Parenting Children for a Life of Faith - the book
Written by Rachel Turner back in 2010, Parenting Children for a Life of Faith (published by BRF) 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 are perfectly positioned to help our children and teens connect with God personally. The book explores how 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 so that we can help them to become God-connected rather than just God-smart.
How the book's organised
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.
