“The Most Excellent Way” is love, acceptance and forgiveness. These attributes of God are to be expressed to children by their parents, just
as our heavenly Father expresses them to us.
We parents (if we are born-again believers) now have the power of Christ within us to break the chains of bondage. It is no longer necessary for our past sins to be passed on to our children: “the old has gone; the new has come” (2 Corinthians 5:17b). Show them!
During our season of addiction, we
were selfishly seeking to satisfy our own
appetites and desires. We gave too little
of ourselves to our children —much
less than they needed and wanted.
They suffered because of us.
We must be careful not to bring the
selfish attitudes of our old life into our
new life at our children’s expense.
We must mend, repair and rebuild.
Our concern for their physical,
emotional and spiritual needs must meet
or exceed our concern for ourselves.
In fact, they should be intimately
involved with our new life with Christ.
It’s a whole new world for them.
Allow them to share with you the love you have received, and to grow with you in the knowledge and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ!
The Children's Meeting is a unique environment — an alternative to childcare (babysitting) — in which youngsters are encouraged to freely express their feelings of fear, hopelessness, guilt and frustration typically felt by children living with addicted parents. Our kids are validated for who they are, assured that Jesus will never leave them nor forsake them.
It's all about LOVING!

"Permit little children,
and forbid them not,
to come unto Me.
"For of such is the
kingdom of heaven."
Matthew 19:14 KJV
"Whoever receives one
little child like this in My name receives Me.
Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin,
it would be better for him
if a millstone were hung around his neck,
and he were drowned
in the depth of the sea.”
Matthew 18:5-7 NKJV
