Overview

What I wish we had known: a helpful resource for parents and children's workers who are concerned about keeping kids in the faith. Woven into each chapter are concrete steps church leaders can take to ensure the successful partnership of church and home. The material in the book is well supported with generous quotes from the very best minds in the field of discipleship as well as lessons learned from my thirty years of practical experience in this area. Each chapter concludes with a practical resource list for readers who seek more information. It is my hope that readers will be inspired, encouraged, and energized as they are introduced to new strategies and resources for a faith foundation in the lives of children.
