Parenting for the Kingdom

Bill White • May 4, 2013

Relationships between husbands and wives, children and their parents, are bursting with hot-button issues. Family has all the marks of a cultural crisis. Within that fog of questions and confusion regarding family, light can indeed cut through. Far from the picture of a distantly removed god, scripture presents a loving Creator who speaks directly into the nooks and crannies of our every-day life. This May’s series Parenting by Design will peer into how God personally and strategically designs parenting to further his glory. His plan also lays down a blueprint, which invites us to nurture and launch the next generation for his fame and our flourishing.
