4 - Impart Biblical Values

Raise Them in the Discipline and Instruction of the Lord

In this session, Dave speaks directly to fathers about the unique role of spiritual leader that they fill in the home. Children crave their father's approval and look to him for guidance. Moms and dads will both be inspired  from Dave's challenge to deep and significant involvement in their kids' lives.
