Raising Children

What does the Bible say?

Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it. Proverbs 22:6 – NLT

Passing on your faith to your children is no easy task. It’s more than just taking them to church and letting their Sunday School teacher do the job. Letting them see you living out your faith will have a profound effect on them.  Don’t be afraid to help your kids experience your faith. It’ll help you grow together.
