Disciplining Children

Disciplining Children

2021-04-1801:04:21

Hey friends! Thank you for being here as we share our hearts on some rather important (and debated) philosophies when it comes to disciplining children. We are limited in our direct experience as parents in that our children are very little, but we do have perspective from our childhood that we want to offer as teaching points as well. Our goal is not to tell you what is right and what is wrong, nor how you ought to discipline your own children, but merely to have a discussion and provide our two cents. If we can give you any tools to add to your parenting toolbelt, then our goal will be reached. May God grant you wisdom, patience, and love as you navigate what it means to parent well.Compassion InternationalBe a part of releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name at compassion.com/myhouse Follow us on IG:@asformeandmyhousepodcast@milenaciciotti @jordanciciottiSubscribe to As For Me and My House Podcast and Milena’s Channel on YouTubeJoin our Facebook Group: As For Me and My House PodcastA loving environment to talk all things podcast, share prayer requests and praise reports!

Thank you all for your questions and perspectives for this episode!  We learned a ton and hope you found our discussion beneficial for you if you've ever walked (or are now walking) in a season of anger, frustration, uncertainty, or worry due to postpartum depression.  It is totally possible and normal for fathers to experience the ripple effects of this also, and their feelings should not be stifled.  Press into the Lord Jesus with your spouse and communicate your hearts to one another during a time of peace and clarity of thought.  May the lessons we learned encourage, empower, equip, and and enable you to better serve and love those in your life who may be wrestling with the whirlwind of postpartum emotions that come with being a new parent.  Lord bless!Compassion InternationalBe a part of releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name at compassion.com/myhouse *When you sponsor a child, you'll receive a free tee shirt from Milena's Lion of Judah Collection while supplies last!  If you're interested in this option, click the above link and a pop up will direct you to more info!Follow us on IG and share us on your IG stories for a chance to win coffee on us this week!@asformeandmyhousepodcast@milenaciciotti @jordanciciottiSubscribe to As For Me and My House Podcast and Milena’s Channel on YouTubeJoin our Facebook Group: As For Me and My House PodcastA loving environment to talk all things podcast, share prayer requests and praise reports!

Hey y'all!  Thanks for being here.  We had a blast with this episode, and as you can imagine, there's a ton we wanted to unpack as we share some of these things that are deeply important to us.  As a disclaimer, if there is something that we say we don't subscribe to, that doesn't mean we absolutely never do it, rather, we openly acknowledge it as wrong and (by God's grace) fight to rid it from our habitual nature.  In other words, we are not wanting to come off as hypocritical, and instead want to echo Paul's wording in Philippians 3:12 - "Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own."  What we have found to be true in our lives is that when we make the things of God (as revealed to us in His Word) a habit, then we are actually liberated and not restricted by bring Him honor.Compassion InternationalBe a part of releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name at compassion.com/myhouse Follow us on IG and share us on your IG stories for a chance to win coffee on us this week!@asformeandmyhousepodcast@milenaciciotti @jordanciciottiSubscribe to As For Me and My House Podcast and Milena’s Channel on YouTubeJoin our Facebook Group: As For Me and My House PodcastA loving environment to talk all things podcast, share prayer requests and praise reports!

Hey everyone!  So glad you're here!!  On this episode, we wanted to take an honest look at some of the challenges, struggles, and ideologies that our culture is immersed in regarding what it means to be masculine.  In an age of questioning the past traditions in hopes of a better tomorrow, we who follow Jesus ought to be on the cutting edge of conversations that describe the roles, responsibilities, and philosophy of manliness.  In a world that has perverted and even manipulated what it means to be a man, husband, and father, it is our conviction to turn to the Scriptures as our one and only source of Truth in understanding manhood.  While the world forces husbands to be either dominating or pacifying in their marriage, the Bible gives a tertiary option to be a servant-leader.  While the world tells fathers to either straighten up their kids with harsh beatings or simply sit back and let your child parent YOU, the Word of God says to discipline in love, without provoking your children to anger (or trauma).  We only scratch the surface of the ways society has influenced manhood in this episode, but we hope it serves as a starting point for conversations in your own context.  As always, we are so grateful to God for your love and support!  It is mutual on our end, too.  For the glory of God alone!

