PARENTING TALK #1 – IMAGINE THE END
Talk #1: Imagine the End. We want to inspire parents to start from the very beginning to invest in those things that will matter most to their child’s future. We want them to know that the most important decision their child will ever make is to put their faith and trust in their heavenly Father. As parents, they will play a significant role in the spiritual journey of their child. Click HERE for a transcript. Download the homework HERE.
PARENTING TALK #2 – MAKE IT PERSONAL
Talk #2: Make It Personal. We know that these early years can be exhausting. Taking care of this new little person is hard work!

Talk #3: It’s a Partnership! One of the greatest gifts you, the church, can give your parents is the gift of a partnership.

That’s where you, their church, come in! Click HERE for a transcript.
