Change can happen in our culture.
It can happen in our home and in our children.
But it starts with us.

Amorality, dishonesty, discontent—you want your children to reject today’s norms in favor of values like integrity, wisdom, and forgiveness. But how can you train them to do this when you sometimes fall short yourself?

Author, speaker, and Moms in Prayer podcast host Lee Nienhuis offers guidance to every parent seeking to raise Jesus-following kids. In Counter-Cultural Parenting, she provides tools that will help you…
  • model godly characteristics and biblical values in your own life and home
  • energize your family to recognize the world’s lies and devote yourselves to truth
  • entrust your children’s future to God through consistent, powerful prayer
It’s easy to look at the world and feel overwhelmed, but you don’t need to lose hope. Embrace the calling God has set before you and know that He will empower you to nurture your children’s faith.
