Learn to Confidently Teach Your Kids About God

Who is shaping what your kids believe?

In these busy, hectic days we take our kids to sports practices, games, music lessons, school tutoring and other activities to give our children the best opportunities for success. But what if we're missing the chance to teach them what matters most?

Our children can grow up smart, athletic, popular and polite but lack a vibrant relationship with Christ. The few hours they spend in church each week can be helpful, but it cannot nurture a faith in our kids that will withstand the trials that are on the horizon. Church alone cannot teach them, we must start at home. But many parents feel ill equipped to develop the faith of their children.

In these six sessions, we will explore biblical and tangible ways that parents—couples, single parents, blended families and grandparents—can build a legacy of faith for their children.

Each Bible study session includes interviews with everyday parents talking about their own doubts, fears and desires. Gary Thomas, Matt Chandler, and Kurt and Olivia Bruner provide powerful teaching that will help you give your kids what they need to build a solid framework for lifelong faith.

Six video-driven sessions:
Session 1 - Faith: It Starts At Home (38 min.)
Session 2 - Marriage: Your Children Are Watching (27 min.)
Session 3 - Relationships: Your First Priority (31 min.)
Session 4 - Truth: What Are Your Kids Learning? (26 min.)
Session 5 - Communication: Each Child is Unique (26 min.)
Session 6 - Character: Preparing Your Kids For the Real World (26 min.)

This series includes 8 real-life stories, 6 filmed Family Night Activity examples, and 6 original illustrations including:

    •    Trials Build Deeper Trust - Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor of The Village Church near Dallas, and his wife, Lauren, share how the Lord has expanded their faith and caused them to live more intentionally with the discovery of Matt's malignant brain tumor.

Gary Thomas believes couples often settle for too little when it comes to marriage. We fail to understand how deeply God cares about our spouse. We diminish our need to not only understand what biblical love really is, but also to become a people who excel at it. We let ourselves drift apart instead of making the daily choices to grow closer together.

Whether your marriage needs a complete makeover, a touch up, or just a new purpose, this video series based on Gary's book, A Lifelong Love, promises to set your relationship on an entirely new dimension. You will never look at worship or your spouse in the same way again. Gary will guide you through the power shifts and seasonal mine fields that blow up so many marriages so that you can grow in your love instead of in your disappointment.

What if you stopped looking for a "soul mate" and started looking for a "sole mate" - someone who will live out with you the great purpose of God? What if dating isn't about finding "the one" but making a wise choice so you can better serve the One who loves you most? What if God didn't design relationships to make you happy but to make you holy?

In The Sacred Search, Gary Thomas will transform the way you look at romantic relationships. Whether you are single, dating, or engaged, Gary's unique perspective on dating will prepare you for a satisfying, spiritually enriching marriage even before you walk down the aisle. As Gary reminds us, a good marriage is not something you find-it's something you make.

Aprende a enseñarles a tus hijos sobre Dios con confianza.

¿Quién está formando lo que tus hijos creen?

En estos días ocupados y agitados, llevamos a nuestros hijos a practicar deportes, juegos, clases de música, apoyo escolar y otras actividades para darles las mejores oportunidades para que tengan éxito. Pero ¿y si nos estamos perdiendo la oportunidad de enseñarles lo más importante?

Nuestros hijos pueden crecer inteligentes, atléticos, populares y educados, pero pueden carecer de una relación viva con Cristo. Las pocas horas que pasan en la iglesia cada semana pueden ser útiles, pero no pueden alimentar una fe en nuestros hijos que resista las pruebas que están en el horizonte. La iglesia sola no puede enseñarles, debemos empezar en casa. Pero muchos padres no se sienten capacitados para desarrollar la fe de sus hijos.

En estas seis sesiones, exploraremos maneras bíblicas y tangibles para que los padres, parejas, padres solteros, familias ensambladas y abuelos puedan construir un legado de fe para sus hijos.

Cada sesión de estudio bíblico incluye entrevistas con padres comunes que hablan sobre sus propias dudas, temores y deseos. Gary Thomas, Matt Chandler y Kurt y Olivia Bruner brindan una enseñanza poderosa que los ayudará a darles a sus hijos lo que necesitan para construir un marco sólido de fe que dure para toda la vida.

Seis sesiones en video:
Sesión 1: Fe: empieza en casa (38 min.)
Sesión 2: Matrimonio: sus hijos ¡los están viendo! (27 min.)
Sesión 3: Relaciones: tu primer prioridad (31 min.)
Sesión 4: Verdad: ¿qué están aprendiendo sus hijos? (26 min.)
Sesión 5: Comunicación: cada hijo es único (26 min.)
Sesión 6: Carácter: preparar a los hijos para el mundo real (26 min.)

• Las pruebas ayudan a construir una confianza más profunda

• Arriba/Abajo
