Hf #012: What does it really mean to manage a Gospel-Centered home?

on September 15, 2015 by Jami Balmet 6 comments

What does it mean to live out a Gospel-Centered home? How we define the Gospel – and live it out in our homes – can have a profound impact. But it takes intentional thought and purpose in our homemaking to focus on Gospel-Centered living within our home. From our marriages, to our kids, to our day-to-day activities – the Gospel impacts our lives fully and has the power to transform even the most mundane of tasks. That’s what today’s episode is focused on.

Having a Gospel-Centered home means purposefully and intentionally creating the goals, activities, and atmosphere in the home to be firmly centered on the Gospel. But this gets more specific than just running a Christian household.

It means intentionally focusing on the GOSPEL of Christ in all aspects of our lives: in parenting our children, in our relationship with our husbands, how we spend our time the priorities we make throughout the day, and how we use those small pockets of extra time. Let’s dive in!

Book of the week:

What is the GospelWhat is the Gospel – Greg Gilbert

This is a quick, short book and won’t take you very long to read. But I highly recommend that everyone – even the seasoned Christian, get this book and read through it as a family. Jason and I are both reading it now and when our boys get older, we plan on reading it together as a family. I think we throw the term “Gospel” around so often, that we become numb to the meaning of it. And yet, the Gospel should be our primary focus in our homes. We need to teach it to our kids, hide it in our hearts, and have it open for display to those who come into our homes.

You need a thorough understanding of the Gospel, it’s critical! I highly recommend you check out this short book. You can get the hardcover for $11 currently on Amazon or it looks like they have it in pamphlet form for $2.99 on Amazon! I’m not sure if that’s the entire book, but it’s worth checking out if finances are tight.

  1. Hi Jami,

    Thanks a lot for the wonderful podcasts. I’m officially hooked up to them.
    It is a great inspiration listening to you as a new believer of our Lord, since a couple of months I’ve decided that believing in Him is not something you have to be ashamed of. Here in The Netherlands, where I live, religion is not such an important thing and is difficult to find people that are so passionate as you guys are there in the US.
    Keep the good work and you have a fan overseas! 😉
    Kind regards,
    Ingrid

  2. Thank you so much for this episode. This is only my second one I’ve listened to and I am hooked. This is very encouraging and lots of good verses and books I now need to check out. Going to share this with the ladies in my Bible Study.

  3. Jami,
    I can’t remember if it was this podcast or another one, you mentioned working with your older boys to memorize the Word. Well, that challenged me. In my reading the next day I read Ps 20, so I tried it out verse 7 with my almost-3-year-old boy and it stuck!!! We made up a little song, and later I made a color page for him and my 1-yr-old to do. He sings it all the time!
    Thanks for the idea!
    ~Anna
