Biblical Foundations for Freedom

Biblical Parenting Principles

Modern parenting can be tough. Some say impossible. We ourselves confess that when we started off nearly 25 years ago, we were ignorant. It is not that we wanted to be bad parents. We didn't think we were. We just didn't know any better.

God's design  for parents is found in His Word.God has given us 8 children (5 girls and 3 boys) to give us extra training that spans three decades! We are so appreciative of this opportunity to actually see how families are suppose to work!

We desire to let the younger generations know how to have a wonderful family. It does call for perseverance, courage, self-sacrifice and vision. It makes a positive difference when you know the whys of parenting.

God's design is the best way. It is the only way that brings His blessings into our lives. This seminar is enhanced with many explanative charts and diagrams that highlight God's biblical principles.
