Impress Faith on You Kids

Parents want to be involved in the spiritual development of their kids, but where do they begin? How can we help them? Mark Holmen points out that passing your faith to the next generation is significant and encourages parents to build their home on Deuteronomy 6:7. Going beyond the why of passing faith to the next generation, the author gives practical tools for parents to use in sharing faith with their children. His desire for parents to succeed is evident as he shares personal letters with a parent who struggles, as all parents do, to practice this in daily life. Parents will gain a better understanding of God’s plan for passing faith to the next generation and learn practical ways to make it happen in their homes.
