CPC 2014 Breakout Session 6 Notes

Speaker: Craig Jutila
Title: Faith and the Modern Family: What Should I Feed My Time Starved Kids?
  • Introduction
    • Is raising a family today easier or harder than it was 20 years ago?
    • A big obstacle for families today is too many choices.
    • 5 things you need to feed your kids…
  • Feed them a healthy life pace.
    • Define your season
      • Know how much time you have
      • Know where you are in life
    • Work at work
      • There’s a difference between hardwork and overwork
    • End to end
      • Multitasking used to not be as easy because of limitations by technology
      • Multitasking hurts us long term.
    • No your boundaries
      • We must learn to say no to less important choices.
      • We tend to compare ourselves to others and what they are doing and feel like we aren’t living up to par.
      • Instead of making a “to-do” list, make a “to-stop-doing” list.
      • We shouldn’t expect everyone to be at everything we plan in ministry.
    • Simply Simplify
      • Screen your calls
      • Turn off cellphones
      • Get rid of home phone
      • Let voicemail answer
      • Answer email twice daily
      • Digitize everything
  • Feed them moments of rest
    • Many times we tend to always say yes to doing more things.
    • Do we need to focus more on doing less bad things or doing less good things?
    • 5 steps for moments of rest
      • Schedule it
      • Say no
      • Plan ahead
      • Don’t worry
      • Smarter not harder
  • Feed them uninterrupted time together
    • Ephesians 5:15-16
    • You must be intentional about planning time together that’s uninterrupted.
    • Do something that you enjoy doing. You don’t have to sit and stare at each other.
