Resources for Families

As Easter approaches, check out these great family resources that equip parents to facilitate meaningful Biblical conversation with children of all ages.

For the last three decades, the idea of the traditional family has been under cultural assault. Every movement from the so-called sexual revolution to same-sex parenting has taken it’s toll on the foundational building blocks of our society. How do parents navigate these challenges? God, the perfect Father, provides the answers. In this short, but wisdom-rich booklet, Alistair Begg, gives practical, biblical instruction on what it looks like to be a father and to be a mother . . . God’s way.

In his book, Tough Questions about the Bible, Beeke leaves no stone unturned by tackling real-life, weighty questions posed to him by students. Tough Questions speaks in language teens will understand, covering topics that include salvation, prayer, eternity, and how Christianity is different from other religions.

 

Designed to be read independently by your teen, Tough Questions is presented in an easy-to-read, Q&A format so that young readers can gain a clear understanding of core Christian beliefs at their own pace.

With that guilt-free vision in mind, here are five quick tips for establishing a regular devotional routine with your toddler.

Ten minutes a day, five days a week is enough time to pass on the most valuable treasure the world has ever known. Long Story Short is a family devotional program designed to explain God's plan of salvation through the Old Testament and is suitable for children from preschool through high school.
