Doorposts' Plants Grown Up and Polished Cornerstones


#1

I wanted to mention these two resources, Plants Grown Up and Polished Cornerstones by Doorposts, to anyone who might be looking or would be interested in discipling their sons and daughters in the Lord.

Psalm 144:15 says “Happy is that people, that is in such a case; yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.”

What such a case?

Psalm 144:12-14 says “That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as cornerstones, polished after the similitude of a palace:
That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:
That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.”

As Pam Forster writes about verse 12, “This means that in their teens their lives can be bearing fruit! Don’t believe those parents who tell you that the teen years must be years of turmoil and rebellion! They can be years of joy as a young person moves from childhood into maturity. (…) If we have been faithful in training up a child “in the way he should go”, through discipline, example, and prayer, we can expect or young men and young ladies to begin bearing fruit of a godly life while they are still young.”

These materials are such a great help to parents who want to invest their time and effort into discipleship of their children. This saves the parent time and gives so many different ideas and options for a lifetime of projects.

This is exactly how I want to spend my time with my children in their growing up years and maybe someone else here is in search of something like this.

This link is for the discounted package which includes these two resources, and I love everything that it includes and I recommend it, but you can just click on each of the resources from there and go check out samples of each material that you are interested in (Plants Grown Up/Polished Cornerstones):

You know, these resources remind me so much of the unit studies Far Above Rubies and Blessed is the Man by Lynda Coats, with the focus on Bible/Character/etc. I love those unit studies designed for high school (which can be started in middle school if desired)! If you haven’t heard of them before you can also check out sample pages from them at:

I especially like FAR. However, these unit studies can and should be tailored to serve you though as you teach your children.
