Faith Begins At Home
In the past, faith was a central part of the family's home life, passed on from generation to generation. Today, the reality for many families is that faith is no more than one-hour, drop-off Christianity, if it is present at all. What does this mean for the faith of our children? How will they come to know Christ? And how does a family put Christ at the center of their busy lives?
Grace Based Parenting: Set Your Family Free
Dr. Tim Kimmel, founder of Family Matters ministries, offers a refreshing new look at parenting. Rejecting rigid rules and checklists that don't work, Dr. Kimmel recommends a parenting style that mirrors God's love, reflects His forgiveness, and displaces fear as a motivator for behavior. As we embrace the grace God offers, we begin to give it-creating a solid foundation for growing morally strong and spiritually motivated children.
Visionary Parenting

Shelter
Through his years of ministry, Jimmy Holbrook has seen the need for parents to be intentional about providing an environment where kids can grow up to face the world with a solid, spiritual foundation. Parents are responsible to teach their kids how to function in society as spiritual warriors for Christ. Kids do not leave home without some understanding of relationships, character, or values. It is during those childhood years that parents are called to teach God's truth by talking about it and living it out at home. Shelter is an excellent tool giving parents instruction on the stages of a child's development physically and spiritually. The author shares practical concepts for parents to implement in their home to authentically model the principles of Deuteronomy 6.
