Parenting

Yvette Hampton, producer and host of the upcoming documentary, Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution, brings you encouragement and resources from home education experts and REAL families just like yours, to help you train your children well.

Episodes

Why did God come up with the idea of family and what is His design and plan for relationships within the family unit? How can a husband love and serve his wife? How can a wife love and serve her husband? How can they, together, love and serve their children and what does God's Word say about it?

Join Yvette Hampton as she speaks with Steve Demme, creator of Math-U-See and the founder of Building Faith Families, as he encourages us with what the Lord has taught him through more than 40 years of marriage and parenting.

Come back tomorrow for the conclusion of this conversation.

Crisis to Christ: The Hardest and Best Year of My Life
By Steve Demme / Building Faith Families

Crisis to Christ is the autobiographical account of one year---the "best and hardest"--in the author's life, when the process of transitioning to a family-run business opened up a wellspring of issues springing from past wounds, scars, and baggage. A story of the internal processing and healing that took place, this unique account intersperses' the author's story with advice, encouragement, and exhortation to embrace the cross. This book will affirm others who are going through valleys and tribulations, and provide comfort in reminding readers that every Christian faces trials that God uses to transform us into the image of His Son. 175 pages, softcover.

Family Worship: You Shall Teach Them To Your Children With Audiobook CD
By Steve Demme / Math-U-See

Family Worship is a practical, Scripture-based book filled with tips on teaching the Word of God to children of all ages. Christian parents know that discipling children in the way of the Lord is of paramount importance but it's often difficult to implement. Chapters encourage parents in the necessary nature of their task and help with practical elements like how to create a routine. Stories from the author's own life are integrated throughout, and questions for reflection are given at the end of each chapter. Comes with audiobook CD. 111 pages, softcover.

Psalm 100 ESV

“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!

    Serve the Lord with gladness!

    Come into his presence with singing!

Know that the Lord, he is God!

    It is he who made us, and we are his;

    we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving,

    and his courts with praise!

    Give thanks to him; bless his name!

For the Lord is good;

    his steadfast love endures forever,

    and his faithfulness to all generations.”

"A lot of times parents are fearful because they think "I'm not trained," or "I don't have any special background.", but they are the expert when it comes to their child, so we’re arming them with some good resources. If you have a child with dyslexia, then we're going to point you to resources and books and services for dyslexia or autism because knowledge is power and we battle fear by prayer and trusting in God..." - Faith Berens
