Father-Son Retreat in Mumbai, India

by Monday, 19 August 2013 16:58
Psalms 2:7 I will tell of the decree: The Lord said to me, "You are my Son; today I have begotten you." We live in one of the worlds fastest city, struggling to even get in touch with our hearts, forget getting in touch with others. God is good and he put it our hearts to see certain specifics needs especially the disconnections in vital relationship even between father and sons. 

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.

Good Enough Parenting Training Program

Wednesday, 25 July 2012 02:14

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.

--Proverbs 22:6

We all have heard the above verse quoted in sermons and classes on parenting. We know we need to train our children. But what about training parents in how to train children? When we train our children, how do we train them? If the parents don’t know how to train their children, then, “Houston, we have a problem?” This is why John and Karen Louis developed their Good Enough Parenting Training Program.

We should always look for nuggets of wisdom to help pass along faith to our kids.  At the International Leadership Conference in Denver earlier this month, Sam Laing (Athens, Georgia) and Adrian Hill (London) taught an inspiring and practical lesson entitled "Faith and the Family".

Hezekiah Family Devo on Jacoby Premium Site

by Tuesday, 22 September 2009 09:45

Earlier this year, Douglas Jacoby launched a second teaching website entitled, "Douglas Jacoby Premium Content" (   For a very low yearly subscription rate (it breaks down to only 10 cents a day), families have access to many incredible teaching tools.

 Click here for Hezekiah Family Devotional

The Hezekiah Family Devotional above is just one of numerous resources on the Jacoby Premium website.  Douglas has a commentary for every chapter of the New Testament on the site with built-in links for further study as you go. 

Additionally, every week Douglas uploads a podcast that features a 20-30 minute lesson on characters of the Old Testament.  Included in these Old Testament podcasts are outlines of the character studies as well as devotional ideas and links for the family. 

Click here to visit the Jacoby Premium website and learn more.

Tom and Lori Ziegler have done it again--they have produced a kid-tested, family friendly book of 50 devotionals, this time for preteens and young teens (though most can be adapted to younger children too).

More of the family devotionals that Christian Parenting Today says “are the perfect tool for struggling families. They are short, fun, and truly easy-to-use.” This volume is designed to help parents nurture and teach their preteens and young teens in a world that clamors for their attention and allegiance.  

Texting, Facebook, and Video is a wonderful thing -- or is it? 

Marcus and Amy Overstreet (Fort Lauderdale, FL) explored the relationship between technology and idolatry this summer at the Florida Discipleship Conference.  As parents, youth leaders, and singles, many times we focus on "scary sins" such as sexual impurity and deceit while the sneaky (and often overlooked) sin of idolatry began stealing our hearts long ago.

My Child Has Left the Faith: What Do I Do?

by Friday, 29 May 2009 06:47

One of the biggest challenges we face as parents is passing on a "Legacy of Faith" to our children. It is tempting to lose hope when we experience the heartbreak of our kids wandering away from God. At the ICYFM in April, Bruce and Robyn Williams spoke courageously and candidly on this topic, sharing the powerful testimony of how God has restored hope in their family.
