About the Book
Are your children ready to live out their faith in the real world?
Most parents who value Christian faith want their children to enjoy a vibrant, growing relationship with God, both now and throughout their lives. But did you know fewer than ten percent of Christian families engage with one another for the purpose of encouraging or informing their growing faith? And not even one percent can show a written plan that even briefly describes the spiritual direction they are praying for and working toward together.
Do Your Children Believe? appears at a time when a similar moment in history doesn’t sound so incredibly far-fetched: “There arose another generation after them who did not know the Lord or the work that he had done” (Judges 2:10 esv).
Imagine, instead, a generation of your family who knows God with intimate familiarity. Kids who can tell you what they believe and why it matters. Teenagers who handle adversity with the resilient joy of godly wisdom. A family who prays together and worships together and passes these practices along to the next generation.
Inside this book, author Terence Chatmon offers his proven step-by-step process to create a personalized plan that works for children of all ages, even those who are grown and have families of their own. He shares the successes from his many workshop participants and stories of how he, his wife, and children put their plan into living action with remarkable blessings in tow.
These strategies have been home-tested by 100,000 parents.
