3 - Grace in Families

Add Value to Your Family

Within the confines of family relationships, God can do some of His greatest acts of sanctification and redemption. Families are often a place where we face our greatest trials, but it is also here where we can find God's grace working. Here in Part Three, Tim talks about the common links grace-filled families have and how their attitude of being deliberate in parenting and serving others makes all the difference in the world.

  1. Parents lead the family spiritually.
  2. Attitude of servanthood.
