This world is going crazy. Our culture is bombarding our children with sinful messages from every direction. The world says, "This is normal, this is good..." about things that are sinful and unacceptable.
You've watched other people's children leave home and abandon the faith of their parents for sinful or lukewarm lifestyles and you don't want your children to follow that example.
As a mom, you desperately long to raise children who love God and who will stand firm in their faith as adults, long after they've left your home. It's easy to feel inadequate for such an eternally significant task...
You have one chance to parent and you must do it well.
You can't hand this responsibility over to anybody else, but you can have some help along the way. That's where I come in.
I believe you don't have to parent like "everybody else" to have children who are strong in their faith. (In fact, you probably shouldn't.)
I believe YOU can give your child a strong foundation for a close, personal walk with God, even if you haven't been formally discipled yourself.
I believe with the Bible as our guide, ordinary parents can raise a generation of extraordinary followers of Christ.
Imagine parenting your children without feeling the need to fit in, or fearing what other people think.
Imagine knowing how to give your children the strong Biblical foundation they need to guide the decisions they will make throughout their lives.
Imagine knowing that your children are no longer borrowing your views, but are standing firm on their own faith.
Imagine being equipped with resources that make discipling your children simple and fun.

When I had my first baby, I didn't have a clue what I was doing. I crumbled under the weight of intense mommy-guit, mentally struggling with everything from "Why is her dirty diaper THAT color? (and is it my fault?)" to "How are we going to raise this baby to be a godly adult who loves the Lord?" I remember looking at her and wishing she had come with an instruction manual... a how-to book of sorts. I desperately wanted a mommy-mentor, somebody who had successfully walked this path before me, whose adult children were still walking with the Lord. Somebody who would tell me what to do so I could get this parenting thing right.
I was determined to find answers so any time I came across somebody like that, I saw it as a learning opportunity! I would
interrogate ask them, "If you could give me just one piece of advice, what is the most important thing you have done to raise godly children?
After listening to hundreds of parents share their best Biblical wisdom with me, I began to see patterns. Soon, I had collected a treasure trove of wisdom from mothers I admired and I started building a parenting toolbox of my own. As I implemented their strategies with my children, I began - by the grace of God - to see very positive results. It turns out that we can all breathe a sigh of relief, because children DO come with an instruciton manual after all... the Bible.
