Parents

The Ten Commandments Of A Christian Softball Parent

This year we will be examining how to be a Christian Softball parent. Each month we will feature one of the commandments in an article. Hopefully each of us will take a closer look on how we can be a better Christian Softball parent for our players. It is up to us as Christians to change the culture of youth softball by modeling the attributes of Christ in all aspects of the game. In December of this year you will have the ability to sign the Christian Softball Parents Pledge and hopefully post it on your refrigerator for all to see. Join us on the journey to being a better Christian Softball Parent!

Thou shall make softball fun

"I'd like to do some DEVOTIONALS with my player. Where can I find good, sports-related material?"

Devotionals are a GREAT way to start a tournament, end a practice, or just provide some solid family-bonding. You can find TONS of sports-related devotionals here.

 

"I'd like to do some BIBLE STUDIES with my player. Where can I find good, sports-related material?"

Like devotionals, Bible studies provide awesome family-bonding experiences. They are usually a little longer and more in-depth than devotionals. Think of them as spiritual workouts! You can find TONS of sports-related Bible studies here.

 

"I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in Truth."

 

[3 John 1:4]
