Practical Steps for Passing Your Faith

Page 1

There are many important talks that parents should have with their children. Listen to this group of fathers discuss the importance of passing certain core values down to their children. 

We talk about what we know and love! You love God, but do you feel ill-equipped to teach your children about faith? Rob Rienow gives practical steps that parents can use to have the most important talks with their children. Rob is a pastor, the Founder of Visionary Family Ministries and has written a number of books on parenting including Visionary Parenting and When They Turn Away

How could you have simply shared your own faith in that situation?
