Ever have times when, while interacting with family members around the house, you are certain you are going to blow your stack?
Someone left the milk out to spoil. Again.
The shoes in the entryway aren't lined up neatly in rows as you'd asked. They are scattered all over the place looking like a bomb blew up in a shoe store!
The chores aren’t done on time—or in the right way.
Someone makes a complete mess of the kitchen. Yes. The kitchen you just spent a great deal of time cleaning.
The kids are sluggish getting out the door to an event and now it threatens to make the entire family late.
Something you asked someone to do didn’t get done and now it messes up your day. And on and on and on…..
Interruptions. Inconvienences. Delays. Derailments.
When you can’t always control the look of your house–or the actions of those living in it–do you sometimes also have a hard time controlling your temper and your tongue? Do you find yourself behaving biblically backwards—being slow to listen, quick to speak and quick to become angry?
Fear not. Help is here. Time to take the " Pause Before You Pounce " challenge.
This challenge includes five days of encouraging and practical short devotions that will not only inspire you to interact prayerfully and properly with the members of your family, it will also give you some practical ways to do it along with a small daily challenge designed to bring BIG change! Oh, and a memory verse on anger to work on over the course of the challenge. The idea-packed emails will automatically come to you daily for five days starting with the day you sign up.

Your family will thank you. :-)
