Doorposts: Bible-Based Parenting & Character Training Resources & an Amazing Giveaway!!

In addition to the Bible--the supreme word on raising children--where do you get your favorite child-rearing material? Do you have a good source for Godly resources on modesty, purity, and character training?  

My favorite site for all-things-parenting is Doorposts.

{Note: I am in no way compensated by Doorposts.}

I am a new Doorposts fan, thanks to my blogging friend Tauna, who introduced me to them on her site. Doorposts is a Christian publishing company specializing in "Bible-based parenting and character training materials." Their products include Bible studies, resources for child-raising, scripture memorization tools and catechism, even Bible-based toys for children. 

Some of my personal favorite Doorposts products include the following, all of which I own and use:

The "If-Then" Chart

The "If-Then" Chart is a disciplinary tool to use with your children. In the first column is the offense; in the second column, what the Bible says about that offense; and in the third column, you can write or draw in the punishment for such offense.

We ordered the color chart (8.5x11, laminated) and it resides on the refrigerator. What I LOVE about the "If-Then" Chart is that I am set off pretty easily by disrespect and disobedience, which has resulted in me exasperating my children--a sin. This chart gives me time to stop, bring the offending child to the refrigerator, and say a quick prayer for calm and wisdom. I simply point to the picture on the chart, read the accompanying scripture, and the child sees what her punishment will be.

Our "If-Then" Chart

The "If-Then Chart" brings consistency to our discipline because the punishment is clear for the offense, so every time my daughter argues with me or complains, she knows to expect an additional chore. She knows her punishment, and I don't have to rack my brain trying to think of an appropriate way to handle her offense. 

We have drawn in spoons, indicating that offense requires a certain number of swats.

I highly recommend the "If-Then" Chart if, like me, you struggle with being consistent in disciplining your children. The chart really works. There are other handy-dandy charts for training your children that you should check out; I've heard the Brother Offended Checklist is great, too!

Watchwords, Scripture in Hand Calligraphy

I am always on the lookout for classic depictions of scripture to hang in our house. I truly believe that being surrounded by God's Word--writing it on the doorposts and gates of your house--provides opportunity to meditate on it, discuss it with others and apply to our lives. So when Doorposts sent a $10 coupon to its email subscribers, I
jumped on the opportunity to buy the Watchwords, Scripture in Hand Calligraphy

This verse is in our bedroom. Appropriate, huh?!

Printed on cream parchment, these 12 verses in calligraphy are formatted to fit in 5x7 frames (unmatted) or in 8x10 frames (matted or unmatted)

In the laundry room. The place I need the most inspiration!

They are a beautiful addition to our home. 

Framed & sitting in our living room where disorder happens most often.
The verses included are:

Plus, they make great gifts! Think: weddings, housewarming, new babies, Christmas, birthdays, or just because.

Located in our kitchen

Not only does Doorposts sell God-honoring products for every member of the family, but they also write one of my favorite blogs, Doorposts of Your House. Right now, they are going through Doorposts' excellent new Bible study for busy mamas. I recently won a copy of Thirty Days of Bible Study for Busy Mamas: Colossians 3 and can't wait to dig in!

Doorposts' products are all high-quality, and their customer service is excellent! I cannot speak more highly of this company and would recommend it to anyone.

Even though I am a new Doorposts fan, I couldn't be more thrilled to share my love for Doorposts with you, my lovely readers. Doorposts has generously offered one special reader a $25 gift certificate to anything in their online store. Enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below!

The giveaway will be open through Tuesday, July 31, at 12:00 a.m. CDT. I will contact the winner, who will have 48 hours to reply. Thanks and good luck!