What Convicts Us

What Convicts Us

Hey friends!  This episode gets a little juicy as we open up our hearts--our souls--to you in attempt to express the things that convict us to our core.  It is important to understand where we are coming from when we speak of convictions.  We are Bible-believing followers of Jesus and we choose to trust Him instead of the world as our standard of truth.  That foundation is what we are building on and motivated by in our convictions.  The word "conviction" means more than just a feeling or an opinion.  It is a deep-seated passion that remains constant regardless of popular opinion or societal norms.  We pray this blesses you and encourages boldness in your faith.  Lord bless!Compassion InternationalBe a part of releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name at compassion.com/myhouse *We are working on a HUGE initiative with Compassion in Tanzania to raise $1.1M to meet critical needs and ask that you would prayerfully consider donating to care for those in extreme poverty while also bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to them.  Check out the above link for more info!Follow us on IG and share us on your IG stories for a chance to win coffee on us this week!@asformeandmyhousepodcast@milenaciciotti @jordanciciottiSubscribe to As For Me and My House Podcast and Milena’s Channel on YouTubeJoin our Facebook Group: As For Me and My House PodcastA loving environment to talk all things podcast, share prayer requests and praise reports!

Hey y'all!  On this episode, we share some thoughts on what it means to indoctrinate, teach, guide, and discipline your children.  Coming from the Judeo-Christian worldview, the Bible--God's Word--is our guide and ultimate source of absolute truth.  You may not agree with us, and that is okay--just know if you aren't teaching your child as they grow, someone or something WILL teach them.  Our prayer for ourselves and for you all listening is that God would shape and prepare us for the calling to guide and influence the next generation for His glory and purposes.  Lord bless you!Compassion InternationalBe a part of releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name at compassion.com/myhouse  (https://www.compassion.com/sponsor_a_child/?referer=602217)*We are working on a HUGE initiative with Compassion in Tanzania to raise $1.1M to meet critical needs and ask that you would prayerfully consider donating to care for those in extreme poverty while also bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to them.  Check out the above link for more info!Follow us on IG and share us on your IG stories for a chance to win coffee on us this week!@asformeandmyhousepodcast (https://www.instagram.com/asformeandmyhousepodcast/?hl=en)@milenaciciotti  (https://www.instagram.com/milenaciciotti/?hl=en)@jordanciciotti (https://www.instagram.com/jordanciciotti/?hl=en)Subscribe to As For Me and My House Podcast (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCch2cmvxUAqDBslSeRcWPzw) and Milena’s Channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGmDvEa2u0FO5NhH5x2FGZQ) on YouTube Join our Facebook Group: As For Me and My House Podcast (https://www.facebook.com/groups/asformeandmyhousepodcast/)  A loving environment to talk all things podcast, share prayer requests and praise reports!

hi your podcast is my absolute favorite most calming podcast out there but I have one question. you mentioned you don't spank and you seem to go to the Bible alot but what about the verse, He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes. Proverbs 13:24 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/pro.13.24.KJV

To the point that you made about saying “let’s not do that” or “no thank you” I am a nanny and the two year old that i nannied copied me when I told him “no thank you” when he was not supposed to be doing something. He started telling his sister “no thank you” when she did something that he did not like. And he also copied me when I said “thank you so much” to a checkout lady at the store. Cutest thing and most rewarding moment ever.

