One of the greatest opportunities we have as parents is to have gospel-centered conversations with our children. Yet, issues such as feeling overwhelmed, inadequate, busy schedules, and others often create roadblocks in the face of this powerful opportunity we have been given. We, as a church, want to encourage and equip you to have these conversations with your children no matter their ages. Below are some resources we would like to offer as we challenge you this month to begin taking steps towards gospel conversations with your children. Let us know what questions you have or ways we can come alongside you.
