I am Lisa Cherry, the founder of our Frontline Moms blog. This blog is a little different. Here at Frontlinemoms, we tackle some of the “sticky subjects” of mothering kids in a world gone mad.

I love to read posts that inspire my “homemaking side,” but I must admit I need some posts that equip me to lead my children though the landmines that are destroying young lives all around us!

Predators – in bodily form, through the culture and under media cover – threaten to destroy our young on a daily basis. In my 28 years of mothering, I have cried with many of my dear friends as they watched their children leave their Christian upbringing behind and spin out of control into sexual sin. Our mission is to unmask these ungodly forces and equip ourselves with the wisdom, skills and spiritual strength to successfully lead our homes on the Frontline battle.

In days gone by, church potlucks provided the forum for great women’s meetings. Now, we meet here. With not only a change in menu but also a change in spiritual climate! In case you haven’t noticed, it’s nasty out there. Today Christian values are the “Remnant ” — not the mainstream.

Frontline Moms, we must sharpen our mothering skills and prepare our kids.

We will meet here 3-4 times a week. Our posts will mostly fall under the following headings:

  1. Unmasking Predators
  2. Aiming our homes for the Remnant
  3. Frontline Mothering
  4. Frontline Mom Guest Stories
  5. Friday Family Fun (We figure we are so busy “tackling” all week, we need some laughs by Friday!)
As we share together, I am certain we will cry a little and laugh a lot. We are strong women in Him and we will grow to meet our challenges! Will you invite your girlfriends to join us? Even if we do not always agree on how to handle our “sticky” subjects, we will be better moms for having the courage to tackle them!

You can join us by signing up on our email subscription or by subscribing via RSS

 

My Biography

Doug Cherry, Lisa Cherry

Doug & Lisa Cherry

My husband Doug and I have an ambitious #1 goal for our parenting: We want our kids when they leave our house to know the voice of their Heavenly Father and have the passion to obey Him at all costs. So far, three of ours have hit adulthood with that goal achieved! But our success was not without major battle. We nearly lost our second born, Kalyn. And since I still have a five year old as well as 6 teens and tweens at home, I am highly motivated to sharpen my own skills to finish this mama assignment strong. Doug and I have been happily married for over 31 years and are the parents of Nathan, Kalyn, Lucas, Rebekah, Hannah, Micah, Matthew, Ethan, Lydia, and Josiah. Shocking, huh? 10 babies and now a daughter-in-law and son-in-law with 4 grandbabies too! We are highly blessed! Together, our family founded Frontline Family Ministries , POTTS (Parents of Teens and Tweens), Victory Dream Center and REALITY Youth Center. My daughter Kalyn and I published Unmask the Predators and Kalyn’s Secret. Doug and I wrote STICK!: Making the Handoff to the Next Generation. When we are not driving buses of kids and teens, videotaping, writing, or traveling together, our family enjoys noisy family dinners and messy living room laughter!

    Couldn't find a comment box on your post about "cussing," so I'm leaving my comment here. The first thing I thought of (in response to your question) was the phrase in Col 3:8 (i think it is), "filthy language out of your mouth." That phrase just renders to me a picture of sewage spewing from a person's mouth, and I wonder why anyone who loves the Lord would want to start doing that??!! It's so DIS-honoring. (To both God and the person who's spewing it!)

    My other thought was this: Before I was a Christian, my own mouth wasn't too clean. But after I surrendered to His love, it seemingly cleaned itself up! Not without slips, but then I'd feel mortified, and never want to slip again. My husband's experience was exactly the same, though he became a Christian at the age of... 12! And I've heard this testimony from numerous people: That one of the first signs to themselves that their life was different was the realization that they weren't using that "cussing" or filthy language anymore.

    So your son has a valid point, and question. He wonders if these guys on the team really are Christians. In light of the above, I guess I would wonder, too. Then there's the matter of the parents. Peer pressure is powerful, and it could be some of these guys are falling prey to it. Some parents might get combative if they were told, but if it were my teenaged son, I'd want to know he was talking this way, so I and husband could deal with it.
