  3. A Father’s Blessing: A Bedtime Hotline to God

    A Father’s Blessing: A Bedtime Hotline to God

    Without a doubt, one of the most significant and defining events in our children's lives occurred every night at bedtime. My husband would take Sarah and Jacob aside and have a time of prayer with them. At the end of the prayer time, he would lay a hand on each bowed head, and, using a Blessing Card, he would pray a "blessing" over them. Throughout the years, on good days and bad days, each day ended with a tired father calling out to God to bless his children. It was amazing to see how that blessing time served to calm troubled hearts and instill peace.... More

The need that has always seemed urgent is now even more so. I imagine that you understand and see this need too - in the lives of children, grandchildren, and other children whom you love. Will you take a few minutes to watch this message about providing the next generation with an unshakable hope?... More

    Discipleship—Teaching and Embodying the Gospel

    In these past two months, families have had a lot of “togetherness” time—maybe even too much if you were to ask all involved. During this time, children have had even more opportunities to observe their parents navigating a wide spectrum of difficult circumstances. What did they hear and see? ... More

    Pray with dependence on God’s sovereign grace

    We can faithfully and zealously embrace a biblical vision for the faith of the next generation, foster a robust partnership between church and home, teach the whole counsel of God, proclaim the glorious gospel of Jesus, and disciple mind, heart, and will and yet fail to see the spiritual transformation we long for in our children.
