If it’s true that we get what we measure, can you conceive of a reality where we would put aside the archaic practice of measuring attendance and offerings, and replace it with measuring the progress of faith life at home? Now, for the first time, readers can discover what is truly happening in the homes of churchgoing people based on groundbreaking new research of over 6000 church goers across 12 denominations. • What good is our discipleship if it is not being lived and expressed at home? • What good is our evangelism if 60+% of our kids are walking away from the faith because of the hypocrisy they saw at home. • What good is our missionality if we are doing one thing in the world and another thing at home? • What good is our worship if that’s all people do, spiritually, once a week? Get ready, this book is going to be revealing, challenging yet incredibly helpful in showcasing faith life at home realities church leaders have overlooked for far too long.
As a parent you are leaving an impression on your children that is going to last them their lifetime. The question becomes, what type of impression are you leaving and is that impression going to lead them towards or away from having a lasting faith in Jesus Christ? At the end of the day, the most important thing we can lead our children to have is faith in Jesus Christ because through faith in Him they can have eternal life. So, how do we lead children to have faith in Christ? That's what Pastor Holmen will reveal based on the work and research he has been doing for over 15 years. Pastor Mark's desire for parents to be "impressive" parents who succeed in leading their children to have faith in Christ is evident as he shares many practical ideas as well as personal letters at the end of each chapter written to a parent who was struggling, as all parents do, to practice this in daily life.
A book for parents that will inspire, motivate, and equip them to establish their home as the primary place where faith is nurtured. This book is filled with inspirational stories and practical ideas that families can begin implementing today to bring Christ and Christlike living into the center of their homes. This resource is a perfect gift to give to new parents. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter make it a perfect resource for family small groups.
