, and what’s learning as she leads thousands of mom’s around the world. While the focus is on Moms, both Moms and Dads will benefit from hearing her story and insight. Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Mom’s out there! You can listen to Part 1 of the conversation here.

A Few Key Ideas:

  • Many parents make parenting about “me” instead of it being “God-centered” – Heather M.
  • “There is a difference between Child-centered and God-centered.” – Heather M.
  • “When a child makes a mistake, our culture is looking for blame. Often that blame comes to the parents.” – Heather M.
  • “Some of our children are more compliant in younger years and that may send us the wrong message as parents as they get older.” – Heather M.
  • “The sin nature is present in all of us, including our children.” – Heather M.
  • We shouldn’t be shocked when our children rebel or misbehave. They are living out the same challenges that are in us…sin.”
  • “Until our children receive Christ, we are loving unbelievers in our home…and this is our first mission field.” – Heather M.
  • “Sometimes we expect Holy Spirit fruit when they don’t have the Holy Spirit…” – Heather M.
  • “The parenting resources that our parents were handed may not work today…” – Heather M.
  • “Our culture use to go along with religion, now they don’t.” – Heather M.
  • “Our goal should not be for us to get ourselves right, but to surrender our not-rightness…and Jesus will get you right.” – Heather M.
  • “We’ve gone from one end of the spectrum – more rules doesn’t make our kids better and no rules doesn’t make them more holy.” – Heather M.
  • “Kids are your assignment. Working outside of the home doesn’t negate that assignment.” – Heather M.
  • “God can still work in our mistakes.” – Heather M.
  • “You can have a horrible upbringing and God still use you to do incredible things.” – Heather M.
  • “We can’t take this load that we are fully responsible for everything that our kids do. In some ways God wants to develop their story that doesn’t include us.” – Heather M.

 

Parents – Are you happy, even if your kids aren’t happy? Or are you co-dependent on your child’s happiness to manage your own emotions?

Does technology impede on our lives and cause us to miss important moments?
