After growing up in a mixed, dysfunctional household…whats the outcome? Well as I listen to my Mothers story, either sold or given away for a debt then raped by the son of the women raising her and forced into a marriage at age fourteen, how can she become a good example?

I feel this is so over looked in so many Churches, but yet is also one of the most common generational curses out there.
Colossians 3:8 But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. 9 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.
This morning we continued our study on the life of David. I am struck by the consequences of his sin but also struck by his lack of involvement in family life. Don’t get me wrong.
