Foundations in Faith: Teaching the Essentials – Israel Wayne, Part 1

"The beauty of family devotions is that they can be as diverse as the families themselves." ~ Israel Wayne

Watch this full interview on our YouTube Channel.

Israel Wayne joins Yvette Hampton for an enlightening discussion on cultivating a foundation of sound Biblical faith in ourselves and our children through the use of a modern Catechism – a set of questions and answers used to teach doctrine. Establish a sound family statement of faith, delve into how families can effectively teach and defend Christian beliefs, and explore the importance of scripture in understanding fundamental doctrines. This resource-packed episode will equip parents with tools for guiding their children towards a deeper understanding of the Word of God, with practical applications and a scripture-centric approach. Whether you're a new believer or a seasoned veteran in the faith, this episode will strengthen your spiritual foundation. Tune in to Schoolhouse Rocked for your weekly dose of faith, family, and homeschool encouragement! #FoundationsInFaith #ChristianDoctrine #FamilyDevotions
