Elf on the Shelf. Why the huge success? How knowing this can improve your health & life.

snowday2014CHRISTMAS TIME!! I love Christmas time.  This is my very favorite time of the year.  I am like a little kid.  I love to listen to Christmas music, look at lights, and watch the “classic” Christmas movies like: Rudolf; Frosty the Snowman; and we now include The Elf on the Shelf movie as one of the “classics” that we love to watch with the boys!

Speaking of Elf on the Shelf, 2 sisters who are friends of mine and LeAnne are the creators along with their mom.  We are very excited and thankful for the success they have seen from this product.  Even though at The Johnson’s we handle the whole “santa claus” thing differently than many parents do, our boys still love doing the whole “elf on the shelf” thing.  I mean they really get into it and love playing along with the whole idea of it.  So again i am excited about all the huge success our 2 friends have had with this and Thankful for them and what God is doing for them.

The main reason I bring them up and their success story with the Elf on the Shelf is to talk with you about the Power of The Word and Confession of The Word.  Several years ago when this product was first really taking off, one of the sisters met with me.  I asked her what were some of the main reasons for their success.  Here are her 2 reasons i remember the most:

#1 Their Faith in God, and His Favor on their lives

#2 Their parents reading God’s Word and Confessing His promises over them all their lives.

She went on to tell me specific scriptures that their parents would read and say out loud over them day after day, year after year.  And anyone can say what they want, but in the end it wasnt the hard work, the consistent effort of work and faith, and it wasnt luck, it was their Faith in God, and in His promises that had been spoken over them for years.  Now I know all the other stuff was an important part, yet it was not the most important.

So this reminds me and I want it to remind you of the power of Confessing out loud God’s blessings and promises, from His Word, over your kids.  And that same is true as it concerns you.  Read and say out loud His promises over yourself.  Put His Word IN you and IN your kids constantly.  It is the most powerful thing I believe any of us can do for our kids and for ourselves.  Have a great and awesome Merry Christmas season!! Ye baby!
