Home life is H-A-R-D.
There is no way around it. There will always be challenges, struggles, and defeats. The “Grin and bear it” strategy only works so long before family life is drained of happiness and doubts, fears, and frustration rise.
Is there more to the Christian home than gutting it out?
How does a rediscovery of joy sound?
Certainly, we enjoy our spouse or child(ren) but we can’t depend on them to be our reservoir of joy. Maybe you’re thinking, “Why can’t the joy that my friends seem to have make an appearance in my home?”
When we lose joy, it is because we have lost sight of joy’s unending source which must be rediscovered and remembered in our Christian homes.
Jesus is our source of joy. He has given us all the reason in the world to have joy through our identity as new creations in him. This joy grows over time and gives us the strength and motivation to remain faithful to discipleship and outreach in and through our homes.
We invite you
Gather your family together and rediscover this joy through 5:17 People Week!
5:17 People Week is a 7-day devotional that helps families rediscover their identity as new creations in Christ.
Set a new course!
For life in your home that endures through trials and causes real growth in Christlikeness.
What you get:
Each devotional begins with a light-hearted, 2-4 minute video that introduces that day’s identity statement.
Each devotional includes a scripture, story, and discussion questions.
In a world shouting that I can be whatever I want and do whatever I feel …..it was refreshing to hear the voice of TRUTH about who I am, according to my Creator. “Who am I?” is not a question I have to wrestle with or try to figure out….my Creator has already answered that question. I can rest and cease striving.
