This blog is for parents, grandparents and caregivers of young children.  It is meant to encourage you as you seek to intentionally raise children in the faith and belief in Jesus Christ.  Our goal in this ministry/blog is to encourage you to be:

R – Rooted in the Word of God so you can teach it to your children (Psalm 1:1-3)

O – Obedient to the Word of God so you can teach this obedience to your children (Deuteronomy 8:6)
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=deuteronomy+8%3A6&version=NIV

O – Observant of God’s laws, decrees and commandments in His Word (Deuteronomy 6:1-3)
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=deuteronomy+6%3A+1-3&version=NIV

T – Teaching the Word of God to your children (Deuteronomy 6:4-9)
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=deuteronomy+6%3A+4-9&version=NIV 

It is our responsibility as parents to impart God’s Word to our children.  Church, Sunday school, Wednesday night programs and other events are all useful in helping us in this endeavor but ultimately it falls on us to be the teachers of God’s Word in the home.  Proverbs 22:6 says, “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”  Training up is our job, God will do the rest and I believe that even if we don’t see it in our life time, the promise is there the they will not turn from it when they are old.
