Parents often hear about the importance of family devotions, but I wonder how many parents actually feel readily equipped and personally encouraged in doing family devotions.

One way is to make sure parents have access to biblically-solid, engaging, easy-to-use devotional resources. Toward that end, we are excited to announce a specially discounted Truth78 “Family Devotions Collection.”
Parenting is HARD WORK. PERIOD! Christian parenting is even harder. But God’s Word offers unshakable hope and help for every parent who is trusting in Christ and His good and loving provision.
What we do in children’s ministries will serve to either foster theological confusion or bring gospel clarity. What we begin teaching about the Bible, God, sin, Christ, salvation, and the Christian life from preschool on informs and shapes our children’s theology both now and into their adult lives.

Now more than ever, our children need to know, understand, and embrace the truths of Scripture. Toward that end, they also will benefit from solid Bible resources that not only reveal and explain the grand narrative of Scripture but also clearly help children understand the particular parts. Furthermore, they need Bible resources that serve to guide, challenge, and urgently impress upon them the need to whole-heartedly respond to God’s Word with faith in Christ, resulting in love, honor, obedience, and worship of Him. I am delighted to say that More Than a Story is such a resource. It stands out as a unique discipleship tool for acquainting children with God’s holy Word.... More
What is needed for children to see how true and how glorious, how joy producing is the Christian faith? What will produce in the next generation faithfulness, strength of character, willingness to serve sacrificially—a willingness to go anywhere the Lord might want them to go to be witnesses for Him? What will it take to bring this about in them?
There are many answers to that question. But there is one that is of the upmost importance if children are to grow and have the strength of faith and a joy in the Lord. Consider six reasons why we must pass on to the next generation a high view of God.... More

But I know that, as they grow older, my grandchildren will need to learn how to evaluate what they read for themselves. How will they learn to do this – not only for what they read but also for what they watch and listen to? What kinds of questions should they ask? What kind of standards should they apply?
