Churches and schools are bringing Homes Devoted in to facilitate workshops that will engage, encourage and equip parents in their role as the primary disciple makers of their children. We structure these to have lots of discussion and conversation, so they can last from an hour to two hours, based on your schedule. They will leave with practical tips, ideas and tools to be more equipped to bring God into the normal routine of everyday life! Want these in a weekend? We do that too: Parenting Conference.

- Fairy Tale or Father?

THE ULTIMATE GOAL
Our greatest goal as parents is to help our children love a great God. So, why are the majority of children growing up in the church growing out of faith? We look at scripture and statistics, combined with 20 years of personal ministry experience, to delve into breaking this trend. You will leave inspired and equipped with simple ideas you can apply immediately to make God known in the midst of daily family life, living out Deuteronomy 6. (Click here for more.)
FAIRY TALE OR FATHER?
Children hear about the great miracles God did in the past: parting the Red Sea, Daniel in the lions’ den, Jonah swallowed by a whale, etc.. Do they see what God is doing now? Is God a fairy tale: make believe? Something we grow up and grow out of? Learn how to encourage your child to pray and to see God answer prayer. Holding a child’s hand, in faith, as he/she approaches our heavenly Father, initiates a relationship of trust, obedience, and blessing. (Click here for more.)
“Faith comes from hearing; hearing the word of God.” (Romans 10.17) How will our children grow in faith? By teaching them the Word. How can we have effective family devotions with our young children and teenagers? How can parents teach the Bible, when they may be new to faith themselves? This session offers practical advice that will help parents persevere through the trials of scheduling and executing one of the most important disciplines: reading the Bible together.

PARENTING FOR PURITY
Even from a young age, how can our children remain pure in an impure world? What can we do to equip our children for marriage? With over 50% of marriages ending in divorce, how can we improve the odds? Is the world’s way of dating working? What does the Bible say about it? This workshop will give you direction in preparing your children for a life-changing choice: their future spouse.
If a stranger knocked on your front door hoping to find your child alone, you would notify the police and take extra precautions immediately. YET only 19% of our children’s electronic devices are protected from such a threat. Over 50% of exposure to “bad stuff” is occurring through cell phones. The majority of children stumble upon it accidentally AND takes place in our own homes!!!!….Simply because we left the front door unlocked. Technology is everywhere, but many parents are not aware of the possible dangers or aware of how to safeguard them. (Click here for more.).
