Overview

Parents can encourage the spiritual growth and experiences of their children through activities both inside and outside the home. Parents in turn can benefit in the process because their own spiritual growth is in many ways similar to that of their child. Children can minister to parents and other adults because they also hear from God and can be used by God. This book provides the foundation for parental nurture of children's spirituality as well as for children's influencing their parents' spirituality. This book explores a wide variety of methods that can encourage mutual spiritual growth of parents and children. Such avenues toward spiritual growth include reading Bible stories, celebrating biblical holidays, participating in church activities, and taking family field trips. Part of this book considers age-specific activities as well.
