Overview

Parents want to be involved in the spiritual development of their kids, but where do they begin? How can we help them? Mark Holmen points out that passing your faith to the next generation is significant and encourages parents to build their home on Deuteronomy 6:7. Going beyond the why of passing faith to the next generation, the author gives practical tools for parents to use in sharing faith with their children. His desire for parents to succeed is evident as he shares personal letters with a parent who struggles, as all parents do, to practice this in daily life. Parents will gain a better understanding of God's plan for passing faith to the next generation and learn practical ways to make it happen in their homes. Each chapter ends with discussion questions for individual or small group study.

Read an Excerpt

During the past 15 years of ministry, I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with thousands of parents. I can say with complete conviction that I do not believe we have bad parents today. In fact, I believe just the opposite: today we have parents who are absolutely committed to doing whatever it takes to be the best parents they can be, seeking to establish a more stable houshold than the one they grew up in. Why is that the case? Because the majority of young adults who are becoming parents today grew up in broken or dysfunctional families with marginally committed parents. As a result, they have seen first-hand the pain this can cause a child. Thus, many young adults today are waiting longer to marry and have children because they don't want to make the same mistakes their parents made. I often here, "I am not going to put my kids through what I had to go through. I'm going to be a better parent." And that's my starting point. You don't want to simply be a good or average parents, but I believe you want to be the very best parent possible. But what would qualify someone to declare, "I'm a great parent"? A great parent is one who leads his/her children into life not death.
