Parenting on Purpose
Reaching the Heart of Your Child
Based on Ginger’s best-selling book, Don’t Make Me Count to Three! There is far more to parenting than getting children to “act” right.

Ginger equips parents to reach past the outward behavior of their children and address the issues of the heart. Move beyond the frustrations of not knowing how to handle issues of disobedience and into a confident approach to raising your children.

Be inspired wherever you are on your God Quest!A powerful journey into the reality of God and what He expects from Eric’s own testimony.

Does your child have a comeback for everything you tell him to do or always try and get the last word, even if it’s mumbled under his breath?

American’s Greatest Sin—It’s Not What You Think

There is one sin that most Christians could hardly identify—let alone define, and it is the catalyst for all these sins...and it’s not unbelief.

Teaching the Child You Have (not the child you want them to be)
We all walk into homeschooling with some sort of preconceived notions, and for most of us... we are in for a rude awakening. Our first year we buy books based on what we like and we plan our days based on our schedules, without taking into account the complete curveball that is our child. How do they learn ?What is their rhythm and routine? What are their interests? These kinds of questions can have a huge impact and adding more kids into the mix can make it difficult to find what will work.

Our goal should be intentional gifts, purposely given to prepare our children for life. Discover the five gifts of intentional parents—all centered around the word TEACH—along with lots of practical tips for giving them.

Why Did Paul Make Tents?
The apostle Paul is credited with spreading the Gospel across the Mediterranean world and writing much of the New Testament. Paul was also a tentmaker, which is a trade he most likely learned from an early age. How did Paul use his trade and business as a conduit for sharing the Gospel, and how should this impact the way we use our own skills, jobs, and businesses?
