Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Back-To-School Butterflies - #8093
There’s a promise from God that’s been an anchor for us as parents for a long time and maybe it might help you worry a little less, nag a little less, be a little less controlling or frustrating your kids with smother love.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - What You Bring in the Door - #5644
In many ways you set a tone when you walk in the door and you'll probably have to live with that tone for hours to come. After a stressful day it's just human nature to walk in with a pretty self-focused mind set, carrying the garbage of the day, which we then proceed to dump all over our loved ones! But, wouldn't you like to put your name in our word for today? "________ returned home to bless his or her family."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Straight to the Throne - #4451
How many times have we sincerely promised we'd pray for someone and forgotten? And while someone's promise to pray for us may be an encouragement, it's nothing like actually hearing them pray for you, right then and there. Don't you think it's time we got over this feeling of awkwardness and timidity about praying with each other?

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Only Way to Build a Home - #4440
The way that Indian man built his home decades ago is still the only way to build a home - one building block at a time. And those building blocks are called days. Not years, not months, not weeks - days.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Battle over "The Precious" - #4448
The ring in Lord of the Rings is fantasy. The battle over "The Precious" is not. Because we all have something or someone in our life that is, for us, "The Precious." We can't let go of it. And like the ring in Tolkien's stories, the longer and more tightly we hold onto it, the more it slowly destroys us.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Singular Love - #4431
It really makes a difference when you focus the warmth of the sun on one spot. It really makes a difference when you focus the warmth of your love on one person. Especially if that person is the life partner you have or one of the children God has entrusted to you. The question for today isn't whether you love your family - I'm sure you do. The question is this: does each member of your family feel loved by you? Now, that may depend on how much focused love they get from you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Family Infections - #4436
Every family has them - those germs that get passed around the family. And they're not all the kind you go to a doctor for. The most virulent, most damaging family infections of all come from moral germs, spiritual germs, some of which have infected generations and are in the process right now of being passed on to yet another generation.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Silent Guys - #4308
Now if you ask most women, that's part of the problem in our relationships. This guy thing called "not much talking." Or at least not much talking about what's really going on inside us. Oh, we'll talk about work and sports and cars and "stuff." But too many men just don't talk much about what they're feeling ... about what they need ... about what's hurting, what they're hoping for, what's wrong.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Unappreciated Gifts - #4318
It hurts to make something special for someone you love - and then to give it and have it go unnoticed and unappreciated. God knows that feeling. There's not a day that goes by that He doesn't give us special gifts from His hand. As James 1:17 says, "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father."
