Resources for Parents

Parenting is tough. How often do we feel like we are never enough? What boundaries do I set up? All of a sudden my toddler has become a teenager and timeouts no longer work – now what?

What does it look like to be Godly parents of teenagers? Am I supposed to lead devotionals at home? How do I have conversations about God with my teenager? When’s the right time to start?

It’s dangerous to go alone. Let’s do this together.

Below are some resources that might help.

You’ve parented for 936 weeks, and your kid has graduated and moved on to what’s next. Whether they still live at home or you’ve already converted their room into a workout studio, you might be in the best phase of your kid’s life. While parenting won’t look the same anymore, it isn’t over yet. Your kid still needs you.

Written for parents with children of any age, this insightful book provides perspectives and procedures for shepherding your child’s heart into the paths of life. Shepherding a Child’s Heart gives fresh biblical approaches to child rearing.

In today’s world, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and even paralyzed by the constant flow of parenting advice. We’re flooded with so much practical information that we wonder if we’re choosing the right way. And we may be missing the one thing God really wants us to give to our children: His life. God doesn’t include a divine methodology for parenting in the Bible, but He does provide principles that can enable any faithful parent to bring His life into the life of their home.

“I’M TOO BUSY!” We’ve all heard it. We’ve all said it. All too often, busyness gets the best of us.

Just one look at our jam-packed schedules tells us how hard it can be to strike a well-reasoned balance between doing nothing and doing it all.

That’s why award-winning author and pastor Kevin DeYoung addresses the busyness problem head on in his newest book, Crazy Busy — and not with the typical arsenal of time management tips, but rather with the biblical tools we need to get to the source of the issue and pull the problem out by the roots.
