Parenting and Houseparenting
The main thrust of my workshops is to explore parenting from the exclusive perspective of God's counsel; the Bible. When this angle of parenting is applied, it is effective and fruit bearing in the lives of children. When you extract expertise from the one who has created all children in His image you are embarking on a powerful juncture that will work for you.
It is when we trust and believe the counsel of the word of God that we will open ourselves to a wonderful benefit. Many miss these benefits because they might depend on their limited experience of parenting and the imperfect counsel of others. God's word is sure and perfect; it is absolute and given to fully use. The Bible's advice and our relentless openness to God's instruction is what we will solely look to for guidance and direction as we look at examples and gain ideas in Christian parenting; the key is application of God's truth in all parenting situations.
