Nurturing children in the Christian faith is a privilege given to all of us whose prime job it is to raise children. God’s desire is that our parenting should guide each child to meet and know him, and to live with him every day through to eternity.
‘Parenting Children for a Life of Faith’ explores how the home can become the primary place in which children are nurtured into the reality of God’s presence and love, equipped to access him themselves and encouraged to grow in a two-way relationship with him that will last a lifetime.
The basic principle behind the ideas explored is that we need to model for our children what it means to be in a relationship with God rather than just equipping them to know about him – helping our children to be God-connected rather than just God-smart.
The material is organised into three parts, which progressively explore:
Discipling our children proactively
Modelling the reality of being in a relationship with God
Tying together truth and experience
Connecting children to God’s heart
Implementing a plan
Each chapter includes encouraging true stories and questions to help us reflect on our own experience as we journey together with our children.
