Hello everyone. My husband and I recently attended a wonderful weekend parenting conference put on by NANC (National Association of Nouthetic Counselors- www.nanc.org ). This training is all from a biblical perspective.

I do feel led to post a few messages about parenting from a biblical perspective. It is so important these days to keep our homes Christ-centered. If you do not have children yet, or your children are already grown, maybe you can pass these on to someone else who might need them or save them for future use. :)

Keep this in mind: All growth and change that we would like in our families begins with us first. As we grow and change into Christ-likeness, the easier it is for our families to learn to grow and change. The more we allow ourselves to be "shepherded" by the Good Shepherd, the better shepherds we will be for our children.

Next time I will discuss our job as parents and how we are to "shepherd our children's hearts" and how the gospel should be central to raising our little lambs.
