This leads to teaching and discipleship and is individualized and immediate.”
“As parents we determined that we are not raising children, we are raising adults. Having been very blessed with godly parents who were engaged and intentional in their discipleship with us, we had so much more to build upon than most other parents we know. We want to share what we have learned, from our parents and from our life, with other families to strengthen them and draw them closer to each other and closer to the Lord.”
