Reaching the Heart of Your Child

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.

Raising a prodigal is every Christian parent’s worst nightmare. Horrifyingly, George Barna contends that over 60 percent of Christian kids will run off to university and "lose their faith." But there is great news! Your child doesn't have to become a statistic. Your child can become an adult who loves the Lord the same way you do - but this will likely require a radical parenting reset on your part.

How to Parent without Provoking Children to Anger
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? Does he become mad and lose control when you discipline him rather than repenting? Or does he seem indifferent, giving the impression that discipline doesn’t faze him in the least? Through biblical insights and powerful drama, learn how to avoid the snares of parent-provoked anger and raise emotionally healthy children.

Faith is for Weak People—The Top Ten Reasons not to Believe in God
What do you say if your son or daughter, your nephew, or the neighbor that you’ve been taking to church suddenly says to you that there’s no evidence for God, that Christianity is just blind faith, has caused more wars than anything in history, and that endless suffering proves that God doesn’t exist?

Raise Them Up, Don’t Crush Them Down (formerly The Strong-Willed Parent)
Children need to hear the beating of our hearts not the beating of our voices. Rules can change behavior, but they can’t change the heart. Discipline is needed for disobedience, but not without mercy. As each day begins with compassion, children will feel safe to admit their faults and seek help from those they love. It is love, not fear, and grace, not law, which redeems. Join Mark as he shares a true story and unforgettable lesson that you don’t become a shepherd just because you own sheep.

How do they learn ?What is their rhythm and routine? What are their interests?
