How To Get Your Wayward cChildren Back

Posted by Aaron Walker on Mar 29, 2021 9:00:00 AM

Some of you guys, my heart goes out for you today because you're dealing with children that you have a broken relationship with. You don't have any ties, any connections.

Here's what I want you to do today. Reach out to those kids today with maybe a word of encouragement, maybe a hug on them, love on them. Tell them that you love them.

I am not saying condone what they've done. We have a lot of kids out there that are knuckleheads that have done the wrong thing. They've made bad decisions. But let me remind you of something. You made some bad decisions yourself as a child, as a teenager, as a young adult. Don't hold them to a standard that you're not willing to adhere to yourself when you were a younger kid. Let's show some grace.

Be the bigger person. What I am saying is there is nothing that they would do that would separate my love and willingness to go out and pursue them. Maybe you need to say "Hey I don't agree with what you're doing but I want you to know that I will spend my last quarter helping you if you're willing to change."

Don't love your passbook more than you do your kid. You got to love them back to you not beat them into submission.

My Teenager is Having Sex And I Don't Know What To Do

Posted by Aaron Walker on Mar 24, 2021 9:09:06 AM

Twenty years ago, my eldest just started driving. While I was teaching her I asked her to speed up until both of us are nervous. I wasn't even sure how fast we were going! And then I asked her to slow down. She asked me why I asked her to do that, and I answered because I want her to know what it will do. I took the mystery out of that driving experience, which could get her into trouble. Since then Brooke has not gotten any speeding ticket.

This past week, one of the Mastermind members came to the group and told us his teenage daughter is having sex. It broke our hearts. Listen, I am not casting stones at anyone. Dads, I am talking to you! We can do preventive measures to avoid this. Moms, you're very important.


We used to go to the mountains once a year and I remove my dad hat off. I made it comfortable for them to to talk about anything. And yes, we talked about sex. I didn't make them feel it's taboo! I didn't tell them "Go talk to your Mom!"
I remember I talked to them one at a time. I told them, "no man on the planet is going to tell you the truth like I will about the topic of sex." So I told them what men are thinking, what they will say that are all lies. I gave them a book, Every Man's Battle because I want them to understand how a man thinks.


My point is, we have to open the conversation to talk to our kids. Men, never again should you tell them to talk to your wife about things that you can.
Keep in mind, you also need to be a good model.


God entrusted us our kids to teach them. Take time. Open up a dialogue.
An interesting statistics, the number one deterrent to avoid teenage sex is having dinner together as a family.


So, even if it's uncomfortable, we have to tell them the truth.

Small Minds Talk About People, Great Minds Discuss Ideas

Posted by Aaron Walker on Mar 10, 2021 9:00:00 AM

I heard the saying years ago that small minds talk about people and great minds talk about ideas. It is very true! We need to stop talking negative and talk about people. Quit blowing our own whistle, boasting or bragging. We need to start talking about ideas, talking about sharing and helping. A mindset of something like, "How can I help you? What can I do to take you to the next level? What can I do to introduce you to the right person?". Be a part of the solution not part of the problem.

How An Easy Bake Oven Changed Our Family

Posted by Aaron Walker on Dec 2, 2020 9:00:00 AM

We have got to look outward to other people. 

I want to share this story with you guys this morning.  I hope it has an impact on you.  I hope maybe that you'll consider doing something similar to this because it's virtually changed the way we view Christmas.  This story changed our family changed the way we look at things.  It changed the dynamic by which we approach Christmas and it's to look outward.  It is to help other people.

This Is Community

Posted by Aaron Walker on Nov 25, 2020 9:00:00 AM

People always ask me what is. a mastermind. Some people do not know what it means. Let me tell you what it means.

It is a community taking care of its own - helping, supporting and pouring to each other especially on trying times. It is about giving back. It is about watching each other's back.

Get into a community if you are not yet into one. I'd like to encourage you to to that!
