Mother Teresa once said, “If you want to change the world, go home and love your family.”
Likewise, I’ve found that most of the positive, effective, and influential people I’ve met over the years came from a solid home with parents that nurtured and believed in them. Of course, there will always be exceptions to this, but the fact remains that parents have an opportunity to greatly influence the lives of growing children.
Here’s the interesting part in all of this: it’s not just the kids that we’re impacting. 1 Peter 3:1 tells us that a husband can be won over by the behavior of his wife. In other words, family life has a big effect on the people we live with. Even now, lives are being shaped within the four walls of your home.
Don’t waste the opportunity to impact lives in a positive way.

Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.
She began her publishing journey about twelve years ago when she pioneered one of the first online magazines for Christian women, known at the time as “Christian Women Online Magazine.” After three years, Darlene left CWO to blog as a solo author at Time-Warp Wife Ministries.
It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical Fitness. Reshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.
Author of more than 15 books, Darlene continues to write and to minister to her readers through her blog at TimeWarpWife.com.
