Hour 1: Parenting by Faith: What Jesus Said to Parents

What does Jesus have to say to parents?  Did Jesus have a formula for the way He interacted with parents in his earthly ministry? Monday we visit with Patricia Batten about what she learned about parenting from studying the way Jesus interacted and ministered to parents. You’ll be encouraged to hear how Jesus is very personal and present as we ask and as He responds to our cries for help in the parenting journey.


Hour 2: The Blessing

The approval of our parents affects not only how we view ourselves but also our ability to pass that approval on to our children, spouses and friends. We all long for the incredible gift of being blessed by our parents! Monday Ken and Deb will welcome father-daughter team John Trent and Kari Trent Stageberg to explore ways to bless our children and create a lifestyle of blessing others, even if we never have received the gift of blessing.


Hour 3: Morning Devotional

Ken's morning devotional comes from "Strength for the Journey: Day By Day With Jesus" by Joseph Stowell
