Principles and Practices of Biblical Parenting: An Introduction


Principles and Practices of Biblical Parenting: Raising Godly Children reveals the truths and practices needed to raise godly children. God's truth, the Bible, holds these principles and teach you what these timeless principles are and how they practically relate to parenting.

Free parenting video below!


The idea is simple. God is the Designer. Parent His way. We are not experts or perfect parents. We are humbled by our mistakes of the past. Our confidence is that by applying God's principles to family life He will restore the family to its glorious design.

Biblical truths are combined with practical insights gleaned from many years of countless parenting opportunities. New insights arise each day in raising eight children, ages 18 months to 24 years!

This series is in seminar format and enhanced by many diagrams, graphics and clear presentational tools. Get the Parenting Library and get all the powerpoints, audios, videos and even handouts! Feel free to adapt for your purposes. Recently updated (2014)! Our youngest child is now 11!

Introductions to the 12 sessions are below including a free video on Developing Self-control in Your Children.

Integrating God's Truth into Our Families

We have only included this section in the book or on the Parenting Library.

This section describes our own trail to becoming godly parents along with the ups and downs. Many personal accounts bring alive all the former lessons.

We are never alone in parenting.

God our Father works closely beside us. If we are attentive, He leads us carefully through the minefields of myths that are aimed at destroying our goals of raising godly children. The Biblical Parenting Principles series is introduced above, but other helpful parenting articles are offered on the Family Page also from Biblical Foundations for Freedom.

Family Digital LibraryThe BFF Family Library has all the Biblical Parenting Principles for Toddlers materials in printable form as well as the available Powerpoint slideshows and handouts for each session. All our parenting resources are in this one library! The many practical training materials supplied on this one Library can't be found elsewhere. More info.
