Parenting for Spiritual Impact

Parents, the articles here are not to provide quick fixes for your teenager(s). They are also not here to condemn you. If you have condemning thoughts, pray and claim God’s forgiveness as demonstrated on the Cross by Jesus Christ.

The goal of parenting is to pass on our faith to our children – to help them realize that we are all created in the image of God, but because of sin, we are all sinners and we cannot have any relationship with God except by putting our faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior . We want to teach and model for them how to live as a child of God who is fully loved by God and fully saved into the family of God. We want to teach them that, as a child of God, we are daily dependent on the Holy Spirit to be obedient to God. These articles serve to help us think about how we can parent our children so that their faith in God will become their own and so that they will grow as disciples all the days of their lives until we meet Jesus or Jesus comes back (whichever comes first).