Im sorry this is long., but I really hope you will read, if you do hopefully it will make you two very proud of yourselves and confirm this is what God wanted you to do. I have been having a really hard time dealing with complication and understanding of my job. I feel I am 100% in the wrong place and couldn't understand why I cant get another job. I felt like there was so much more for me out there but nothing was happening. I wouldn't say I lost faith, I always knew God has something for me in his own time, but I fought against his will by being impatient. I am in such a negative place that I got wrapped up in it all and started being negative myself and really forgot about God. There would be moments where it would hit me, I hadn't talked to God in a good while. So once I realized where I was at with myself, the people I was surrounded by, and it was himpering me being a woman of God, all I wanted was to get out. Hints the impatiens. With all the rush rush to leave, being depressed, and feeling like I was playing tug-a-war with my own will and God's, it dove me to have to get on anxiety medicine. I knew it would help me plant my feet back on the ground and see more clearly, but it was also hard for me to give in to the medication because, not including me, I grew up with many different drugs in my family. So it was hard for me to not look at this script as a "drug". So even though I knew I needed this it made me very emotional. But, I have stuck with it. I have told myself that I will get off of them one day because I know that the lord would see me threw and I have no need to worry. It took me hitting rock bottom to see it, his will. So with the medicine and some clarity, I have been able to just look at my job as just a get by. That the only thing that mattered was how I needed to be in my faith, how I needed to work on being a better woman of God and who he wants me to be as a person not an "employee" and being successful, and doing better, more, in my serving. For God, my friends and family, my husband, strangers. I realized that I almost was idolizing myself. How could I be successful, how could I be happy. But now I cant hear a gospel song, pray, look at or talk about the most precious gift he has given me, love of and for my husbands without crying. My blessings and happiness is all around me. It was always there, I was just looking for it somewhere else, my job. I know this has been long I'm sorry, but Im getting to my point. I have watched your youtube videos ever since you found out you were pregnant with your first. I was browsing through videos on pregnancy and yours came up. Something about you, and Jordan, and the atmosphere and feeling yall put out just grabbed ahold of me. I'm not a mom, I couldn't relate to any of your videos, but I loved watching you two. I loved to watch two people so deep in their relationship with God, and God in their marriage. And I just thought your family and content was just so adorable. There was something so organic about it. Your style in clothes, music, just your hole taste of things. Sorry, tangent, ha. But it was like yall made me want to be better. I have watched every video since. But anyway I knew about yalls podcast before your move. I hadn't downloaded the app to listen until yesterday. I now have listened to 1,2,3.. and now 4. So my point..I know finally,,, is after all my confusion, stress, anxiety, inpatients I started grasping on to the real important things that mattered. First God, what he wants from me and how I need to better serve him, my love and life with my husband. I have been truly so much happier since everything started becoming clear. then I listened to this recording. And let me tell you, everything yall said was like I was reading from the bible and a verse stood out to me. I feel I was ment to hear this, hear your guidance and knowledge. Everything just wrapped all my knew feelings together and confirmed this was it. This is what God has been wanting me to do, be still, and that I have been doing a "good job" in stepping away from my own understanding and towards his. Lol yall spoke to my soul. I will never forget this recording and I know all your advice will stay with me and I'll apply these things through every step and season with God. I am older than you two, 29, but you two are so more educated in the word and are very wise. I cant wait to listen to more. And yes this podcast is doing exactly what you intended it to do. You spoke to me tonight, and things are more clear than they were before and I am now diving into a much deeper level of understanding. I will now have a greater more sincere relationship with God. For that is the only purpose I need to focuse on. I thank you for giving that to me, for opening my eyes further more so I can see.

Hi Milena and Jordan. I have been listening to your podcast for the past few months now. And I remember u mentioned that sometimes u refer to qotquestions.org. I just have a question bec my friend who's a Baptist kept insisting that evangelical church nowadays are not supposed to be having WOMEN as preachers/pastors and it should only be MEN who have the right to be onstage and preach to people. I kind of disagree with that. So when I went online one time, I came across this answer from gotquestions.org and they said the same thing. Lol. I mean, accdg to the Word of God, that ‘In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams... (Acts2:17) I just thought that in North America, nowadays there are so many women who are proactive when it comes to spreading the Gospel. At school, church, in different communities, etc. But I dunno why Baptists' reasoning seem absurd when they insist that only men should be eligible to become PASTORS. they claim it is due to Hierarchy. That men should be the head of the family and same thing when it comes to church. Men should lead??? And not women?What do u think of this, by the way? I found u two are excellent in explaining things when it comes to God's Words... I honestly believe that you are using your gifts to the fullest when you put up your podcast. I can never thank u two enough for simply sharing your heart with us... I wish I can come visit to Detroit and meet you and just have pics. Lol. I'd be super super honored.... But anyhoo anyhow....🤗 I am really looking forward to hear your insight about this.... Some enlightenment form you guys will be very much and deeply appreciated. Thank you!!!!!!

Had to tame the tongue this morning. This ep came in good timing. I cant agree with everything said but our words do have real power. Faith, power of decreeing, ask & shall receive (but of course everything in context).

Thanks for your desire to serve others by talking about God. I couldn't keep listening, however, because of the undertones of M wanting to be in charge and J sounding nervous to speak because she would cut him off so much and correct him all the time. As a wife, I get that. I struggle with it a lot too. I'm sure she's not disrespecting him intentionally, but it kind of boils down to that. This could also be the reason for your "not really" disagreement in the first place. Remember in Genesis, part of the curse placed on us is that the woman will always try to Lord it over the man. We are so used to it we don't even realize it. May the Holy Spirit speak to your hearts in His Word, even in this regard.

If you were actually trying to do your evolution and creationist episode CORRECTLY and from a genuine place of truth you’d bring on both an evolution perspective and creationist. I’ll volunteer if you’d like to do this again, I run a successful podcast, The Philosophy Guy and I would be more than happy to come on
