Parents for Life
Whether our children are infants or adults, once we have them, we are parents for life. Wouldn’t it be great if we couldn’t have children until we passed Parenting 101 with flying colors? With “Parents for Life”, our Bible-based parenting course, you are well equipped to give your children the solid start they need in life.
Unfortunately, most of the time as parents we learn as we go. We learn from relatives and friends, from books we read and videos we watch, we learn from radio and television..and mostly we learn that we really don’t know much about what we are doing.
Wouldn’t it be great to learn from the Lord who gave us our children in the first place? He created each one of them unique and special and He is the one who knows what each one needs and what will help each one grow and thrive.
