Let's be honest, parenting is difficult. Christian parents have an incredible responsibility to raise their children under the regular teaching of the Scripture. (Proverbs 22:6, Ephesians 6:4, Titus 2:7) This occurs every week at Redeeming Grace Fellowship, but it must also be done consistantly at home by Christian parents. Reliable Christian resources casn be helpful in guiding parents as they seek to lead their children. Below are many excellent resources that can assist parents in their efforts to lovingly point their children to Jesus.
