Christian parenting is hard work--and it's getting harder. Parents have a deep desire to pass on their faith, but fear that today's increasingly skeptical and hostile world will eventually lead their kids to reject the truth of Christianity. That leaves many parents feeling overwhelmed--uncertain of what they can do to help their children, given the difficulty and extent of the faith challenges they will face. This practical and timely resource gives parents the confidence of knowing what to discuss with their children and how to discuss it in order to facilitate impactful conversations that will form the basis of a lifelong faith. In a friendly, parent-to-parent voice, Natasha Crain identifies 30 specific conversations about God that parents must have with their children, organizing them under the categories of - the existence of God - science and God - the nature of God - believing in God - the difference God makes Chapters are sequenced in a curriculum-oriented way to provide a cumulative learning experience, making this book a flexible resource for use in multiple settings: homes, church classes, youth groups, small groups, private Christian schools, and homeschools. Every chapter has a step-by-step conversation guide with discussion questions and tips, and content is readily adaptable for use with kids of any age (elementary through high school). Endorsements: "My prayer is that God will use this book to both motivate and equip you to help your kids develop convictions about their faith."--From the foreword by Sean McDowell, PhD, Biola University professor, speaker, and author of more than eighteen books, including A New Kind of Apologist "I can't think of a more relevant or more needed book for parents raising kids in today's culture. This book on apologetics will lead parents in critical conversations that will help grow and guide kids to be lifelong followers of Christ."--Kristen Welch, author of Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World "Hey parents: Do you want to reduce the chances that your child will follow the crowd to the point of rejecting Christ and the values and truths you hold so dearly? Then you need to have the conversations that Natasha Crain so brilliantly describes in this book. Prevent heartbreak later by reading and heeding this book now!"--Frank Turek, PhD, president of CrossExamined Ministries and author of I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist and Stealing from God "May this book lead to thousands more Moms and Dads engaging with their kids through an intelligent faith. And may there be tens of thousands more kids who feel loved because the adults in their lives take their questions seriously."--Jeff Myers, PhD, president, Summit Ministries

“The greatest enemy of sexual wholeness today,” asserts Mark Laaser, Ph.D., “is silence.” A therapist specializing in the field of sexual health, Dr. Laaser has worked with hundreds of adults who suffer the consequences of sexual sin and dysfunction. All of them long to have had meaningful conversations with their parents about sex when they were growing up. Most parents would agree that healthy sexuality should be taught at home rather than left to their children’s teachers, peers, or culture. However, even parents with the best intentions can feel at a loss regarding where to start. In Talking with Your Kids about Sex, Dr. Laaser cuts through the confusion, coaching you through specific, age-appropriate discussions you can have with your son or daughter from early childhood through young adulthood; giving guidance on how to explore and examine your own sexual beliefs and issues; and empowering you to help your child develop a healthy and biblical understanding of sexuality, a glorious gift from God.

From the Creator and Coauthor of the Popular 101 Questions Children Ask about...Series--A Practical Guide on How to Build a Strong, Tangible Spiritual Foundation in Your Children's Lives Many of today's parents remember their own childhood experiences with God and religion as abstract and confusing, leaving them with more questions than answers.

Parenting can be the best or worst of times. It can be a role we love best or one that causes great insecurity. There is no formal training for parenthood. There are no clear benchmarks of success and yet it demands all our resources, skills and attention. Parenting has no blueprint. This book is the merging of the author's deep convictions of parenting with examples of both "When it worked" and "When it did not work". He has also elicited the help of his sons to write their perspectives on how their experiences and memories connect (or differ from) his own.Each chapter has two sections. Section A contains reflections on habits that seemed to work in passing on faith. Section B then reflects on the same habit but from a more critical perspective. These five chapters come from the author's experiences as a dad, as a Christian leader and as a theologian. The first section in each chapter marks those habits that he believes in passionately. They are the 'Do's', those habits formed in parenting for faith. They emerged in the business of parenting and have become clearer over life. The second section notes when parenting seemed to go wrong. These are the nightmares that skulk around the edges of a parent's consciousness, the failures, when high hopes are not realised. However it could be that in these 'cock ups' in being a parent are when the actual parenting for faith is really carried out. That at least is the comment made by the three sons commenting on the script.

I’ve often heard it said, “Children don’t come with an instruction manual.” I beg to differ. Children do come with an instruction manual; it’s called The Holy Bible. Raising God’s Children is a manual of sorts based on standard traditional and contemporary Christian values and is loaded with both natural and spiritual wisdom offering insight into what has been learned from every available resource—including, the wisdom of people who have raise

Children Are Gifts from God Disabled Or Not

This is an inspirational, insightful, spiritually sound, informative and compelling testimonial of the journey of a Christian mother of two, one with a mental handicap. You will find a wealth of knowledge and information about raising a child with a mental handicap or any child for that matter as well as an abundance of scripturally based conviction and guidance to face such a disability or child rearing in general. This bears witness as to what we can do with all of the troubles this life brings and where we can turn. The writer hopes this book will facilitate in finding more answers for such unparalleled issues that effect many lives and as such are far too urgent to ignore. God blessed parents and gave them one of His most precious gifts; a child to raise and love in the love we know through Christ which never ends, not even when a disability like this one hits home. You will find that every page reverberates and embraces the scripturally significant indications and the belief that children are gifts from God, disabled or not. God's strength is made perfect in our weakness; so imagine His strength in children, particularly those with a mental handicap or any other type of disability. "This book is a cathartic and heartfelt journey through the thoughts of a woman who has come to grips with the gift of her own child of challenge. It is an often taxing and sometimes painful read as Renee opens wide her heart with no strings attached. This will help many parents through the dark days of dealing with the realization that their child will be different from the other children at play." -Keith Wooden Pastor of Ovid Community Evangelical Church, Anderson, Indiana
