Kindergarten. That’s where Cheryl’s son was first exposed to pornography.
How could this happen? Cheryl [not her real name] had taken every precaution to prevent this. As a certified sex addiction therapist, she had a fierce determination to protect her son from pornography. Her home computer was protected by the best filtering systems, and she was cautious about where her son played. She had even invested thousands of dollars to send her son to a well-respected Christian private school.
This is probably the most challenging phase for the majority of parents. Of course, every teenager is different, but this is the transition between childhood and adulthood. Our temptation is to want them to remain children, and they are dying to be adults, hence the tension.
John and Karen Louis, researchers and authors of Good Enough Parenting and ministers in the Central Christian Church, will be collaborating with Lubbock Christian University this fall.
The Denver Church of Christ cordially invites you to join us as we host John and Karen Louis for their Good Enough Parenting Facilitator Training on November 13-16, 2014 in beautiful Denver, Colorado! Full-time ministers, elders/wives, youth and family ministry shepherds, counseling and educational professionals and the like will benefit greatly from this rich and insightful program that has helped many connect with their children and raise fantastic families to the glory of God.
Whether you are a youth pastor that works every day with high schoolers, a teacher in middle school, or a parent of children, you are looking out for these youth in so many aspects of life. One big area of need? Technology. More specifically, the revolution of mobile devices.
We still cannot believe what God has done for us in the past three years within the Southern Africa family of churches. It has been amazing to watch God work and help us revive camp for our children.
Would you like to help parents in your church and in your community using biblically based and professionally developed materials and resources? Would you like to learn great parenting skills for yourself? Would you like to be able to help older disciples who feel stuck spiritually? Would you like to become a facilitator of the “Good Enough Parenting” workshop which has the potential to help your church members as well as have an impact on your friends?

Praise be to God that fathers and son from Mumbai Church packed themselves for a weekend a special bonding time at Khandala titled "You Are My Son". The self sponsored event was attended by 35 Father Son duo. It was first of its kind in our recent history of Mumbai church. We were refreshed by God's word, studying out the scriptures with the sons. We were wet, dirty, stinking with mud and puddle. We ended the retreat with a heartfelt sharing about the jump start we got to keep us connected as Fathers and Sons. Many want to come back again to the hills and create great memories again. Truly it was a victory that only God can give.
