It has been several years since our daughter Bella emphatically declared that she loved that Patrick was a Pastor.
“Why?”, we asked.
“Because you teach us the Bible.”
Wow, this was an eye-opener for us. From that day forward we have made it a mission to make parents feel as if they can teach their children the Bible…. whether they are a Pastor or not.
Passing on faith is a combination of learning, listening, watching, and doing. God has chosen the family as one of the primary vehicles for passing on faith. Beginning at home, children not only learn God’s Word but also begin to love God’s Word and put God’s ways into practice in every part of life. Ultimately the goal of our teaching as parents is to help our children cultivate a lifelong personal relationship with Jesus.
With that on our hearts we have spent the last several years sharing our lives with you, as well as the words of our contributors to encourage you, equip you, support you, and ultimately point you and your family closer to Christ.
Today, we are thrilled to share with you a foundational family resource that you can use to grow closer to God and each other…..our brand new Faith Forward Family Devotional!
We wrote this devotional for families with children of all ages to help equip and inspire you to raise another generation to love and serve Jesus.
In just a few minutes a day, at your own pace, you can take your family through the entire Bible in one hundred devotions.
Each devotion features:
- A Bible passage—from Genesis to Revelation
- Teaching applicable for kids of any age
- A key idea to learn and remember about God
- Questions designed to spark family discussion
- Guided prayer for the entire family
Grow closer to your kids as they grow closer to God.
Whatever season of parenting you are in, we pray this devotional time together will help your children nourish a faith that lasts a lifetime.
Patrick and Ruth
